Georgie Manners - Transpersonal Integrative Psychotherapist
I work in a warm and supportive style, responding to you as an individual. I have experience dealing with life crises in relationships or professionally, with addictions, bereavement, depression, anxiety, low self esteem and ADHD. Having spent time in the creative industries I have a good understanding of the challenges within that sector. I also have experience with people in finance, business and law.
Mind and body:
I use the polyvagal theory for understanding the core physiological nervous states as a foundation to trauma-related conditions. I study neuro-biology and the impact it has on our behaviour. I invite clients to be curious about their own nervous states and reactions in order to guide them back to a state of calm.
Past and present:
Both are important. When it feels right for you, we can talk about the past and learn how it has caused patterns in your current life which you might want to break. We can also look at the present in order to find a deeper meaning and purpose in your everyday life.
If my clients are interested in the hybrid therapy I offer, I can in addition use transpersonal techniques to help liberate your true nature.
Training, qualifications & experience
Between 2015-2019 I trained at The College for Counselling and Psychotherapy (CCPE) in Little Venice, London. This involved 900 contact hours, including one six-day intensive, one residential weekend, 24 weekend seminars and 120 evening meetings spread over four years. The evening meetings include a period for lectures and group supervision. In addition, students undertake a minimum of 160 hours of individual therapy, at least 550 hours of supervised psychotherapy practice and 100 hours at an approved clinical placement, from which they submit case histories for assessment.
I held a placement at The Grove Practise in the West End and continued to see private clients after I qualified. I now have my own practise in Notting Hill Gate and Bayswater three days a week. I am able to see clients online also.
In addition to my psychological studies in the last five years, I have attended many extra workshops and events relating to the latest research in neuro-biology and complex trauma. The evidence based scientific research is very helpful when working with clients who are curious about their nervous bodies automatic responses to others and the environment, and how this effects behaviour.

Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
Neuroscience in action
I run a program called Resilience, which is based on the Polyvagal Theory. The objective is to become conscious of your automated nervous system in action. With this new awareness comes the opportunity for new considered reactions, responses and behaviours that suit your present life in a more productive way.
In addition we can explore transpersonal resources to support self and co-regulation.
This program can be run online using video call for one to one or small groups. Please contact me and we can discuss the details together.
Please contact me for further information about my fees. I can discuss concessions where appropriate.
