My name is Tracy Lowe. I have been working as a counsellor, supervisor and trainer for over 30 years.
I trust wholeheartedly that for each of us ‘the wisdom is within’. I believe that what helps is not the direction of the counsellor for the client, but the counsellor’s willingness and ability to provide an environment without threat or judgement, and which is accepting and deeply respecting of another’s way of being.
To be Person Centred is to strive to understand all that a person is and brings, that they might understand themselves. I have faith in the power of the therapeutic alliance and the quality of that relationship and an unwavering belief in the client’s worth and ability to find their own way given the right conditions to do so.
I work as a private counsellor with individuals, couples and families and also undertake freelance counselling work for a number of commercial and charitable organisations.
I offer supervision to both experienced and newly qualified counsellors as well as providing supervision to groups.
In 2015 I realised a long term aspiration and trained as an Animal Assisted Therapy practitioner. I bought and trained two therapy dogs who work with me with schools groups and with individuals, couples and families within my own counselling practice.
I hold senior accredited status with BACP which means that I adhere to the BACP ethical framework, carry appropriate insurance, am clinically supervised and undertake a minimum of 30 hours continuing professional development (CPD) each year.
My practice is based near Burnley, Lancashire.
