My name is Dr John McDonald. I am a qualified Psychotherapist accredited by the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I am based in Rugby and ideally located for Real Talk clients to travel from Coventry, Daventry, Lutterworth, Nuneaton and beyond.

I offer one-to-one counselling and psychotherapy on an open-ended basis lasting as long as you need. I also offer short term counselling and I have experience of working with adults of all ages on a wide range of issues and difficulties.

In life we can experience times when emotional difficulties, depression, anxiety are prominent and will not disappear. For some people such emotional issues feel like they have been with them their entire life, that they are immovable and all consuming.

Counselling and Psychotherapy is often sought when such difficulties feel overwhelming, or are impairing the quality of life by impacting relationships, work, family or possibly leaving a deep sense of despair.

As a qualified and UKCP Accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist I am experienced in helping people who experience difficulties with many issues including:

  • Abuse
  • Addiction
  • Anxiety
  • Bereavement
  • Depression
  • Low self-esteem
  • Relationship problems
  • Trauma
