Lorraine Landau MSc MBACP (Accred) UKRC
I am an individual and couples therapist with an added expertise in psychosexual therapy. I have many years’ experience in numerous facets of individual and relationship therapy with people of varied sexual orientation and cultural backgrounds. I work with anxiety, depression, loss of confidence as well as all aspects of relationship difficulties.
No two people respond the same way to a problem and my work is tailored to the needs of my clients, either short term to address a specific issue, alleviate anxiety, the fallout from affairs, the distress of sexual problems, or longer-term to make sense of deep-rooted and long standing concerns for individuals and couples.
My aim is to help clients to understand the effect of early family and childhood experience and its influence on what is happening now. Change comes with understanding; understanding brings freedom and clarity and allows clients to make informed choices about their present and future.
I adhere to the BACP code of ethics and undertake regular supervision.

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.
