Professional considerations

Loraine’s professional practice is informed by the BACP’s Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions (link) which sets out guidance, recommendations and requirements for such things as confidentiality, supervision, insurance, data protection, professional conduct and complaints.

“My experience in the field of counselling and psychotherapy ranges from being a student, a client, a tutor, a practitioner and a supervisor – so I have a 360-degree perspective! I continue to broaden and deepen my professional development with a range of courses, workshops and CPD activities.”
