Tracy Georgio MSc., P.G.Dip Couns., Dip.Sup., FRTC.
Managing emotions, anxieties and sudden life changing events can be extremely difficult- feeling alone, isolated or rejected intensifies the hurt with friends and family often complicating the situation. The opportunity to talk to someone in a safe, non judgment environment can be incredibly empowering, gaining, greater self awareness and understanding. I am a warm, non judgemental empathic therapist, I offer a safe and comfortable calm space in which together we can start to explore your presenting difficulties.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified Psychotherapist, Counsellor and Supervisor with a Master’s Degree in Therapeutic Counselling. I am an Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and am also entered on their accredited register.
As a Senior Specialist Therapist working within the NHS, I have extensive experience working with varying degrees of emotional complexities, this has given me an in-depth knowledge of mental health, diagnosis and various treatments. I am an integrative therapist which means I use a variety of techniques to best suit you the client.
Having actively supported the work of the charity ‘One in Four’, both as a therapist and now as a Supervisor, I have a vast experience of the complexities that shadow survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse (CSA) and other sexual traumas. I have experience of working with both male and female clients and more recently children.
Having worked for over 12 years in both a Primary and Secondary School settings has meant I have acquired a vast amount of knowledge, of the extensive issues that can face children and their families. Training at St. Christopher’s Hospice and being awarded a Diploma in Childhood Bereavement, has meant I have been able to help families come to terms with issues such as learning difficulties, varying anxieties, low self-esteem and self harm.
A recent NHS placement has meant I’m working increasingly with University students; the pressures of a demanding schedule often causes students to feel anxious and even depressed. As a qualified therapeutic coach, I am able to incorporate the empathic and non-judgmental techniques of a therapist with the focus, goal setting and motivational skills of a coach.
