Lorna Gallacher Reg Member BACP, PG Dip Counselling adults & young people
Hello, my name is Lorna and thank you for looking at my profile. I have 23 years experience as an Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist. My background is in managing counselling agencies in the voluntary sector for the last 20 years. I also have 17 years experience as a counselling trainer and lecturer.
I have worked extensively with adults, children and young people. I work with a wide range of issues which include depression, anxiety, childhood abuse, trauma, self harm, suicidal thoughts, addictions, loss, bereavement, relationship difficulties, stress, domestic abuse, sexuality, feelings of low self esteem and confidence.
Counselling takes place in a private room in my home in Polmont where a therapeutic space is created, enabling clients to feel safe, accepted and understood; beginning their journey of recovery.
In addition, I offer a free 30 minute consultation to see if counselling is right for you. There are a limited number of reduced fee sessions, which can be negotiated.
