Hi I'm Lorraine.  

Welcome to Headspace Counselling.

  • I'm an experienced counsellor accredited with the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). 

  • I have been counselling for 15 years and have extensive experience working with adults, children, young people and relationships (couples/families/groups etc.)  

  • My experience includes counselling, supervising counsellors and training in different settings - private practice, schools and universities, councils, organisations and within national and local charities. 

  • I work with many issues including anxiety, low mood and depression, loss and grief, relationship difficulties, self harm, bullying, family issues, work and school issues...

Adults Relationships

  • Adults
  • Children and Young People 5-18yrs
  • Students at college or university
  • Couples/relationships
  • Families and Groups

  • There are times in life when things happen and this can leave us with feelings that are difficult to cope with. We may feel confused, uncertain, anxious, sometimes alone and sad. We may not know why we feel the way we do, what to do about it or who we can talk to. 

  • Counselling can provide a space outside of family and friendships to explore what may be going on for us, and to look at ways of finding greater understanding of our feelings, emotions and experiences. 

  • I believe we are all unique and there is no right way to look at an issue. I offer talking therapy and also work creatively within sessions (as appropriate) to help you as a client find your way.

  • I am passionate about my counselling work and about developing facilitative relationships to explore what may be the right choices for you in your life.


  • Individual sessions    £50
  • Couples/groups       £60-75

about counselling...

Headspace Counselling


Children & Young People

Children & Young People

  • Our sessions can be a place to talk about and work through issues that are causing you concern; perhaps feeling low, anxious, unhappy or confused. This can be related to work or home life, family or relationship issues or changes in our life etc. 

  • Sometimes it's difficult to know why we feel the way we do, and that's something we look at together.

  • I have worked with many issues with adults. If you would like to check out if I am someone you would like to talk to, get in touch by email, phone or text.

Children & Young People

Children & Young People

Children & Young People

  • Young people can feel stresses and pressures from many directions: friendships, school, exams, fitting in and feeling different, family life and transitions, bullying etc.

  • As a young person it can be difficult to talk about issues. These experiences can be painful and we can feel we should know what to do. 

  • I've helped many young people during my work as a counsellor in primary and secondary schools, and in my private practice. 

  • If you are a parent/carer or young person and would like further information about how I can help just get in touch. 


Couples Counselling
Headspace Counselling


Children & Young People


  • Relationship counselling can be a space to explore emotional connections, difficulties and changes in relationships. Therapy sessions can be a facilitative space to discuss issues and to find ways to better understand each other and your relationships.    

  • Sometimes it feels relationships are not working well or as they used to, or there may be specific issues that have changed the relationship between you - for example trust being broken or betrayals. This can be within marriage, partnerships, family relationships or friendships. 


A bit about my supervision practice...

My decision to become a supervisor can be attributed to my experiences of being a supervisee. Over the past 15 years I have developed both personally and professionally within these relationships. Supervision has challenged, held and nurtured my practice and I have grown through these experiences. 

I continue to learn from each encounter as a counsellor, supervisor and trainer and these experiences continue to shape my practice. I work with and offer creative exploration in both counselling and supervision.

What I endeavour to offer within the supervisory relationship is a place to explore practice. It's a space of learning, understanding and insight, personal and professional growth, challenge, working through dilemmas and an acknowledgement and celebration of practice.  

If you would like to find out more about how we could work together please get in touch.

Supervision for:

  • Qualified Counsellors/psychotherapists
