Tracy Creed MBACP, Dip.HIC BCPC
I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor. My background is in Nursing, this experience has shaped my ability to develop strong and trusting therapeutic relationships with my clients based on compassion and empathy. I have experience of working with a broad range of issues with clients aged from teens onwards.

I will work gently and collaboratively with you, providing a safe and supportive space to explore the difficulties you are experiencing in the hope of moving towards a greater sense of calm. I offer short or longer term counselling, so you can decide on the length of therapy. I work face to face and online or by telephone.

What to expect in your first session
The first session provides a foundation for future sessions. It is also an opportunity for us to get a sense of whether it feels right for us to work together as it's important for you to feel comfortable when embarking on therapy. In this session, I will ask you questions about what you’re struggling with and what brings you to counselling, it will also be helpful for me to gain some insight into your past. Together we will look at what you would like to focus on and gain from the counselling.
