J Snyder Therapeutic Services


Our practice offers counseling, psychotherapy, and psychiatry. We have numerous therapists whom offer a variety of treatments of an individual, couples, family, and group nature. We want your experience to be qualitatively better than those at practices you might have received services from in the past, starting with your first contact to our office staff. We take the time to gather information unique to your situation prior to attempting to match you with a competent therapist, and begin forming a trusting relationship from the gate. Our practice is highly cohesive and consists of therapists that respect one another personally and professionally, engaging in ongoing contact and supervision to ensure that you receive as high a quality treatment as possible. We look forward to being able to assist you in achieving your objectives. Sincerely, J Snyder Therapeutic Services

What do you love most about your job?

Being able to sit in stilled time while attempting to engage in a genuine experience with other individuals is what appeals to me most. I feel that people subconsciously hold conversations that are inauthentic and loaded with defenses, masking their true feelings, impulses, thoughts, and fantasies. I prefer to develop a trusting relationship with others where they feel comfortable discussing such material, rather than generating insultingly simple interventions that fail to honor the uniqueness and complexity of the patient.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I wanted to run a practice based on integrity, transparency, an internal positive energy, and quality. I wanted to be aware of all the happenings at the practice to ensure that the values and founding principles were upheld. I saw many practices that based the quality of the clinician on the number of patients they saw in a given day, rather than looking at the methodologies employed and the reasons underlying the success of the treatment.

Why should our clients choose you?

We are a co-owned practice by individuals that intrinsically believe in the process of psychotherapy and the integrative potential of sitting for a quality treatment. We take every measure to make your experience positive, from your initial phone call, to the service dogs we have integrated with the practice (you don't need to be around them if you do not want to), to our relaxing office environment.

Counselling FAQs

Expand all

Your expert Counsellor will be able to advise you on the full range of services available and will be able to advise on what is most suitable. Use Bark to get free quotes and schedule an appointment today.

At your appointment, you will be encouraged to talk about your feelings and emotions with a trained Counsellor who will listen and support you without judging or criticising.
The therapist can help you gain a better understanding of your feelings and thought processes and find your own solutions to problems. However, they will not usually give advice or tell you what to do. The Counsellor might sum up what they understand you have been saying so that they can help you to form a plan of action.

Counselling can take place in a number of ways. These include:

  • Face to face session

  • Group session

  • Phone session

  • Email session

  • Online through live chat services or video conferencing software

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 Counsellor.

You can be confident that any of the Bark local Counsellors listed will give you a reliable and efficient service to help you feel better.

You could look for Counsellors that are accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA) which means that they have met the PSA’s required professional standards to practise.

Before you choose a Counsellor, you could read testimonials and read details of the issues they can help with on their website.

You could also look at their profile page on Bark and check out reviews from past customers too.

Counselling can help with many issues. These include the following:

  • Mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety or eating disorders.

  • Physical health conditions such as infertility.

  • Difficult life events such as a bereavement, a relationship breakdown or work-related stress.

  • Dealing with difficult emotions such as low self-esteem or anger.

  • Sexual identity issues.

  • Divorce.

  • Redundancy and work issues.

  • Phobias and fears.

Absolutely! Many Counsellors provide their services remotely via an online video call or the telephone. Not only is it more convenient, but it's also the preferable option for many people who would feel more comfortable holding the session from the comfort of their own home.
