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. 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.
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. I also specialise in the use of Expressive Writing as a therapeutic intervention which can offer you an alternative or additional way of expressing, processing and sharing difficult feelings.
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.
In addition to my private practice, I have spent the last years working in NHS primary care clinics and specialist charities where I offered therapy sessions to adults affected by depression, anxiety disorders, stress in the work place, work-life imbalances, phobias and fears, low self-esteem and confidence issues, relationship issues, bereavement, grief and loss.

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.
