Lorna is an experienced Counsellor who works with individuals
I believe in the power of therapy to enable us to reduce depression and anxiety, increase self-awareness, improve relationships and ultimately create positive change and wellness in our lives.
I am an experienced therapist who also works for MIND (mind.uk.org) and have many years experience working in the NHS and private practice. I am an integrative, relational psychotherapist who incorporates cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and creativity into my practice. The field of mind body connection is also of great interest to me.
I provide confidential, safe and non-judgemental counselling and psychotherapy. You will be met with warmth, respect and an understanding that you are free to speak about whatever is on your mind.
I also have a history in yoga training and use my knowledge of the body in my therapy work. The mind / body connection is very important in my practice.
I offer Yoga classes for women from Jesmond Therapy Centre on a one to one or small group basis. My aim in these classes is to give beginners the skills and confidence to join other yoga groups.
I can also provide tailor made yoga sessions to your specific needs to help you deal with back pain, depression, anxiety and mindfulness.
