What do you love most about your job?

The most exciting thing about my job is watching my clients experience relief from isolation and pain often from the very first session. To see the light of hope in their eyes and to witness their bodies relax as they experience feeling really seen and heard without judgement by me is the greatest honor I can describe.
Walking beside my clients as they face and release their fears and the residues from past traumas and disappointments is an incredible experience.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I worked for many years in both inpatient and outpatient clinical settings working with mental health and addictions which I loved . It became clear to me last year that the next right step for my growth as a clinician and as a person was to start my own business and offer the full range of services I can extend to my clients with greater depth and flexibility .

Why should our clients choose you?

You should choose me because I have fantastic skills,experience and strong intuition to add to the fabulous education and years in the field that I have accrued. I am committed to providing excellent and ethical best practice counseling to individuals and couples who need the expertise and quality of presence I can provide.
I am not typical or boring and for most of my clients I have been told that working with me was the piece they have been looking for.

Counselling FAQs

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.
