Tracey’s exciting career began in biochemical research which took her around the globe, including the UK, Switzerland and the USA. She then became an educator and taught in high schools, colleges and universities.

Tracey achieved her Practitioner and Master Practitioner qualifications in all disciplines with Quest for Success Ltd. Her interest in NLP was ignited when she discovered the thinking and techniques would help her to overcome anxiety when engaging in her sporting passion of horse riding. Tracey rides competitively and uses NLP to enable her to really enjoy her sport and perform at her optimum level at all times. On a professional level, she utilises NLP to understand the complex processes of learning and motivation for learning in young people.

Whilst training, Tracey realised the versatility and profound results NLP furnishes. Moreover, she became increasingly interested in not only using NLP as an aid for herself, but in bringing about significant changes in clients.

Tracey believes in ‘client-centred’, bespoke coaching and therapy sessions, helping people to connect with their full potential. She provides very caring, supportive sessions, together with follow-up chats or emails. This ensures that the changes made can be self-maintained and, are therefore, long lasting. She is dedicated to helping her clients understand the enormous benefits of making their minds work for them, not against them.

In her spare time, Tracey enjoys riding her mare Lottie and looking after her retired thoroughbred, Tiggy. She also loves armchair sports, including football and cricket and she has recently taken up Equi-Pilates.

Tracey is a member of good standing of the American Board of NLP, The American Board of Hypnosis and the Time Line Therapy™ Association.
