We are shining a light on members of our incredible staff to get to know them better. Under the spotlight today is Guy Graham!


If you had to describe yourself in three words, what would they be?

Open, Friendly, Dad

What does your role entail?

The counselling service offers emotional support to patients and their families, friends and carers.

We provide 1:1 sessions and bereavement groups for both adults and children and our aim is to build a strong trusting non-judgemental relationship with our clients so they feel safe to explore and express their thoughts and feelings.

How did you come to work at Myton?

I first worked at Myton as a student counsellor on placement and then luckily a permanent job came up not long after I qualified.

If you had to describe Myton in three words, what would they be?

Comforting, Compassionate, Caring

What is a skill you’d like to learn and why?

Be the lead singer in a band. Would never have the confidence, wouldn’t be cool enough and I’m not a great singer but apart from that why not?

If you could have dinner with anyone, dead or alive, who would you pick and why?

Roger Federer because he seems to be such a nice bloke as well as being good at tennis.

What would be on the menu?

I’d be happy with most things just not custard, rice pudding or tuna. A hang up from school dinners.

If you could travel to any event past, present or future, what would it be and why?

I’d join Edmund Hilary & Sherpa Tenzing in the first ascent of Everest in 1953 because it’s the biggest event in mountaineering history and mountains play a big part in my life.

What do you like to do in your free time?

Would have to be something sporty or outdoorsy.

Playing tennis, cycling, running, triathlons and climbing mountains or skiing down them.

With a 4 year old, free time is more limited now, but hope to do these things with her at some point in the future.

What is your favourite film?
