George Bird Reg.BACP, Dip.Couns.
Life’s rich tapestry can be challenging at times. You might be feeling lost, low, or confused. If this rings true for you I may be able to help.
I offer a safe space, full of warmth and understanding. Together we can explore your inner world, and think about how the challenges you are facing are impacting you. We’ll work to help you tackle whatever life throws at you and move towards what it is you want to achieve.
I work in a directive and non-judgmental way and I have deep compassion for my clients. I believe that everyone has the capacity to fulfil their potential, to feel they are living life to the full and to find inner contentment. I am fully committed to helping you find yours.
I have struggled with anxiety for several years, but it came to a point where it was impacting every aspect of my life and making it difficult to function. I sought help from George and felt immediately understood. He helped me put words on what I was feeling and taught me concrete strategies to deal with my spiralling thoughts. Over the course of several months, I went from being completely subdued by my own feelings to being in control of my own journey. The sessions with George have helped me make tremendous changes in my life such as quitting a horrible job and starting my own business. I would never have had the courage and determination to do this without George's patience. Celine, Nov, 2018
