About me

Hi there,

My name is Tracy and I am an experienced integrative psychotherapist, counsellor, virtual therapist and clinical supervisor with over 10 years experience of working with both children, young people and adults. I can offer both short term and long term therapy and this can be delivered in a number of ways to best suit your needs. 

Reaching out for support can feel like a big step and it is not always easy to know where to start, but the fact that you are taking the time to do this for yourself is a big step in itself.

How can therapy help?

I can offer you a non-judgemental, safe and confidential space to explore the challenges you may be facing in your life, that are having an impact on your sense of well-being, and that could be getting in the way of you living your life the way that you want to and deserve to.

My approach

As an integrative therapist I can work flexibly with you and can draw from different therapeutic approaches to help such as person-centred, psychodynamic, CBT,  Gestalt, transactional analysis, VR and narrative therapy.  I am also trained in laughter facilitation.

Difficulties I work with include anxiety disorders, depression, stress management, sleep difficulties, low self-esteem, body image, trauma, abuse, bereavement and loss, gender identity and sexuality and have vast experience of identifying and managing risk with both children, young people and adults. 

As a low intensity cognitive behavioural therapist (CBT) working with children, young people and adults experiencing anxiety and or depression I can offer self-help interventions that can help you to make the connection between the way you think about things and act to help you move forward and reach your goals. 

Virtual therapy (VR) can offer you the opportunity to explore things more creatively using both imagery and symbols, which can bring a greater understanding if this approach is a better fit for you. 

As a relational supervisor I can offer both face to face and remote supervision and have experience of delivering both 1-1 case management supervision, clinical skills group supervision and an integrative supervision approach to best suit your needs. (see my supervision profile for more information)

Experience

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accredited register membership
