Donald Henderson is patient, compassionate, thoughtful and listens well. He offers good, practical advice, in session and with articles he has written that are helping me to learn to better deal with and get past the issues I am dealing with. In that we have only met 5 times so far, we are still in the beginning stages of the therapy journey. I look forward to working with him more.

I heard that it is quite normal to change therapists until you find one you like. Donald was the first therapist ever in my life that I was suggested to work with and I truly felt was a great match. He helped me feel seen, heard and assured me that my emotions were valid. Not only did he help me feel seen, heard and valid but in doing so I was able to slowly start recognising that within myself. Which is one of the biggest gifts we can all hope to develop - the recognition of self. Probably the first time I genuinely felt a therapist who not only cares about what they do but with it, the people they are helping. My experience so far while seeing Donald has been transformational in terms of strengthening and developing that relationship with myself and I believe he has had an impact to help me navigate my healing journey better. I am grateful to have not only someone to speak to but someone who can give amazing objective guidance while showing genuine empathy and respect for my journey and story. I would highly recommend Donald to anyone who is looking for a genuine support system in their life to help navigate their own personal journey, perhaps more smoothly if anything. No matter where you’re at in your journey, Donald is the one you want to be that support.

Kirk is an amazing therapist who has helped me massively in coping with a girl who I was madly in love with but doesn’t reciprocate much. I have went from having insomnia, doubting myself, clingy, feeling insecure, anxious and depressed, into a more confident and secure individual who is now feeling better prepared for all existing and upcoming challenges in life, especially relationship-wise. High recommend him if you have any relationship / self esteem / neediness / family issues.

Having had just a few sessions with Donald. He has listened intently and provide guideance and excellent resources which are specific to my area of anxiety/trauma. I can highly recommend Donald's compassion and care and understanding of mental health issues and therapy. I will be continuing to have sessions with Donald until I feel I can cope fully myself to navigate and continue on my recovery.

Written on Aug 31, 2021 after therapy with Donald for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and family conflicts

Donald is so lovely, so kind and so understanding which makes you feel safe! I have never done therapy before, so for me this is new but I feel safe expressing my feelings and saying it as it is to Donald and sometimes we even have a little laugh together, which is so comforting! We’re only in our early stages (3 sessions in) but I already feel like I am understanding my feelings a lot better and I realize things looking back on our sessions that help me in the stressful situations! Donald has given me lots of great tips on how to deal with some of my issues and it’s really great, he has helped me a lot through some tough times!

Kirk (Donald) is a wonderful counselor. It’s not often I feel at ease talking with someone so quickly and can truly open up. He is empathetic and supportive and helps guide me along without overstepping. He also has an intuitive way of knowing when I could use extra support or a check in without me having to ask or message him. I truly appreciate his check ins. I’m looking forward to working with him long term.

Donald is very understanding and he makes you feel like your sessions are a safe space to express your issues. I have been struggling with depression for awhile and after one session with Donald, I already started to feel weight off of my shoulders. I have had a few sessions with him now and every time we have a session, he never fails to see my true feelings. He helped me understand myself better and understand why people act certain ways. He is very compassionate and I appreciate all his efforts to help others.
