Lorraine has been amazing this past year. She's kind, patient, intuitive and really client led. We built a relationship really quickly and her very human approach is exactly what I needed and continue with as a result. As someone who wasn't sure about counselling, this has been such a positive experience for me!

Lorraine and I clicked very quickly and her conversation and tone was comforting and understanding.
She's a great communicator and very flexible.
I would highly recommend her as a better help therapist and as a person.
Very professional but approachable.

Lorraine has been my guide through my first experience of therapy. I didnt know what to expect, but I feel very lucky to have had her professional and caring presence through some difficult times. The way she translates a solid theoretical understanding into a personal approach has worked wonders for me. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a warm, caring therapist who you can trust to listen to you and offer judgement-free advice.

Lorraine is a genuinely kind and caring person, who is easy to talk to. She doesn't judge you, no matter what you say, which creates a safe place to open up about feelings that you can't share anywhere else. I had a short course of counselling with Lorraine to help me to unlock a stuck feeling that I had been experiencing for many years. It was associated with lots of shame and guilt. I would highly recommend Lorraine and I will go back to her if new issues come up for me.

Lorraine has been a huge help for me navigating a really challenging time in my life. I always feel better after our sessions, like a weight has been lifted. She validates my feelings and experience and makes me see things in a different light. I feel heard and seen in our sessions. Therapy with her has been enlightening through this dark time.

I have found Lorraine to be helpful, attentive, a great listener and also insightful. My brief time with her has helped me get through some immediate problems and look at some long term solutions.
