When you are dealing with strong emotions it takes 15-20 minutes to warm up and 15-20 minutes to cool down which means that with traditional 45-minute sessions the session is over just when you are beginning to get to the root.

What do you love most about your job?

One of the things that I like most about doing the type of intensive work that we do is that I get to see people come in with painful experiences and emotional baggage that has crippled them for years or decades and see them go from a ’10' all the way down to a ‘0' in just a few sessions,. This is great and fantastic and it makes it really easy to get up and go to work in the morning. I look forward to being the baggage handler who specializes in helping you lose your baggage. You know how some McDonald’s restaurants have a sign outside showing how many billions of burgers have been sold. I have a McDonald’s counter in my head that counts the amount of baggage that I help people lose. This is how I measure my success and the success of my practice. This is my true bottom line, if we have gotten rid of a lot of baggage and moved the McDonald’s counter a lot in a week, then we had a good week.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Years ago, I went through a career crisis. I had become a psychologist so that I could help people make life altering changes – but I wasn’t seeing those kind of changes in my clients or in my supervisor’s clients. I gave myself 2 years to find what really worked or I was going to have to find another field of work.

I traveled across the country, getting different trainings and looking at different models. I took the most effective therapies and blended them together to get to the core in a fast and focused way, to resolve problems at the root instead of just putting a bandaid on them.

At first, I tried to squeeze everything into standard 45-minute sessions. That worked for some clients but many were still stuck. I started scheduling my clients who weren’t making real progress at the end of the day so that we could go over if needed. I found that just about all of my previously stuck clients started making real progress with 90-minute or 3-hour sessions.

So I reorganized the practice into what it is today – 90-minute sessions where we help you achieve up to a month’s worth of counseling in each session, 3-hour sessions where we help you achieve up to 3 month’s of counseling and ‘mental health days’ (a 3-hour session in the morning and another 3-hour session in the afternoon) where you can achieve up to 6 months of counseling in a single day.

I am here to do whatever-it-takes to help you to get get rid of your emotional baggage and to get you to the other side of your problems as quickly as humanly possible.

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.
