Tracey Hartshorn Therapy

Be Proud ~ Be True ~ Be You!

Services Offered

I enable and support my clients to lead the process as my work is underpinned by a strong belief that we all hold our own answers: we may just need help finding them.

I offer a range of services for private clients:

  • Short-term counselling for individuals
  • Long-term therapy for individuals
  • Mental Health consultations

I am trained to work with any presenting issue and commonly work with:

  • Anxiety and Fearfulness
  • Depression and Sadness
  • Dealing with sudden change such as bereavement, redundancy and divorce/relationship difficulties
  • Survivors of trauma and abuse
  • Gender Issues and Stereotypes
  • Loneliness
  • Lack of Motivation, Low Energy, Resilience
  • Relationship difficulties

I have a particular interest in narrative therapy and the use of story to help people describe their experiences, finding this to be particularly useful for working with survivors of trauma and abuse as it provides a gentle and safe way to express deeper emotions.

I also work with a concept known as Polyvagal Theory which encourages the use of body work and connecting with our physical self to promote psychological healing. This work can be very helpful for recovery from trauma and anxiety.

Mental Health Consulation

This service is for anyone who is concerned about the psychological health of someone known to you. This could be a family member, a friend, or a colleague who is showing behaviours which cause you concern. The aim of this service is to help you to better support them and to enable them to access the help they need. This can be a one-off consultation or short term brief support.

Medical Insurance and EAP Funded Work

I am approved by the Private Practice Register and offer therapy and counselling via specified Employee Assistance Programmes (EAPs) and certain Medical Insurance Plans. If you would like to access therapy via an EAP or insurance plan please talk to your provider in the first instance stating that you have a preferred therapist you would like to work with.

By providing my name and contact details the scheme administrator will check if I am on their approved list and contact me directly to agree the work and payment arrangements. This can often mean you will be able to commence therapy more quickly. Once approved, all payments are direct between the scheme provider and myself with no financial outlay for you.

Coaching Interventions

I am a qualified and experienced developmental coach offering an alternative approach to exploring personal change which is helpful for those wanting to focus on the future and make positive lasting changes to life and work.

Coaching is a different approach which requires time in session with the client and also includes between session work. Please ask for further details if you are interested in a coaching approach or check out my coaching website at
