I am a fully qualified psychotherapist/counsellor with over 15 years of experience.
As an integrative counsellor I draw from various theoretical approaches which enables me to adapt the therapy to fit each individual and their specific needs.
With many years of counselling experience whilst working in an agency setting supporting mental health. I have a lot of experience working with trauma, including childhood trauma, self harm, addiction, sex and more. Therefore, I am able to support people who have many different presenting issues.
Counselling can help you to work through thoughts, feelings and/or behaviours that concern you.
I am non judgemental, open and accepting of you as a person regardless of what brings you to therapy, and will work with you to help you to improve your life.
I look forward to hearing from you and phone or video meeting with you to support you on your recovery journey.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Barbara Lorusso. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Barbara has been extremely helpful during the last few months. She has been very attentive about listening to my issues and finding effective methods to solve my problems from the feedback I give. From the first day she was able to quell my doubts and anxieties about online therapy.

Outside of the live sessions, Barbara always communicated via text if I ever had problems or questions and I never questioned her commitment and ability to help me.

I completed 3 sessions so far with Barbara, and while i understand this is a long term plan to improve as a person mentally - all the signs at the moment lead to me firmly believing i am on the right track thanks to Barbara. The way the calls are structured, how she always recalls things i said over past calls and keeps me engaged for the full session. Her honest opinion is always spot on and i am thankful to have matched with her as a therapist here.

Barbara is a brilliant therapist, from the first session she made me feel completely at ease, gave me the opportunity to be completely open with her, listened and really understood me. She offered great support and where necessary advice and allowed me to see things from different perspectives. I would not hesitate in recommending Barbara.
