Hi, I’m Tracy

Meet Our Coach – Tracy

Tracy, the Founder of the CTS, is a passionate, focused and determined SEMH Educational Consultant, Coach, and Trainer – with nearly two decades of experience in supporting children, families, and professionals.  Tracy has had the privilege of working in many education sectors, including mainstream schools, Cuckmere House Alternative Provision, Cuckmere House School, Cuckmere House Teaching School, St Richard’s Catholic College National Teaching School, East Sussex Looked After Children Services, and Inclusion, Special Educational Needs and Disability Services.

Tracy has 2 children, who are the driving force of positive change for this Service. They help shape; how resources are designed, how training is developed – or how therapeutic sessions are run. When not working, Tracy can be found in the gym, a yin yoga class, – or spending quality time with her family and friends.

What can Tracy Offer?

Coaching sessions are aimed at clients who are unable to talk about their feelings – either because they don’t want to, it’s too overwhelming, or because they don’t have the skills (yet) to understand them.  They are run by Tracy, a very experienced neuro-diverse/typical holistic coach, who works on a bottom-up approach of releasing unprocessed emotions, that are held in the body.

Tracy applies a body-to-mind approach to help the client let go of unprocessed negative emotions and regulate their internal nervous system. She is a trained practitioner in Wingwave Coaching (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Emotional Freedom Technique (Tapping), the Bounce Approach (Polyvagal Theory), Bilateral Integration Techniques, Drawing & Talking, Mindfulness, Meditation, and Neutral Space Relaxation (Bodywork Relaxation).  Using these techniques and approaches in many of her sessions.

Not only do the clients feel empowered by releasing repressed emotional overwhelm – they are also given access to bespoke videos, so that they can use these techniques anytime they need to.

Tracy Specialises In Working With:

  • Clients that don’t want to talk about it – they just want their emotional overwhelm to go away
  • Clients that have tried other approaches and they didn’t work
  • Neuro-diverse clients that enjoy the science behind releasing overwhelm
  • Clients that don’t have the emotional literacy skills to manage emotional overwhelm

What others say

“My son had individual sessions to support him with resilience, self esteem, and emotional regulation. He really benefitted from the sessions and Tracy sent ideas to do at home too.”

I had some major issues that I decided I needed to address, but I didn’t know who to turn to. I’ve had countless counselling sessions when I was at school, private counselling sessions too however, nothing had really seemed to help. This was before I met Tracy, and to say I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for her, would be an understatement.

The sessions I had helped to address the root of the problems I was having, which was a real eye opener. I went to Tracy with a list of things I felt insecure about and that were causing me sleepless nights and severe anxiety, creating life blocks as such. Tracy helped me to understand what the root problems really were, that stemmed back way before the list I went with. It was so eye opening and at times, confusing how we got to the roots of the issues to identify my triggers, but it has been one of the most interesting experiences in my life. After addressing the triggers, I would go away after every session with homework and tasks to do to make progress on dealing with the triggers.

Tracy is a truly remarkable and passionate lady and I will forever be grateful that I was told to reach out to her for the help I wanted, not realising at the time how much my life would be changed.”

Hi, I’m Louise

Meet Our Therapist – Louise

Louise is a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist with over 20 years  experience of working in a range of mental health settings within the NHS and also in various not-for-profit organisations.  She completed her Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) training 12 years ago and currently works as a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist in the NHS.

Louise has worked with a range of people, including children and young people, families, older age adults, and those with new difficulties as well as those with more severe and enduring challenges.

She is passionate about adapting evidence based therapy to help each client achieve their individual goals, in a way that feels helpful to them at that point in time. Louise is aware that this can be a really challenging process and believes that a caring, understanding therapeutic relationship is essential to this.

What can Louise Offer?

Louise can offer cognitive behavioural therapy, a talking therapy that can help the client make sense of overwhelming problems by breaking them down into smaller parts.  It is based on the idea that thoughts, feelings, what we do, and how our bodies feel, are all connected. If we change one of these we can alter all the others.

When we’re low or upset, or worried we often fall into patterns of thinking and behaving which can maintain and even worsen how we feel . CBT works to help us notice and change problematic thinking styles or behaviour patterns so we can feel better.

CBT is a collaborative therapy – it’s not something that is done to someone, but rather it’s a way of working together with a CBT therapist on mutually agreed goals that feel achievable and helpful to that individual.
