Georgina is a qualified and experienced relationship counsellor and psychosexual therapist working in central London.
When communication and trust have broken down, where there is conflict or where the partners are struggling with painful and uncomfortable feelings, Georgina can help couples to reconnect and rebuild their relationship in a safe, supportive and non-judgemental environment.
Where a relationship has already irretrievably broken down and a couple are facing separation and/or divorce, she can help them (or an individual partner) to separate in a healthy and constructive way enabling them to move forward with their lives.
Even in loving relationships the sexual relationship can break down for any number of reasons. This can have a profound effect on the functioning of a couple and their ability to relate to one another both emotionally and physically. Through an integrated programme, specially tailored to meet the needs of each couple, Georgina can help them to rebuild the intimacy through a combination of relationship counselling to resolve underlying issues and a course of mindful behavioural therapy, comprised of a series of exercises which the couple undertake at home between sessions.

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.
