Tracey Billham - MBACP (Accred) Reg. Counselling for Couples and Individuals
My work includes Couple Counselling and Individual Counselling.
Individual Counselling is an opportunity for you to come and talk to me about any issues or problems that you have in any area of your life. with the safety of confidentiality and non judgemental support.
Couple Counselling is 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.
It may be you prefer to come without your partner, or if you are single and have experienced relationship issues that cause you not to be able to find a partner or stay in a relationship then counselling can help.
I can work with couples who are looking to seperate and how to do this amicably for you and the family.
It can help your partner gain a better understanding of what life is like for you, it also can give you an insight into your internal system.
There are lots of reasons why people come to counselling, talking through your problems in a safe and non judgmental environment can help you to make change.
My role is to explore your 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.
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.

Each client has a different experience to bring therefore, I offer a way of working that is non prescriptive to suit you and I include different types of counselling approaches. The counselling sessions are not restricted to a fixed number so you can have as few or many sessions as you like.
Life can be very busy and time may be an issue for you so I like to be as flexible as I can and not hold you to a weekly time slot. If you prefer to book week by week to include different days and times that is an option I offer, alternatively if you prefer a definite weekly booking we can choose a mutually convenient time for your booking.
It is most important that we develop a good therapeutic relationship and you feel comfortable to work with me, this will encourage the process to be successful.
