Hello, my name is Geraldine and I am an Accredited and Registered Counsellor and Psychotherapist with the BACP. I have been in Independent practice for over 17yrs.

Prior to my training as a psychotherapist, I worked in an acute hospital setting for many years as a Senior Sister. I have experience in both Private and National Health hospitals. I have found the integration of my Nursing and Psychotherapy professions, an enhancement to my skills and understanding of the nature of my work as a psychotherapist and counsellor.

Historically, western health care systems, created a strong split between the mind body systems to the detriment of patient care. Thankfully we are now starting to understand that both mental and physical health, affect each other directly, as well as indirectly.

This is not to blame anyone who suffers from ill health. We know that genetics play a factor in illness. Social and environmental factors are a big influence, and even with a healthy diet and good lifestyle, illness occurs.

However, we often ignore the little warning signs along the way and wait till our bodies cry out in pain. The price for ignoring, supressing, or distorting the body`s messages can be high. More and more we understand that life's experiences can play out, in either the function or malfunction of our bodies years later.

"Give sorrow words, the grief that does not speak, knits up the o`er wrought heart and bids it break" Shakespeare, Macbeth.

I am passionate about helping people gain a better knowledge about understanding themselves and their lives.
