Tracy Cooper


We think we listen, but very rarely do we listen with real understanding, true empathy. Yet [active] listening, of this very special kind, is one of the most potent forces for change that I know.
– Carl Rogers

Counselling Services

I am an empathic, encouraging and relational therapist. I will work with you to identify your goals for change. I am flexible in my approach which is individualized for each client depending on your current needs.

I collaboratively set goals, explore emotions and behavioral patterns. I work to make lasting improvements to relationships and communication styles.

Together we will uncover your unique strengths.

I believe we all have the recipe for a fulfilling life inside us all. we sometimes just need a person to walk alongside us for while. I am empathetic and non judgmental. I have a gentle curiosity in my clients and their lived experiences. I work with you to discover the strengths that may just need to be discovered.

In a world where you can be anything. Be kind


Counselling Approach

I work from a person-centered perspective, believing that people given the right circumstances will achieve their goals.

I draw from the following approaches:

  • Person/Client Centered Therapy
  • Solution Focused Therapy
  • Behaviour Therapy
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Mindfulness Techniques


About me…

I am passionate about empowering you to uncover and recover your strengths, to find strategies and solutions for managing and resolving any imbalances in your life.

Prior to my qualification as a Counsellor, I worked in sales teams and as a trainer for an IT company. It was there that I realised how much I loved working alongside people. While I was studying, I worked in mental health, facilitating change for the people I supported.

My love of people and viewing the change they can make in their lives reinforced and strengthened my decision to be a Counsellor.
