About me

Hello, I'm Tracie. I will listen to you carefully, and create a safe environment of trust and confidentiality where you can relax and deal with the issues troubling you. I offer you a space where you know you will not be judged, but be accepted for who and all that you are. By allowing you the space and time to express and explore whatever is stopping you from living to your potential, I will help you find your own answers, bringing lasting change.

I know it can be hard to take steps towards help. I can help you with this difficult time in your life; we all need to be able to talk things through with someone at times. Our family and friends may be involved in the problem, or we just don't want to burden them any more.  An objective listener can be best. I can offer you skilled, professional and caring support. You are showing strength in seeking help, and we will build on that together.

How do you choose a counsellor? It needn't be complicated - I am here to really hear you, whatever you want to explore in counselling. If you have something troubling you, we will look at it together, to help you gain understanding.

My personal life experiences and struggles have led me to be a warm, compassionate, sensitive and empathic listener for you. I genuinely respect you, and believe in your ability to make positive changes in your life. I offer a willingness to share your therapeutic journey with you, enabling you to reach the goals you have set out to achieve.

Training, qualifications & experience

ABC Level 4 Diploma in the Theory & Practice of Counselling from Castle College, Stapleford, Nottingham.
Accredited therapist with National Counselling Society.


I worked in a voluntary capacity for respected local organisation Reach Out Counselling for over 3 years, offering disadvantaged clients access to counselling that they may otherwise not have had. This has given me a broad spectrum of different client issues that I have been honoured to hear and help with.
 
In this capacity, and in my subsequent private practice, I have dealt with and supported clients for over 9 years who:
are stressed / anxious,
have relationship issues,
have been bereaved,
suffered sexual abuse or rape / neglect / emotional abuse / mental abuse,
have Bi-Polar disorder / anxiety / depression / eating disorders,
had an abortion,
contemplate suicide,
have careers issues, and more besides.

Key details

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.

In an upstairs room, as of 27th October 2020. This unfortunately alters accessibility.
