Lorraine Bacon
Psychosexual & Relationship Therapist Integrative Therapist
Consultant Placeholder 360X246

Lorraine Bacon is an experienced integrative therapist, with a wealth of knowledge and experience of addiction. She is specialized in Psychosexual & Relationship Therapy and the basic principle of her approach, is to create an opportunity to build a safe 'Therapeutic Relationship' with a growing willingness, trust and respect to explore issues/emotions which may be a result of past or present experiences/trauma.

Lorraine can offer a non-judgmental, confidential and honest 'safe space' to explore and unravel difficulties/challenges which may well be affecting a persons daily life, relationships, work, general health, intimacy (sexual/non sexual) and sexual experiences. She will facilitate your journey of exploration of your self & your perception of the world, whether as an individual or couple of a different or same sex relationship. Lorraine works with various issues of communication breakdown, disconnection, betrayal, infidelity, libido loss, sexual difficulties, sexual addiction, infertility, separation, divorce, menopause, mental health and sexual dysfunctions.

Lorraine uses skills from an integrative model to create a unique structure for the individual or couple, with a core foundation of congruence, non judgment and empathy with respect of the human ability to heal its self given the appropriate conditions. She believes through new understandings grows an awareness and clarity of the difficulties/feelings being experienced, through this awareness comes understanding of the choices, resulting in making positive changes which meet your needs.

Lorraine believes that irrational thoughts & feelings make sense when we understand where they are coming from, what the triggers are and how to implement a plan to bring about transformation for the individual and their relationships, resulting in having a healthy, respectful, compromising relationship. Lorraine works by educating why we chose the partners we do, introduce skills and tools to embrace non abusive conflict, to see it as an opportunity to deepen the connection within the relationship and to grow as an individual and as a couple.
