Flickering Mind Holistic Therapies

Inspired by my own struggles with mental health from a young age I knew that my calling was working with people and focusing on well-being. I continued to blog while returning to university to qualify as a Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. I have worked throughout different areas of the sector before taking the plunge to step out on my own. From youngsters wanting guidance to those with long term illness to people in the criminal justice system, I'll never turn anyone away who's bravely reached out for help. I value individual difference, honesty, integrity, finding your own path, standing out from the crowd, connection and relationships. I strongly believe people can be empowered to find their own answers. I know that I am not a fixer and may not have all the answers, although I may be able to help with a suggestion or two. I know that I am okay to sit with people in chaos. I can tolerate stuckness and I'm not afraid to be afraid or walk into a dark place.

What do you love most about your job?

What I love most about my job is the working with people. I get to meet so many different people from different walks of life. Not only do I love helping these people but there's also always something I learn from each client I see.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I was inspired to start my own business because I could see how impactful mental health support is and how limited it can be when it is given through charities or NHS. They can include long waiting lists and the content of the therapy can be limited to what they are commissioned to supply. I wanted to break this cycle and offer quick appointments and broad resources to make a positive impact.

Why should our clients choose you?

I have been in the shoes of a client before, my own struggles with mental health has given me the ability to truly understand how clients are feeling and what can make a difference. I want everyone who comes to me, either in my professional life or personal life, to feel I come from a place of acceptance with no judgement.

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

Appointments booked for telephone or Zoom require payment through PayPal on booking, if appointments are cancelled within 24 hours of booking 50% of payment will be refunded, cancellations with more than 24 hours notice will receive a full refund.

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

The therapy room receives a full clean between clients and I regularly complete rapid COVID tests to ensure I am safely delivering appointments. I also am able to offer appointments over telephone or Zoom.

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.
