Tracey Mansted

Languages Spoken:

My name is Tracey Mansted and I am a psychodynamic counsellor and psychotherapist. Empathic is the name my private practice business, where I see adult and adolescent women for individual sessions here in North Canberra in the ACT.  From time to time I also offer mindfulness and contentment group courses both for teen girls and adult women. I also offer clinical EFT – tapping – after training through EFTUniverse.Throughout my life I have experienced people confiding in me and relating their stories to me. As a child I learnt how to be still and listen deeply, to emotionally “feel the other” as the psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud in 1905 described this energetic exchange when he used the German word “einfühlung” or “into feeling” which translates as “empathy”.Since starting out initially as a therapist in 1998 I have found every single client intriguing. I derive great intellectual and emotional satisfaction working in a team of two with my client to solve and unravel their deep puzzles of life issues, fears, concerns, and reckoning with the past to re-make positive futures. And as a neurodivergent woman I also have an additional special interest in working with neurodivergent clients, whatever the flavour: whether gifted, on the spectrum, with attention challenges, or just quirky. Difference and individuality are qualities I embrace in myself and others.After taking a child-raising break from my original counselling practice I am looking forward to starting a new journey with clients here in Canberra. I look forward to perhaps meeting you on that journey.
