Dr Alister Baird
2 May 2023
As an accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and registered Counsellor, Lorraine has undergone extensive training and education in the field of mental health. She holds a master's degree in Counselling and a post-graduate diploma in Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy from the University of Oxford, which has equipped her with a strong theoretical foundation and practical skills to support individuals struggling with a wide range of mental health issues.
Lorraine's professional affiliations include membership in both the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy (BABCP) and the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). These memberships serve as evidence of her commitment to adhering to the highest ethical standards and staying up-to-date with the latest research and best practices in the field of mental health.
One of Lorraine's unique strengths is her proficiency in complex presentations using schema-focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). This approach involves exploring people's inner world constructs, or "schemas," which refer to deeply ingrained patterns of thought, emotion, and behaviour that can have a profound impact on an individual's overall mental health and wellbeing. By identifying and addressing these schemas, Lorraine aims to help her clients develop more adaptive coping strategies and build a more helpful approach to living.
At Bloomfield Health, we highly recommend Lorraine's services to individuals seeking mental health support. Her extensive experience, training, and skills make her an ideal choice for those looking to improve their sense of wellbeing and build more effective coping strategies for living. We believe that Lorraine's collaborative, empathetic, and evidence-based approach will be highly beneficial to our clients and help them achieve their treatment goals.
