Feedback testimony for Tracy Simpson MBACP. I wish to provide feedback from my counselling sessions with Tracy Simpson. I was referred to Tracy for a number of counselling sessions following a driving incident, months earlier. I had initially been signposted to a therapist who after a few appointments, I did not feel comfortable seeing. Based on the previous professional, I was apprehensive and sceptical of having a similar experience, when referred to Tracy Simpson. Upon arrival to my first appointment and continuation throughout I was made to feel at ease. Tracy has a relaxed and non threatening manner, which allowed me to feel comfortable in her company. Tracy allowed me to voice my thoughts and feelings in a safe environment, without ever fearing of being judged. In conversation, Tracy was able to summarise, offer viewpoint and help me make sense of my concerns. I have found that the services from Tracy Simpson to be valuable in helping me move forward. I would highly recommend the counselling and support from Tracy.

What is Counselling?

  • Counselling is a therapy which involves talking confidentially with a trained counsellor in a safe space about anything that is causing you anxiety and upset.
  • A counsellor is trained to listen and use different therapeutic approaches to help you find ways to deal with what’s bothering you or causing you emotional upset.
  • During a counselling session, you can explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours to help understand what’s troubling you.
  • A therapist’s job is to help you recognise where the problems lie and find a solution rather than to give an opinion or advice. Working together, a counsellor can help you to make effective changes to your life or to come to terms with your concerns.

How much does counselling cost in the UK?

  • The cost of counselling is between £40 and £100 per hour in the UK and can depend on experience, location and the type of therapy offered. Some counsellors offer concessions.
  • Online counselling therapy may be cheaper than face-to-face.
  • Free or reduced-cost counselling might be available through the NHS or several charities, but there could be a long waiting list.
  • Your Employer may offer free counselling through ‘employee assistance programs’ so check with them.

Why have counselling therapy, do I need it?

Counselling gives you a safe space to talk about anything worrying you. A counsellor can support you emotionally, help manage adverse thoughts and feelings and develop coping skills.

What’s the difference between a counsellor and a therapist?

A counsellor tends to focus on specific issues with short-term, solution-focused goals, whereas a therapist treats a greater range of mental health conditions using evidence-based approaches.
