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 have a great understanding of difference and diversity.  I have experience working in many different roles as a professional counsellor, counsellor coordinator, trainer and facilitator both in group work and one-to-one 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 supporting adults on low incomes.  I work both in a private practice and I am employed to work in higher education, supporting both young people and adults.

My learning is continuous and this experience is recognised by my governing body the British Association For Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).  In May 2016, I was awarded ‘accredited counsellor, psychotherapist’.  In my private practice I work alongside education and often receive referrals from 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.
