What do you love most about your job?

My passion in life is about empowering others to achieve their full potential. I gain a huge amount of fulfilment in working with clients to take steps towards a happier and more productive future and enjoy the challenge of working with individuals from all different walks of life.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I was inspired to start my own business initial due to my own personal journey of personal growth. I saw first hand the impact of questioning my belief systems and breaking negative mindsets. I also was inspired to start working with children after my daughter faced her own trauma in terms of a life limiting medical diagnosis so educating myself in terms of working with children was first hand to support my daughter to my full potential then secondly to use those same principles in order to support others.

Why should our clients choose you?

I am extremely passionate about what I do. To me this is more than just a career, I am not striving for financial success, as this is not my drive. I left a highly paid role in Project Management so that I could pursue my passion and make an impact. I believe we all have the ability to choose freedom, to make choices and to make steps towards achieving our goals and overcoming the barriers in our live. I feel you can spend years training, knowing the theory behind the practice, but unless you have walked this path personally and come out the other side that you are not in a position to fully understand and to assist and support to the highest level. I believe my personal background adds to my experience and qualifications and gives me the advantage in terms of being fully able to support others.

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.
