Aileen George - Counsellor

Aileen George Dip.Counselling, MBACP   

Depression, anxiety, difficulties with relationships, stress, burn-out and physical illness are all common responses to this kind of neglect. Often people don't even know how to begin to deal with these responses. Counselling is a highly effective way of helping to explore feelings and thoughts. Some of these are just out of our awareness – and counselling can help to focus on them. By becoming more self-aware we can then take steps to address the areas of our lives that are causing difficulties.  Counselling is effective when a person is understood and accepted. Confidentiality and non-judgement are offered so that a person can be honest with themselves. Counsellors do not give advice or direct people, instead they help people to find their own resources.

Please speak to your GP or contact Aileen directly to discuss more and/or make an appointment. She is available at Richmond Surgery, by appointment, on Thursdays and Fridays but has other clinic venues available.
