"Until you make the unconscious CONSCIOUS, it will direct your life and you will call it fate"
Feeling a bit down lately and nothing seems to lift your spirits? It might be time to seek help from a qualified counsellor.
I help my clients develop positive attitudes towards life’s most complex and challenging circumstances. Contact me today on 07557125134 and let me help you find the best in yourself.
Hello I'm Tracey.I’m a BACP Accredited Integrative Counsellor and Clinical Supervisor.My core training was Petruska Clarkson's Relational Model. I integrate Person Centred Therapy, Psychodynamic, Jungian Theory, Transactional Analysis, and Gestalt Therapy. I also completed a BA (Hons) in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and have done further training in Transactional Analysis Theory (TA). I have also completed a Diploma in Supervision using TA Theory.
All my training has been very relational, and also means rather than being restricted to using one model, this enables me to integrate the appropriate therapeutic interventions based on the relationship, to suit your unique needs.I can help you to understand your problems and what’s keeping you stuck or caught in a repetitive cycle. I will listen to you, and offer a warm, caring, empathic and confidential space that gives you the chance to share your deepest fears.
Contacting a stranger to talk about your difficulties is a big step. I fully understand how challenging therapy can be. I will make every effort to help you feel comfortable, safe, respected, and listened to. Having had counselling many years ago, and working through the problems, I managed to regain a sense of balance and control.
I then became passionate about counselling and studied at Hull and Scarborough Universities, and graduated with a BA (Hons) in counselling. I continued with my training and then completed the accreditation process with the BACP, and gained their accreditation. After a few years of being in practice, I completed further studies, and qualified as a clinical supervisor to other counsellors. As you can see, I believe in counselling and think it has the potential to be a positive 'life changing' experience.
I think that people are just trying to make it through in life, and there are reasons people behave the way they do. I help people understand this. When sessions are coming to an end, my client’s feedback has been incredibly positive, and they have expressed how their new self-awareness has helped them feel more accepting of themselves, accepting of others, and has helped them to make changes.
Using counselling, CBT, and other techniques tailored to your particular needs, I will help you understand how your thoughts, and feelings, affect each other.
If you choose to work with me, you will gain a greater understanding of yourself and your choices and will feel better about yourself.
If you'd like to make an appointment either phone me on 07557125134 or email me to arrange a chat.If I am in a session and unavailable to answer, please leave a message and I will return your call as soon as I can.Recent Client Feedback:'Hi Tracey, just wanted to update you on long term progress and thank you again for helping me to carry on doing what I do! It really did make all the difference.' 'Hi Tracey, I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all of your help with everything you have done for me. I feel like a new person :) You have given me a life and inner peace I don't ever remember feeling. So thank you, I am forever in your debt.'
A Bit about Therapy Sessions with me
My training as an integrative therapist enables me to integrate the appropriate therapeutic interventions based on the relationship, to suit your unique needs. I have experience in working with issues including relationship issues, anxiety disorders, depression, low self esteem, and much more.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
CBT has been shown to be very effective in treating anxiety disorders, depression, low self esteem.
Using CBT techniques, I can help you to understand how your thoughts, feelings and behaviours affect each other. I can also help you to understand and challenge your negative and anxious thoughts. Using CBT techniques, I can also help you recognise, and change what safety behaviours you might be putting in place, such as avoidance.
The signs of depression can be complex and can vary from person to person.
Are your feelings interfering with your life and haven't gone away after a couple of weeks? Do they come back, over and over again, for a few days at a time? If so, it could be a sign that you’re depressed in the medical sense of the term. I can help you understand your triggers, which can be helpful when trying to manage how you feel.
Low Self Esteem
Sometimes a number of bad experiences can have a cumulative effect on how we think of ourselves; sometimes something that happened in the past can trigger low self-esteem in the present.
During our sessions, negative thinking patterns might emerge, which could highlight your self-concept.
They might be painful, but with compassion I can help you to work through past experiences. You may be able to lay some old ghosts to rest, forgive yourself and others, and be able to move on.
The past can’t be changed, but how you think about it, and how you approach the future can.
If you’re looking for quality therapy sessions with an accredited counsellor who cares, then you’ve come to the right place. I guide my clients every step of the way and implement various methods to help them develop new attitudes towards all of life’s most complex matters.

The content of the sessions is confidential to you and me. I will need to discuss my work with my counselling supervisor. I will use your first name but will not use any other identifying details about you. On very rare occasions, if we discover there is a need to communicate with other professionals, this will only happen by first seeking your permission and knowledge of what is going to be discussed.

I feel that it is extremely important that you can trust your supervisor. Many supervisees’, particularly in the early days, after their training, can be a bit fearful of supervision. I know myself, and from other counsellor’s experiences, that their past supervisory relationships has sometimes evoked memories of embarrassment, shame and judgement.
I work collaboratively with supervisee’s offering a safe space without fear of judgement. I believe supervision is a place for curiosity and reflection, whilst being supportive and challenging to promote supervisee’s awareness and understanding. This is to help ensure the effective development of their counselling practice, and to enable a safe, trusting relationship.
I enjoy sharing my experience, knowledge, and training with my supervisees’ and inevitably learning from them too. I believe supervision is a two way process, as you will bring your own experience, as well as your hopes and fears to enrich the supervisory relationship.
I can offer supervisee’s the benefit of my experience from my ongoing private practice, which includes extensive experience of managing risk in addition to my professional experience and continued professional development training.
In addition to my private practice, I have worked on a clinical oversight team for a counselling provider in Hull helping their counsellors manage clients difficult issues, which includes risk.
The supervision model I am currently practising is The Seven-Eyed Supervision model developed by Peter Hawkins and Robin Shohet.
I like The Seven Eyed model, as it focuses on the relationships between client, therapist, and supervisor and on the interplay between each relationship. The model is called “seven eyed” because it focuses on seven distinct aspects of the therapeutic process. By looking through each ‘eye’ it is possible to see a different side of the whole of your supervision session. I also incorporate aspects of Page and Wosket’s "Cyclical model".
