Lorraine (Lorrie) Berry
Everyone experiences a wide range of feelings in life. You may have difficulties at home, work, college or university, with relationships, health and other life struggles. You may be at a point in life where you may need more than a friendly ear, but the thoughts of seeing a counsellor can be overwhelming. My aim is to provide a professional, but warm, confidential, non-judgemental, caring, safe environment where you and I can explore your worries together.
As a relational counsellor, I place a lot of emphasis on our relationship, with us getting to know each other and working collaboratively to improve your wellbeing.
Alongside my private practice, I am a volunteer at a local charity for elderly, isolated and vulnerable people.
As a psychotherapeutic counsellor, I draw from a range of psychological approaches, depending on your needs.
I can work with you short-term or long-term, whatever you decide.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a BA (Hons) Degree in Integrative Relational Counselling.
I am a qualified EFT Practitioner.
My work includes a private practice in Hampton Hill offering therapy for individuals (16 years and over). As part of my training, I worked within the NHS counselling clients with a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, bereavement, abuse, trauma, shame, addiction, isolation and relationship problems. I currently work as a volunteer counsellor for a counselling service in New Malden and also volunteer for a local charity.
My work is regularly supervised by an accredited supervisor. I abide by the BACP code of ethics.
I am committed to ongoing professional training as per the BACP guidelines and regularly attend workshops for continued professional development.
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
