What do you love most about your job?

I love counselling and coaching, as there is nothing that feels better than helping clients find the solutions to what might be holding them back from living the life they desire. It is often a journey of both highs and lows and it can be difficult to realise that sometimes change takes time, and just by taking little baby steps change will be possible.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Having worked as a counsellor and a coach for many years within GPs, Social Care and currently with professional with work related stress, it was always my personal passion to have my own business one day. During the COVID lockdown I decided to follow my heart and I set up Colette Life Solutions which initially started with me counselling and coaching clients who were struggling with having a healthy lifestyle and loneliness as a result of the pandemic. This has enabled to launch my business working evenings and on at the weekend.

Why should our clients choose you?

I create a warm, safe and confidential space which is non-judgmental, to enable clients to explore what might be going on for them.

It is important that you to choose the right counsellor for you, I will therefore have an initial free call with you to hear a bit more about the problem and share with you what I offer. If you choose me I promise that I will listen to you, give empathy and warmth as I genuinely care for people and really love helping them to improve their lives. As a integrative counsellor and NLP practitioner I am open to trying different techniques, if something hasn't worked we just try something else, it's all about supporting you to get your desired outcome. Everyone is unique so the same thing doesn't work for everyone. What is important is that you are clear about the outcome that you want, if you are not clear I can do values based work with you to help you, once you are clear, I can support you to figure out the steps to get you there, and help you put them into place.

Helping you is so important to me as I had low self esteem, low self confidence, low self worth and anxiety for many years. As a result I know first hand how these sort of problems can really affect a persons quality life and prevents them from having, being, doing and feeling how they want. Through NLP I was able to change my life and I want to share what I have learnt with you.

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

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.
