About me

Hello! My name is Tracey and I'm a Person-Centred Counsellor & Psychotherapist, professionally trained to Degree level and am an Accredited Member of the National Counselling & Psychotherapy Society (NCPS) and a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). I work in-person out of my therapy rooms on the Isle of Wight.

Whilst my personal experience has been of anxiety, depression, bereavement and relationship issues as well as other life challenges, I respect the fact that you don't see the world like I do and your lived experiences are personal to you.

From my own experience of receiving counselling support, I know how courageous taking this first step to counselling has been, and the importance of finding someone you can trust, are comfortable with and feel able to share your innermost thoughts and emotions. It is crucial that you feel heard, what you share remains confidential and that you feel genuine warmth and understanding. 

Alongside my Private Practice, I provide support as a Bereavement Volunteer and Supervisor for the local branch of a national charity, a role which has been my privilege to be able to do for 14 years as well as working as a sessional counsellor for an Island based service which provides counselling at an affordable price for survivors of sexual assault and rape.

I understand we are all individual and of the importance for finding a perfect 'fit', because in therapy there is no 'one size fits all' so my work is tailored to each unique person, walking with them as they find their own way to a fulfilling and happier life. I offer a space that is safe, non-judgmental and confidential for you to work at your own pace.

My work is mostly in-person with adults 18+ years in my therapy rooms and can also be via telephone (UK), online video call via a secure platform as well as FaceTime & WhatsApp. Each 50 minutes counselling session costs £55.00.

I offer a brief introductory 'phone call for those genuinely ready to start therapy.

If what I'm offering sounds as though it could meet your needs, or if you have any questions, either please call, message or email me. I aim to reply within 48 hours.

NCPS
National Counselling & Psychotherapy Society (NCPS)

The National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society

This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.

In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

BACP
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.

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.
