Change is possible

Take a step towards healing

Anxiety, stress, depression or eating disorders, among other mental health issues, will be experienced by most of us at one time or another. Equally, grief and loss are a part of life but few of us ever anticipate how much it will affect us or know how to deal with the emotions that arise from it.

Counselling and psychotherapy provide us the tools to understand ourselves, our motivations and ultimately how to steer our lives in a positive direction.

Welcome to 

Donadea Counselling

County Kildare

Everyone comes to therapy because there’s something that they want to change or learn how to cope with. Regardless of your reason for coming, be it low self-esteem, intimacy issues or a life transition, I won’t judge, I’ll listen. I’ll accept you for who you are and help you to get to a better place.

― Maria 


I provide counselling and psychotherapy both in-person at my clinic near Prosperous, County Kildare and online, according to your needs and preference. I treat a wide range of issues including eating disorders (bulimia, BED, anorexia), depression and anxiety

Eating disorders and body image issues are one of my areas of special interest and I'm passionate about helping people to find ways to love themselves and learning how to control their eating instead of it controlling them.

Are you or a loved one feeling low all the time, finding it hard to get out of bed or get motivated? Depression affects almost everybody at some point in their lives. I regularly help people with confidential support to overcome this treatable condition.

If you’re in County Kildare and find that you need help with stress, panic attacks or anxiety, I help people of all walks of life to find healthy ways to manage these increasingly common modern-day issues.
