Georgina Hayman MBACP
I am a Humanistic and Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist.
I work with Individuals and Groups.
Please see my website for more details.
Sometimes it is important to hear oneself talk and to give ourselves time to do so, in order to unravel the next steps in one's life.
I would hope that I would be able to hear you with acceptance and empathy and that together with some work, we would be able to begin something, end something or make something better.
I look forward to hearing from you.
