Hello my name is Tracey Peters. Life has it’s tricky moments. Work life, family life, our health and relationships can all be difficult to navigate and that’s before we add-in how we feel about ourselves. Sometimes we need a little space to think and work things through and that’s where my experience as a Counsellor may help.
As a fully qualified Counsellor and Counselling Tutor I have extensive experience of working with individuals and couples. I have been told I am friendly, approachable and a good listener.
I work in an integrative way, which just means that I have been trained to use a number of different counselling methods, which means we can work together in a way that works for you. We are all different after all, so a one size fits all approach in my experience can be a little limited.
My previous career in many organisations means that I understand how workplaces can be stressful, relationships with colleagues, bosses and employees can be difficult to cope with.
Understanding ourself and recognising our own feelings is so important. We often put ourselves and our own feelings low down our priority list, but how can we care for others if we don't take any care of ourselves?
I look forward to meeting you.

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.
