Tracy Simpson MBACP
I am a BACP registered Counsellor with over 10 yrs in private practice. I provide a tailored counselling approach for clients to explore troubling thoughts & feelings, such as anxiety, panic & depression and family or relationship problems.
As an experienced integrative counsellor I can offer you a safe relationship in which you can explore anything that is troubling you in complete confidence.
You may be feeling upset and distressed and have problems with your feelings, thoughts, relationships with others, or behaviour.
You may have had a sudden life crisis such as bereavement, or have lost your job. You may feel you lack direction and that life makes no sense.
My therapy is an integration of Person-Centred, Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I tailor the therapeutic interventions to the client rather than make the client fit into one mode of therapy.
