About me

Hello, I’m Tracy and I am a qualified integrative counsellor, based in the Kingswinford area. I am also a registered nurse with over thirty years experience of working in the NHS in various nursing roles. I have a great deal of life experience and over the years have worked successfully with people from all walks of life during my career, fostering trusted relationships.

At times, life can feel confusing to all of us; we can feel stuck and unable to see a way forward. In modern society and particularly in the present climate, anxiety and depression can be very common and it can feel quite overwhelming in trying to deal with all of the emotions and feelings that we may experience. Counselling can help to give a different perspective and a clearer understanding of our issues.

I offer a safe, non-judgmental and confidential space in a one-to-one setting, face-to-face, with appropriate current distancing/safety measures, for over 16s, in which to explore these feelings and emotions and try to make sense of them. The aim is to help and enable the individual to come to terms with their issues and find a way forward.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
