Lorraine Foster BA (Hons) DipHE MBACP (Accred) Supervisor (Integrative)
As an accredited counsellor I have achieved and demonstrated a substantial level of training and experience that has been verified by The British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP)
I work within various settings as a humanistic counsellor including Charitable Organisations, Educational establishments as well as private practice.
In my private practice I operate from a detached, easy accessible dedicated therapy room which offers a friendly yet professional environment I endeavour to offer a safe environment in which to explore issues that may be troubling you with my philosophy being strongly based on the principle of providing a non-judgemental, accepting, therapeutic space in which to freely address your chosen issues, which may include bereavement, depression, anxiety and addiction, as well as many others.
I encourage empowerment and explore autonomy as self-belief enhances strength within and promotes personal growth bringing emotional balance.
Every individual is unique therefore clients work at their own pace.
I am a qualified supervisor and offer my services supervising qualified and trained counsellors, individually or group sessions.
I can negotiate a reduced fee for trainee counsellors.
