Lorraine Way Registered MBACP Dip.Counselling
Whatever the reason is that has lead you to search for a counsellor, I can offer counselling to adults and young people in a confidential space where we can explore and reflect on the challenges you are facing, sometimes it is difficult for us to make sense of the feelings we are experiencing, I can offer you a safe and welcoming environment to do this.
As fully qualified Integrative counsellor I offer a safe, non-judgemental relationship within which to explore your sense of self, values, relationships, and patterns of behaviour. I will listen, support and challenge in order to help you clarify your experience, recognise stuck patterns, and find your own way of living life more fully.
HOW CAN COUNSELLING HELP
I believe that providing someone with psychological tools can be invaluable. I also believe in the power of a good connection between two people, to enable the client to unlock their potential and find courage, confidence, inspiration, success and happiness.
I understand that feelings don’t need to be avoided or feared, they just are. I feel adept at helping people overcome their griefs and their struggles. Above all my training however, and CENTRAL to my ethos as a practitioner in Mental Health is the belief that every body carries within them their own inner wisdom or inner guiding principle. Some refer to it as ‘the inner healer’ or intuition or unconscious intelligence. This inner wisdom is what I rely on. I know that all people are creative and that given the right circumstances, everyone can find their way. As someone once put it: the therapist is not an active agent but a “co-adventurer’ who intelligently supports what is happening.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and adhere to their ethical guidelines.
