" When I first met with Tracie I was deeply troubled and struggling with reasons as to why I needed to be alive. I had experienced some therapy prior to our initial encounter but progress had been very slow. It can appear to be trite when one refers to someone who has 'saved your life' but with Tracie this statement rings true with me. Tracie is extremely caring, honest and utterly professional. She challenges you to look at yourself in a completely different way - helping you to show compassion towards yourself. Her approach leads you to understand that you can empower yourself to become better at identifying triggers and responding pro-actively. It is a pleasure to recommend Tracie should you be in need."
" I was referred to Tracie when I was probably at the lowest point in my life and could not see any way that things would improve. Tracie listened, put me at ease and asked questions in such a way that I felt very comfortable. She is an amazing therapist and over the time I spent with her she made me realise so many things that I would never have recognised on my own. Some of these things I had been carrying around for years and I have now been able to let go of them and feel so much better for it. Tracie is kind, patient, understanding and is very easy to confide in. She gave me the 'tools' I need to deal with things as they arise and to recognise why I behave as I do in certain situations. Life is now much calmer and much happier and I have the confidence to move on and take responsibility for myself. It was not an easy path at the time but the benefits make it all worthwhile."
"Before coming to see Tracie I was feeling very upset and distressed about what was happening. People had suggested CBT as a treatment and after emailing Tracie and getting such a positive response, I felt encouraged. Over the course of treatment, Tracie used different techniques every week which helped me but also challenged me to overcome my problems. I felt as though she understood what I was talking about even if I thought I sounded mad. Using the tips she has given me, I am now a happier and more confident person. I can't begin to tell you how grateful I am for Tracie to have been so patient, caring and helpful."
"In a word, Tracie is exceptional. If your idea of therapy is lying on the couch, rambling to a grey haired Psychiatrist, that is not Tracie.Tracie will take you on an emotional roller-coaster on your quest for the answers, and you will find them. It will not be an easy journey. You will laugh. You will cry. You will feel like giving up. But Tracie has an amazing ability to find the way and you will arrive. Shaken and almost certainly stirred, but empowered and able to face the future."
"Suffering from a combination of depression and anxiety the hardest part of my treatment was picking up the phone and calling Tracie. At the time I didn't know what was wrong with me or what I should do, I was experiencing a high level of distress and I just didn't know where to start. Tracie assured me she could help and we begun a 10 week journey to uncover the deeply hidden reasons why I was feeling the way I was. By using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Tracie gave me the knowledge and tools to be able to rid myself of the depression and drastically reduce my level of anxiety during and following my treatment. It was an extremely effective and pro-active therapy that I will continue to use to support me on a daily basis."
