Choosing your counselling service with Bark

Everyone needs a little help from time to time. Working with a counsellor can be a really positive step towards improving your lifestyle and taking control of your mental health. Remove the guesswork in choosing a counsellor by filling out our secure form with details of your requirements. We’ll then retrieve quotes from qualified counselling services in London. Therapy can be an incredibly powerful process, helping you reconnect with a relationship or deal with bereavement. Having an objective professional on hand can be a welcome relief, providing important mechanisms to work through any issues.

Extended counselling services

Some counsellors are happy to work online and over the phone to help you manage your problems. These remote counselling services are great for those who are short on time. Others specialise in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and some professionals are able to offer psychotherapy sessions.

What to expect

Your first sessions will likely focus around your lifestyle, relationships and the issues you are experiencing. Your counsellor will be building a detailed picture of your mental health and the factors that affect it. Therapy sessions can then be designed around your own personal needs, with the ultimate goal of improving your mental health.

How much does Counselling cost in London?

Why did you become a counsellor?

I did psychology at university so have always had an interest in the human brain. I decided very early on that I want to help people with their mental health, so completed the necessary training to become BACP accredited (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). It can be a tough job at times, but also very rewarding as I help my clients through what can be troubling times in their lives.

What services can you offer your clients?

A lot of my work is focused around relationship counselling nowadays. However, I do have clients that use my Cognitive Behavioural Therapy services to improve their general mental health. The majority of my work is in personal or couples therapy rather than group sessions. I feel it provides a far more personalised approach to their issues.

What experience do you have?

I opened my practice five years ago after a career at some of the more established counselling services in London (including the NHS). As a psychoanalytic psychotherapist, I’m able to offer both counselling and psychotherapy, although they are often interlinked.

Counselling FAQs

Expand all

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.
