Lorraine Lee, FDA
With over 30 years of experience of communicating with clients of varying ages, including 10 years of working in the education sector. I am able to provide an approach to therapy that explores the often challenging life experiences that you may face.
Using a psychodynamic counselling approach, I can explore possible links between your past and how this may have a direct impact on your behaviour and feelings in the present day.
Being an integrative counsellor, this means I use a combination of therapy techniques to help you explore different situations. Which means your therapy is tailored to suit you. I pride myself on building and painting a supportive and trusting client-counsellor relationship and I believe this is crucial in ensuring that therapy is centered around you.
