About me and my therapy practice

Delivery of sessions: This is mainly using zoom video calls, phone calls or email exchanges. My Values: I work on the basic assumption, that the relationship between us, is the most important thing to get right. This is why I provide a free 30min phone consultation before committing to booking actual sessions. If couples want individual time, I can provide each of you 15mins each. This gives you the opportunity to get a feel for me and how I work.

How can I help? Essentially I can help you by providing a safe space, where you can tell your story and share your fears, express your worries and explore your difficulties. I can help you to understand what is happening, by working through it together. I can help you to understand yourself better; so you can manage your problems and challenges going forward. I can help you explore your experiences and make sense of them; so you are able to then be more proactive. I have experience with a range of issues, but have additional interests looking at loss, bereavement and relationship issues. 

Benefits of online counselling: Counselling is more achievable for people with a busy schedule. This can be an excellent way for anyone with physical disabilities (acute or chronic) to access counselling more easily, as this can be done from the comfort of your home or office. Working online may not be appropriate for you if you are in a crisis or feeling actively suicidal. If you are feeling in need of immediate support now, then please contact the Samaritans: 116 123.

Individual fees are £38 and Couples fees are £50 per session. For more information about me, my services and what I can offer you. please visit my website: https://tracyscounsellingservice.co.uk

Practice description

I can work using a range of online methods and can blend these where needed; for example, moving to email counselling when it is school holidays and when setting aside a counselling hour, at the times I work, feels too difficult. I am also happy to do telephone counselling, if you prefer to be active during sessions, you can then walk and talk if that feels appropriate. 

In Couples work; as the counsellor, I can facilitate discussion and support you to talk to each other about the stuff that matters, with the aim of working towards a healthy, fulfilling relationship that is meeting both of your unique needs and preferences. This work can feel quite different from individual counselling which is often more detailed and focused on you, as opposed to the focus on communication and the relationship.

Couples Counselling is an active approach, where work on the relationship is needed in between sessions. So from the start I will be encouraging you to begin working hard for each other and for yourself. 

My first session

After the free initial consultation, you will be asked to complete some initial forms and will be provided with a client agreement to review and agree, before we start actively working online. I ask clients to send personal information via secure email to support privacy and confidentiality. This is through ProtonMail: tracys.cs@protonmail.com
