What do you love most about your job?

I love working with people and seeing them progress, build awareness and make the changes they want to. I work in a client-centred way, meaning that the focus is on you, what you want, or need, how you want to move forward, and what changes you want to make.

I am passionate about good emotional and mental health. It can be something we take for granted when it needs to be something we invest time effort, and sometimes, when we need to, money, into. (It can feel self-indulgent, but in reality, it is often self-preservation.)

It is a privilege to witness the growth and change in a person, and an honour to be their confidante - sometimes the only person they have told a secret.

There is much that I love about counselling, but for me, the best part is when a client feels ready to move on. I know then that I have done a good job!

What inspired you to start your own business?

I have been in practice since 2006 and teaching counselling since 2009. I decided to set up my own training company in 2015 after working a 55 hour week and travelling 350 miles a week to work and back for over 5 years. It was a leap of faith, but I have no regrets.

Why should our clients choose you?

I have a wealth of experience in various settings:

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.
