Tracy Pinder MBACP (Accred) Adv. Dip In Integrative Counselling
81 High Street
Hello and welcome! I’m a professional, caring and experienced BACP Accredited Counsellor. I work with clients from 18 upwards to the elderly and am experienced in a wide range of issues. I support people in a crisis, with major life changes or self development. I have been a client myself and my life experiences enable me to build a good rapport, support my clients and facilitate people in finding new ways in addressing their problems.
My Approach and How I can help
I'm trained in Integrative Counselling, which means that I can draw from different approaches to suit your needs. The approaches I use are Psychodynamic, Humanistic and Transpersonal. The model I trained in is a relational model which is about the different ways people relate to each other. This is particularly useful when working with relationship issues. I believe my relationship with you is an equally important part of counselling as my training and experience. Our relationships, experiences and environment in childhood influence our relationships and shape who we are today, and awareness and insight can be gained from exploring our past to positively influence the future.
Some of the issues I have worked with are:
abuse (sexual abuse and emotional/mental abuse)
bereavement or loss
I aim to provide you with a safe confidential space to share your thoughts and feelings without judgement. I offer support while finding a way to help you cope with your life and feel more in control. You will gain awareness, insight and understanding of your thoughts, feelings and problems. I can help you explore your own answers, see challenges from a different perspective, build motivation and inspire hope for the future.
I have extensive hours of practice working with survivors of rape and sexual abuse at RASASC (Rape and Sexual Abuse Support Centre), which also meant I was also working with related issues such as depression, self-esteem, loss, anger, trauma, stress and relationship issues. I have also worked in a women's prison and a women's centre and in private practice. I also work with men.
I work with individual adults on a short term or long term basis.
Why not take that first step and give me a call or email me today!
We can discuss what you need and how I an help without obligation.
