About Geof


My intention is to help you find new ways to see yourself and your possibilities, and then to accompany you on a journey of discovery. Using stories, metaphors, visualisation, meditation and approaches drawn from different psychotherapeutic traditions, I will help you to answer fundamental personal questions, such as “Who am I?”, “What makes me the person I am?” and “What would I like to have happen?”

Active for many years in diversity and environmental campaigning and advocacy, I believes in the transformational potential of human connection and compassion for the benefit of one another and the planet. I was a co-founder of Gift Based Counselling and Gift Based Coaching, and I volunteer as a counsellor and supervisor at the Mindful Therapies Centre in Newcastle city centre.

I am registered as a psychotherapeutic counsellor with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).

I work mainly online (usually over zoom), but do also offer some face-to-face sessions at the Mindful Therapies Centre in Newcastle upon Tyne.
