Lorraine favours an integrative approach supporting the individuality of her clients.
Lorraine offers a combination of Person Centred & Existential Therapy and utilises CBT techniques to help her clients reframe their self-view and their life experiences. Influenced by Jungian Psychology, she is mindful that we function through thoughts, feelings, sensations and intuition in our pursuit of wholeness and balance.
Lorraine endeavours to support her clients struggling with a range of issues such as self-identity, anxiety, depression, suicidal tendencies and general life challenges.
Prior to her work at counselling & psychotherapy, Lorraine worked as a Social Care Worker for nine years with children in the care system. This offered her extensive experience working with adolescents presenting with challenging behaviours, addictions and dysfunctional family systems and she has trained in Therapeutic Crisis Intervention with a view to modifying maladaptive behaviours & teaching new coping skills.
Lorraine also currently works with families in the community and offers psycho-education on child development, communication skills and positive parenting to help clients have a broader understanding of blocks and blind-spots with a view to improving and promoting healthy family dynamics.
