Small Steps Counselling

Alone, terrified, hopeless, depressed, unmotivated, unlovable, sick with worry – HUMAN. At some point, we will all feel this way. But we get stuck and fail to realise in the depths of despair that all we really need to do is to take one small step. I am Daniel Dickson, a qualified Cognitive-behavioural therapist and graduate of The Centre of Therapy and Counselling Studies in Glasgow with a SCOTACS Diploma in Counselling and Groupwork: A CBT Approach. I am a member of the BACP and BABCP and hold professional indemnity insurance. For 2 years, I have been providing one-to-one cognitive-behavioural therapy and psychoeducational groups for a range of issues and disorders, particularly with feelings of depression and anxiety and have a background in providing therapeutic support to alcohol and drug users. My strengths lie in my empathy and gentleness and reading between the lines in what I am being told. First and foremost, I believe in connecting with my clients through openness and genuineness without judgement. I want to sit with you, as you are and with patience and kindness reflect back to you what I observe and learn from you as you speak. I will teach you tools and techniques and provide education to help you better understand yourself and grow into the person you want to become. I will encourage and support you with each step you take until we agree that you are ready to continue your self-work without my support. Cost per 50-minute session is £40 (concessions available) and usually held weekly online over Zoom.

a professional

What do you love most about your job?

For years I knew that I was someone who had to have career helping others. It is just my nature. I always had an interest in psychology and I was often the person others would turn to for support.

What I love most is that I am living my dream job! I get to help others but still make money doing what I love. I feel incredibly privileged to be part of a profession that helps to heal and empower the lives of others. Because persuing this job did that for me. It's my true purpose in life.

What inspired you to start your own business?

As I was training to become a therapist, I never really envisaged an NHS job or working for an organisation. I am a very self-reliant person and I loved the idea of managing myself and organising my day to day and the business side of things. Some people see that as a hassle but I see it as an exciting challenge. And I love it.

Why should our clients choose you?

Simply because I want to help and I am passionate about the work I do. I understand that a paying client deserves the best from me and I am a self reflective practitioner who is always improving. I am client orientated and I truly want to see you reach your goals and your highest potential because I believe it's possible. I know that you're worthy of change even if you don't right now.

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

Yes, online and remote therapy is done through Zoom or over the phone.

What changes have you made to keep your customers safe from Covid-19?

All of my counselling work has moved online via Zoom. I also offer telephone therapy for the less technically inclined.

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.
