About me

Sometimes life becomes difficult and it can be helpful to have the support of someone other than family or friends to listen. Sometimes our problems become so overwhelming that we lose sight of where we are and what we need to get back on track. Sometimes we just can’t understand why we feel the way we do.

I believe that every one of us has the resources and abilities within ourselves to reach our full potential and by discovering and understanding our strengths, our concerns can become a lot clearer to us.

As a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist with years of life experience behind me, I can offer you a place where you can express yourself freely and deeply without fear of being judged, and where we can work together to make the changes that will help you move forward.

From my experience in a GP surgery working with people of all ages, differing ethnicity, cultures and sexual orientation, clients have come with issues such as: depression, anxiety, self esteem, lack of confidence, relationship difficulties with friends, family or at work, at school, loss and bereavement, alcohol or substance dependence or those who just want to feel some support.

Our first meeting online in the current Covid-19 pandemic is an opportunity for you to 'meet' me, either by telephone or video, to share your concerns, expectations, hopes and fears and of course to ask any questions.  It allows you to make a decision about whether or not you wish to return for ongoing counselling and allows me to find out about what you are bringing to counselling to ensure that I am well placed to support you.

We can work short term or longer term, whichever you feel is more helpful and the sessions are 50 minutes.

i also offer online counselling by email or instant messenger and the details are on my website www.nadinelanecounselling.co.uk

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.
