About me and my therapy practice
I offer support and a helping hand in such challenging times and believe in the ability to overcome challenges. Whatever your concern, if it feels daunting or impossible at the moment then counselling may be an avenue to explore? I'm Lorraine at Candle mouse counselling. I have lots of transferable skills from my NHS work and experience working across different age groups. I work with Young People, Adults and Elders focusing on Anxiety, Depression and Loss; Bereavement and Baby loss. I will listen to you without judgement, help you explore your thoughts and emotions. I won't tell you what you should think but will help you to find your own solutions; whether its for making effective change or for learning how to cope.
How can counselling help? You don't need to be on the verge of crisis before having therapy. You might be feeling dissatisfied with life in general or seeking balance in life. Some people feel incredibly isolated and have no-one to talk to, sometimes even those with the most supportive friends and family can find it difficult to explain 'why' they feel anxious or depressed. Therapy can be a great help if you are feeling painful emotions or facing difficult decisions, if you want to improve or change your relationships, or if you'd like to develop a better understanding of yourself and others. Perhaps something is unsettling you from the past such as Bereavement, redundancy, divorce, or Health scare. There may be something in the past that's not been dealt with and is now interfering with daily life or you may want help to cope with issues such as stress, anxiety or personal problem solving. What next? Either ring me directly or send me an email and I promise to get back to you within 48 hours. Please provide you mobile telephone number for quicker contact.

My first session
I tend to work with unlimited (open) sessions, time-limited work and planned reviews to meet your individual needs.
This depends on your original enquiry and what you want to achieve from counselling. During our exploratory conversation we can talk about expectations, exactly what you want to achieve from therapy and agree together how long this might take.
Intake forms need to be completed along with payment before the first counselling session goes ahead.
