Geoff’s Work History

Geoff Miles

 

Having had six years of experience working with children, he broadened his area of expertise by working with offenders of all ages, and families going through acrimonious divorce. By 1990, Geoff had accumulated a store of knowledge about human behaviour, personality and the psyche, through his studies and experientially. Working with dysfunctional families, disadvantaged, disaffected and abused children, and offenders of all types.

In 1991 worked as a Counsellor alongside his full-time job as a Social Worker and joined the Child Protection Investigation Team, investigating charges of child abuse and interviewing the victims and the perpetrators. Involved in studies in Child Protection at Leicester University.  Since this time, Geoff  has spent many years working with children who face difficulties in their lives. These include, Looked After Children (children in care), the Youth Offending Team (YOT), Hospital Schools, Adoption Services and Social Services’ Children & Families Team.

He studied as a Psychotherapist covered such areas as Humanistic, Existential, Psychoanalytic, Behavioral, Cognitive, Eclectic and Integrative Theory and Procedure. This reflected his earlier work, especially in crisis intervention, where a quick response was needed and a comprehensive “tool kit” of skills enabled him to easily meet his clients’ needs.

To support his Psychotherapy training Geoff went on to complete Qualifications in Hypnotherapy and Regression and  developed and facilitated workshops and lectures at Bath University, Wiltshire Colleges, the BACP and into the Corporate Market.

In 1996, Geoff set up in Private Practice.
