What do you love most about your job?

I enjoy interacting with each client knowing that each person has a unique experience, viewpoint and background. I learn from my clients as much as they learn about themselves through the self awareness created in the sessions. Seeing the shift from hopelessness to hopeful, from brokenness to excitement for the future is something that inspires me everyday.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I realised that working for other companies limited the dreams and potential I had inside me to go in the directions I felt passionate about. Working for myself means that I am able to make judgement calls, decisions and mistakes for myself, instead of feeling limited in the direction I would like to follow. My aim is make counselling and wellness accessible to everyone to the best of my ability, through various avenues, such counselling, online and face to face, workshops and support groups which will be available in the near future.

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

Yes, I am able to meet with clients on a Zoom platform or face to face in my office.

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

I have a office space which is easy to keep sanitised and clean. The airflow in the room is good and I provide hand sanitising before each session. Masks are worn on arrival and social distancing is practiced throughout the session.

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.
