Donijka holds BSc in honours psychology and a post graduate diploma in counselling and psychotherapy. In addition, Donijka also has experience within the field of online support, through her previous voluntary work with an Irish based suicide prevention website.
Donijka runs her own private practice in Castlerea Co. Roscommon and is also a group facilitator for mindfulness courses and workshops in her local area.
Donijka believes in a multidisciplinary approach to well being, incorporating in addition to personal work, diet, exercise, writing/journalling, artistic expression and a reconnecting with the self through nature.
Her interests in relation to the field of psychotherapy include mindfulness and increased self awareness, the impact of unresolved grief, the physical symptoms of emotional pain, the legacy of wounding handed down through generations, the impact of the “ripple effect” when one person decides to change, the impact of power and its loss and misuse
Donijkas belief that support should be available to those in need regardless of their position, geographic, emotional or financial, made online counselling with the IOCPS a natural progression.
