What do you love most about your job?

It is highly rewarding to make very real impact on the wellbeing of individuals experiencing stuggle on a daily basis.

The world is full of people suffering in silence, they may not want to burden their families with their issues... However, it is not healthy to go through life carrying this weight around with you.

At Under the Wing, we are the ‘outsider’, it is much easier unloading troubles onto someone you do not know- you can’t hurt them!

What inspired you to start your own business?

Having experienced loss and trauma at a young age, I felt isolated, suicidal and unable to cope. I found myself again through spirituality and with the support of other people facing similar circumstances I had met on an online chatroom.

I realised that strangers were significantly easier to talk to than my own family and medical professionals who I felt didn’t have the life experience to understand where I was coming from.

After bouncing back stronger than ever, I was determined to provide a service to people struggling through life, offering an annonymous alternative to those who have no one to turn to.

Now as a prospective medical student, I am dedicating my life to helping others and enjoying providing support and guidance to those who need it.

Why should our clients choose you?

Having ‘been there, done that and got the T-Shirt’ (so to speak!) I feel that I have valuable knowledge, the enthusiasm and dedication to help others find theirselves again.

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.
