Dayna Donsky

PsychSc (Hons), MPsychClin, MAPS

I am a Clinical Psychologist with experience working in private, educational and community health settings.

My training has given me the opportunity to work with adults, older adults, children, and families. I draw upon a mix of evidence-based and person-centred therapies including psychoanalytic therapies, attachment-based treatment, emotion-focused, and trauma-informed approaches.

I generally work with individuals experiencing generalised anxiety and depression, post-traumatic stress, complex trauma, self-esteem issues, and those experiencing general dissatisfaction or interpersonal challenges within relationships.

More specifically, I have worked with individuals experiencing:

  • Anxiety and depression
  • Complex trauma
  • Sleep disturbances/issues
  • Low self-esteem
  • Interpersonal/relationship difficulties
  • Attachment based issues

What to expect in therapy with me:

In our sessions, I draw from an experiential model which means that our work together is generally an ongoing construction of your experience, a constant process and evolution rather than a narrow criterion of improvement. Our sessions are about developing an awareness of vulnerable parts of self and the ways you have protected them or the burdens they carry, with close observation of the way your body reacts. I recognise that the key organising factor in our sessions is your emotions and I support you to get to ‘the heart of the matter’.
