Are you puzzled why 'things' are not working out for you ? Do you feel 'stressed all the time ? Are you curious about why you are the person you are ? Why you live the life you do ? Is there a pattern you recognise about yourself, that you 'don't get' but seems unchangeable? Do you feel 'stuck' and unable to live the life you want? Does that desire to live the best life you can seem limited by illness or a potential or actual genetic blue print that isn't changeable ? If you have any of these thoughts or similar, then I can help you to find your answers. I have energy, experience, resources and commitment for this work with you.

Hi, I’m Tracey, I specialise in psychological assessment and therapy for women. Are you feeling overwhelmed? Are you struggling with anxiety, depression, relationships, pregnancy and motherhood, perimenopause/menopause, bereavements, traumas? As women, there can be many unique challenges and life transitions to face. Having a safe space to reflect on what's happening for you, to connect with the emotional impacts, and discover how you can learn to adapt is vital. It lets you build your sense of strength and resilience and ultimately, it encourages you to heal and continue to grow despite what life has thrown your way.

If you are feeling like things are getting you down and preventing you leading your life the way you would like to, perhaps you may feel anxious or depressed and feel you have lost your self-esteem and belief in yourself, this could be through difficult life events like stress, relationship, bereavement or something that happened to you in the past. Taking back control of your life and living the way you want to can be helped with therapy to gain a more positive happier future.

I understand that we can all encounter times when life feels particularly hard and overwhelming. Perhaps you’re feeling the impact of past hurts, trauma or unresolved issues.

I am open to exploring how we can work together and reassure you.

Sometimes the challenges we face in life can be overwhelming. Left feeling difficult emotions, anger, grief or depression for example it can be a struggle to move forward and really impact our daily life. It might be one event, or there maybe many things or relationships in your life, past or present which you are struggling to come to terms with and want time to explore. It's not always easy to talk to the people around you, maybe you feel they won't understand, that they won't be interested, or maybe that they are part of the problem.

To give someone the space to find out what is going on for them, at their own pace, I believe to be very empowering. I am warm, friendly and empathic and have a real passion for helping people. Contacting me via email is usually the best option, as I can not always take calls due to being in client sessions. I respond to emails usually the same day.

I have worked with people who have felt very isolated by their own thoughts, felt intense shame, and struggled to cope with overwhelming feelings. Usually they have not felt able to talk to those around them for fear of judgment, embarrassment or rejection.

Life can be hard at times. We can experience loss, changes in our health, family circumstances or work life. Maybe our relationships are not fulfilling our needs and we do not know how to change things. At times, we don’t feel good about ourselves, we lose confidence in our ability to cope with life or maybe we feel impacted by past experiences or held back through feelings of anger, shame or guilt. Sometimes we don’t know what’s wrong, but we just know something isn’t right. I can help you explore what is going on for you by giving you a supportive space to talk and be heard.

At times in our lives we can all find things challenging. Sometimes we need a time and space to reflect, talk and be heard. We often need to find new ways of thinking and feeling, to gain new perspectives and move forward... Counselling is a way for us to do this. It provides a chance for us to address these difficulties, to work on ourselves, to explore our lives and to make them better. It is an important time in our busy lives when we can help ourselves, to better understand our challenges, and to learn about what we think and feel. From this we can enhance our experiences and make positive changes.

Female Counsellors

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
