About me

Hello, and a warm welcome! My name is Georgia and I am a Counsellor registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

At a time when levels of uncertainty in life are greater than usual, we can feel extremely vulnerable. With the current national emergency, adjusting to many changes can be challenging... and this is where I am able to help you.

I offer both short-term and long term therapy for adults. I have experience working with various psychotherapeutic approaches including Narrative Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Psychodynamic Therapy.

Working together.

My aim is to provide a warm, calm and compassionate approach to help you cope better with the issues you are struggling with during these difficult times.

Our therapeutic sessions will be tailored to meet your unique needs, based on a shared understanding of your concerns and problems.

The first session is an assessment session where we will have the opportunity to explore in detail the reasons that bring you to therapy and we can think together about your needs and what therapy might offer you.

This allows us to identify your hopes and aims of therapy.  Following the assessment session and provided that we both wish to proceed, subsequent sessions occur on a weekly basis at a mutually agreed time.

I welcome any questions or concerns, so please do get in touch.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

As a response to the Covid-19, I am currently offering sessions only via skype/zoom or over the phone.
