Tracey Thompson Integrative Counsellor MNCS

About me

Hi, I'm Tracey and I'm here to listen to you without judgement and with warmth and empathy. Are you feeling anxious? Angry? Did you wake up today thinking this was the day you wanted to change things? I work with adults, children and young people. I have particular experience with vulnerable adults and young people suffering from the effects of long-term sexual violence, abuse and trauma, perhaps resulting in identity issues. I can be a place where you, you and your partner or your child can open up and learn to be yourselves again, to drop the anxiety and to express yourself honestly. I am an Anxiety UK accredited counsellor.

I use an approach which draws on many theories and concepts of counselling, so it suits you. I can offer therapy in the following ways: face - face, walking, telephone, online, video (VSEE) and text support. I provide lower cost counselling to students and a reduced rate to couples too. I work creatively and provide a safe comfortable place for you to download and talk it all out.

I work in schools; primary and secondary, with vulnerable, scared and anxious children. I volunteer one day a week at a local women's centre and have a lot of experience in anxiety, trauma and abuse related issues. It might be work or exam pressure, social media stress, friendship and relationship issues: talking it out does work!

Please note I counsel from home and we have pets in our home - dog and 2 cats. This is important if you have pet allergies/phobias. They are never allowed in the room (unless you want them to!) but they are in the house.

Thanks!

Further information

I offer a reduced rate for trainee counsellors. I thoroughly enjoy working with people as they embark on a career which brings me so much personal fulfilment.

I also offer a limited number of low cost sessions to people who belong to gender and sexual minorities, in recognition of the marginalisation faced, and the difficulties in finding therapists who are non-judgmental. If income is a barrier, please do not hesitate to get in touch for a chat.
