Lorna Harrison - Counsellor MBACP
- Hi I'm Lorna, Thank you for looking at my profile. I am a person- centred counsellor based in Thornton- Cleveleys and I also have access to a therapy room in the Blackpool /Poulton area. I have recently been working with clients who are suffering from Anxiety, Depression, Feeling Sad, Bereavement, Relationship, Covid 19 issues and Family issues however I can work with a range of presenting issues clients may have.
Person-centred counselling is a non directive form of therapy. I offer a safe, non-judgemental, trustworthy, confidential environment for the client to explore the issues that are troubling them in every day life. I am also registered with the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and I abide by their Ethical Framework.
I believe that being a counsellor is not just about listening to a client, but it is about being alongside the client, feeling their emotions, offering acceptance and creating a safe therapeutic relationship where a person feels safe and heard. Through personal experience I understand how daunting and scary Counselling may seem, however the positive changes it had in my life lead me to become a counsellor with the aim to help make a difference to my client's lives.
I understand that everyone has busy lives, so I offer appointments in the afternoon, evening and weekends to fit around work and family commitments. If you have any other queries feel free to email or ring me on the information provided.

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.
