Helping people is my passion not my profession. Testimonial: When my husband left, and I was faced with living alone for the first time in 30 years, I was at a loss as to what to do. So I ranted with friends and neighbors who didn’t want to take sides or get involved. I got angry and said things to my husband and my kids that I shouldn’t have. And I unsuccessfully tried to soothe my sorrows in food and drink. Then I hired Patricia as my divorce coach. And, although I still do some things I regret, I do far less of them. And I better understand why I do them. She has saved me a lot of money that I would have spent on psychotherapy and lawyers! She is an excellent listener and meets me where I am at. She asks questions that enable me to think through what is going on and access my options. At times, she has encouraged me to slow down and process, while other times, when she sees that I am physically and psychologically ready to move on, she helps me do so. Through her examples and gentle suggestions, I have learned the importance of self-acceptance and self-care. She has helped me analyze my communications to my husband and my kids and adjust so that all of us move forward. Although I still react emotionally at times, as a result of processing with her what went wrong, or planning for a future communication, I am better able to respond in accordance with my values and in a way that role models appropriate behavior to my kids. I am still scared about what lies ahead. However, as a result of working with Patricia, I feel comfortable that no matter what happens, all of us will come through it ok, and will be able to gather together as a family. Most importantly, I will be happy as a single person, and have few regrets regarding the decisions I made and how I conducted myself during the transition. Judy

Counselling FAQs

Expand all

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.
