Lorna Cole-Partridge (MBACP, PGDip)
If you’re going through a tough time, you might be looking for someone to talk to that you can really open up to, who you can relate to and trust. Whether this is your first experience of therapy or you're looking for new therapist, we can have an initial chat on the phone which will give you a chance to ask any questions you have about me, how I work and about the therapy process.
I'm available in East London, North London, Hackney and Central London locations.
If you feel like you have things you'd like to get off your chest and can’t go to anyone you know with it, I’m here to be an understanding and listening ear. I can help you find ways to pursue the change and improvement you’re looking for in your life.
The way I work is all about what suits your needs and your personality, with assured confidentiality. I work in a comfortable and relaxed private space so you can be most at ease. If you haven't had counselling before, I'd really like the chance to show you why I think talking therapies can work for everyone.
People have come to me to deal with:
- The stresses and strains of everyday life.
- Difficulty at home.
- Struggling with relationships.
- Having a tough time at work.
- Dealing with the sadness of losing a loved one.
- Trying to get a grip on addictions.
- Coming to terms with things that have happened in the past.
- Not feeling 100% and not really sure why.
Whether you're looking for longer term support, want to achieve short term goals or are after one session to try it out, I’m here to help you help yourself be your best and happiest you.
I can work with you on with issues related to:

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.
