Georgina Lynch Reg.MBACP Counsellor and Life Coach
I am a fully qualified, experienced Counsellor and have been practising since 2013. I hold professional memberships with the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy and Coaching, and work in accordance with their standards of practice and ethical framework.
Talking and sharing how you are feeling is a wonderful way to feel better and discover new ways to help yourself.
Working authentically I offer a safe and supportive therapeutic relationship, giving you the space to talk at your own pace, offering compassion for whatever you may be going through.
With my unique blend of professional skills and life experience I am able to offer a deep empathic understanding of the thoughts, emotions and behaviours associated with excessive worry, anxiety, depression, addictions, relationship troubles and difficult life issues.
If you are ready to create change I can help you to live a happy, healthy and fulfilling life.
'Georgina totally changed my life. I was unable to break free of the medication/depression cycle, but I am now off the meds and, although I know it will be a journey, I now have the tools to achieve a degree of content I never thought possible. Thank you so much Georgina!' BP
'Georgina has an approach that made me feel instantly at ease, she’s relatable, personable and understanding, an approach that I have never really experienced with various counsellors in the past. I have suffered with episodes of depression, anxiety and a great deal of self-doubt. Over time I have found it a struggle to open up to anyone particularly about what I find challenging in my day-to-day life until I met with Georgina two months ago. Our sessions have allowed me to understand some more about myself and to let go of the anxieties in my past stopping me from moving forward. My first session with Georgina, I believe marked the start of truly believing in my worthiness, I now have an appetite back for the things I love again and have confidence in my goals. She is also a great Yoga teacher might I add!' TB
'I was straight away confident in Georgina's professionalism and felt happy to talk about anything with her. I would whole heartedly recommend her to anybody, she has a positive attitude which can only instill positivity in her clients thank you for everything you have done for me i am very grateful". SF
'Georgina was patient, honest, kind, with some extremely worthwhile, life-changing techniques which I will continue to use as I move forward in my life. I fully recommend Georgina for anyone who is stagnant, unable to break free from past experiences and who want to live a happy and fulfilling life going forwards' TP
'Great experience, I definitely feel much better' SH

'Thank you very much Georgina, you've been a great help' NS
'Georgina actually showed understanding to what I was thinking and saying' Anon
'Georgina asked insightful questions which allowed me to start considering the situation from different perspectives and find solutions that I hadn’t thought of. She supported me in developing assertiveness skills (completely at my own pace) and also allowed me to talk and cry about crippling guilt that I have always carried with me. I learned the importance of self-care, despite being a mother to a child with disabilities. I discovered a love for Yoga, an exercise which helps me mentally and physically. I discovered various self-calming techniques which I can honestly say I still use at least once a day. I learned the important link between my mental health and my pattern of overeating and instead of feeling guilt I could feel compassion for myself' CO
