About me

I am an experienced counsellor and psychologist who has been working in private practice for the past 13 years. 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 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.

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”.

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.

The amount you chose may depend on what you would like to deal with, one may be enough for you or you may wish to take a longer term approach.  You chose what is right for you.

One counselling appointment = £75
