About me

Hi, I'm Lorraine, I offer individual, couple & family counselling.

I work with children from the age of 10.

I offer clients immediate help with anxiety and depression.  Tools to help you reduce, alleviate and get back in focus.  I help men with anger issues.

Having trained as a Person-Centred Counsellor, I have knowledge and experience in different theoretical models and approaches through continuing professional development (CPD), enabling me to work with your individual needs and issues that are unique to you. Working therapeutically with a humanistic approach ensures I work in a process devoid of any religious influences or pre-disposed beliefs.

I also work in a creative way introducing choice to my clients, if they wish to work creatively or if they prefer talking therapy. So please contact me if you have any queries and I will be happy to help. If I am unable to answer your phone call, please leave a message and I will contact you back as soon as possible.

Member organisations


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.
