Taking back control without feeling guilty

Anne’s situation came to a head with care for her elderly father on top of uncertainty around work, which left her feeling guilty and on the verge of a breakdown.


When I first met Anne, she was an avid reader of self-help books and thought she knew what she “should” be doing but found that easier-said-than-done when she had an ongoing sense of panic.


In our first session, it became clear to Anne, that her guilt and her overwhelm was caused by something she had little or no control over and this had drastically increased her need for control over everything.


In our sessions we explored where Anne’s need for control had come from and her beliefs behind this. I used techniques to give Anne more choice in how she reacted to the challenges she was facing, so that her response could be different.


Anne says “I suddenly felt more in control of me and I am comfortable that I don’t need to control everything else...
​​I couldn't recommend Lorna more as she listens, and really hears what you are saying. She has the remarkable ability to gently ask questions and then encourage you to challenge your thinking and perhaps make different decisions, hard as they can sometimes initially feel, that will have a more successful outcome.”

Now Anne’s got a better understanding of how she comes across to others, how she deals with others and how she can connect with people in a compassionate way, without needing to rescue them.


Anne’s relationships have been transformed. And professionally, she is now able to focus on her work guilt-free, without her personal life distracting her.
