Damian Castello Counselling

I am an integrative counsellor & psychotherapist, which means that I bring together different elements of specific therapies, tailored to suit the individual needs and personal circumstances of my clients. I help individuals with low self-esteem, disruptive patterns of behaviour and overwhelming emotions, such as anger and anxiety to start living a life of being true to themselves, to feel less anxious and manage anger in better ways when in comes up.

What do you love most about your job?

The privilege of working with people from different walks of life, with different stories and aspirations.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Firstly, it is my life's passion to support people with living happy and healthy lives and to achieve their full potential. Working in private practice enables me to fulfill this passion. I also wanted to prove to myself that I could do it. I procrastinated for many years through fear of failure. Secondly, I love the flexibility and freedom working in private practice offers.

Why should our clients choose you?

I am a warm, empathetic and compassionate person who will give you my undivided attention and I will accept you for who you are. I am fully committed to supporting you to achieve your goals in therapy.

Can you provide your services online or remotely? If so, please add details.

Yes, I am working exclusively online via Zoom, a secure end-to-end encrypted video call platform.

What changes have you made to keep your customers safe from Covid-19?

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, I am working exclusively online via Zoom, a secure end-to-end encrypted video call platform and by telephone. The health and safety of my clients is imperative. I will return to face-to-face work as soon as it is practicable, alongside my online practice.

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.
