Tracy Emanuel-Pearson Registered MBACP
'What ever the reasons that have brought you here I understand that people have all sorts of reasons for coming to therapy, all are justified and you deserve to be heard'
Hi and welcome
What I do as a Counsellor...
My name is Tracy Emanuel Pearson,
I hold a Graduate Diploma in Professional Counselling of which I graduated from an accredited course within UCLAN in 2010. Currently I have a small private practice which I run from home but I am also happy to see clients at Appleseeds Health store in Ulverston Cumbria.
For clients unable to leave home I have included a section lower down.
As a professional body I belong to the BACP which is a governing body that exists to offer you as a client the highest level and standard of practice you would expect to receive from a therapist should you decide to undertake some support.
As part of the BACP requirements I am committed to keep up a continuous professional development which enhances my knowledge, skills and experiences to give you the best possible outcome and professional support you may seek from Counselling.
Data Protection regulations
I belong to and am registered with the ICO (Information Commissioners Office) which means that your personal information is protected from unlawful processing and sharing without consent from the client. Please visit www.ico.org.uk/register if concerned.
As a Professional Therapist I will always offer you a friendly, non-judgmental, safe service that gives you a one to one confidential experience as unique individual and a space where you can talk freely and openly about what it is that has brought you to this point in your life.
Some of the reasons you may seek support...
- Things might not make much sense anymore, or out of control, this could be personally, within work, peer pressure, home life or just life in general.
- You may be suffering from Depression or Anxiety, not sleeping.
- Feeling you cant get past an illness, or the death of or someone close to you.
- Addictions/unhelpful coping mechanisms that you would like to stop.
- Relationship issues from the past or present.
These are just a few examples I have given, but talking on a level to someone who listens and understands you can be a welcome relief from the feelings of isolation or pain you can experience from struggling to cope alone.
Professionally I have worked within the Health and Social health care sector for the last 20yrs, starting as a support worker and progressing to a Professional body. All positions gave valuable experiences and have offered me a varied and satisfying working environment with different people, client groups and organizations offering different needs and services.
What Happens in Counselling
Initially, we can chat via email or by phone 07904 466607 briefly and then meet for an informal session, this offers us a way for us to see if we would like to work together before any counselling begins. We could then meet on a regular basis in a safe, non-judgmental environment where we can work together.
Your therapy could be short-term, or long-term, depending on your needs, each person is individual.
Discussion of fees, times and anything else you feel is important to you as a client and me as your therapist can be covered in the initial call.
I believe the power to change, or cope can always be possible with awareness and understanding from others, if you are prepared to put in the hard work and determination.
Change can offer you rewarding empowerment and help you regain control over your life again with whatever it is that holds you back or limits your choices.
By working together with a therapist you could move forward with more confidence in your abilities to achieve a happier balanced life and a new understanding of your self and others around you.
"When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves." V. FRANKL
Training, qualifications & experience
For individuals wishing for short term Counselling I offer Solution Focused brief Therapy this therapy by De Jong and Berg (1998) also report that SFBT accomplished 70% or better success rates for a wide range of problems, including parent-child conflict, depression, suicidal thoughts, sleep problems, eating disorders, marital/relationship difficulties, family violence, and self-esteem problems.
Problems do not stay static and are subject to change, SFBT can offer solutions to problems and offer positive outcomes.
My Underpinning training is 'Person Centered' which essentially means I do not direct you in anyway or tell you what to do, as we work together I will facilitate and enable you to chose a way that works for you as an individual. Together we can find the awareness and support to make any changes you require in your life for more balance.
I abide by the BACP code of ethics 2018 which is monitored, trusted and widely recognised in the counselling and psychotherapy world. It also means I like to work to the highest standard of practice with my clients. If anyone wishes to know any further information about the BACP code of ethics you an read the information available at the address below.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
