Tracy Bacon MBACP specialising in relationship issues, anxiety and bereavement.
There are many reasons for seeking therapy. Are you feeling sad and unhappy, confused, low in confidence or self esteem. Do you have relationship issues, anxiety or ocd or maybe you have suffered from bereavement or loss? Does this impact on your day to day life and relationships?
My role is to offer you confidential sessions where you feel comfortable to talk to me about anything, whether its your current situation that is troubling you or something that happened in the past.
My style of Counselling is to work collaboratively using encouragement, gentle challenging with a strong sense of respect and autonomy. I believe we all have the ability to find the answers for ourselves, sometimes we just need a little help getting there.
By listening and paying close attention to what you are saying I gain insight into your world, together we unravel any confused thought, feelings and beliefs helping you develop a greater understanding of yourself, your life and your relationships, empowering you to take control over your future.

I understand that sometimes life can be hard and that you need a little help. I know from personal experience how hard it is to make the first step. We all have times in our lives that are painful and experiences that are difficult. Emotional and psychological distress are natural responses to such events and are incredibly common, and yet seeking support can sometimes feel overwhelming.
Sometimes the way we feel can effect our everyday lives, including relationships, our ability to carry out activities and can cause distress. It can be really difficult facing the painful reality of what is happening, I can't take the pain away, but I can walk alongside you in that pain and we can look for a brighter future for you together.
