Tracey Brittain, Child & Adult Psychotherapist. MA, BA Hons, MBACP (accredited)
My private practice is based in Weybridge & Thames Ditton in Surrey.
I work with adults, couples and children and guarantee breakthroughs in the counselling.
In my extensive work with children, I use creative techniques such as sand play, drawings and using symbols. Presenting issues I often see include anxiety over exams, self harming, phobias, OCD, bereavement, erratic mood swings, anger issues, technology and other addictions, problems with friendships, bullying, destructive behaviour at school, an inability to be present (daydreaming), ADHD, autistic traits, relationship issues, panic disorders, depression and separation anxiety.
Tracey is one of the 22 therapists in the UK whom is a child EMDR specialist. She frequently handles difficult case referrals from CAMHS, adoption agencies and the NHS.
As a seasoned psychotherapist working with adults, I have encountered many different types of addictions such as alcohol, work, sex and often work directly with family members affected by these addictions too - often in couples sessions where one partner has the addiction and the other is trying to live alongside them.
I work with many other presenting issues such as generalised anxiety disorder, bereavement, loneliness, trauma, depression, relationship issues and abuse.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) can reduce trauma significantly with optimum results. I am fully trained to work with adults and children using EMDR techniques with incredible results.
Clients with addictions or compulsive thought processes are often unaware of their feelings and how to get through those feelings without turning to a substance, having obsessive thinking or just feeling sad. I explore these feelings with clients as they emerge, encouraging other ways of dealing with them.
You can see my at my office which has good parking and near Weybridge station. I can also do FaceTime, Zoom, Skype calls if you're not local.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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.
