About me

Tracy Simpson is a counsellor and psychotherapist registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, (BACP).

Tracy has over 14 yrs experience in private practice, counselling clients presenting with a wide range of issues.  Tracy provides a tailored counselling approach for clients to explore troubling thoughts & feelings, such as stress, anxiety, panic & depression, and family or relationship problems.

Tracy's counselling practice is primarily designed to achieve positive results using solution-focused and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Other therapies used include Humanistic and Psychodynamic.

As an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist, Tracy offers clients a safe relationship to explore anything troubling them in complete confidence.

Many clients present with upset and distress and have problems with feelings, thoughts, behaviour, or relationships.  Sudden life crises such as bereavement or job loss or lack of direction can also adversely impact.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
