inConfidence is a small independent therapy practice based in Hitchin, Hertfordshire. A range of therapies are offered to individuals, covering a variety of issues and personal requirements.


Therapist and owner Lorraine Blackburn is experienced in psychotherapy, counselling and hypnosis. This means all sessions are flexible and uniquely tailored to meet your individual needs.

Lorraine holds diplomas in hypnotherapy, psychotherapy and counselling with advanced accreditations and is a registered member of the National Counselling Society. Naturally, everything discussed is in absolute confidence and treated with the utmost respect, in a safe and supportive space. Naturally, Lorraine does not discriminate based on age, gender, race, sexual orientation or background.
People from all walks of life are welcome to at the practice. Lorraine's special interests are adult survivors or victims of toxic/narcissistic relationships who have experienced the exploitations of others, be it their family, friends, co-workers or love relationships. She has a holistic approach to the many attending negative side effects of abusive relationships such as PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and C-PTSD (Complex-Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). 

Psychotherapy is a process, requiring a mixture of experience, education, intuition, self understanding and art. Lorraine is an integrated therapist using different approaches, which means all sessions can be flexible and tailored to meet you as a whole, focussing on your varying personal concerns and needs.

The psychotherapeutic relationship differs from other relationships in that it is limited to therapy sessions. A safe and supportive space is provided where unfinished business can be addressed. Past and present feelings can be explored in these sessions to gain insight and understanding of the influence they have on our past, present and future relationships and events.
