WendyNormanCounsellingServices

I work from home as well as working alongside several other professional counsellors in an office setting. The company is small, personal, supportive and professional. We collaborate, negotiate, evaluate the current situation and challenges and make a plan together for a way forward that is agreeable to all.

What do you love most about your job?

I enjoy meeting people and finding ways to connect with each client so that they are comfortable, relaxed and feeling safe, heard and not judged.

It is quite magical to hear people's stories of their achievements and their challenges and to find ways together, collaborating, to make plans for changes that clients want.

I am honoured to get to see, hear and experience others in their sadness, confusion, disappointment, anger and pain expressions. It is a joy when we can work out how to untangle tangled messes and how to appreciate what sometimes is totally unseen that may help the situations clients find themselves in.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I have always wanted to be my own boss and to set up a counselling business that has my unique style and ways of being as its signature state.

Why should our clients choose you?

I am well trained with post graduate qualifications in two very different modalities (psychodynamic psychotherapy and narrative/collaborative modalities). I have Australian Counselling Association membership and professional backup as well as a highly recommended supervisor who I meet with regularly. Judy Boyland checks that I am counselling safely and ethically with all my clients. I have had nearly 10 years of counselling experience with qualifications and letters of recommendation to view should clients ask for that.

Besides all formal training, qualifications and counselling experience, as a person I am trustworthy, gentle, understanding and compassionate. When we come to a counsellor, we want to feel heard and acknowledged. When we tell our stories of sorrow, pain, confusion or fury, we want help managing those big emotions and assistance to find the right pathway out and into better life situations. I can do this and assist you so that you find the courage and energy to improve your coping mechanisms in difficult circumstances.

Can you provide your services online or remotely? If so, please add details.

I can provide remote and online counselling via Zoom or Skype or any other platform that you might wish.

What changes have you made to keep your customers safe from Covid-19?

For face-to-face clients, I request answers to 4 basic Covid-19 questions and clients sign and date that form before being permitted entrance to my counselling rooms. They sign a statement agreeing to update me should any information on their Covid declaration form change in the future.

I have hand sanitizers in both the entrance way and in the counselling room itself.

I maintain 1.5 meters distancing at all times prior to, during and after counselling sessions.

Counselling FAQs

Your expert Counsellor will be able to advise you on the full range of services available and will be able to advise on what is most suitable. Use Bark to get free quotes and schedule an appointment today.

At your appointment, you will be encouraged to talk about your feelings and emotions with a trained Counsellor who will listen and support you without judging or criticising.
The therapist can help you gain a better understanding of your feelings and thought processes and find your own solutions to problems. However, they will not usually give advice or tell you what to do. The Counsellor might sum up what they understand you have been saying so that they can help you to form a plan of action.

Counselling can take place in a number of ways. These include:

  • Face to face session

  • Group session

  • Phone session

  • Email session

  • Online through live chat services or video conferencing software

You may be offered a single session of Counselling, a short course of sessions over a few weeks or months or a longer course that lasts for several months or years.

It can take a number of sessions before you start to see progress but you should gradually start to feel better with the help and support of your Counsellor.

You can be confident that any of the Bark local Counsellors listed will give you a reliable and efficient service to help you feel better.

You could look for Counsellors that are accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA) which means that they have met the PSA’s required professional standards to practise.

Before you choose a Counsellor, you could read testimonials and read details of the issues they can help with on their website.

You could also look at their profile page on Bark and check out reviews from past customers too.

Counselling can help with many issues. These include the following:

  • Mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety or eating disorders.

  • Physical health conditions such as infertility.

  • Difficult life events such as a bereavement, a relationship breakdown or work-related stress.

  • Dealing with difficult emotions such as low self-esteem or anger.

  • Sexual identity issues.

  • Divorce.

  • Redundancy and work issues.

  • Phobias and fears.

Absolutely! Many Counsellors provide their services remotely via an online video call or the telephone. Not only is it more convenient, but it's also the preferable option for many people who would feel more comfortable holding the session from the comfort of their own home.
