Thank you so much for the support you have provided ***** with her anxiety in the 1:1 session.

***** was reluctant to begin at first but once we had met for the first time, she was so excited to come again and learn all the ways in which she could manage her anxiety. ***** has loved the sessions; I can see that they have built her confidence and improved her self-esteem.

I couldn’t be more grateful to you, as I felt helpless trying to help her, she is happier and more confident and able to enjoy things that she once couldn’t using all the strategies you have provided.

It’s also so reassuring knowing you are always here if she ever needs any more support.

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.
