Georgina Lynch (RegMBACP) face to face, telephone & online Counsellor
I am a fully qualified and experienced counsellor, life coach, mentor and yoga teacher. I have a passion for working with anxiety, depression and addictions. I offer face to face, telephone and online counselling via email, Skype instant messaging, webcam or FaceTime. Dependent on individual need, both short or longer term work is possible.
Some of the issues that I have successfully worked with include:
Anxiety, depression, panic disorder, panic attacks, Bi-polar disorder/Manic Depression, obsessive compulsive thoughts, addictions, anger, frustration, relationship issues, family issues, affairs/betrayal, body image, overeating, low self-esteem, self-harm, IBS, assertiveness issues, lack of confidence, lack of self worth, not feeling good enough, fear of failure, loss of identity, discrimination, suicidal ideation and the trauma attached to abuse.
With my unique blend of professional skills and life experience I am able to offer a deep empathic understanding of the thoughts, feelings and behaviours associated with experiencing mental health problems, addictions, relationship problems and difficult life issues.
Through kind and compassionate guidance I provide a confidential and non-judgemental space to talk and feel valued. I always work in a safe, supportive and gentle way.
Please get in contact to discuss booking an initial session.
What my past client's say:
'Georgina totally changed my life. I was unable to break free of the medication/depression cycle, but I am now off the meds and, although I know it will be a journey, I now have the tools to achieve a degree of content I never thought possible. Thank you so much Georgina!' BP
'Great experience, I definitely feel much better' SH
'My first contact felt very relaxed, putting me at ease straight away. Thank you Georgina, you really have helped.' PS
'I found Georgina to be not only professional, but I was truly touched and grateful for her understanding and compassion' KB
'The first session was set up very quickly. Georgina has helped me for the last year and I am fully happy with the service she gave me. I found her to be truly understanding and pragmatic. I would recommend her to others, she is awesome!' CF
'Thank you very much Georgina, you've been a great help' NS
'Georgina actually showed understanding to what I was thinking and saying' Anon
'Whilst I originally approached Georgina to solely tackle overeating it quickly became apparent that the overeating was closely linked to my emotional state. Particularly in terms of lacking self-esteem and self-belief.Georgina allowed me to talk about issues at my own pace. She asked insightful questions which allowed me to start considering the situation from different perspectives and find solutions that I hadn’t thought of. She supported me in developing assertiveness skills (completely at my own pace) and also allowed me to talk and cry about crippling guilt that I have always carried with me. I learned the importance of self-care, despite being a mother to a child with disabilities. I discovered a love for Yoga, an exercise which helps me mentally and physically. I discovered various self-calming techniques which I can honestly say I still use at least once a day. I learned the important link between my mental health and my pattern of overeating and instead of feeling guilt I could feel compassion for myself' CO
