What do you love most about your job?

As humans, we have an innate desire to have a purpose in life and to feel like our existence had meaning on this earth when we die. That is the feeling I get when engaging with unique people in sessions. The feel of contributing to the big scheme of things no matter how small.

What inspired you to start your own business?

We all have our set up of strengths skills and standards . But if not put in the correct environment these strengths are a often missed opportunities and are overlooked. I believe that starting a practice was creating an environment where my strengths can flourish the best way possible.

Why should our clients choose you?

I find meaning in walking alongside clients on their path of rediscovery. I aim to create a safe space for you to fully express yourself. Your wellbeing and mental health are important, and I believe we should prioritise it. The goal is for you to walk out with a sense of self-actualisation while also being equipped to face daily struggles.

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

Yes, online counselling sessions are available via Google meet. This is an easy platform to navigate and secure to maintain client confidentiality.

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

Predominantly, I held my sessions online during covid-19. As situations got better I slowly started having sessions face-to-face on Thursdays with well-regulated safety protocols put in place.

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.
