Tracy Flux

Counselling gives people a chance to talk in confidence to a trained professional about problems or issues that are causing them concern or distress

 

I have always wanted to make a difference, and I am caring therapist with experience of understanding difference and diversity.  I have experience working in many different roles as a professional Supervisor, Counsellor, Counsellor Coordinator, Trainer and Facilitator both in group work and one-to-one therapeutic sessions.

Tracy Flux - Livewell Counselling Services is an established consultancy in ChorleyPreviously, I set up a counselling service within a Children’s Centre aimed at providing a safe space for parents to access.

I have a successful private practice and I am employed to work in higher education, supporting adults and young people.

My learning is continuous and this experience is recognised by my governing body the British Association For Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).  I am an accredited qualified Psychotherapist/ Counsellor and Supervisor.

I  have experience of offering Supervision to Professionals, Mangers, Counsellors,  Head teachers, Counselling for Staff and therapy to Children in Schools.

Supervision for those in education is a way of supporting staff to enable well-being and aid professional and personally growth. It is facilitative and restorative, helps to build resilience, skills, and helps to develop deeper levels of communication within their team.

In May 2016, I was awarded ‘accredited Counsellor, Psychotherapist’.  In my private practice I work alongside education and often receive referrals from external agencies.

I have also worked for Child Action North West, Rossendale School, Clayton Brooke Counsellor Coordinator, bank work for the NHS, Place 2be and a lead role supporting a counselling service within a Children’s Centre. All these roles are working with both adults and children.
