Donna Murphy holds a Master’s degree in Social Work and is registered with the Alberta College of Social Workers. She specializes in individual/couples and family counselling, a Certified Meditation Instructor, and holds certification in Adult Education. Her approach is to use a combination of spiritual and counselling techniques such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Narrative therapy.
Donna’s practice is working with couples, co-parenting, blended families, parenting issues, stress/anxiety and healing from trauma.
Her approach to therapy integrates meditation, spirituality, mind/body connection and cognitive reshaping. She has been practicing for 12 years in a variety of settings such as government, employee assistance programs, lunch and learn sessions and working for non-profit organizations .
Her overall approach to working with others is to create a safe place that is not judgmental where clients are able to fully explore their reactions in a compassionate manner. She understands that in order for people to heal from their wounds, they must first feel safe to explore their inner authentic selves.
Some of her clients describe her as “getting to the root cause and unlocking a key” and using a strengths based approach realizes that we are all human and want to be happy. She states “having a healthy and loving relationship begins with having a healthy loving relationship to oneself”.
Donna is developing a workshop for couples that will help couples understand what it means to be in a loving, healthy, and connected relationship. The workshop is being developed from what she sees in her practice with couples. She uses her own approach to working with couples that helps them to develop the skills in communication, understanding how to make a relationship work, understanding why we are in relationships in the first place, and how to begin loving ourselves in order to free us to love another.
Her speciality includes couples therapy, spirituality, family conflict, parenting both young children to adult children, individuals who struggle with stress and anxiety, helping others learning to live their best life.
Her office has parking and is in a central location in Calgary, Alberta.
