Geoff Holmes Counselling & Consultancy MBACP (Accred)
I am an experienced counsellor and I offer counselling in three professional settings, Cirencester Town Centre, Swindon’s Old Town area and Fairford, Gloucestershire. My experience of 25 years in talking therapies has taught me that it can be something major or sometimes relatively small that prevents us coping as effectively as we want to. I believe we all have strengths and resilience with which we can reconnect when time and care are invested by client and counsellor.
Clients and colleagues tell me I am warm and approachable as well as being focussed in identifying how best clients can be supported and empowered.
Sometimes just a few sessions help the process of regaining control of ourselves and of our situation. While I have specialised in the area of workplace counselling, including stress management, I am happy to discuss with you any counselling needs, requiring either brief or longer-term support; you can be sure I will be clear with you if I don’t believe I have the skills or appropriate experience to support you.
I have been providing clinical supervision to counsellors for the past 18 years and I welcome discussions with counsellors or other professionals in the helping professions who are looking for this kind of expertise.
My own business website tells you more about me, my background and skills. Please find me at: www.geoffholmescc.co.uk
Please feel free to call me on 07802 229125 if you’d like to discuss counselling or email me

For 18 years (1998-2016) I held senior clinical posts in UK employee assistance service companies. I have developed a good understanding of both what individuals need to have their own counselling needs met and also what organisations need to support their employees effectively.
