Kingsfold Counselling

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)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
