Counselling & Supervision Motueka
My name is Lorraine Mullings.
I am a registered counsellor and supervisor, with over 20 years experience. I currently provide these services via online platforms, or in the wider Motueka area by arrangement.
I work with compassion and humour, using encouragement and empowerment to make my client feel at ease.
Seeing the client as the expert on their own life, I work alongside them to identify issues causing distress, highlight their strengths and identify areas that need change.
I have family in Auckland and the UK, I’m married and have an adult daughter.
When I have free time I love to sail and am a registered Day Skipper. The outdoors is my happy place - sailing, walking, cycling and swimming.
I spend time developing the counselling relationship to build up trust and respect.
I use a variety of approaches to build resiliency, to increase a sense of well-being and to learn new skills to overcome adversity.
Approaches include Client Centred, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Holistic Models of Wellbeing, Integrative Counselling, Solution Focused.
I believe that Supervision should be affirming and restorative.
To this end I work alongside supervisees to respectfully explore the safety and effectiveness of their practice, encouraging them to share their strengths and vulnerabilities.
In particular, I focus on professional and personal growth, as well as monitoring my supervisee’s health and wellbeing to guard against professional overload or burnout.
I mostly supervise counsellors and people within the education profession, but welcome enquiries from other workplaces.
I you would you like to know more or make an appointment, feel free to contact me.
