Hello, I'm Lorna, a counsellor and psychotherapist based in Newcastle, registered with both the UKCP and BACP.
I believe in the power of therapy to significantly improve our mental health, by raising our awareness, so we have choice, understand our own needs and are able to function in the world.
I have experience working with a range of issues such as anxiety, depression, work / education related stress, relationship issues, bereavement and low self esteem both privately, in the NHS within a GP practice and as a counsellor for the charity Mind.
Central to my way of working is a relationship of respect, warmth and curiosity. Providing a confidential, non judgemental safe space for individuals to explore issues and find what is right for them.
My approach is integrative and guided by the needs of the individual, grounded in the knowledge that our mind and body is fully connected. I am also a yoga teacher and where appropriate, offer individuals the tools of yoga, mindfulness and meditation to become grounded and improve self-care.
I work from the Jesmond Therapy Centre. The centre is a short walk from Newcastle city centre, has free on-street parking and two nearby Metro stations.
If you would like to book a session or if you have any questions about therapy or if you would like to arrange a free initial call, so you can decide whether therapy with me right for you, do contact me via…
