About me

I am an experienced counsellor and I offer counselling in Swindon’s Old Town area. My experience of almost 30 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. I have been providing clinical supervision to counsellors for the past 21 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

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

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.

Accessibility

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.
