Tracey Billham - MBACP (Accred) Reg. Counselling for Individuals and Couples
Thank you you for viewing my page. I have been working as counsellor for fourteen years. I am fully accredited with the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
Well I guess we all go through difficult and hard times in our lives. For example, our relationship may not be making us feel happy or secure, our jobs may be bringing us problems, decision making can be hard or maybe we have lost a loved one and are struggling to come to terms with that. There are lots of reasons why people come to counselling and in my experience talking through your problems, in a safe and non judgmental environment, helps us make sense of your thoughts and feelings. It also through full exploration gives us a greater understanding and insight which informs us of how we can move you forward to enjoy a more harmonious, happy calmer life.
Clients do not always know at the beginning of the counselling what their goals might be, this can be very normal, we can work through this to find an achievable outcome.
My role is to explore the issues with you and to listen and hear what you are thinking and feeling and to help you find and make positive changes. Often clients have a feeling of being stuck and need help and support with moving forward.
My work includes relationship counselling where I offer therapy to you and your partner together. Working in the sessions with your partner helps you to be heard and to be understood. Equally it can give you a better understanding of your partner. Counselling can identify patterns of behavior and show us what is helpful for our relationship and what is not. It helps to gently consider and implement change.
I can work with couples who are looking to seperate and how to do this amicably for the family.
I also work with individual clients who present a very varied and wide range of issues. These can include problems such as bereavement, anxiety, worry, self worth, confidence, feeling alone, which can be overwhelming and block us from seeing a clear direction, future or outcome. Talking together through these issues will enable change and happiness.
