What do you love most about your job?

Whilst there are times when work can be challenging, I always tell my clients no matter the age, when they come to therapy we work as a team. Together, starting from the beginning, I help them gain knowledge and insight into the skills that are required to start building on their emotional health and well being. To see the challenges that some people face and overcome through therapy, to see those 'light bulb moments' is so rewarding, I feel very privileged to be a part of their therapy journey. Helping clients make the steps needed to ultimately achieve their long term goal.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Previously working for the NHS I decided to set up working privately as I felt that due to waiting targets and service demands, I was unable to give clients the time and quality they deserved. I believe in offering a quality service and therefore giving people the time and space required to start exploring any difficulties they might be experiencing, challenging negative thoughts, feelings or behaviours in a safe and confidential environment.

Why should our clients choose you?

Passionate about being able to deliver quality, I recognised the niche for developing a specialist talking therapies service, accessible to children, young people and adults.  A service available to deliver evidence based outcomes within a timely manner, as a result, I decided to take the initiative to set up Sunflower Cognitive Therapies.
I am open and honest and I will spend time helping you to understand the presenting difficulties.  Alongside, I have developed good communication skills and knowledge to support and work with families and other professionals alike.

Therapist FAQs

This will vary according to the level of experience and training that the therapist holds.

This will depend on where you live, what level of training your therapist has and what they specialise in (whether they are a counsellor, psychotherapist or psychologist) and also how many years of working experience they have.

Your professional therapist will be able to advise you on the full range of therapies available and will be able to help you select the best one to suit your needs. They will also be able to answer any questions you may have. Use Bark to get free quotes and find a trusted therapist today.

You need to devote some time to finding the right therapist as the connection you have with your therapist is essential. You need someone who you can trust, someone you feel comfortable talking to about difficult subjects and intimate secrets, someone who will be a partner in your recovery. Therapy will not be effective unless you have this bond, so take some time in the beginning to find the right person.

It is worth talking to a few potential therapists and asking questions. Therapists also have special areas of focus, such as depression or eating disorders. For some issues, such as trauma or PTSD, seeing a specialist is absolutely essential.

Everyone’s treatment is different. How long your therapy lasts depends on many factors.

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 trusted Bark therapist.

Professional counsellor training takes three to five years and can be a diploma or degree level. Qualification requires a minimum number of client hours acquired through a work placement.

You may also want to ask for testimonials of their recent work. You could also look at their profile page on Bark and Bark can show you reviews from past customers who have used their therapy.

Therapy has repeatedly and consistently helped patients with a whole host of issues. It can help with mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety or an eating disorder. Or it can help with an upsetting physical health condition such as infertility, a difficult life event such as a bereavement or a relationship breakdown. It can also be used to tackle difficult emotions such as low self-esteem, anger or sexual identity issues. Therapists also offer couples therapy. Therapists can also help with anxiety issues deriving from the coronavirus.

Absolutely! Many therapists offer sessions over the phone or through an online video chat platform, so you can have a session from the comfort of your own home - all you need is a strong internet connection and you're good to go.
