Hello and a warm welcome to my website. My name is Tracy Wilford. I have been practising as a counsellor in Gloucestershire since 2014. I am an Accredited Registrant of the National Counselling Society and work in accordance with their Code of Ethical Practice.
During the week I work from a private practice in Cassin Drive, Cheltenham, within easy access from Gloucester city centre, Brockworth, Churchdown, Hucclecote, Abbeydale and Abbeymead. A free car park is available.
I also work out of Lifeways Complementary Health Clinic in Stratford-upon-Avon on a Saturday.
I trained as an integrative counsellor and this means I draw upon the tools and techniques at the heart of the cognitive behavioural and person-centred theoretical models in my counselling practice.
I aim to provide a safe, quiet space and to accept my clients whole-heartedly, with compassion and respect.
If you are an adult looking for someone independent to talk with and to listen to you, to help you understand your thoughts and feelings, please contact me.
I have experience of supporting individuals presenting with a range of issues, e.g. stress, depression, anxiety, bereavement, loss, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, loneliness, and illness.
I qualified as a Counsellor in November 2015 and have been volunteering at a Gloucestershire-based counselling agency since 2014. I am trained in Person Centred and Cognitive Behavioural Therapies. therapy
I am currently studying a CPCAB Level 5 Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling.
