I believe all people are equal, and treat all my Clients with respect regardless of Status, Class, Culture, Religion or Ethnicity. Your sessions will take place in a private, peaceful, warm and comfortable room. whatever you tell me is confidential, and will remain within the counselling room.

"My time in counselling with Georgina was truly inspiring. I learnt a lot about myself and how to manage my anxiety and life's obstacles. Life is a challenging journey, and my experience of counselling has really helped to build my toolbox and provide me with everything I need right now. The journey doesn't end, but I feel well equipped and much more confident in myself and my future. Georgina was a true blessing to me. A living guardian angel, and I'll be forever grateful for all she helped me with. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
"Georgina has shown me I may give myself permission to grieve and don't have to feel I should be further forward by now"
"Georgina's expertise and willingness to help and understand my feelings/emotions helped to see myself as being this happy person and not a hate filled person"
