ONLINE INDIVIDUAL PSYCHOTHERAPY AND COUNSELLING COUPLES COUNSELLING Are you dealing with anxiety, depression or loss? Have you experienced violence or trauma? If you have answered yes to these questions, then working with a psychotherapist can help you. In these very difficult times, when everyone is facing uncertainty, life events and unresolved issues may seem even more amplified. Some may find it strange to seek help online but having worked with clients this way over long periods of time, for many years, it is as effective. I have extensive experience in working with clients who have faced relationship difficulties, trauma, depression and anxiety. As a registered general and mental health nurse, my skills enable me to work with in-depth knowledge about health concerns and related issues including life-limiting illness, bereavement and the impact of caring for others. Unusually, I am also a qualified and registered social worker, these skills also extend to familial problems and interpersonal dynamics. I offer both short term counselling and longer-term psychotherapy to clients and couples with a range of challenges. I hold the following training: MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy (Middlesex University) BSc Sociology and Social Work (Bath University) Diploma in Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy (Metanoia Institute) Diploma in Mental Health (Bournemouth University) Registered Nurse (Mental Health) Registered Nurse (Physical Health) I am registered with: UK Council for Psychotherapists Nursing and Midwifery Council Social Work England I work with clients who have a range of difficulties including Issues Anxiety Depression Stress Addiction Adoption Alcohol Abuse Anger Management Antisocial Personality Asperger's Syndrome Behavioural Issues Bereavement Borderline Personality Codependency Coping Skills Divorce Domestic Abuse Domestic Violence Drug Abuse Family Conflict Feeling Sad Hoarding Infidelity Internet Addiction Life Transitions Low Self-esteem Marital and Premarital Medical Detox Men's Issues Obesity Obsessive-Compulsive (OCD) Oppositional Defiance Parenting Peer Relationships Relationship Issues School Issues Self Esteem Self-Harming Sexual Abuse Sexual Addiction Sleep or Insomnia Spirituality Sports Performance Stress Substance Abuse Suicidal Ideation Trauma and PTSD Weight Loss This is not an exhaustive list. Currently, my face to face practices currently in Bristol, Bath and Frome, is cancelled. These spaces offer very quiet and discreet environments. which are easily accessed by public transport and easy parking. My work with you is confidential and highly personalised. Do get in touch with me via a•••••@••••.com and we can discuss your needs and find a way forward. My fee rate is: Individuals: £70-£80 per session (dependent on length and time of day). Couples: £80-£100 per session (dependent on length and time of day). If you have a budget you are working to, please talk to me about this and I will try to help you work within the budget available.

What do you love most about your job?

What I love about my job is supporting people to transform their lives, feeling more content and happier. Also helping people deal with what is sometimes life long problems which affect their lives and how they interact with people. Often sharing some of the more difficult things in life is the first step in moving on from what been darkness in your life. However, where there is darkness there is always the other side of the coin which is light and hope. Even those who are facing the most dreadful situations, often do so from a place of having survived. The key to taking life forward is to live and be the best version of you. That best version will not be static, but grow as therapy progresses. Change is possible.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I have spent a lifetime working for the NHS and still do. I have held numerous roles from practitioner to manager. However, my preference is working face to face with individuals and couples. It is an absolute joy to see the changes and insights that can be brought about by the right therapuetic engagement. It is hard work for both of us, but rewarding.

Why should our clients choose you?

I am highly qualified and have significant experience in working both privately and within the NHS.
I will always work with you in a gentle but challenging way, as I believe this facilitates your personal growth.
I offer flexibility in appointments wherever I can.
I have a proven track record of working with people through crises and with long term problems.
I offer one-off crisis sessions
I never ask a client to review me on any site, as our work is confidential.

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.
