About me

I am a qualified, experienced counsellor and supervisor, having retrained as a counsellor following a career in teaching. I bring relational skills to my work from experience of family life and community involvement.

I am based in Melksham near Bath. My counselling room is quiet and private. Off road parking available and disabled access to the ground floor room.

Both short term and open ended counselling sessions are offered to suit the clients needs.

I am familiar with many approaches to counselling and use an integrated model with my clients. The therapeutic relationship is key to my work and I work within the boundaries of counselling to engage with a wide range of issues that bring the client to counselling.

I work with adult individuals, couples, and some young people who can engage with the counselling process.

I have delivered training workshops and I can facilitate group work. I supervise qualified counsellors and those who are undertaking counselling training.

My aim is to offer an accessible, flexible service that meets the needs of my clients.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Qualified in 2009 with a diploma in counselling awarded by NOCN level  4.
  • Creative interventions in counselling culminating in a CPCAB certificate awarded by Barnabas Counselling trainers in 2013.
  • I qualified as a supervisor with a level 5 certificate in 2012.
  • Training for trauma and dissociative disorders through Deep Release Ltd has allowed me to develop further skills which can help those with post traumatic disorders and attachment issues.
  • I have worked in schools with students. I have worked with the disabled in their own homes. Counselling by skype or facetime could be considered if face to face sessions were impossible.
  • Counselling work has been in association with Counselling organisations such as J10 Counselling Service where I was assistant manager in Walsall. Now I work privately most of the time which allows more flexibility.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
