As a specialist child therapist, I work with children of all ages to help them navigate the complexities of life. My experience as a psychotherapist has included working with some of the most challenging cases. I am proud to have trained at the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education (CCPE) and achieved a first class distinction in my Master's degree, specialising in experiential work with children and adolescents.

Children and adolescents often struggle to articulate their emotions. They may feel powerless in the face of life's transitions, such as divorce, bereavement, changing schools, or simply managing difficult feelings like anger and anxiety. Through my work, I strive to provide a safe and supportive environment for young people to explore and express their emotions.

Rather than simply asking "How do you feel?", I prefer to invite my clients to "show me how you feel" through play and experiential therapy. This approach allows them to organize their thoughts and feelings in a more meaningful way, while creating a safe and supportive environment for them to express themselves and heal.


 Children's issues I work with include:-

  • Continuing somatic complaints, such as frequent headaches,  stomach pains or stuttering

  • Anxiety at school or with exams. Panic attacks or OCD

  • Taking on too much emotional responsibility, such as regularly trying to appease an anxious or depressed or addicted parent

  • Bullying others or being bullied

  • Unpredictable mood swings, depression or aggression

  • Self-harm and suicide attempts, particularly in teenagers

  • Substance abuse (alcohol and drugs)

  • ADHD or ASD

  • Eating disorders, such as bulimia, anorexia or overeating

  • Problems making and keeping healthy friendships

  • Bereavement or preparation to loose someone close

  • Presenting behavioural issues that are difficult to manage by the parent


Tracey supervises many therapists across the UK and takes referrals from UK agencies. She also works closely with  CAMHS, adoption agencies and services within the NHS .

The practice also has three very important members of staff: Rocket (the dog), Asoka, and Woody (the cats). These trained therapy animals have been shown to have a plethora of benefits in therapy sessions, such as reducing symptoms of depression and anxiety, as well as helping children on the autistic spectrum and those with ADHD behaviors. However, it is important to use therapy animals sensibly and appropriately, as some people may not like them or may have allergies.
