Lorraine Sheppard

Level 4 Diploma in therapeutic Counselling

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Diploma

I am a qualified, insured and BACP registered counsellor and follow the code of ethics provided by the BACP.

I have 15 years of experience working with young people and their families in a school setting. I have worked with clients coping with grief (including childhood bereavement), self-harm, depression, anxiety, exam anxiety, low self-esteem, negative body image, sexuality and gender identity, family issues (fostering, family break-ups), coping with new medical or physical difficulties and neurodivergent clients.

My aim is to provide a safe, warm, confidential place where you can talk about your difficulties free from any judgement. Another objective is to cultivate a trusting relationship which is key to therapy, allowing you to feel comfortable in opening up and talking about your troubles.

I work in an integrative way, which means that I use various styles of therapy to enable us, together, to tailor your sessions in a way that will best help you as an individual to live your best, healthiest and happiest life. Pulling on several theories, such as Psychodynamic therapy, Person Centred therapy and CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) to break down and change unhelpful patterns of behaviour.

We will work collaboratively to help you move forward and make meaningful change to your life or come to terms with a past experience and find coping techniques. All in all, we will walk this journey together!

As part of East Surrey Counselling group, I am available Fridays from 4.30pm and Sundays from 9.30am. Please contact me via Carol Belsey.
