About me

I am an experienced counsellor, psychotherapist and psychologist who has been working in private practice since 2008.  During this time I have helped adults and young people that have had experience of mental illness, manage sexual health issues, gender and LGBTQ+, relationship issues, abuse and trauma, dealing with cancer, loss and, of course, resilience.  A full list of areas I can help with can be found below.

Over the years, I have developed a range of counselling expertise having worked for several charities such as Macmillan Jersey, Brighter Futures, Brook Jersey, Victim Support and Rape Crisis, Jersey Focus on Mental Health, Rethink severe mental illness, and Hereford and Worcester Lesbian and Gay Switchboard.  I also sit on the board of My Voice, an independent advocacy charity for mental health in Jersey.

I work holistically, so discussions about health and wellbeing are part of my approach. My counselling style is Existential; rather than seeing people in terms of symptoms or diagnosis, it centres around how we see the world and our individual experiences of it.  Surrounding all of this, I offer a warm and friendly approach and will do my best to put you at your ease.

Contact me via the contact form and then we can have a chat on the telephone before meeting up in person.

Testimonials

“Georgina helped me massively with a range of issues. Her approach is calming, open and she listens to everything you say thoroughly. The techniques that Georgina taught me to deal with anxiety I use daily. I never felt like my feelings were invalid or strange.  I felt valued, supported and most importantly listened too when I had counselling.  I left each appointment with what felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders.  I would recommend Confidential Counselling to anyone who needs it.”


“I still remember that horrible fear and anxiety I had back then, my Husband made the phone call to my Mother that I wanted to kill myself, it’s a phone call no Mother wants to receive.  It was at this point I knew I needed professional help.

I researched online and I came across Georgina and I am so glad I did, making that first initial appointment was difficult, it’s hard sometimes to admit that you need help, it was hard to see how my behaviour was hurting those closest to me.

Meeting Georgina for the first time was the turning point in my road to recovering from the trauma I was going through.”


“When I didn’t know who to talk to or even what to say I found Georgina.  She never pushed or probed just allowed me to talk about what I needed to talk about and in that very moment helped heal a rather large wound.

I would always recommend Georgina as a gentle person with very large shoulders”.
