Hello and welcome
Welcome to Talking and Healing. I’m Geraldine - a qualified counsellor and coach, offering one-to-one therapy sessions in London Bridge, Dalston and Leigh-on-Sea, Essex.
I work in an integrative way, blending elements of person-centred, existential and psychodynamic theory, working in a creative way to suit your needs. My training also includes a qualification in coaching – because, as well as your past, I’m also deeply interested in your future. I want to know what you want out of life and to work with you to discover how to get there.
I know from personal experience that starting counselling or coaching can be daunting - and it takes courage to take that first step. It's a process that requires commitment, effort and belief that you can feel better than you do now. However, I also know that you can feel the benefits from day one. Talking things through can provide a lightness; a sense of relief that you are understood, and that your situation can improve. I will join you on the journey and work with you side-by-side each step of the way. It will be a privilege get to know you and your story and to bear witness to how it unfolds.
What I offer
In our sessions, we will work together to untangle your story, working out where you need additional support and what changes, if any, you are looking to make to your life. I will provide a warm, safe and compassionate space in which you can open up, air your thoughts and feelings, and share anything that's on your mind.
I am here to listen first of all, and to help create a strong, supportive relationship in which you feel heard and understood, Beyond that, I will use gentle probing and questioning to help uncover new ways of thinking. If it's right for you, more proactive techniques and exercises will be incorporated to coach you towards achieving your goals.
Get in touch if you're ready to take the next step in your journey.
