Tracey has been working as a counsellor since 2003 and has taught these courses previously at Westminster Adult Education Service and Brent Adult and Community Education Service. She is a graduate of the CPCAB progression courses and feels strongly that vocational counselling training offers a chance for people to send ripples into their communities that encourage people to have conversations and support each other’s growth.
