My name is Tricia and I would like to give you a brief history of my background as a counsellor and the work that I do. Over the last 13 years as a counsellor, I have been privileged to work with all age groups, both privately and for well established counselling services such as Relate, counselling young people in schools and Trafford Primary Care Trust, counselling in Loss and Bereavement.
I piloted a scheme in four hostels for the homeless in Manchester working with young people; male and female and often refugees, at times working through an interpreter. I ran this scheme single-handed and very successfully for Bess Counselling. I also worked for Little Hulton Women and Family Centre counselling clients for various issues up to the age of 93.
I currently have the following qualifications:
- Advanced Diploma in Counselling
- Certificate in Counselling
- Introduction to Counselling
- Certificate in Loss and Bereavement Counselling
- Certificate in Young Person’s Counselling
- Certificate in Child Protection Level One
- Certificate in Domestic Violence/ Abuse Awareness and Safety
- Certificate in Sexuality
- Certificate in Solution Focus Therapy
- Certificate in Life Coaching
I am a member of the BACP and abide by their code of ethics
I offer supervision to other therapists
As an integrative therapist, I do not believe that one size fits all. Often when clients are facing difficulties in their lives, they can lose sight of their own inner resources. I tailor therapy to the individual needs of the client. My role is to help each client make sense of why they feel the way they do, we look at patterns of behaviour and thought processes to see if they are helping or simply getting in the way.
Who I work with
I offer one to one sessions, couples / family therapy, young persons. I also work in schools to provide counselling to young people and teachers.
I offer a wide range of therapy that will help to deal with a number of issues including;
Abortion, Abuse, Addiction(s), Anger Management, Anxiety, Bereavement, Bullying, Child Related Issues, Depression, Eating Disorders, Low Self-Confidence, Low Self-Esteem, Marriage/Couples Counselling, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Personality Disorders, Phobias, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Postnatal Depression, Relationship Issues, Personal Issues, Sexuality, Stress, Trauma, Work Related Issues.
I undertake regular training to increase my knowledge and enhance my practice. Twice a year I am privileged to work in the world famous retreat, Chiva-Som, providing therapy and mindfulness sessions to individuals from all over the world, across many different cultures.
