Everyone experiences a wide range of feelings in life. You may have difficulties at home, work, college or university, with relationships, health and other life struggles. You may be at a point in life where you may need more than a friendly ear, but the thoughts of seeing a counsellor can be overwhelming. My aim is to provide a professional, but warm, confidential, non-judgemental, caring, safe environment where you and I can explore your worries together.
As a relational counsellor/therapist, I place a lot of emphasis on our relationship, with us getting to know each other and working collaboratively to improve your wellbeing.
Alongside my private practice, I volunteer at a local charity for elderly, isolated and vulnerable people. Until September 2019, I was a volunteer counsellor at a counselling service in New Malden.
In addition to my Private Practice, I have a long history of working within the NHS as a Secretary and as a therapist. I also worked for a number of years as a volunteer therapist at a counselling organisation in New Malden.
As a psychotherapeutic counsellor/therapist, I draw from a range of psychological approaches, depending on your needs.
Hi I'm Lorrie (Lorraine)
I am a psychotherapeutic Integrative Relational Counsellor/therapist, meaning I use different theories and skills to help you gain a better insight into yourself and your life. Being a relational counsellor means that I aim to provide a confidential, warm, caring, trusting environment where you feel you can discuss whatever it is that brought you to counselling without fear of judgement. I believe our relationship is where healing and change can happen.
I hold a BA (Hons) Degree in Integrative Relational Counselling. I draw on a number of different theories and approaches to support you through difficult times. I believe the relationship we develop between us will be done collaboratively and this is where change begins and ultimately where healing happens.
