Geoff Kaile aims to provide a non-judgemental space for clients to identify and come to terms with problems with life, no matter what they maybe. Taking a philosophical and trauma-aware approach, Geoff works to find how best to challenge problematic thinking, feeling and behaviour at a pace and level that balances safety, containment and empathetic understanding.
Coming from a software design background in advertising, finance and government, Geoff has particular interest in perception and balancing change with stability. His own experience enables him to fully accept and understand both the physical and mental impacts that life’s pressures can create. In particular, he is interested in the long-term consequences of trauma and neglect in dissociation. Geoff’s considers his approach as a journey to understand his client’s range and depth of experience so he can gain greater awareness of how they can cope both emotionally and physically. Working alongside his clients, he explores their self-awareness in relation to others and within the unique world in which his clients live. He works to support his clients through acceptance and change, so they can achieve better life balance, increased fulfilment and general well-being.
Geoff is currently studying towards a doctorate in existential therapy, with research into adverse childhood experiences. He is an existential therapist and a registered member of the UKCP, BACP, BABCP, UKPTS and ISSTD. He works within The Awareness Centre’s NHS Wandsworth counselling service.
