Loran Yates - Msc, PGDip, BSc(Hons), MBACP
My primary aim is to encourage and support you to make the positive changes you are seeking. I understand that life throws us curve balls which may be challenging, and it may be tricky to balance all of these on your own and so I provide you with an understanding, warm, non-judgemental and confidential space to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
I want to empower you to take back control of your life; whether you feel trapped, alone, stuck in the same cycles or perhaps there is something you just cannot talk about to anyone. Through therapy, I can help guide you on your journey to living your best life. Even though therapy may seem scary to start and a huge step for you it can help you overcome your pain from past events and relieve the symptoms of mental health issues. It can also help you to understand your own feelings and behaviours and give you strategies to utilise in the future.
I have a Masters Qualification in Psychotherapeutic Counselling, a Post Graduate Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling, as well as an undergraduate degree in Psychology and Counselling. I have worked within schools, youth club settings; with young people and adults with Special Education Needs and Disabilties; and private settings as a psychotherapist. Therefore, I have extensive experience working with individuals across a range of ages. As an integrative counselling psychotherapist, I use a range of approaches tailored to your needs to make therapy with myself a unique experience for you.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
