Lorraine Collins, Counsellor, Psychotherapist & CBT (MSc, BSc) MBACP

About me

I understand that taking the first step towards seeking help can be daunting.  My private practice is based 5 minutes walk from Bond Street tube, W1. I offer a safe, warm, and confidential space, where you'll be free to tell me your concerns without fear of being judged or criticised.

Much of the success of therapy directly hinges on the comfort of the therapeautic relationship between the client and counsellor. Therefore, getting to know one another and determining the fit between us is important in the first few sessions. If, after the first couple sessions, you decide that you would be more comfortable meeting with a different therapist, you are under no obligation to continue seeing me. My desire for you is that you are in an environment of comfort and safety as you go through the counselling process. My aim is to help you transform your current difficulties in a way that you are able to make sense of them and therefore make the appropriate changes needed.

The first session is a useful time to be able to ask any questions you have concerning how counselling works or questions for me specifically as a counsellor. It is an opportunity to determine if counselling is the right option for you at this specific time in your life. If you have questions that you would like answered before setting an initial appointment, please feel free to contact me, and I would be glad to discuss those questions with you.

Further information

Like more and more people I too have benefited from Counselling and Psychotherapy at challenging times of my life which I feel has enabled me to empathise and gain a deeper understanding of what taking the first steps towards therapy can be like. I am a member of BACP (British Association of Psychotherapy and Counselling) and work within their ethical codes of conduct. I have over 15 years' experience working in the field of addiction and emotional conflict and am currently working within the NHS as well as my own private practice in Central London.

Past work has involved The Blenheim Project, West London Centre for Counselling and Brentfield Medical Centre. Alongside my private practice I also work for an NHS Adult Psychotherapy Unit in West London.
