Tracy Bacon MBACP one to one and couples (relationship/marriage) counselling..
James Gore Drive
Hi I specialise in helping individuals and couples with relationship issues. I offer my introductory assessment session at the reduced rate of £20, so we can explore the possibility of working together. Are you ready to make changes?
Do you feel like your relationship needs a makeover? Would you like to look at ways to stop the arguments? Are there problems that are impacting your relationship? Maybe you would like to improve the quality of your relationship? Maybe you would like a closer relationship, but everything you do seems to push him/her further away?
I find that improving communication can be the key to a happy relationship.When you try to improve things on your own it can be difficult to see the wood from the trees and you may feel isolated and alone and feel that no one could possibly understand what is happening.It often takes a fresh pair of eyes or someone unconnected to your family to help unravel what is happening.
My role is to offer you confidential sessions where you feel comfortable to talk to me about anything, whether its your current situation that is troubling you or something that happened in the past.
My style of Counselling is to work collaboratively using encouragement, gentle challenging with a strong sense of respect and autonomy. I believe we all have the ability to find the answers for ourselves, sometimes we just need a little help getting there.
By listening and paying close attention to what you are saying I gain insight into your world, together we unravel any confused thought, feelings and beliefs helping you develop a greater understanding of yourself, your life and your relationships, empowering you to take control over your future.

I understand that sometimes life can be hard and that you need a little help. I know from personal experience how hard it is to make the first step. We all have times in our lives that are painful and experiences that are difficult. Emotional and psychological distress are natural responses to such events and are incredibly common, and yet seeking support can sometimes feel overwhelming.
Sometimes the way we feel can effect our everyday lives, including relationships, our ability to carry out activities and can cause distress. It can be really difficult facing the painful reality of what is happening, I can't take the pain away, but I can walk alongside you in that pain and we can look for a brighter future for you together.
