About Tracey

Hello, my name is Tracey, and I use the pronouns she/her. Thank you for visiting my profile. I understand the courage it takes to seek counselling, especially if you are used to putting others needs ahead of your own. I can offer you a space to be yourself and time to explore whatever it is that has been causing you concern. I can draw on various models and theories to help you take charge of what makes you unhappy and tailor a strategy to help you feel more empowered. Counselling takes courage and determination, and I believe you have that inside you. I believe that you can be the very best version of yourself, and I would like to help you get there. I offer a free thirty-minute consultation by telephone. Please reach out.

Get to Know Tracey

Why did you choose to become a therapist?

Like many people, life has thrown me curveballs. One major curveball was the death of my mum in 2013. I was devastated and needed someone to talk to, so I reached out to a counsellor. Reaching out was the best decision I made because my counsellor helped me to understand my grief. I felt that I had to connect with others, so I became a volunteer support worker at a women's mental health charity. Service users would often say that counselling had changed their life and I knew this to be true from my own experience. I would admire the counsellors and the work they did; I never thought that one day I could be a counsellor! Since then, there have been many times when I have had the privilege to be with a client when they have experienced a life-changing moment.

Why do you think integrative therapy is the most effective form of therapy?

I really like Integrative therapy because it allows a counsellor to practice more than one model of counselling. I believe it's effective because the counsellor has a good understanding of different theories and how they can be applied to the client's situation. That way, the client can understand why they may feel the way they do and explore strategies to help them move forward in life.

How would you describe your therapy session & approach?

My counselling sessions are never the same because the client very much guides them. However, I believe that our core beliefs impact self-esteem and the way we view ourselves and the world around us, so it's a good idea to get to know the client and their experiences that way, I can help the client get back on track. I think psycho-education is definitely the way to go; helping the client understand why they might feel a certain way and giving them the tools empowers the client and helps them grow through self-awareness.

What are your Top 3 professional achievements so far?

1) I have recently achieved a Bachelor of Science Degree with Honours in Counselling. 2)I have achieved a Foundation Degree of Science in Counselling with a Distinction. 3) I have been a volunteer at a charitable organisation for seven years working with women with mental health issues and those who are in a domestic abuse relationship, both current or historical. During that time I have been both a support worker, a counsellor and I have co-facilitated a CBT course and grief and bereavement course.
