Tracey Boothby MBACP Masters Diploma Counselling Trauma Practitioner
Hi, I’m Tracey , thanks for looking at my practice and information.
I value individual differences , being honest and having integrity. I feel it’s important to find your own path standing out from the crowd, connection, relationship.
I believe everyone can be empowered to find their own answers. I don’t own a magic wand and I am not a fixer and I don’t have all the answers, but I will have a suggestion or two, plenty of strategies and I may challenge your negative belief system. I know I will sit by your side in chaos, I can tolerate being stuck and silent. I am not afraid to be afraid, nor walk with you into a dark place.
I have worked with both adults and children/ young people. I currently work in a local independent school as their counsellor. I work with staff closely and know how the education system works. This can help hugely when seeking advice, as I may be able to point you as a parent or guardian in the right direction, when seeking help for your child. I have worked in this area for 18 years. I have extensive knowledge of PTSD, ADHD, PDA,OCD, intrusive thoughts and general anxiety disorders and depression.
I have also worked with adults and children who have been sexually and emotionally abused and raped. This work is specialized and I am a trained trauma practitioner.
I work creatively and like to think outside of the counselling room. So if you like art let me know. If you like animals I have a therapy dog called Hetty who will be happy to keep you company throughout a session. We can meet outside by a beach and walk and talk. I work with children using play therapy, art and music and try to make it a fun and relaxing experience for them, however I am mindful that they are here to change some behaviours.
Counselling is about building a trusting relationship and a good rapport. I will stay with you throughout this process and help you understand more about you and achieve your goal. I have seen many individuals make dramatic changes to their lives. I know this is possible and I know we can do it together.

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
