Geoff’s Work History

In 2009 See For Miles Ltd was formed in partnership with Helen Payne-Kumar.   Offering a professional counselling, psychotherapy service which encapsulates counselling and therapy for individuals, couples, and families, and professional training for practitioners, supervision and staff support.

Geoff began his career training to be a teacher and working in children’s homes. He broadened his area of expertise by working with offenders of all ages, and families going through acrimonious divorce. Working with dysfunctional families, disadvantaged, disaffected and abused children, and offenders of all types.

In 1991 worked as a Counsellor alongside his role 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.  Working with children who face difficulties in their lives, which includes: 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 covering the frameworks of Humanistic, Existential, Psychoanalytic, Behavioral, Cognitive and Integrative Theory and Procedure. Thus developing 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.
