name is Lorraine and welcome to
I am a UK qualified counsellor
based in Chiclana de la Frontera.
I am BACP Registered (British
Association for Counselling and
Psychotherapy) and I abide by
the BACP Ethical Framework for
the Counselling Professions
(Code of Ethics). I offer
integrative counselling in
English to adults and young
people and I use a
approach which means that I
follow your lead in what you
want to talk about and bring to
There are times in life when
talking to a professional
counsellor can be helpful. This
may be because you are
experiencing difficulties in
your life or because you feel
stuck, anxious or depressed.
Perhaps you need support in
making a difficult decision or
perhaps you just need someone to
talk to in confidence about
whatever is on your mind.
As your counsellor, my aim is to
have a relationship of trust
with you that allows you to feel
comfortable and safe to work
with whatever issues are
important for you. I do this by
warmly accepting and respecting
whatever you bring to
counselling and not judging you.
The counselling space and
sessions are yours to explore
whatever you need – this might
be what is going on for you in
the present, issues from the
past, feelings about the future,
or it may be to gain a deeper
understanding of your feelings,
thoughts, behaviours and ways of
being or your ways of relating
to other people. I will support
you in working with whatever you
are facing and want to explore.
As an integrative counsellor, I
am trained in various models of
counselling and psychotherapy,
from humanistic to psychodynamic
modalities, all of which are
underpinned by the latest
research in neuroscience. I draw
on whichever models best support
your particular needs.
Integrative counselling is also
about integrating different
parts of yourself so that you
may gain greater access to your
whole self, your inner resources
and your full potential.
In addition to talking together
in sessions, I also offer arts
materials which you may choose
to use. Using the arts and your
images and dreams can be a
profound experience and help
bring about new insights. Art
and play also largely forms the
language of communication in
counselling young people.
