Tracey Woolf

Location: Norwich city centre

I trained in the person-centred approach and believe that we all have capacity for healing and growth, despite obstacles that might get in the way. I am and always have been passionate about people and relationships and think it is important to find a counsellor that you feel comfortable with and to know that you will not be judged but will be met with genuine acceptance and empathy.

As well as running a private therapy practice, I have many years of experience working in the voluntary sector, mainly in mental health and support settings so I am familiar with workplace trauma and the impact it can have on people’s lives.

I use pronouns she/her and have experience working with people exploring gender, sex and relationship diversity.

I work from a tranquil setting in the heart of Norwich but for now and meeting clients online or via telephone.  I currently offer an introductory session at half of my usual fee, currently via zoom to see if we feel comfortable working together.


£50 a session (60 minutes)


Available week-days between 8am- 6pm
