Are there fears, doubts or anxieties which prevent you from being who or what you want to be?
Have you experienced a traumatic event and do you feel your life is still affected by it?
Do you want to feel empowered to effectively manage everyday struggles?
Do you want to engage fully in what you are doing and appreciate each moment of your life?
If you are reading this then there is a good chance that you want to make a life change or improvement. My name is Lorraine Romney and I provide anxiety help and trauma therapy in Telford and in Sutton Coldfield.
I can help you overcome anxiety, including anxiety based disorders, and remove negative feelings and emotions connected to a previously experienced trauma that may still be affecting your life.
I will help you better understand your thoughts and feelings and change the relationship you have with them so they no longer have a negative impact on your life.
Whether it is trauma therapy or anxiety help, our work together will enable you to develop psychological skills that will empower you to take back control of your life and move towards a more calm, full and meaningful life.

Affinity and Beyond Therapy
I offer a fully supportive service to my clients which includes additional support outside the therapy session. I understand how difficult it can be for you to take that first step in asking for help and want you to feel you are not alone with your difficulty.
My passion and commitment is to enable you to feel better and improve your life, and in my experience the most powerful way of doing so is to offer a support package that is guided by processes. If you want to experience a potentially powerful process that can be profoundly transformational, and you want continual support throughout the process, then I'd love to invite you to give me a call to book a free 30 minute consultation when you can decide if you feel I am the right person to help you.
I can help you develop the skills that will enable you to deal with:
Previous traumatic events
Anxieties and related anxiety disorders
I can also help you access the skills and motivation required to achieve goals such as:
Gaining focus and direction
..... and more
Types of Therapy Offered
Following an initial complimentary consultation, I provide solution focused personalised sessions that may combine a variety of therapeutic approaches including:
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
Psycho Sensory Therapy
I booked 5 sessions to get some help with managing anxiety. I was initially a little skeptical but willing to try something new because anxiety was taking over my life. Lorraine was so friendly and understanding, even from the first email I sent and telephone consultation. It was really helpful to discuss some of the issues I was dealing with with no judgement at all.The techniques I learned have made a huge difference and I feel a lot more in control and able to make conscious decisions about what I want from my life. I have a much more positive outlook now and would definitely recommend Lorraines therapy to anyone.
I would 100% recommend Affinity & Beyond Therapy to anybody looking for help/support surrounding their wellbeing! Lorraine is amazing at what she does!
The therapy & support she provides is like no other experience with counselling/therapy I’ve had before. She uses a range of techniques and therapies which she is SO knowledgeable on, whatever she can do to suit you!
The best thing, for me, is that Lorraine was able to help me to understand my own mind. It’s a long process & you have to continue independently outside of sessions with everything Lorraine helps you with in sessions, in order for it to help you. But as long as you’re committed.. the benefits you will feel are like nothing else. Everything she showed/taught me and helped me with was always based around me.. which I know seems obvious.. but with past experiences in therapy, nobody has ever gone to the trouble Lorraine does to cater therapy to help you.
I can’t thank Lorraine enough for opening my mind & helping me to discover.. ME, again!
"After going through one of the worst experiences of my life I kept just trying to carry on telling everyone I’m ok I’m ok! I knew I needed some help with letting go and moving forward! That’s when I turned to Lorraine and of course I was nervous going to someone who had no idea what had happened I felt uneasy and uncomfortable but Lorraine immediately took that all away with her kindness and warmth! She made me feel at ease from the start which I was so thankful for! Lorraine has changed my life more than she will ever know I’m much more relaxed and not so anxious anymore I cannot thank Lorraine enough for what she has done."
I would 100% recommend Lorraine's services to anyone suffering from any kind of mental health issue, especially low mood. She is kind empathetic and understanding. It takes a lot of work on your part to keep up the practice, but the sessions are very effective in themselves. I would also recommend her hypnotherapy services to anyone who struggles with binge-eating.
I suffered with anxiety for many years; prescribed medication only treated the top layer, I've tried many ways to conquer this condition, psychiatrist, psychologists, acupuncture, I didn't feel any these treatments beneficial.
As an alternative, I looked into Hypnotherapy, on completion of my research; I decided to pursue this as a course of treatment.
I met Lorraine, during our 1st consultation, Lorraine allowed me to explain what difficulties I was experiencing without interrupting, on conclusion of our 1st meeting, Lorraine had explained a programme we'd explore with future sessions, allowing me to manage my condition, subsequent sessions really made a huge difference how I was able to bring my condition under control.
I am really glad I took that step to pick up the phone to call. Picking up the phone was the hardest part.
I was given Lorraines contact details by a relative, and was pretty apprehensive in giving therapy a try to begin with. After struggling with my mental health for a number of years, and finding it hard to talk and face certain aspects of my life, I agreed to try something different for the sake of everyone else’s concerns. I was extremely skeptical about therapy and as it was something I had never experienced before, and didn’t feel it would help me. I was completely wrong!!
From the initial phone call Lorraine made me feel at ease and I eventually found it easier to open up, Lorraine listens and understands and the exercises and methods we worked through together have made such a massive difference to me as a person and the way I see things already, and I finally feel able to move forward and have a more positive future. It is a process you must work with Lorraine on, and of course it will not “cure” you altogether but the whole process has given me ways of coping that I would never have tried before or even known about if it wasn’t for Lorraine’s expertise and knowledge in what she does. I honestly can’t thank Lorraine enough, I know this is the start of a more positive future and getting therapy is one of the best decisions I have ever made. Thank you so much Lorraine, you have been amazing.
