Online therapy and counselling

About me: Lorraine

Hello I'm a Psycho-therapeutic counsellor MBACP, MNCPS Acc.

Online counselling
My sessions use the ISOS Connect platform as it is the easiest transition for clients from email and Zoom.
The session is booked, the client recieves the confirmation call link, there's no software to download, the client just clicks the link and joins the call.  All calls are end-to-end encrypted and no data will ever be shared with third parties. A s
ession length is 50 minutes in counselling. 

Why access counselling?

People come to counselling for numerous reasons but often it is a hugely personal and individual process. It may be looking for support with a specific issue, difficult life events, relationship problems, upsetting or traumatic events or difficultly managing emotions such as grief, guilt, sadness, confusion, anger or low self-esteem.  It could be a lack of wellbeing, a sense of loneliness, depression and anxiety or other mental health problems or long term physical health problems. It can be linked to a lack of purpose or lack of fulfillment which can create low self-worth and not belonging.

Important stuff
It is essential to find the right person with whom you can start to trust, research (Lamberts Pie) highlights the success of any talking therapy often linked not to the type of therapy but to the therapist and how likely you are to trust the person you work with. This is about the therapeutic relationship, being able to take the risk of opening and sharing feelings and emotions when it feels right.  I work with people of all stages of counselling, from those who have never tried counselling before to those newly training or searching for a different type of therapy or counsellor. The most important thing is for it to feel right, to help you make the most of your counselling journey and see it as a positive experience.

The Person Centred Approach
My grounding is the Person centred approach based on providing an environment of warmth and safety, free from threat, judgement or criticism. In offer an honest compassionate space and aim to actively help you make sense of the world and how you came to be in this situation in the first place.  

My counselling experience covers working with adversity in life, distress, and the sudden outpouring of strong emotions. This is from Grief and Loss, unexpected life transitions and recently working with people diagnosed with and living with Cancer. I can work with adults, young people, with different agencies including EAP provision as an independent practitioner.

Why choose me?

My ability to communicate and listen even to the hard stuff. Its about the whole person, being in tune, having a holistic outlook, being creative and treating each client individually.


As the face of my business; I have an open heart and strong mindset, always humble when people make contact with me as know this needs bravey to take that first step. 

Thank you for choosing me 'in advance', I will do my best to provide you with the best service and take exquisite care of your needs.

Most of my availability is on Tuesdays or  Friday mornings but I am certain we can find a time that suits you. Online work means a little more flexibility without having to rent rooms, so please let me know your availability and preference plus leave your mobile number for ease of contacting please. .

Please note I accept self-referrals only, none from family members or another person. 

With busy counselling schedules and growing experience, I have decided to no longer offer free introductionary calls or trial sessions, instead head straight into paid counselling sessions.
This feels what my clients need, especially if they are committed and want to start their counselling. By doing this it gives you the opportunity to see how talking with me felt and if you feelwe can work together.

Initial sessions are charged at full rate, however there is no obligation to take up counselling thereafter; if you feel what I offer is not right for you. All that is needed is a completed intake form before sessions start and payment on the day.

Statement concerning the coronavirus pandemic

My practice is all about offering support and helping hand in uncertain and challenging times.

I call it the together-alone paradox which the Covid pandemic brings and aims to leave my clients feeling less alone and isolated with their situation.

I would highly recommend

Lorraine’s sessions were a life line for me following the bereavement of my Dad. Her ability to listen and guide through an extremely tough period of time has enabled me to begin to heal on this journey. Extremely professional, but with a warmth energy meant I gained trust quickly. I would highly recommend.
