What do you love most about your job?

My passion is to see people change and be the person they want to be. The word Eleos is ancient Greek compassion, but the literal rendering of the word means to walk in the suffering of another; I think that totally embodies my idea of what therapy should be about. There’s an old saying that says you will know what a man really feels like when you walk a mile in his shoes. In therapy, my aim is to step into your world truly understand what is going on for you. Often, at the beginning of therapy, I will use the analogy of a walk down on a beach to illustrate how therapy really is. I am not to walk in front of you or behind you but side-by-side in your journey. Then, one day I’m not there you walking on your own, understanding yourself and how you truly are.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I love my job with a passion and what better way of sharing your passion than to be working it. I started Eleos Counselling as a way of offering therapy to people who may never normally see a therapist. Starting my business was a natural progression after completing my degree. I wanted to put some of the ideas, technologies, and ideas for therapy to a practical situation. Hopefully, this is all to the benefit of the client.

Why should our clients choose you?

My goal as your therapist is to help you unshackle yourself from burdens which may have been holding you back for years. This may be depressive episodes, addictions, anger, anxiety, obsessive thoughts, interrelationship and relationship problems. Eating disorders, and a multitude of other issues. Fundamentally anything that’s stopping you from being the person you want to be.
I’m not a passive listener, I actively engage with you to help you look at your problems in a new way sharing insights and offer ideas, often this will be challenging. I value being transparent and work hard to address, whatever issues are most important you on any given session.
I stay current with the latest training in proven scientific principles to guide my work. I also feel I have compassion and offer a non-judgemental and somewhat playful approach to engaging with clients. That is characterised by the way I conduct therapy. My work with my clients is highly collaborative, and in highlighting your strengths and insight is a central importance to any therapy.

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.
