About me

Hello my name is Tracey Peters. Whatever our age and stage of life it is likely to have some tricky moments. School, work, family, 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 children and young people, 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.

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.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have completed extensive professional training including those courses listed below.

Keeping my knowledge and expertise up to date is important to me. I have completed many additional short courses to ensure the work I do with my clients is based on high quality, up to date research and thinking from the counselling world.

  • Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling (Level 5)

Member organisations

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.

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 gov.uk , 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.
