Having enjoyed my 15 years in a varied HR career, I always knew that one day I would eventually move into the world of mental health. Counselling has always interested me from very early on, but I never quite felt like it was the right time to train.
Fast forward four and a half years of training, whereby I can finally say I am a trained counsellor! The journey hasn’t always been easy, with moments of whether I’m good enough, coupled with thoughts of how on earth can an over 50-year-old possibly enter into the higher education arena. Well, here I am, passionate as ever about mental health, with an ever-growing client list, operating from a purpose-built therapy room.
I feel proud and privileged to be developing my own private practice – Tracy Rae Counselling. The foundation of which will be based on compassion, authenticity and acceptance. I’m excited to be able to follow my heart and walk alongside those who find themselves entering therapy.
