Georgina Green MA, Dip Met, UKRCP, BACP accredited
Old Hadlow House
I am an experienced practitioner with a Masters Degree in Counselling Studies from Nairobi,Kenya validated by Manchester University UK, - BACP Accredited and UKRCP registered counsellor and psychotherapist since 2011. I am currently at Sussex University working towards my accreditation as a CBT psychotherapist on a post graduate diploma/MA course.
I offer short-term counselling/psychotherapy often using a more practical approach and longer-term ongoing psychotherapy. I have been practising as a counsellor/psychotherapist in UK since 1999 before moving to Africa in 2001 for 14 years where I have had in-depth experiences of working among diverse cultures. This has led me to working compassionately with 'difference' and a deeper understanding of people and the uniqueness that they bring to therapy sessions. I am currently working in the NHS as a Trainee CBT Psychotherapist.
I live in Hadlow Down in East Sussex. This area serves Tunbridge Wells, Uckfield and is not far from Lewis.

I work as an integrative therapist, meaning that I use different tools and skills with the main focus of my work in aiming to meet the needs of my clients. The end goal is for an effective result in therapy. I work with my clients to set the goals that they aspire towards, also focusing on relationship building between my client and I. I have also worked for ChildLine and The Samaritans (1996) and having gained a diploma in child psychology together with the understanding of parenthood, I enjoy working with young people. I feel passionate about the work I do and I look forward to welcoming you to therapy.
