About me

My name is Tracey Riggott and I welcome you to Self Perception Therapies. I am a qualified person-centred counsellor, a registered and accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have 13 years of experience in offering one to one counselling for adults.

This is a time for you. You may want to reflect upon your relationship with yourself, your relationships with others. You may, for example, be feeling isolated, anxious, stuck or overwhelmed. No matter what challenges you are facing and experiencing, therapy is a time for you, for you to be listened to, to be heard, you do not have to do this on your own. I am a caring and approachable person, I enjoy my work and want to support you, for you to gain confidence in yourself. I facilitate and provide an accepting, non-judgemental, safe, and confidential space. A space and a time where you can really talk and work at your own pace in exploring and reflecting upon what you are experiencing from your past or the present. I will work with you to address your needs.

Through my years of continual learning and training, I can fetch other elements of counselling approaches into our therapy together, if required and appropriate. I will support you in gaining a greater understanding of yourself, for you to improve your quality of life and make your own decisions in moving forwards. You have taken the first step in looking at my page for support.

If you feel you may be interested in working with me and feel ready to take the next step in accessing support please get in touch. We can then arrange a free 30-minute consultation to discuss any questions, concerns, or uncertainties that you may have.

Training, qualifications & experience

My counselling journey began in 2008 and continues to be a journey of professional and personal development. I have supported a wide range of clients experiencing many different issues.

From 2008-2012 my volunteering work was at a female refuge support group where I counselled survivors of domestic abuse.

From 2012-2024 I worked for a charity that supports people affected by another person’s drug or alcohol misuse. I was the counselling coordinator for several years and in addition to my counselling, on a one-to-one basis, I offered Reiki (energy work) and mindfulness relaxation techniques. I have facilitated art groups peer led support groups and focus groups in mindfulness. I co-created and delivered community rehabilitation programmes offering psychological support to small groups of individuals suffering with alcohol or drug dependency alongside one of their family members or friends.  Over the last 2 years I have been the lead for male domestic abuse, offering males practical and emotional support.

In brief, I have experience of supporting clients in the following areas:

  • Domestic abuse
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Bereavement
  • Addiction
  • Trauma
  • Anxiety
  • Low mood
  • Dealing with loss, shame, guilt, stress and low self-esteem

Some of my qualifications:

  • British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) accreditation
  • Diploma in counselling
  • Reiki Master
  • Emotional Freedom Technique practitioner- level 2.

  • Freedom programme facilitator

I partake in ongoing professional development to ensure that I continue to provide a high standard of service within the counselling profession and adhere to the BACP ethical framework and code of good practice. I have full insurance and an enhanced DBS certificate. I am also registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Further information

I offer counselling on a one-to-one basis, either face to face, over the telephone, or via an online video platform (Zoom). It depends on your preferences and your circumstances such as physical or psychological needs, your location, time limitations as to which would suit your needs best in being able to access therapy.

When I work:

I offer daytime and evening appointments. I understand that it is not always possible to schedule the same day and time due to professional and personal commitments and I try to be as flexible as I can.

I offer both short, mid and long-term therapy, the number of sessions you partake in depends on your individual needs, what your presenting issues are and what you wish to achieve through accessing therapy.

My practice is run from a home studio, based on the first floor of the property. It is a safe, confidential and welcoming environment with free off-road parking. It is located in the village of Brierley, Barnsley, South Yorkshire. Brierley borders onto West Yorkshire and therefore is also ideally located to the Wakefield surrounding areas.
