I’m Lorraine, a Psycho-therapeutic counsellor working online across the UK and Ireland, plus to locals in Cornwall mostly in the Truro area. My private practice offers ‘blended counselling’ to support my clients and their needs. I work online during the week and mostly face-to-face options most Tuesday and Fridays but am certain we can find a convenient time to meet and work together wherever you are based.

Currently I am a supervisor in training (Level 7) planning to extend private practice to include supervision to counsellors both individually and within a group setting plus Consultation supervision to Professionals who support people as part of their roles. Some liken it to a pressure release valve; a time to be honest, talk freely, reflect and process. Having a neutral person can help prevent burn out and improve work/life balance to stop work stresses bleeding into the rest of our lives.

This applies to those in Primary, secondary, further and higher education staff, teachers, lecturers, support staff. Designated safeguarding leads, head teachers, senior leadership teams, Healthcare staff, GP’s, Nurses. Youth workers, social workers, carers, support workers and this list continues.

Whether you are looking for Counselling or supervision, searching for the right counsellor can feel an arduous task learning about different types of counsellors, their different modalities and what they all mean. My grounding is Person centred meaning a warmth and sincerity from the start, a lack of judgement and a holistic way of working. My preference is not to put people into boxes and see the wider picture and choose to Integrate approaches as when needed, which is especially helpful within supervision models.

I know there are many counsellors out there who say this and that but I will do my best to put you at ease, answer questions and connect with you. I might be the right counsellor to work with you, if not – more than happy to signpost you or make a recommendation.

With collaborative effort, trust and an explorative nature we can talk about what is bothering you and attempt to find meaning and a way forward.

I use the ISOS Connect platform which allows potential clients to book appointments directly into my Calendar or you can phone me on 07928 344 770 leave a message and when free I will ring you back, or email me on lorrainegolding45@gmail.com and tell me a little about yourself and what you are looking for from Counselling/supervision.

Work With Me

I have different facets. I’m a counsellor, audiologist and trained sound practitioner who brings these different elements into the counselling room. This is always patient-centred and delivered with warmth and sincerity right from the start. My ‘uniqueness’ sets me apart from others and I feel it allows me to work across different age groups and see people from all ‘walks of life’.

I have rich experience with Anxiety and Depression, Bereavement and Loss. Recently including baby loss and clients living with cancer. These issues are not just limited to the above but often around transitions in life that leave us reeling, with certain feelings that are hard to talk about with family or friends. I work clinically but hold a holistic view to see the whole person as an incredibly special individual. I offer warm, safe environment, free from threat, judgement or criticism. This is fully embracing what in counselling terms we call the Core conditions.

This is an honest compassionate space where you can make sense of the world and where you fit. My work is non-directive, giving the client choice I where they go in the counselling hour. If we want direction then we can set goals, work creatively but my practice is about YOU, upholding respect and autonomy in all I do. This is essential if you are to feel comfortable in the therapeutic relationship and find the right counsellor to meet your needs. Feel free to email and ask any questions and I will do my best to answer them.

Please note I have a variety of fees reflecting different working times and days along with a few reduced slots as sliding scales for individual who may struggle to meet the full fee. This needs to be discussed on first inquiry as very much depends on my availability before contracting and agreeing to work together. Due to busy counselling days means rarely do I offer free introductory calls or trial sessions but tend to go straight into paid sessions with completed intake forms forming part of my assessment process (see pages on the website giving example of my intake questions and full fees).
