About me

Hello, my name is Lorna . I  am  a qualified counsellor registered and accredited with BACP (British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists) . I am also a qualified supervisor of counsellors. You are welcome  to  ring or email me to enquire about  arranging  your first appointment . In this way  you can start the process of  working  through the  issues that are bothering you at this moment. Good parking, private  and rural setting . The first session is an assessment session where we can work together to arrange counselling for you in a way that meets your needs.

I offer a counselling service for those of 18 years old and older, that has benefited those that are feeling low for many  reasons. Perhaps you are feeling  depressed or sad. Maybe your are  experiencing work related stress, bereavement , low self esteem, health related issues, have been sexual abused, suffering from anxiety, having relationship problems or are in search of general counselling for other reasons?

I am  based within easy reach of Boston , Sleaford, Spalding , Long Sutton,Kings Lynn and Lincoln. I offer face to face , long and short term counselling. My  counselling room is based  in my home, not in a public place, within   private and secluded grounds in a rural area where you can park easily.

I  offer sessions at various times during the day on Wednesdays and Thursdays . Please contact me on 07765 227485 or email me as above.

I very much enjoy counselling. I  decided to train as a counsellor as having worked as a trained nurse for many years I felt that the emotional part of supporting patients was what particularly appealed to me. This has been useful in counselling clients with health and illness related issues and bereavement. As my children have been young I have been able to practice from home having  fulfilled this ambition of becoming a counsellor.

I enjoy riding my ponies and walking my dog as this is my way of relaxing and staying stress free and healthy.

I am a qualified  counsellor  having studied for 3 years to gain an ABC level 4  diploma in the theory and practice of counselling in 2010.
I practice within the ethical framework of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy of which I am a Registered and Accredited member. I fulfil their criteria by having monthly supervision by a qualified counsellor that is a registered member of BACP that has trained as a supervisor.

I also regularly update my knowledge by doing continual professional development as per BACP requirements.

In my experience I have worked with those that for example may feel   low in mood, have been suffering from depression and are   feeling anxious .Sometimes this anxiety can lead   on to   feeling panicky or suffering from panic attacks. There are varying reasons for this that I have been able to enable clients to work through.

Relationship issues, work related stress,  bereavement ,low self esteem and health issues are other common issues that bring people to my counselling practice. Some just come for sessions to work out what is triggering them to feel as they feel.

I hold a 2:1 honours degree in Health and Social care which I feel helps me to empathise with many of the issues  that people bring to counselling .I have worked as a volunteer on the telephone helpline for a national crisis help line  in the past and completed the ASIST suicide course in 2008, so I feel that I can empathise with those that are feeling very low and depressed.


I am also Cruse trained  and have completed the Cruse Awareness in Bereavement Care course  in 2008 . I am a cruse trained supervisor and hold a level 3 Award in Cruse Bereavement Care Supervision, 2011. I have five years of experience in volunteering for Cruse which is a national bereavement agency , working with the bereaved. 

I have worked as a trained nurse in a hospital and nursing homes and therefore have gained an insight into the types of health and family  issues that bring clients to counselling. This includes the care of the ill and terminally ill patient . I have liased with their  family pre and post bereavement and  during illness and so I feel I can empathise with the feelings that this can trigger.

I work for clients that approach me on an individual basis and I also work for agencies and employers that offer counselling for employees , I am also willing to accept GP referrals. I have been in private practice for 6 years.
