‘21 Certificate of Excellence

I offer face to face and telephone therapy. Quite often we are our own worse critic. Do you take better care of others than you do yourself? Do you feel that people don't really know the "real" you? And if they did see the real you, they wouldn't like you? Do you keep finding yourself in relationships that feel toxic? Do you feel deep down that there is something not quite right? Do you wish for a time when you could feel happy and content and relaxed with just being yourself? Therapy can help you feel more compassionate towards yourself so that you stop giving yourself such a hard time. There is nothing magical about psychotherapy. No magic wands. No special potions. But what I offer is the time and the space to be listened to, to be important and to be understood. I will sit with you and be alongside you whilst you spend time considering your difficulties. I offer face to face sessions as well as telephone sessions. Many people think about therapy for a long time before making the decision to go ahead. Making changes is scary. Making yourself vulnerable is scary. It is normal to have these feelings. But by starting therapy you are giving yourself a chance to feel happier and more content in your relationships with yourself and others.

What do you love most about your job?

I love getting to meet such a variety of people and helping them to feel better in themselves. People often feel that there is something wrong with them, or that everyone else is doing so much better. I have found that most of us can feel like this at different times and there is something reassuring to know that we all have our own demons. I believe that it can be really comforting sometimes just to know that there is someone there who understands and listens.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I have worked as a social worker with children and families for 24 years, and for 15 years I have worked with adopted children and their families. It's always fascinated me how our early life experiences affect us in later life and so training in psychotherapy seemed a natural progression for me.

Why should our clients choose you?

I haven't got a stock answer for this. I think that what works for one person won't work for another. I think that I am a very down to earth person and am easy to talk to. I have lots of life experience to draw on so nothing shocks or surprises me.
I'm really committed to providing a service to all different people and so whilst my fee is £45 an hour, I also offer a reduced rate for those on a low income.

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

I currently offer face to face and telephone therapy. If a client prefers online then I will offer this.

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.
