Tracey Thomas MA, Reg. MBACP (Accred)
I am passionate about giving people space to think. I will listen to your thoughts and feelings and work with you to make some sense of them. I will be alongside you as we develop a new understanding of your experiences. I will offer a safe place to create and imagine, to try new ways of being and find out what is a good fit for you. I will encourage you to make the change that you want to experience.
I offer short-term focussed weekly individual psychotherapy to adults from a consulting room in Leicester city centre. We can meet for a one off session to explore what might be helpful to you, to discuss what you would like to gain from therapy and to see if you feel you would like us to continue to work together.
I am an associate of Baines-Ball Counselling and Psychotherapy. If I believe that another associate is better matched to help you with your particular needs then I am able to refer within the practice.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have worked as a psychotherapist in Leicester for a number of years with people who live or work in or around the city. I have a particular interest in gender and relationship diversity.
My most recent qualification is an MA Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy (University of Leicester).
I am accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and work within their Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.
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 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.

Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
