Hi, and a warm welcome. I'm a qualified counsellor and have been for a number of years offering therapeutic support for adults, adolescents, children and families either together or individually, in my private practice and within primary and secondary schools. I can offer support too many for many reasons. I have two locations; Quedgeley and Stroud both a welcoming safe space. I always welcome a free initial email or chat or meet and briefly discuss ways of support that suits all. This can also give you all an opportunity to see the space, meet and talk with me with no obligation. This helps in deciding what is best for you.

In troubling times it can sometimes feel like you are alone & seeking help might feel really difficult. Just having a space to make sense of the thoughts that jumble around our heads is invaluable. Perhaps you need to understand yourself, your relationships or events from your past. Sometimes all we need is someone to just listen and hear our story. Counselling promotes insight, fosters self-awareness & creates a stronger, more resilient sense of self. This powerful combination can be the kick-start for the changes in your life you wish to make - sometimes even the smallest changes can make a huge difference in your well-being.

I work with individuals and I am also a Relate trained couple therapist. Are you feeling stuck at the moment with nowhere to turn and get the feeling nobody will understand? Maybe your self esteem has hit rock bottom and you lack drive and motivation to face your next move. Or do you carry a heavy emotional burden from your past that prevents you from finding happiness? You may be a couple who just don't seem to work anymore, maybe find it difficult to communicate or are getting over an infidelity or some other big obstacle. I will do my best to help you find that spark again or discover a new path which may be richer than before.

You know you are suffering and everything you have tried so far hasn’t worked. You want help. You keep having the same kinds of experiences over and over again and you are baffled as to how to break the cycle. You know you’ve got some baggage, but you’re not sure what all is in there or how much it’s really weighing you down. You hear other people talk about counselling, maybe you’ve even tried therapy before. You’re considering it now and that is a brave first step.

Welcome. There are times when something is troubling you and you are unable to think about and work through those issues on your own. It is never easy to ask for help and perhaps you have been struggling with issues and painful feelings for a while. I can provide a professional and safe environment in which you can speak openly and confidentially about whatever is on your mind. I am trained to listen to you in a way that can help you recognise the source of your present difficulties, which may be rooted in the past. This process can offer the possibility of long lasting change.

I understand that sometimes life feels too difficult . You might be having some trouble in a relationship, feel unhappy or stressed at work, or perhaps something from your past is affecting your life today. Whatever it is, I provide a safe, warm place in which you can talk things through with me in confidence and where you will be listened to with compassion, understanding and without judgement. I believe in the power of relationship: building a relationship with you where trust and acceptance facilitate open communication about the things that are troubling you. I offer face to face, video, online (IM) and telephone counselling.

I am committed to working with individuals in a non judgmental, compassionate way that helps them to understand their current problems. I help individuals to formulate their problems from a psychological perspective which creates a non blaming understanding, which fosters hope and a sense of control that individuals may feel they are lacking. I aim to create a space in which it feels safe to bring distressing emotions, so they can be explored and understood. By doing this it is possible to identify what may be maintaining the problems and creates an opportunity for positive change.

Then welcome to Barry Cook 'The Tattooed Counsellor' When we feel this way our problems may be all mixed up growing bigger or unmanageable by the day. It could be that past or present experiences are causing us confusion & conflict. Maybe you would benefit from talking to someone who is not a part of your friends & family and will simply allow you to be you.

As a clinical psychologist, I consider myself to be something of an 'emotional detective!' I work with individuals and families at their own pace to explore and develop a shared understanding of how their experiences (past and present), perspectives, and environmental factors may be contributing to a particular difficulty such as anxiety or depression, before identifying and sharing new solutions to help overcome the problem. Sometimes, the process of talking openly can in itself be transformative as new meanings and stories emerge; other times specific skills and strategies might be used to create positive change and difference.

Do you constantly feel anxious and frustrated with yourself ? Do you keep repeating the same behaviour patterns ? There is a reason for this. I have helped many clients to work through traumatic life experiences. You can start again with a new self confidence that comes from a place of love rather than hate for who you are. Things do not have to stay the same. You can change how you feel about yourself and learn to accept yourself, even the bits you don't like ! You can learn to regulate your feelings and work with them rather than being afraid and controlled by them.

Are you feeling anxious, overwhelmed or worried? Perhaps your mood has been low for a while and you can't shift that feeling. Has something happened recently, or in the past that's affecting how things are for you today? Sometimes there may be a sense that life is lacking in meaning and direction. Maybe you want to make some changes but feel stuck in negative and destructive patterns of behaviour?

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Gloucester are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Gloucester then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Gloucester, or Child Psychologists in Gloucester.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Gloucester psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Gloucester specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
