Child & Adult Psychotherapist. MA, BA Hons, MBACP (accredited)

About me

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.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Key details

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit , or contact this professional directly

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Having a disabled son myself I also see disabled children particularly those whom have had the SDR operation.
