Tracy McCadden BSc(hons), Dip.couns, MBACP
115 Chorley Road
I provide a one to one counselling service, offering Person-Centred counselling, Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and Hypnotherapy. I can offer home visits for those unable to access the counselling centres which are based in Swinton, and Bolton, Manchester.
I have extensive experience in working in the mental health field, having provided both long-term and short-term therapy to individuals in various different organisations including the NHS and Women's Aid. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and also co-manage Counselling North West - an organisation run by counsellors for other counsellors.
I take a flexible approach to counselling clients, working to individual need and preference. Feel free to contact me for more information and an informal chat to see how I may be able to help you.

I have experience in working with many different issues from depression, stress, and anxiety, to phobias, compulsions, and abuse of all descriptions.

""I've had therapy in the past, this time was more positive due to atmosphere of setting & more in-depth discussion"
"I didn't feel I had any future before I started the sessions & now I feel as happy & positive as I've ever felt"
"Definitely recommend the service to others. There are so many different strategies available (which I wasn't aware of) that could be used to help through a variety of issues and will/can help me in the future"
