Psychodynamic Counsellor and Couple Therapist

Tracey is an highly experienced psychodynamic counsellor and couple therapist and has been working at the Turner Centre for several years. She carries a vast amount of experience working with individuals who feel lost, hopeless or stuck or find themselves repeating the same old unhelpful or destructive relationship patterns.
She is a warm and compassionate therapist who is known for her ability to provide a safe, supportive and nurturing space enabling the exploration and processing of difficult and confusing feelings bringing insight and clarity. Working at a pace which feels right for each individual and enabling valuable emotional connections between the past and present whilst developing greater understanding and self-awareness.

Tracey’s work with couples includes working with communication difficulties to understand why communication may be unhelpful and repetitive often seemingly going round in circles; with attachment issues where she supports couples to begin to make sense of and identify painful attachments from the past which may be re-enacted in the present and to support couples in beginning to listen to each other with curiosity and empathy rather than defensiveness and anger.

Prior to her counsellor training Tracey worked extensively supporting young people, children and their families in primary education for several years which was the foundation for her more recent work with Kids Inspire where she has worked with a individuals both parents and young people struggling with an array of emotional and psychological difficulties. She has a great deal of experience with conditions such as ADHD in both young people and adults.

Tracey is drawn to the outdoors and is developing a new area of her therapy practice to ‘Walking and Talking’. It allows the process of therapy to be taken outdoors and can be particularly helpful for those who prefer the movement, task aspect and connecting to the outdoors while reducing a sense of intensity in sitting face to face which may be difficult for some. She has already started to introduce this to her practice for those who are also drawn to this way of being in therapy.

Tracey holds a Professional Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling and has undertaken additional training in Couples Therapy. She has attended various additional continuing professional development trainings which include working with baby loss.
