About me

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 pupil referral unit and also 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 am hoping to continue my ongoing professional development and train as a supervisor.

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.
