Lorraine Game MBACP
Are you feeling unheard and need someone to listen? Or maybe you are unhappy at work or feeling stressed or anxious.
Now and again our lives may become a little 'jumbled', 'a little out of sync'. During these times you may benefit from sharing your feelings with someone, like myself, who will listen without passing judgement and help you through the tough times.
The relationship between Counsellor and client is a very important one and by sharing your feelings with someone outside of the situation often feels more comfortable than with someone who is close to you.
I am a warm sensitive person and welcome you to share your thoughts and feelings with me within a safe and confidential environment.
I am a Registered member of The British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and have received Accreditation status, which demonstrates my commitment and experience in this field..
I hold a full professional indemnity Insurance.
I have also worked as a Bereavement volunteer for 'Cruse' for 5yrs
I can also offer Supervision for qualified counsellors to support their client work or for student counsellors looking for supervision whilst working through your placements..

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
£30.00 per 1hr per individuals
£45.00 per 1hr per Couple
£25.00 per 1hr for Counselling students
£45.00 per 1.5hr of Supervision
Payment by cash or BACS
Sometimes for whatever reason, you may need to cancel your appointment.
All i ask is that as much notice as possible could be given, a minimum of 24hrs if possible, to enable me to offer that time to someone else if needed.
My practice is warm and welcoming. Access is via the side and around the back of my home, which is also accessible for a wheelchair if necessary.
It is well lit and not overlooked, therefore confidentiality is guaranteed.
Parking is not a problem, there is lots of room outside my home, or if travelling by bus you will require the No 2 bus which stops almost opposite my street in Gunthorpe.
My website is readable, and hopefully reflects my warm character, which i would love you to visit.
I look forward to meeting you and sharing your journey with you.
