What do you love most about your job?

I have always been interested in Psychology and how it can be used in a way that empowers change and awareness in individuals and in groups.
I have to be honest and say i have sat in the clients chair myself and i know intuitively how it feels to be in a place that is very distressing, painful and sometimes confusing.
I find it to be an incredible honour to be able to walk alongside the same path as my clients and to be able to facilitate change in a
very positive and constructive ways.
It is essential that i am quickly able to build a trusting and worthwhile relationship with my clients to enable them to see the way forward.
Working collaboratively in a caring, accepting and non-judgemental safe environment - Always looking at the best outcome for the person.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I am very aware of long waiting lists in the Charitable and government sectors and i like to be able to offer a no waiting list policy so people in distress can access a service within days.
It can be a long and painful process for people to have to wait up to 6 months for an available slot in an agency.
The counsellors who work for ASCA are consumate professionals who have worked in very different areas of the helping professions and have been very carefully selected on behalf of all of our clients.
I have a long standing passion for my work at ASCA and believe very strongly in compassion and being there for a client when they need guidance.

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.
