Get in touch
My name is Guy Payne, I am a counsellor and psychotherapist, welcome to my web site.

I started life in Lagos, Nigeria in 1965 and I first came to live in the UK in 1972 at the age of seven. I still remember adjusting to my new life Dorset and the sun and the sea remain important parts of my life today.

I started my professional life in 1989 as a teacher of English, however, I have always had a passion for helping people of all ages to feel heard and understood and in 2001, I qualified as a therapist and counsellor.

Since then I have gained extensive experience and training and I still wake up each day feeling excited by my profession.

My goal is simple, to provide you, or someone you love, with counselling that quickly and comfortably enables you to authentically interpret your feelings and to help you find compassionate and useful ways to stay emotionally happy and healthy.

Please take a few moments to look through my site, you can contact me at any point to have any question you may have answered and you will find links above that will conveniently direct you to your specific areas of interest.

If you would like to find out how I can help you or someone you love then please get in touch with me. You are welcome to send me an email, giving me as little or a much information as you would like or you are more than welcome to contact me by phone for an initial discussion.

We can talk through the counselling process and you will have time to have any questions you may have about counselling answered.

I am registered and Accredited with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) for my work with:

  • Adults
  • Couples
  • Families
  • Children and Young People

I chose to align myself with them because The BACP is the largest counselling organisation in the UK at the moment and they work closely with the government to ensure you receive the highest quality of service.

Why not take this opportunity to review the BACP’s rigorous criteria for accrediting therapists

My BACP membership number is 538561 and my registration number is 020022

I undertake a yearly DBS check (previously CRB). This demonstrates my eligibility to support and help vulnerable people including children.
