Hello my name is Georgina. I believe that personal development and change is a journey of mind and soul. I blend the counselling theories of Transactional Analysis, Person Centred Counselling  with the spiritual teachings and practices of Islam. I reverted to Islam over 13 years ago following the death of a family member. I suppose this was my 1st awakening towards my search for meaning. My education in Islam is more personal than formal,  I do consult Islamic Scholars for guidance and regard myself as a student of ilm (knowledge) I specialise my study towards  Tarbiyah and Tazkiyah which complements my education in Psychotherapy and Psychology.

I have experience treating depression, low mood, relationship issues, family tensions, life choices, stress and a range of low level mental health conditions. I also am involved with the running of a local mosque where I organise classes, events and support groups. Currently I am involved in a team which organises Islamic talks and courses on topics relating to Islamic Counselling. I also run a support group for converts/reverts.

Psychotherapy provides a neutral space where you can be comfortable expressing yourself and your needs, whilst being private and non-judgmental. Together we will explore what you want to resolve and create new visions towards a more balanced life.
