Hello my name is Tracy Dyer. I have an Honours Degree in Psychology and a Masters Degree in Psychotherapy and Counselling
I am accredited with the UKCP as a Clinical Psychotherapist and work with an Integrative model. I am a member of the British Psychological Society and also registered with Social Work England. I hold a Diploma in Social Work (Children and Families Specialism)
I offer, individual therapy and counselling for adults, older/retired adults and EAP services
Other specialist work could include:
- Early attachment focussed interventions, e.g therapeutic re-parenting techniques
- Promoting positive Mental Health and resiliance in children (advice to parents/carers)
- Behaviour Management Support to parents (of children/young people 0-18yrs)
I have a particular interest in the transition to Motherhood and beyond, including how this may affect our sense of self, identity and emotional wellbeing.
I am acutely aware that due to the pressures placed on us in today's busy world, stress, anxiety and depression can be experienced and relationships become affected and I hope you are able to seek the right support at the right time to prevent these issues from impacting on the quality of your life.
