I was recommended Lorraine by numerous people after trying to find the right help for my 13 year old son. He had been struggling with anxiety and breathing problems in the 3rd lockdown, which got a lot worse when he had to go back to school in March of this year.
He took some convincing to see someone after not connecting with another therapist, but within 10 minutes of sitting with Lorraine she had him engaged. She began by talking to him about how brains work in such a simple yet brilliant way that we still use this analogy most days when he feels his worries escalating.
And after getting to know what in particular fed his anxiety she made the sessions very personal to him and gave him invaluable tools to help him through difficult days, of which there were many!
After 4 sessions he began noticing his breathing was more regulated, he was catastrophising less and was less emotional. He's much more settled now and on worrisome days, which he knows are normal, he has a wonderful workbook to dip into and remind him he has the tools to cope. Thank you Lorraine, we are so very grateful for your help.
