Tracy Elsdon Dip HE MBACP
I am a qualified registered counsellor working with adults, children and adolescents.
I aim to work in a non-judgemental and confidential way which can provide a safe, secure and inviting environment where you can express thoughts and feelings which can enable change.
I am an integrative counsellor which enables me to use different therapeutic approaches to suit individual personalities and presenting issues therefore treating each client as unique. When working with younger clients I work creatively with art, toys, puppets and sand tray which can help express and understand their feelings easier than solely talking therapy. Some older adolescents enjoy working creatively with the use of metaphor and creative writing. Using these techniques enables a therapy that can be personal to each client.
I am available to contact by mobile if you wish to book an appointment or have any further questions. If I do not answer immediately I will try to respond to your message within 24 hours. Alternatively you can send an email.
