Tracy Ann Haynes MSc., Dip Couns., MBACP (Accredited)
Life brings some difficult challenges and can seem hard to bear at times. If you are feeling low and would like to talk to someone in a confidential and safe environment and would like to understand your feelings and explore issues in your life, then counselling may help you.
I am a fully qualified Accredited Person Centred Counsellor/Psychotherapist and an Accredited Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP); Accredited Certified EFT Practitioner (AAMET) and a member of Counselling North West.
My specialist area is Trauma including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). I have a Masters Degree in Psychological Trauma which has given me extensive knowledge in how the mind and body react to traumatic events and the recommended current treatments.
I offer an affordable, professional, friendly, confidential and non-judgemental service. I believe everyone is unique, and their experiences, and the way their experiences affect them, are unique. I work in a holistic manner, which means I take into account all aspects of people's needs including psychological, physical and social, and consider the whole being.
If you would like to embark on a journey of self discovery, in the aim of improving your quality of life and coping skills, then please contact me and we can work together to find the real you.

An Introduction to working with Children’s Loss & Grief
I have experience working with both men and women, having worked as a Counsellor for a Women’s Refuge; a male Prison and in private practice.
My work and training with the refuge has given me wide-ranging experience with women, focusing on giving them empowerment and confidence.
Working at the prison regularly involved individuals who self-harm and have suicidal feelings and I feel my skills in this area have developed considerably.
My specialist area is Psychological Trauma and how overwhelming extreme stress can affect the mind and body and our ability to cope. Traumatic events can be broad ranging, from accidents, crimes and natural disasters to combat, childhood abuse and abusive relationships, just to name a few. Essentially, it is an individuals subjective experience of an event that deems it traumatic. People can react differently to a similar event, as we are all unique and have had our own unique journey in life. My work and ongoing studying around trauma including PTSD has given me a deep understanding of how trauma manifests itself within us.
I work with people to help them get a deeper understanding of what is happening to them neurologically and physiologically. We work together to understand their experiences and what it is like for them. Often just having a clearer understanding of what is happening to us can make a big difference, as on our own our emotions often completely overwhelm us. Once we have a deep understanding of what is happening, we can then work together to find a healthier and more peaceful way forward.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
