I would highly recommend Lorna. After suffering from anxiety most of my life. She helped give me the tools to survive and get through one of the worst times in my life. I cannot thank her enough.

Lorna was able to easily put you at ease and create the right professional environment but also with a human touch to encourage open discussion and support which was much valued and appreciated

Working with Lorna was overwhelmingly helpful at a time of grave difficulty and personal challenges. She was a patient and observant listener and extremely sagacious and discreet with advice.
Strongly recommended for anyone needing encouragement and support.

Lorna helped me tremendously to overcome some personal difficulties. She was a patient and non-judgemental listener who I found it very easy to open up to. She gave me space to talk while also offering me some really useful tools and practical ideas for improving my mental health and my life in general. I always felt lighter after leaving the sessions and my mental health and outlook has improved significantly since starting the sessions with her. I would recommend her to anyone! More...

I was very nervous about going to my first session as I'd never done it before. Lorna made me feel calm once I was there, and I felt everything I talked about was important to her - nothing I said seemed silly, even if it did in my own head.

I couldn't recommend Lorna enough.

Lorna is one of the most caring, empathetic and understanding standing people I’ve ever met. She is very knowledgeable, skilled, patient and creative in how she approaches difficult topics and experiences. I was nervous when I first went for counselling, but Lorna was warm and allowed me to speak about things at a pace that was comfortable. I’m so thankful for the insight Lorna provided as well as her compassion and understanding during some very difficult times. Thank you for making a difference, Lorna. More...

A new experience for me talking about my problems an trying to work thru them. Finding it easier than I thought I would thanks to Lorna listening and helping me thru it. Thought I would struggle to talk for the hour turns out it’s the quickest hour of my day. A non judgemental environment to get your thoughts an feelings out. Would highly recommend. More...

Lorna was brilliant to work with.
She immediately made me feel comfortable enough to talk with her openly, and established what I needed from the sessions. She also worked at my pace and was understanding and friendly whilst still being professional.

I really appreciated the flexibility with her schedule as well as I was a busy student!

I can honestly say she has helped me in ways I would never have anticipated. I'd recommend her to anyone.

Lorna is an excellent counsellor with a friendly and professional approach. From the first session, I felt at ease and was able to discuss, in confidence, topics which I struggled with for a long time. The sessions helped me adopt new ways of thinking to move forward and manage my emotions better. Lorna has a genuine interest in helping clients and treats you as an individual. More...

Lorna is lovely. She is so understanding and really listens to what you have got to say. She makes you realise that your thought processes are valid but how they could be changed in order to make your life easier by being less anxious/angry etc. She taught me to look at the positive side of things when before I instantly always looked at the worst possible outcome. She is genuinely a really nice person and feel we got along great. If I ever have any other things I need help with I will be back as her unbiased, logical ways of looking at things really help me to see sense. It really does just help to talk. More...

Lorna is an absolutely excellent counsellor. She listens & processes things in a very sympathetic way & her attention to detail is something which I find so impressive. The time I have spent with Lorna has been invaluable & she asks very pertinent & relevant questions. She makes you feel so relaxed but maintains the highest standards of professionalism. I am so glad that I found her & am so grateful for all of her help. Lorna is so so good at what she does!

Q&A

I feel extremely privileged to accompany my clients on their journeys of self discovery and to facilitate their progress towards fulfillment in their lives. Furthermore, I gain a great sense of pride in my clients in what they achieve through counselling. Also, watching the process as they grow in confidence and blossom in their lives where they can finally put their pain in the past. I also enjoy the challenge at each client brings and gaining a wide understanding of the depth of who they are as a person and what is important to each individual.

Having graduated I was initially employed in a organisations but I felt frustrated by the bureaucracy as clients would only be be offered a limited amount of sessions leaving clients feeling rushed and perhaps this impacted on the amount depth they could achieve. Furthermore, organisations may only offer counselling to deal with a particular issues of their life when in facts many issues are often intertwined. So it is not surprising it did not meet the clients individual needs ! As counsellor I feel it is imperative to address the bigger picture . Combined with these huge obstacles they often endured long waiting lists and major limitations in flexibility. Having endured much bureaucracy I decided I wanted to offer my clients the best possible care and very much strived to meet their individual needs. So, I started my own counselling company in order to achieve this and feel very fortunate in being able to work this way.

Since starting university and despite enduring the challenges of bureaucracy which I feel was a learning curve which greatly increased my own self awareness as to who I was as a counsellor and is what is important as to what I can want to offer counsellor. ! Since then I have never looked back and am highly committed to my role as a counsellor. Furthermore, I feel another factor in making a positive change to my clients well being is having a strong believe that every client has the ability to achieve to grow as a person and achieve happiness regardless of the challenges of their psychological disturbances. Alongside this, I very much give my self as a person without facade where empathy, genuineness and understanding are at the very at the heart of my practice. I feel another essential factor in my practice is to be informed in research, theory and new approaches and therefore defecate much time and energy into reading and training to offer the best possible service.
