Every week, we take a sneak peek into a P.S. reader’s world via the magic of Instagram.
Psychotherapist Donna Davies, 49, has four grown-up children and three granddaughters.
The Elgin-based granny works with adults, teens and children and volunteers for Cruse Bereavement Care.
Here she shares her Instagran snaps from her album.
Out of office
This is my graduation in 2009, having decided that office work wasn’t for me.
I decided to retrain as a counsellor and psychotherapist after a family bereavement and attended college for three years to qualify.
I have since built up my Elgin practice and now counsel one day in a primary school, one day in a secondary school, and lecture one day at the college, having recently ended a contract working at Her Majesty’s Prison Grampian.
I feel blessed
I’m a proud mum to four grown-up kids, Jorden, Calum, Kayleigh and Roy.
Kayleigh is building a career in interior design and is far too busy to have children. But the others have blessed me with three gorgeous grand-daughters; Mollie, seen here blowing bubbles, Lucy, riding the pink car and Maddison, who is trying to escape the madness of the ball pool. This photo was taken at Mollie’s 2nd birthday.
Mark’s my support
This photo was taken at the Scottish Parliament at Holyrood, and was a very proud moment for both me and my husband Mark.
Cruse Bereavement Care Scotland invited me to speak about why I volunteer for the organisation, and the rewards of working with bereaved children and adults.
It was a nerve-racking experience but one which I thoroughly enjoyed. Mark has supported me throughout and I couldn’t have come this far without him.
A dog’s life for me
I love my dogs, and my dogs love me. Meet Tavish the black cocker spaniel, Bonny, a brown cocker spaniel, Sula, a Bavarian mountain hound, and our newest addition, Alfie, who is one of Sula’s nine pups.
Technically, Tavish and Bonny are mine and Sula and Alfie are Mark’s, but a cuddle is a cuddle and they don’t care who they get it from.
They give me the perfect excuse to chill out in the forest or at the beach nearby.
