Welcome to Nadine Lane Counselling

Create Positive Change in Your Life

Counselling can help you navigate challenges

and create lasting change.

About Me

I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist with experience helping people navigate life's challenges. I understand how hard it can be to find the right counsellor and what an important step it is for you to take.

I specialise in supporting people who struggle with:

Anxiety and Depression: Are you feeling overwhelmed, stressed, or facing a difficult time in life? Together we can work to understand the root causes of these issues and develop effective coping mechanisms.

Relationships: Are you facing difficulties in your partnerships, friendships, or family? I can guide you towards healthier communication and stronger connections.

Workplace Issues: Feeling stressed and unhappy at work? Together we can work to help you manage the challenges, and improve communication to get you back on track.

And More: Life throws many challenges. I can also provide support with self-esteem issues, grief and loss, and other challenges that may be holding you back.

Change can be scary but therapy provides a safe space to explore your feelings

I offer a warm,safe and confidential approach where we can work together to help you make sense of and explore your thoughts to help you move forward.

I believe that everyone has the potential for growth and healing and sometimes life is difficult. Through therapy, you can develop a deeper understanding of yourself, build resilience, and change unhelpful patterns of behaviour.

Sometimes our problems are so overwhelming we lose sight of what we need to get back on track and sometimes we just can’t understand why we feel the way we do.

What is Counselling?

People come to counselling because they no longer want to feel the way they have been feeling - they want to make a change. It might be that you are facing a difficult time in your life, feeling overwhelmed by emotions so that you can't see a way forward or that you have recognised a pattern in your behaviour that you would like to change.

How can counselling help me?

Counselling can provide a safe place in which to talk in confidence about your concerns, worries and events in your life

Here's what you can expect when working with me:

A safe and confidential space to focus on the areas of difficulty with someone who will not judge or criticise you but will hear and support you throughout.

Compassionate support as you work through difficult emotions 

Practical tools and strategies to help you manage challenges and achieve positive change.

Flexible scheduling to fit your busy life (including evenings).

What about the sessions?

The amount of sessions you have depends on you. Some people need just a few sessions and others prefer a longer time to work through concerns.

Each session lasts 50 minutes.

Sessions are usually weekly, but this can vary and we can discuss as we go.

What about confidentiality?

Confidentiality is very important in the counselling relationship. Everything we discuss will be held in the strictest confidence unless there is reason for concern for either yourself or others. I work within the Ethical Framework of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, I adhere to the Data Protection Act principles and I hold an Enhanced DBS certificate.

What issues can counselling help with?

People come to me for help a wide range of issues. Here are a few of the more common difficulties that can be supported through counselling:


Relationship issues

low self-esteem


low mood

work related issues and redundancy

health related issues

emotional abuse

sexual abuse


Online Counselling

I am qualified in Online counselling through ACTO Association for Counselling and Therapy Online. I offer a confidential online service via Zoom, telephone or WhatsApp. I can also offer email via Hushmail secure email or instant messaging if you prefer. While traditional in-person counselling offers a valuable service, online counselling can provide unique benefits that might make it a great fit for you.

Here's how online counselling can empower you on your journey to emotional well-being:

Convenience and Flexibility: Schedule sessions at your own pace, from the comfort and privacy of your own home. This can be especially helpful for busy schedules, childcare needs, or those living in remote areas.

Reduced Stigma: Sometimes the act of going to a therapist's office can feel daunting. Online counselling allows you to address your concerns in a familiar and safe space, potentially making it easier to open up.

Accessibility: Online platforms can overcome limitations that might prevent you from attending in-person sessions, such as mobility issues or social anxiety.

But what about the quality of care?

Research shows that online counselling can be just as effective as traditional therapy for a wide range of concerns, including anxiety, depression, and relationship issues. I utilise various online methods to tailor our sessions to your needs, ensuring a supportive and productive environment.

If you're curious about how online counselling can support you, we can discuss this in an initial telephone conversation and I can answer any questions you may have.

Online counselling would not be suitable if you know that there is serious risk of severely harming yourself or others, feel actively suicidal or have a history of severe mental health condition. In this case I would advise you to contact either your local GP or Health Professional, the Samaritans 08457 909090 or a local crisis centre in your area.
