What do you love most about your job?

Being able to support and help people when they need it the most is a very satisfying experience. Helping people through their journey when they are struggling with life’s challenges is a real privilege. Being able to work with a client toward that 'light bulb' moment when they can see a clear pathway ahead of them makes counselling very rewarding.

What inspired you to start your own business?

We both came from very different areas of business and realized we were the go-to person when colleagues or customers wanted a chat. We both started to think about career changes and each undertook four years of counsellor training. We purposefully chose to train at different colleges as we knew it would provide alternative perspectives and this has formed a real foundation for business. We knew we wanted to work closely with people and feel we have a good insight (through our own challenges in life) of modern day stresses.

Why should our clients choose you?

Right from the start we can offer potential clients a key choice in what will be the cornerstone of their journey - feeling comfortable with a therapist; we offer both male and female counsellors. This is an important choice which should allow a client to be able to discuss their life concerns without embarrassment. Following the initial call a client will have a telephone conversation with their therapist, allowing them to summarize their situation. The client will then be invited to a 'getting to know you' assessment which usually lasts an hour and half. We tend to see clients weekly and can offer appointments during office hours and at evening / weekends should this be more convenient. No time limits are set as every therapeutic relationship is different, but we do set regular reviews to assess progress and goals.

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.
