Meet our practitioners

Georgina Sayce



I have a lifelong interest in helping people to reach their full potential. I have training in Client Centred Therapy, Psychotherapy, Hypnotherapy, NLP, Life Coaching, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprogramming (EMDR) and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). I help people in any area of their lives in which they need support. Clients come to me in times of transition, when they are uncertain of the way ahead, to heal past hurts or to change a behavioural response that is limiting them in some way. Watching people move forward in ways that have previously been blocked to them is extremely rewarding. I gain huge pleasure from seeing the progress clients make. I look forward to meeting you and helping you move forward on your journey through life.

"Georgina has helped me through a number of difficult periods in my life, from dealing with my marriage breakdown to coping with a very upsetting and stressful period in my work life. She has helped me to unravel my feelings, understand and deal with them and work towards creating a positive future. Georgina is such a warm, caring person that sharing your innermost thoughts with her feels more like confiding in a lifelong friend than a therapist. I’m so grateful for all the help she has given me" (Claire, London)

"I have had three previous attempts to "sort myself out" with no great success, but I can quite truthfully say that my sessions with G have been life changing. I am now equipped with skills to help me deal with everyday struggles and greater life burdens. I now spot the warning signs quickly when the balance of life starts to tip and am equipped to analyse the situation and correct my mental approach with genuine self belief and worth. I still have lots to address but I can truthfully say I have started to like and value myself! Thank you from bottom of my heart" xxx (Bee, Thames Ditton)

I have always believed that by opening up and talking to someone who is outside of your situation, you can feel a sense of relief and trust in that person to keep what you have said confidential.

I would like you to feel that you're being listened to and understood which in turn, will help to create a safe environment for you to speak freely in. Counselling is a chance for you to explore and learn more about yourself while having me alongside you for the journey.

About me
I have a degree in Counselling Psychology and a Diploma in Counselling.
I have worked on mental health wards and been based in a community mental health team for 4 years, where I worked with families who were impacted by a loved one's mental health. Here I also worked with individuals who were suffering with their own mental health problems as well. I now work with teenagers who are about to leave the foster care system where I help them to adjust into living independently and building the best life they can for themselves.
I love working with people of all ages to help support them and to help them realise they have their own answers to their problems; it's just about unlocking these.

I offer an initial session to new clients to give us chance to get to know each other and see if we can work well together. There is no obligation for you to return for more sessions with me if you don't want to.
For this first session I charge £10 for 30 minutes. If you would like to return for more sessions with me after this, I charge £50 for 50 minutes.
If you are a student or on reduced income please discuss this with me during our initial session and we can talk about costings.

Integrative Counsellor / Psychotherapist

I am a qualified and experienced Integrative counsellor and psychotherapist working with individual adults and young people.

Integrative approach comprises teachings based on psychodynamic, humanistic and cognitive behaviour approaches. It offers broad academic foundation that can be moduled according to each individual's needs.

This approach emphasises the importance of our mutual relationship; relationship that is based not only on practical aspects such as contract and presenting issues but also on a real emotional connection. This is very different to a professional relationship you might have with your doctor or dentist.

This relationship will often be influenced by our past experiences, where we will remind each other of someone else from our respective pasts. And that is OK, we will explore this together.

I will aim to provide a relationship that is reparative and corrective if the original parental relationship was abusive of deficient.

I can offer you a space that is safe and non-judgemental where you can start exploring and making sense of your issues. By looking both in the past to understand your patterns, reasons behind their development and by looking forward to see how you can change them.

So, we will work towards developing meaningful relationship where you can feel safe to share your emotions, explore past experiences, challenge present actions and hopefully find a way to 'relate better to yourself and to others' (Clarkson).

Psychodynamic Psychotherapist

As a psychodynamic psychotherapist I believe that current life issues have their roots in what happened earlier in life. This often goes back to early childhood when our basic patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving are laid down in neural patterns in our brains. I also believe that it is the counsellor's role to facilitate the natural self-healing processes inherent in us all. This means releasing the latent healing power of the mind to change the neural patterns to enable the person to overcome current difficulties and live a more fulfilling life.

Psychodynamic therapy is not generally about fixing a particular issue, although this can be a consequence. It covers the whole person – beliefs, attitudes, values, thought processes, emotions, and behaviours. This is a gradual process occurring over months or years as self-awareness grows and changes occur. Psychodynamic therapy is not for everyone as some have a specific issue that can be addressed by other modalities, and for some these resolve the whole life concerns as well. Different modalities suit different people, and at different stages in their lives.

In psychodynamic therapy sessions are held at the same time every week and last for 50 minutes each. During the sessions the client dos most of the talking. The counsellor listens and works with the client to help him/her gain greater self-understanding, perhaps by making links between the present and the past working through some unresolved emotion from the past. The client and counsellor work in a partnership of discovery that may be, at different times, enjoyable, enlightening, empowering and also sometimes painful as we come to terms with what happened in the past.

The process is not just about looking backwards. It is also about searching for meaning and purpose to find greater enrichment from the future. Often this is about finding our authentic selves and gaining the courage to express that self rather than living within an outer personality that we have constructed in order to conform to society's expectations.

If you think that psychodynamic therapy may be for you we would have an initial brief discussion on the phone and then set up an assessment session where we can look together in more detail about whether psychodynamics is the most suitable approach for you. It also gives you a chance to meet me and a taste of what the sessions will be like.

Victoria Smith


Integrative Counsellor / Psychotherapist
Clinical Hypnotherapist
Master NLP

I am a fully qualified and registered integrative counsellor/psychotherapist. Having gained a BSc in Integrative Counselling I went on to work as a youth counsellor in the education system. I then studied at the Surrey Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy and qualified as a clinical hypnotherapist and master neuro linguistic practitioner. I also hold certificates in child protection, drug and alcohol addiction and am a certified nutritional advisor. My therapeutic approach is integrative, which means that I draw on different theories to take into account of personal circumstances and individual needs. I have been working in private practice since 2014. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and work within the BACP ethical framework for good practice.

Counselling and psychotherapy can provide a safe and supportive space for you to explore difficult thoughts or feelings. It can be a journey of self discovery where negative thoughts and feelings maybe challenged as you move into a happier place in your life. Within the counselling room you are able to discover who you truly are and become more equipped to overcome emotions and situations that had previously seemed overwhelming. 

Hypnotherapy is a valuable therapy that can help to release past trauma and decondition established habits. Even though our personal unconscious only ever seeks to promote our well being it can often be the seat of faulty learning from our childhood, leading to low self esteem, under achievement and sometimes worse. Often it attempts to protect us by raising our fears and anxieties to phobic levels to keep us from a particular activity or stimulus it sees as dangerous. Utilising hypnosis in therapy often facilitates an unconscious relearning process. Hypnotherapy is a useful therapy for any behavioural or habitual problem you may be facing.

If you feel like therapy is something that you would like to explore the next step would be to book an initial appointment where we can discuss what has brought you to therapy, what you hope to get out of therapy and how you and I would work together.
