What do you love most about your job?

I set people free from stress/worry and pain that life can deal and restore their lives with powerful insights and experience. I love to heal people, their lives and their families. Health, vitality and happiness are so important to my life personally, that I love to inspire others to achieve all their wishes and desires. Witnessing transformation is everything to me. Sometimes I enter a difficult coaching session and think well how can I possibly give this person what they need and my deep level of perception of what they need - never fails me. My motto: Everything is possible...with support. We can thrive as individuals but you just need the right tools for the 'job'.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I have a passion for people living happy, meaningful lives. It really was a natural progression and as my skills increased from my own journey, I simply had to support others. Now having had a very successful corporate career, my coaching spans a broad range of topics. At a fundamental level issues arise from the same patterns old patterns. We all deal with difficult issues and this world is not designed to support us, we need to connect with others to heal.

Why should our clients choose you?

Clients usually come with fear but finish the session is such a better place. What may seems difficult or impossible, we work through easily. In fact they really enjoy working with me as they feel so empowered after just a few sessions. With my level of experience clients trust me, plus I am highly qualified so that is reassuring. They feel in safe hands and I have so many testimonials. I work with full integrity, honesty and confidentiality.

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.
