Tracey York, BA (Hons) Counselling, MBACP
Sometimes it can be difficult to talk to family or friends about how you really feel, and you just need someone to talk to who is able to take their time to listen to you, without judgement.
You may have experienced difficult life events and/or upsetting or traumatic experiences (whether recent or a long time ago), or have developed a long-term health condition or disability, or maybe you just feel sad or anxious but you’re not sure why.
Whatever your situation, some experiences can create difficult emotions such as grief, guilt, sadness, confusion, anger and low self-esteem, which I can help you to manage during our therapy work together.
I use a person-centred approach as the basis of my counselling work which can help you to make sense of your life experiences and current circumstances. I will support you in developing your own solutions to difficulties and help you to re-build a sense of who you are and how you would like to live your life.
Our working relationship will form an integral part of the therapeutic process with the sessions moving at your pace, in a safe environment, free from judgement.
In addition to the person-centred approach I also use solution focused and positive psychology techniques. Solution focused therapy is useful if you wish to have short term therapy and you already have an idea about your preferred future but maybe need some help in getting there. Positive psychology encourages you to not only accept yourself by living authentically, but to also focus on your strengths which then encourages emotional resilience and personal growth.
Please take a look at my website and if you have any further questions then do get in touch.
