Do you feel like your world has been turned upside down? Everyone faces difficult life-changing events. Sometimes these are changes we didn’t want, and sometimes these are ones we did. Either way, change can make us feel lost, stuck, or without direction—and sometimes even guilty about how we are feeling. I specialize in helping people deal with the pain of loss and difficult changes. I am here to listen to your story and share your pain. I respect your loss, your confusion, and your concerns. I recognize that your pain is real and valid. I conduct individual and couples therapy with adults. My approach is centered on creating a non-judgmental, safe and supportive environment while pushing my clients to develop new ways of being. Through therapy we will discover both the personal and circumstantial barriers that are preventing you from being content and achieving your true potential, as well as exploring your strengths and resources that can assist you in becoming the best you possible.

What do you love most about your job?

The best part of my job is that I get to make a positive difference in people's lives. The nature of my works leads me to genuinely care about my clients. We develop a relationship such that I feel like I become a part of their lives--I get to experience an emotional intimacy with them that few others get to. And seeing them grow and improve their lives is truly rewarding.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I like my autonomy. I wanted to be free to practice with my clients in my unique way without concern for how a supervisor or institution was going to judge my approach. This allows to me emphasize the things that are important to me in therapy--my relationship with the client and working with clients that make other therapists uncomfortable in ways that are not your run of the mill therapy.

Why should our clients choose you?

What my clients most frequently say they appreciate about me specifically as a client is both how comfortable I make them feel about being themselves and how I do more than just listen. The uniqueness of my practice is in the way I challenge my clients to move passed where they have been stuck (sometimes for a very long time) in a way that demonstrates care for both the outcome of the work we do and for how supported they feel in the process.

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.
