The Curiously Kind Counsellor

~ Human beings don’t respond to techniques. We respond to feeling seen, and feeling heard, and feeling felt ~ Carolyn Spring Hi and welcome to my page, I’m aware that you may be here after facing a difficult experience or you may be facing some ongoing challenges in your life, which may be leaving you feeling distressed, anxious, overwhelmed or as if things are out of your control. It may be that your feeling low in mood but cannot understand why. It is my aim to help you understand what is happening, working together at your pace to help you make sense of your experiences and find a way forward. There is no “one size fits all” approach, as the therapy process is as unique as the human experience. It is for this reason I use a relational integrative approach, which means that my work is grounded in the person-centred and compassion focused approaches but can also be tailored to ensure your needs are met. An area of specialist interest in my work is bereavement and loss. Grief can be a lonely time, especially when it rearranges our contact list, and many people question what the point of counselling is when it comes to loss. I completely understand this question because as much as I would love to be able to say I can fix the unfixable – I can’t, and I also can’t help you to get over it because that isn’t possible either. However, what counselling can offer you, is a space for your grief to be seen, acknowledged, and validated. A space for you to be entirely honest and open about your grief – every messy, complicated, contradictory feeling and thought is welcome. It’s a space for you to process something so life-shatteringly big, you wonder what’s next or how you keep putting one foot in front of the other when it feels as if your world stopped turning the day your loved one died. It’s a space that, over time, can help you to live alongside your loss.  Although counselling cannot fix it, your grief deserves a voice. How else can I help you? I have worked with many individuals who have been looking for support for a variety of reasons, including; Low self-esteem / Imposter Syndrome  Anxiety Depression Grief, Bereavement & Loss Work-related difficulties Trauma Feeling sad and/or low in mood Managing change Feelings of shame and/or guilt Difficulties with relationships Whatever your difficulty or reason for seeking counselling, I provide compassionate support and understanding, helping you to make sense of your experiences. If you are struggling, please get in touch by text/voicemail or email. I offer a free, no obligation, brief introductory call for you to talk through what you are looking for and for you to ask any questions you may have. Alternatively, if you would like to know more about me, then I invite you to visit my website: www.thecuriouslykindcounsellor.com. **Please note** - I currently only work online and/or by telephone. - I'm only able to work with adults aged 18+ - My standard fee is £45 per 50 minute session but I do also offer a small number of reduced fee places so please feel free to enquire. - For any general enquiries, please contact me directly through my website, as I am unable to respond via Bark.

What do you love most about your job?

I am naturally curious and interested in people, their lived experiences and who they are in the world at the current time. I am passionate about helping others to increase awareness and understanding of their experiences and their needs. Greater self-awareness enables us to make choices that feel more aligned to our authentic self, helping us to meet our needs in the moment. It also allows us to break away from unconscious coping mechanisms that we no longer feel help us.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Becoming a Counsellor has been a lifelong ambition but working in a tailored way that supports the needs of individual clients is of paramount importance in my work. Often working for an agency, you are required to follow their processes, procedures and ways of working. Working for myself, allows me to offer you a tailored service that would be best suited to your needs. I continue to undertake regular CPD and I work in an integrative way, which allows me to draw on a number of different approaches. I work in both a time-limited and open-ended way, enabling us to work in a short-term focused way or on a longer-term basis exploring things in greater depth.

Why should our clients choose you?

I understand choosing a counsellor and beginning counselling can be a daunting process and I understand the importance of working with someone you feel you can trust. It is for these reasons, I am happy to offer a free, no obligation, 15 minute call for you to tell me a little bit about what you are looking for from counselling and to ask any questions you may have. I can also tell you a little bit about how I work. If, after this discussion, we feel I may not be the right person to help you, then I can help you to find someone else more suited to your needs.

Can you provide your services online or remotely? If so, please add details.

I currently only work online using Zoom or WhatsApp, which offers video and voice-only options. I also work by telephone if this is preferred. I have undertaken sufficient training in working online and/or by telephone, ensuring that I can work with clients safely and ethically.

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.
