Georgetta Forster-Pert provides a safe environment where she listens to her clients in a supportive, emphatic and non-judgemental way. Georgetta aims to put across a genuine and mutual approach to the therapeutic relationship which builds up trust that will enable each client to explore the barriers that holds them back. Georgetta’s philosophy as a Humanistic Counsellor, is that each of the clients she works with, brings into the therapy room their own unique experience of how they view and understand the world, therefore deserves to be treated with respect and unconditional acceptance of who they are and what they say.
Georgetta works fundamentally, as a Humanistic Counsellor; believing that clients have the innate ability to grow. She also uses other effective interventions; such as Creative Art therapy to unravel what is suppressed in the subconscious mind or Compassion Focused Therapy to help problems associated with shame, anxiety and self-hate. These approaches are tailored to suit the needs of individual clients, in order to navigate he/she towards realising their full potential.
Georgetta worked for Local Authority as a Trainer and subsequently qualified as a Lecturer for a Further Education College. The transferable skills she learnt from those experiences have supported her in the transition to becoming a counsellor. She relates very well with people and understands conditions that can cause stress in the workplace and the struggles and difficulties of everyday life in society. She also has experience of working with homelessness and people with learning difficulties. She has specific interests in Baby loss, End of Life, Trauma and Workplace stress.
Georgetta is a Humanistic Counsellor and a member of BACP. She is working towards her final year of a BA (Hons) degree in Humanistic Counselling. Georgetta works for The Awareness Centre as a counsellor at a GP surgery in Wandsworth within the NHS counselling service.
