Tracy Carter - BA (Hons)/Integrative Reg. Member - BACP
I offer a private, safe and relaxing environment where I offer therapy tailored to your individual needs - a truly bespoke and professional therapy service with one thing in mind; your well-being ...
I specialise in : -
Bereavement Counselling (Inc. Child Loss)
Young Person Counselling (11yrs +) & Teens.
I have worked with those, whom have experienced difficulties with Life, Relationships, Anxiety, Depression, Bullying, Stress and more, and with those whom have endured Bereavement & Loss/Child Loss.
I also offer Couples/Family Therapy.
Whatever your reason for counselling or if you just want to talk, I am here to listen.
I am a qualified Person Centred and Integrative therapist. I work in an eclectic way, which means I take elements from different models, it is the combination of directive and non-directive counselling, this means that I will work with you to ensure we find the most effective way forward for you.
I am a Registered member of the BACP and adhere to guidelines of the Ethical Framework, I am fully insured and attend regular Supervision and CPD.
I work in Private Practice, EAP organisations - local and away, I also work with Families.
SINCERE, NOT EVASIVE
Anxieties about Attending
It can be daunting to attend to your first counselling session, but I would like to encourage you to do so anyway if it feels like the right thing to do. Sometimes the first step is the hardest, but you will find it is worth it to go through it. Once in the room, we can take things at your own pace, without judgement or pressure whatsoever.
I take an open, compassionate and respectful approach to your counselling. We can talk about all of the difficulties that you cannot talk about elsewhere. And we’ll go at your pace.
Counselling is your decision and your's alone. No one can force you to attend, nor can they stop you from attending.
Counselling is NOT about fixing you, your partner or your family member, but discussing and working through your problems with you, if that is what you want.
I believe that we all have the ability to know what works for us and what doesn’t. External stress and pressure can take us away from our inner knowing of what is right for us and how we will flourish. It is all too common to be told what we need rather than be listened to.
I will not offer you advice or tell you what to do. My job is creating a safe space for us to explore whatever feels right or in need of attention for you.
Over time you may come to new understandings of yourself and your relationships with others which will help you to live in a way that feels more satisfying for you.
A Wide range of experience working with those whom have had dilemma's with -
*Bereavement & Loss/Child Loss
*Low Self Esteem
*Anxiety & Depression
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
I can arrange to have an informal chat with you over the phone if you feel unsure or have any questions - without any obligation on your part at all. If you then decide you would like to meet with me, an appointment can be arranged usually within the same week.
HOW LONG DOES EACH APPOINTMENT LAST?
All appointments are for a full hour.
HOW MANY APPOINTMENTS WILL I NEED?
The number of sessions we have will be guided by you.
If you come wishing to work on a specific concern then we can work short term (6 sessions). If you are wanting to change a pattern of a life time then we may need longer (10 sessions +).
WHAT IF I AM UNSURE?
If you are unsure about committing to regular appointments but still need to talk, it may be helpful to have an appointment and then contact me at a later date, if/when you feel ready to meet again.
I offer sessions, all individuals MUST be in agreement if they WISH to attend.

This poem by Theodore Roszak (1981) sums up what I aim to offer as a counsellor:
You and I….
we meet as strangers, each carrying a mystery within us.
I cannot say who you are; I may never know you completely.
But I trust you are a person in your own right, possessed of a
beauty and value that are the Earth's richest treasures.
So I make this promise to you:
I will impose no identities upon you, but will invite you to become
yourself without shame or fear.
I will hold open a space for you in the world and defend your
right to fill it with an authentic vocation.
For as long as your search takes, you have my loyalty.
