Tracey Bramham holds a Bsc (Hons) degree in Five Element and TCM Acupuncture from the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading, and is a fully insured member of the British Acupuncture Council.
Tracey treats a variety of conditions in her clinic, but she does have a special interest in the treatment of endometriosis, PCOS, infertility and menopause.
She is a registered NHS volunteer acupuncturist for the My Cancer My Choices charity and, as a result, is a keen advocate of promoting the use of acupuncture alongside traditional cancer treatment to help combat some of the side effects of chemotherapy and medication (hot flushes, peripheral neuropathy and fatigue).
Many people initially come for acupuncture looking for relief from various aches and pains, but many often continue having on-going treatment as a result of discovering some of its other benefits. This could include helping to improve their general sense of wellbeing; to relax and de-stress or simply to use it as a preventative measure to maintain good health. Each acupuncture treatment you receive is unique to you.
Our health and well-being are precious commodities that we often ignore, and we can push ourselves to the limit trying to balance a stressful workload and long working hours with a happy family and social life. This can put a lot of pressure on your body and mind, and throw you out of balance.
Acupuncture is a gentle and ancient holistic therapy that treats your body and mind as an integrated whole, with the aim of returning you to a state of balance.
Tracey offers a free 15 minute telephone consultation, so please get in touch to discuss any aspect of treatment, or to make an appointment:
Tel: 07786 172 900
Tracey is also co-founder of Zen Zone in Reading, which offers affordable group ear acupuncture treatments on select Sundays at The Therapy Centre. The sessions are primarily aimed at students of all ages, but everyone is welcome. Please visit www.zenzoneinreading.org.uk for further details.

I strive to create a safe, kind, and compassionate space where we can explore together your unique experience. I will support you as you explore your thoughts, feeling, actions, and beliefs, making small changes for yourself, moving from a place of unhappiness and difficulty, to living life more fully.
Part of my role is to help you explore why you think and behave in the way you do. With greater awareness comes greater choice, as you can then choose to change what you’re not happy with.
As a person-centred counsellor, I adapt to the needs of the individual whether exploring the past or present challenges, or understanding the meaning of your experience. The counselling session belongs to you. I won’t direct or advise you, but I will facilitate your own insight and support you as you make the choices to change.

Mira's first contact with Shiatsu goes back over 15 years, when she had her first treatment. In 2005 she did a weekend course in Shiatsu, which allowed her to do simple treatments on her friends and family, who enjoyed the relaxing and rhythmic massage.
Having practised martial arts since her teens, Mira found Taiji in 2008. In 2010 she joined the London College of Shiatsu to become a Shiatsu practitioner. That same year she started teaching Taiji and Qi Gong and finally left her City job in 2011 to fully concentrate on learning Taiji and Shiatsu.
Mira graduated as a fully qualified Shiatsu practitioner in 2013, and is a registered member of Shiatsu Society (UK) and fully insured. She attends workshops and extra training regularly to develop her skills as a practitioner.
Mira is specialised in back pain and structural alignment issues. "Bad backs" run in her family, so she has first hand experience on how it feels, and what can be done to alleviate and even get rid of the pain. She believes that maintaining proper alignment of the body is the key in resolving many physical problems, and that we are responsible for our own health.

Counselling/Transpersonal Integrative Psychotherapy
Counselling, Transpersonal Psychotherapy
Would you like to begin to unlock the real you? Or do you just need some help with some of life's challenges?
I have been practising in counselling and psychotherapy for over 7 years and provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment for you to explore whatever you wish. I am affiliated to the industry professional body (the BACP) and work with individuals on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, aiming to enable you to enhance your life, realise your True Self and to live it more fully. I've developed particular experience with depression, anxiety, eating disorders, coping with illness (especially cancer), relationships and personal growth and development.
Psychotherapy and counselling can appear a little daunting and talking about ourselves doesn't always come easily. The many types and approaches to counselling and psychotherapy can be confusing and perhaps don't help getting started. Whichever therapist you choose, ensure you feel happy with them and what they're doing and never be afraid to simply try another.
I'm trained in both counselling and psychotherapy at CCPE , London and other experience includes a psychiatric study placement at Liverpool Mersey Care NHS Trust. An Integrative approach means that I've covered a number of different techniques (including Person Centred, Psychodynamic, Gestalt and Existential as well as CBT and art therapy) so dependent on what you need we can tailor an approach or use tools and practices best for you. The Transpersonal aspect allows us to hold whilst we work that you have a particular, precious and unique you that is striving to unfold. Perhaps the hope offered by the quote from Hāfez best sums up how I work:
"I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness the astonishing light of your own being." Hāfez. Why not start to find the real you today rather than tomorrow?

Counselling, EFT Emotional Freedom Technique
My name is Poospah . I have a background in psychiatric nursing. While working as a nurse I came to feel that my skills and knowledge were incomplete and limited how much help I could be to others. My strong desire to be more effective and productive in helping others took me on a beautiful journey where I went through my own healing process and also learnt a number of healing techniques that I now use to help clients on their journey.
Over the past twenty years I have worked with people with mental health problems and learning disabilities, providing them with the support they need to live life to the best of their abilities. As a Counsellor, EFT Practitioner and Spiritual Facilitator, I have provided support and guidance to others in their spiritual development and on their healing journey. I am currently working as a volunteer counsellor with survivors of rape and sexual abuse. I have a private practice where I work with people with various issues: trauma, depression, anxieties, phobias, fear, relationship issues, and others.
I use tools such as visualisation, positive affirmations, meditation, contemplation, Compassion Focussed Therapy and mindfulness to enable you to transform negative thoughts and energies into positive and constructive ones and break patterns of negative behaviour that keep on repeating. Meditation and mindfulness may enable you to live with awareness and as you become aware of your thoughts and feelings you can make choices that help, not hinder, you and which can enlighten your life. You stop living as a victim and start creating a life of possibilities and abundance for yourself.
As you clear negative thoughts, feelings and emotions and break old and negative patterns you gradually find the place of love and compassion within you and from that place you can be kind, compassionate and give love to yourself and others. Your journey becomes a beautiful journey of self-discovery.

Level 4 Diploma in Integrated Therapy, BSc.Psychology, MSc.Developmental Psychopathology, AC-accredited coaching qualification (Making Life Better), MBACP, MBPsS
Counselling is about building a working relationship, based on trust and empathy. Using this relationship, we can work together to identify the problems that are worrying you, how they came to be, and what you might want to do about them. As a person-centred counsellor, I believe that the people who come to see me have within themselves the insight and direction they need to do this work, and that my role in the counselling relationship is to support and be with them as they examine and talk through the most important issues in their lives. We can look at ways of accessing and using that insight, and how to continue using it in daily life.
I bring to our sessions a knowledge of childhood development and psychology, and how the thoughts, feelings and behaviour we learn as children affect us as adults, in every area of our lives. I also use theories around relationships and attachment to look at our early relationships with family members, and how they affect our relationships as adults. Whilst it is important to work with the present, it is also helpful to look at past issues that may have influenced our present, and to look to what we want from our future.
Issues I work with:
- Anxiety and depression
- More complex mental health issues
- Sexual abuse and rape
- Self-harming behaviours
- Substance abuse
- Career and life direction.
Sessions cost Ł45 per hour, although I am happy to negotiate this cost for those on a low income.

My approach is person-centered and integrative.
