Counselling TestimonialsInner Wisdom Expressive Arts and Counselling
I have worked with Tracey, both online and at her office space. I find our focusing and expressive arts sessions to be extremely interesting and they always create surprising insights into areas of my life where I feel stuck and unproductive. Tracey is committed and very supportive. She is intuitive and flexible in whatever form our sessions take, creating it so it really works for me. I highly recommend her gentle approach when you are ready to move forward in your life.
I have been working with Tracey for over a year now. Tracey works in a very intuitive way. I always felt very safe with her and in a warm and loving place. She really helped me dive deeper into topics that I had explored years ago through talk therapy, but arts therapy provided a completely different approach that really gets to the root of the issue. I found knowledge in my intuition and in my subconscious. I worked with Tracey on the things that were holding me back. Some old issues came up and we also discovered some new ones that needed healing. This was exciting work and helped me on a creative level. Tracey was great at guiding me into my unconscious where I was able to connect to my inner child in a very playful, yet deep way. In the end, I found this to be as effective as talk therapy if not more and unlike talk therapy (which can make one anxious), this is more fun and exploratory.
Since I lived far away from Tracey, she suggested we do online counselling using Zoom. At first I was hesitant whether it would work, but I gave it a try and I was excited to find out that I felt close to Tracey; it was like being in the same room. I didn’t miss anything! Also this was my first experience with arts therapy and at first, I was worried whether I would be good at drawing, but in the end, it didn’t matter. Art is a product of my experience in the therapy and although I was quite proud of the works I created, I came to realize that technical proficiency wasn’t of importance. What a nice surprise! I have really enjoyed my sessions with Tracey and will continue working on myself with her help and guidance.
Tracey, thank you. Thank you for going out of your way, helping after hours and motivating me to persevere. Thank you for actually making me feel special, with individual needs instead of making me feel like another head in the herd. You broke through my own personal bubble, allowing me to open up as you led me to resources that were a perfect fit for me. That is no small achievement. I am writing you because I truly, with all sincerity, appreciate what you have done for me. By treating me with care and consideration, you have inspired and helped me to find my own direction and purpose. For the first time, I can remember a future that is filled with possibilities and excitement.
My sessions with Tracey have been amazing. It has helped me take it to the next level. I’ve learned to breathe and stay calm in challenging situations and it has helped me overall in my role as a mother and also just in general when dealing with every day moments. I am a much calmer person now than just a few months ago.
The career counselling role for our office is an extremely challenging one, as we expect our counsellors to be well rounded in knowledge base – from career planning, to work search, to life skills. Tracey was highly adaptive to the needs of our clients. I was most impressed with her ability to adapt to our fast paced environment. Easy going and pleasant in disposition, she was ablet o handle a demanding workload due to high volume of clients. Tracey works hard to meet the needs of her clients, the community and our team.
