Lorraine Collins

Mindfulness Practitioner in Central London

The first steps towards therapy can be daunting. My aim is to help you find new ways of understanding yourself, your current circumstances and how you interact with others that might be causing you concern. My approach to psychotherapy and counselling weaves together different modalities to meet the patients need at that time. The foundation of my training is psychodynamic, which is an exploration of conscious and unconscious forces that underlie human behaviours. During my training I have had the privilege of working alongside a diverse range of psychoanalysts whose expertise and experience has helped develop my own practice in a more holistic and integrative way. I work collaboratively with my patients in order to suit their need instead of trying to fit them to a particular model. My work is supervised regularly and I continue to keep abreast with new developments and research within the field of mental health and well-being which further informs my practice.

Approach to Therapy & How I Work

My approach is warm and relaxed with an aim to helping you find some of the answers that might be outside of your awareness due to the distress you may be going through at this time. Speaking to someone impartial and outside of your family and friend circle can help you to explore and unpack the very things that brought you to therapy in the first place. The first session is an opportunity to determine if therapy is the right option for you at this specific time in your life. If you have questions that you would like answered before setting an initial appointment, please feel free to contact me, and I would be glad to discuss those questions with you.

Much of the success of therapy directly hinges on the comfort of the therapeautic relationship between the client and therapist. Therefore, getting to know one another and determining the "fit" between us is important in the first few sessions. If, after the first couple sessions, you decide that you would be more comfortable meeting with a different therapist, you are under no obligation to continue seeing me. My desire for you is that you are in an environment of comfort and safety as you go through the counselling process.
