About me

about meHello, my name is Tracy Shakes and I have been helping adults and children to understand the challenges or problems they face in life for over 25 years. I have a lot of experience of working with people who have experienced abuse, trauma or issues that impact on your everyday life.

Initially I trained in Person Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy and for lots of people counselling has facilitated positive change in their life and helped them to resolve issues and trauma that caused a difficulty or disturbance in their life.

I decided to expand the therapy that I could offer by training as a Clinical Hypnotherapist and also completing training in EMDR. I think that the combination of having been trained as a counsellor and having training in hypnotherapy and EMDR enables me to work with a broader range of complex problems that people may present with and to be able to offer the right level of support.

I am also able to offer therapy to people who are looking for help to manage their anger. I have completed the ‘Citizen Anger Management’ programme which is a six session course looking specifically and anger.

I work with people from the age of 5 upwards.

I practice in Solihull and Birmingham.

The choice of therapy lies with you, not with me. Should you wish to discuss the problem you have with me, in a free consultation call, and to then decide on the best course of therapy for you, this can be done.

I would hope that the initial chat will put you at ease and enable you to take the next step to book the appointment.
