What do you love most about your job?

Our counsellors have joined us because they love what they do, they feel it is a calling. The best part of the job is seeing the different people and being given the privilege to walk alongside them while they are on their own road to what they want to change or where they want to be.
Knowing by giving someone the space to explore their thoughts, feelings and emotions, and truly listening without judging them, a person is able to make those changes.

What inspired you to start your own business?

We started our agency because we feel that many more people would like to access counselling but do to one reason or another, they feel they couldn't.
Our aim is enable counselling is accessible to everyone regardless of issue, gender, sexuality, finance or background. We want to raise awareness of mental health and feel it is as important as physical health.

Why should our clients choose you?

We feel we offer counselling that is client lead, from our approach ( integrative approach), ensuring each counsellor has varied past experience working with different issues, to our sliding scale ( making counselling accessible to all)

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.
