Lorraine Gallagher Dip.Couns (MBACP)
Hello and welcome.
I know that coming to counselling can sometimes feel quite daunting. I can offer you the time and space to help you process difficult feelings ,thought's and experiences in a safe and calm environment. I am passionate about providing a place that is confidential and safe, in a non judgemental way.
I am a qualified integrative counsellor. (Integrative means I use different approaches depending on what the client needs).
I am a member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists).
I can offer you the time and space to reflect on difficult feelings. I offer empathy and congruence.
How Can Counselling Work for You?
My approach is concerned with helping you gain a deeper understanding of your feelings, experiences and behaviour. For example past experiences/relationships effecting your present relationships, conscious and unconscious thoughts.
My priority is creating a warm, respectful, secure, confidential relationship so you can feel safe enough to explore whatever may be troubling you.
