Therapy with Georgiana
I am passionate about helping people to flourish across their lifespan and to make a genuine difference in people’s lives. I specialise in children, adolescents and adults who present with a range of diagnoses including anxiety and depression. I have a particular interest in child development and secure attachment, and in later life mental health and brain fitness.
I adopt an integrated approach to best fit the unique needs of my clients. I have experience and in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Emotion Focused Therapy (Attachment & Schema) and Solution Focused Brief Therapy (conflict resolution and problem solving). I enjoy working with children, adolescents, and adults, and I look forward to working with you.
