About Donna Marie
You Deserve to Feel Great. I’m Here to Help.
I am here to help you.
I have 23 years of dedication and devotion to mental health and well-being.
I graduated from Oxford Brookes University in 2005 with a degree in mental health nursing.
Since then, I have dedicated my life to the mental well-being of my patients from a forensic setting to those who seek help with self-confidence, self-esteem, grief, the breakdown in a relationship, or in recent times dealing with the effects and aftereffects of covid.
I bring empathy and care and a helping hand to help you to overcome challenges that are impacting your mind.
Contact me and let me help you release barriers that will restore you to where you would like to be.
I am a registered senior mental health nurse practitioner with over 20 years of experience in nursing care including 14 years specialising in forensics. I have a mission to provide compassionate care and support to everyone.
I have also worked in eating disorder units, acute and rehabilitation hospitals, and with electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), personality disorders, learning disabilities, and drug and alcohol problems. And I have worked with severe enduring mental illnesses such as bipolar affective disorder, schizophrenia spectrum disorders, severe major depression, autism and attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD).
In my recent and final post within the NHS spanning 3 years, I worked as a clinical supervisor.
During the covid outbreak, I became more focused on setting up a practice so I could work as a holistic practitioner helping people who are stuck on never-ending waiting lists getting assessed and accessing support for mental health issues, focusing on areas that I have both professional and personal experience in: depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), stress and bereavement. Although classed as minor mental illnesses there is nothing minor about them. Anyone who has suffered from any of these conditions will know they invade every aspect of well-being. The impact is enormous, debilitating, invasive and relentless.
My role and promise is to support you to fulfil your life. I want to make a difference and one of my roles will be to teach and advise on mental health by encouraging healthy behaviours and treating symptoms early with early intervention. I am caring, compassionate and empathic with a non-judgmental attitude to your individual circumstances. I am proud of my profession as I play a humanitarian role in society. Versatile and multi-skilled, my goal is to provide optimal clinical outcomes, incorporating the six values of nursing: care, compassion, competence, communication, courage and commitment.
My experience allows me to care for a wide variety and range of individuals.
I will provide you with the best care and support that you need to recover and maintain optimum mental health.
I will walk with you; I will help you find meaning and understanding of your experience. I will give you the tools of the trade. You will feel able, energised, and determined to heal, grow, release, expand and move on. It is time to heal all emotional wounds, self-limiting beliefs, negative thought spirals and unhealthy habits: all the baggage and burdens you would like to release and leave behind… You can turn a corner by letting go and this all starts here.
Have you been thinking about a total life overhaul, a complete top-to-toe transformation? The power is with you right now to transform and develop – do not waste it.
I will put you at the heart of everything I do.
“Nursing is an art… it is one of the fine arts: I had almost said, the finest of fine arts.” Florence Nightingale.
“I have known Donna for twenty- five years, in which she has helped me recover from difficult times,
Once was in helping care for my very elderly Father, I could not fault her, she was emphatic, patient, and someone I trusted implicity.
Also she helped me when I had a breakdown, which I will always be in debt to her.
I would have no hesitancy in recomending her, she is always ready to listen and give advice.”
Mrs Avis Marshall
