What do you love most about your job?

I am passionate about the benefits of Gestalt therapy, and its potential to support us all to live fully. I get a great deal of job satisfaction from being involved in positive change for individuals. I enjoy being able to meet so many different people, and my job is always interesting.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I have been practising Gestalt therapy at Crisis, the national charity for adults experiencing homelessness, since August 2016. I've worked at Crisis since December 2006, and my current role is Wellbeing and Mental Health Manager. I started my private practice in January 2018 to meet a wider range of clients, and for the opportunity to practice long term therapy. I also enjoy the freedom of managing my own therapy room, and making it the most therapeutic space possible.

Why should our clients choose you?

I have a masters in occupational psychology and have worked in the field of mental health and wellbeing for sixteen years. I'm a Gestalt Therapist in Senior Clinical Training, working towards accreditation as a psychotherapist through the Edinburgh Gestalt Institute. I am passionate about the possiblities for change through therapy, and find Gestalt is ideal for exploring a wide range of issues in a holistic way. I'm a compassionate, patient, creative individual, and I really enjoy my work.
I offer a free 30 minute initial consultation, which gives us an opportunity to meet, and for me to explain more about how I work and answer any questions, without commitment.

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.
