What do you love most about your job?

We love the fact that we can help so many people - 98% of our clients said they would recommend us to family and friends and the same number said they would use our service again if they needed help. 93% of our clients told us that counselling helped them - this is marvellous feedback. The fact that we can help people quickly is a real bonus too.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Our CEO, Marjorie Hunter, started the business in 2006 to help people who are carers to have some emotional support. We still work with carers but we have now expanded the business to work with a wide range of people.

Our vision is to have a world where counselling is available and affordable to everyone who needs it.

Why should our clients choose you?

We are unique in that we match the counsellor to you. We gain as much understanding of your issues as possible and we find the counsellor from our pool of over 50 who will work best with you. And if you find they aren't the right one, we've got lots of other people who can help you get the best our of counselling.

Because we aren't linked to the NHS there will be no record of counselling in your medical files - this is an important consideration for people in certain jobs.

We've got lots of capacity to counsel people - so you should never be waiting more than 1 week for your first appointment.

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.
