Geoff McNulty is Senior Lecturer Education (Guidance and Counselling) and Program Manager for the Master of Guidance and Counselling Course on the JCU Singapore Campus. This is his second time at the University in Singapore. Occupying the same role for a three year period before, he then took some time out for his own professional development, going back to clinical practice as a Supervisor of Counsellors/Psychotherapists in the UK for a while.

He first trained as an English teacher, then as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist and has accrued over four decades of experience, predominately with adult learners across multiple disciplines and within teacher-training, trainer-training and a diverse array of vocational staff training environments. Here the emphasis has been on Personal and Professional Development, Continuing Education, Lifelong Learning and Adult Learning within the context of Continuing Professional Development.

He has specialised particularly in the field of facilitation, experiential and therapeutic approaches to enhancing self-insight and applied professional learning for individuals and groups/teams within a multi-disciplinary approach.

Alongside this, he is a Senior Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist and Supervisor with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). He has been a Practitioner, Supervisor and Counselling trainer over thirty five years now and his first and then ongoing BACP Accreditation spans thirty years.

He has previously occupied Senior posts in Higher and University settings within England and Scotland in the fields of Counselling and Human Relations in Education training and he has also been self-employed over substantial periods, running his own training and consultancy business and involving the design and delivery of human relations staff training within public sector, corporate, voluntary and charitable organisation settings.
