About me


I offer a friendly, warm, non-judgmental, safe and confidential space where you can explore what is right for you at your own pace. I am down to earth and have many years experience working as a counsellor within a number of specialist counselling agencies; the NHS and private practice.

People find the courage to see a counsellor because they are wanting change; which can be a huge and frightening decision!

People may want help with varied issues including specific anxieties; abuse issues, generalised anxiety; improving self esteem, assertiveness; letting go of past issues, anger problems; unhelpful/negative thinking; relationship problems, increasing confidence, depression, or developing coping mechanisms.

All of us find ways to cope with life and situations; and we do the best we can at the time with the resources that are available to us.  As we move on through life; some coping techniques become unhelpful and may even cause distress.

Counselling can enable you to explore feelings, thoughts and behaviours, with a skilled professional who will allow you to go at your pace without judging you. I will respect your choices and support you to reach the changes you want.

My approach of therapy is integrative which means I use a combination of approaches and skills; as experience has taught me that different things work for different people! 

Depending on what you are experiencing we may work on thoughts and beliefs; feelings or behaviours. It will depend on what you want to change or explore in the counselling work.

As well as working as a counsellor, I am also a trained hypnotherapist.

I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and psychotherapy and work within their code of ethics and practice.

As people experience different issues and levels of distress; and I offer short and long term therapy to suit individual needs.

Training, qualifications & experience

BA hons (Social Welfare/Psychology)
Advanced Diploma Counselling/Group work

My counselling experience began when I was training as a counsellor; working part time within 2 specialist counselling agencies that provided counselling for people who had experienced sexual or domestic abuse either in the past or recently.  Over the last 20 years I have consistently provided counselling for people who have experienced sexual; domestic and psychological abuse; and specialise working with these issues and related trauma.

From 2004 to 2015 I worked within a large GP practice providing counselling for people presenting a range of issues including: anxiety; depression; negative thinking, anger issues; trauma; loss; bereavement; self harm; low self esteem; confidence issues; eating disorders and health issues.

Like many counsellor's my counselling career has consisted of working part time in numerous places; which has enabled me to gain a wide range of invaluable experience over the last 20 years.  I have worked within the voluntary sector, NHS and in private practice, and have helped people from all walks of life and social backgrounds. I continue to enjoy and feel passionate about the work I do.

Within my private therapy practice I offer counselling, and hypnotherapy.

I also offer and provide clinical supervision to counselling students and qualified counselling practitioners.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

" I have struggled with anxiety for most of my adult life.  It has affected my confidence and my self esteem.  I overanalysed everything and always had this tightness in my chest and stomach. I decided to start counselling because I was getting frightened to go out.  The fear has gone and I am getting on with my life"  (P.B)

" I started counselling because I had been abused as a child.  At 43 years old I was still being affected.  Anxiety; low mood; flashbacks; trust issues and much more. I knew that I needed help but was terrified. I have put the past to rest and feel in control of me and my life. Thanks Tracy (Christine)

"Feeling low and anxious was exhausting me. I feel so much better" (John)

" My anger was pushing away the people I cared about and I felt so guilty but didn't know how to change"  (k.T)

"I have gained so much from therapy sessions. I am happier in my relationship and feel better about who I am"  (Peter)

"I have seen Tracy for 12 appointments and feel totally different. More in control; calmer and no anxiety. (J.B)
