What do you love most about your job?

I get so much from seeing the change that counselling or hypnotherapy can make to people's lives no matter what their age or circumstance. Having personal experience of therapy I have first hand knowledge of the difference it can make.
I love both counselling and hypnotherapy and if asked I would find it hard to choose between them. I feel very fortunate that I can offer either and if a client cannot decide which they would prefer we can discuss both and then move forward.

What inspired you to start your own business?

As previously stated I have experienced therapy myself so have first hand knowledge as to the difference it can really make so when the opportunity to change direction presented its self I grabbed it with both hands and trained as a counsellor/Hypnotherapist .
Its a decision that I am so pleased and happy I made and gratefull that I had the opportunity to do so .

Why should our clients choose you?

I have an optimistic and enthusiastic approach to life with a firm understanding of life and it's problems and that there are solutions to them . I am non judgemental and confidentiality is very important to me as you the client needs to feel safe and the relationship between a therapist and the client is a very big important part of therapy.
One of the areas I specialise in is addictions not only for those with the problem but with the difficulties this brings to family and friends.
A little Anxiety is something that can be good as it plays a part in motivating us but at times it can go into overdrive and then it can get out of control.Working together we can bring the anxiety back down and also find out where ever possible where it come from and knowing where it comes from can go a long way to relieving the anxiety .
Whatever your issue we can work together to bring about the solution .

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.
