My name is Tricia and I would like to give you a brief history of my background as a counsellor and the work that I do. I have worked for well established counselling services such as Relate, counselling young people in schools and Trafford Primary Care Trust, counselling in Loss and Bereavement.

I piloted a scheme in four hostels for the homeless in Manchester working with young people; male and female and often refugees, at times working through an interpreter. I ran this scheme single-handed and very successfully for Bess Counselling. I also worked for Little Hulton Women and Family Centre counselling clients for various issues up to the age of 75.

Before I had finished my training to become a therapist I had a vision and that was to open a centre that could offer different types of therapy bringing together a number of professionals in their chosen field. The therapists that I have working along side me were hand picked for their expertise, professionalism and dedication. At Altrincham Counselling Centre we work with a large client base generated from the local doctor’s surgeries, and by word of mouth.

The centre also provides Hypnotherapy, Reiki and Indian Head Massage. I trained in Person Centred Therapy but work in a more integrated way using the tools best suited to the client’s individual needs. I currently have the following qualifications:

  • Advanced Diploma in Counselling
  • Certificate in Counselling
  • Introduction to Counselling
  • Certificate in Loss and Bereavement Counselling
  • Certificate in Young Person’s Counselling
  • Certificate in Child Protection Level One
  • Certificate in Domestic Violence/ Abuse Awareness and Safety
  • Certificate in Sexuality
  • Certificate in Solution Focus Therapy

I am a member of the BACP and abide by their code of ethics. I undertake regular training to increase my knowledge and enhance my practice.  Twice a year I am privileged to work in the world famous retreat, Chiva-Som providing wellness coaching.
