Lorraine Drennan MBACP (Accred)
I have extensive experience as an accredited Individual and Relationship Counsellor/Psychotherapist.
I offer you the opportunity to explore the emotional difficulties that you feel are creating problems in your life. I will enable you to understand your feelings and gain new awareness and insight into who you are. Together we can develop coping strategies and enable you to explore your options to lead a more satisfied life.
Relationships often break down due to a lack of understanding, commitment or even boredom. The result can lead to a lack of communication, resentment, arguments and mistrust and can affect the ability for you both to enjoy your relationship. I will work with you to explore your fears, hopes and frustrations and enable you to gain new awareness into your way of relating. We will explore the dynamics of your relationships with the prospects of change.
Counselling can help cope with many issues including stress, anxiety, manage addictions and increase confidence. It can address issues of resentment and anger. Counselling can enable you to make positive choices and better manage relationships which often leads to greater compassion and increased intimacy
I have an anti-discriminatory approach working with both cultural difference and diversity.
Why not give me a call and see if I can help you lead a more happier and fulfilling life.
