About Me - Geoff Thompson

geoff_thompson_profileHello again, let me tell you something about myself.

I am an experienced trainer, facilitator, life coach, counsellor and psychotherapist.

My professional background is in human resources. I enjoyed a successful career in plc organisations such as Allied Lyons, TI Group and Glynwed International.

A key area of responsibility was the training and development of senior and middle managers. I was instrumental in introducing coaching skills and practices into the culture of the above organisations.

A significant step on the journey of fulfilling my own potential was re-entry into learning in the 1990's. I was awarded an MSc in Change Agent Skills and Strategies from the University of Surrey which hasa 'world class' reputation for the training of facilitators. The focus of study wasdeveloping the skills and strategies for change in individuals, groups and organisations.

I subsequently trained as a Gestalt Psychotherapist at the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute in Nottingham. The studies were validated by the University of Derby from where I received an MA, with distinction, in Gestalt Psychotherapy. I was also awarded the university prize for applied research. On completion of my MA studies in 2002, I set up in private practice as a counsellor and psychotherapist. The practice is now based in the rural village of Trysull near Wolverhampton. I also have a practice at Stratford-upon-Avon in Warwickshire that is located coveniently just one mile from the town centre.

I gain immense satisfaction from working with clients and seeing them overcome their problems and being able to live the life they choose.

Feel free to contact me if there is anything else that you would like to know about my professional background.
