I take an integrative approach using a range of tools, techniques and therapies. I am empathic and non-judgemental but also results-oriented as I recognise that you want to make a real and lasting change. Our aims are that you will 'become your own therapist', that you will have more control over your thinking style, emotions and behaviours, deeper self-awareness and a more self-compassionate attitude. With that comes greater empowerment.
I am experienced in a wide range of areas including bullying; depression; low self-esteem; low confidence; bereavement; relationship issues; family estrangement; scapegoating; post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD); anxiety including panic attacks; stress; emotional and physical abuse; chronic anger; addictions and negative habits and compulsive behaviours such as over-spending, over-eating etc.
I offer face-to-face or skype counselling as people communicate as much through their body language as they do verbally.
I am fully CRB checked and insured and a registered member of the BACP. I am on a register that has been accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
I worked as a volunteer counsellor for Basildon Mind for three years.

Highly recommended. Lorna was excellent for me. Warm yet challenging and extremely informative providing plenty of material to access outside of sessions i.e worksheets, books and online videos. Lorna's ability and knowledge regarding narcissistic mothering together with the inner child work we did has equipped me to become stronger and more self-reliant. The process has been invaluable to me.
