Dr Georgina Dyson-Horton
Georgina has held a private practice since 2008, is registered with the Health and Care Professions Council, holds memberships with the British Psychological Society, the UK Council for Psychotherapy, the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, and the Society for Existential Analysis. She has a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology, a Degree in Psychology and an Advanced Diploma in Counselling.
Georgina has a range of expertise having worked for several charities such as Macmillan Jersey, Brighter Futures, Brook Jersey, Victim Support & Rape Crisis, Jersey Focus on Mental Health, Rethink severe mental illness, and Hereford & Worcester Lesbian & Gay Switchboard.
These roles have built a solid foundation in understanding the complexity of human experience, the experience of mental illness, managing sexual health, the experience of abuse, dealing with cancer, the experience of loss and, of course, resilience. More recently Georgina has held a part-time position in Compliance, which has given rise to a greater understanding of the regulatory pressures within the finance sector.
Georgina works holistically, so discussions about health and wellbeing are part of her approach.
Her counselling style is Existential; rather than seeing people in terms of symptoms or diagnosis, her approach centres around how we see the world and our individual experiences of it. Our relationship to those around us and our circumstances are affected by the meanings and values we hold , which affect how we are able to live.
“Georgina helped me massively with a range of issues. Her approach is calming, open and she listens to everything you say thoroughly. The techniques that Georgina taught me to deal with anxiety I use daily. I never felt like my feelings were invalid or strange. I felt valued, supported and most importantly listened too when I had counselling. I left each appointment with what felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders. I would recommend Confidential Counselling to anyone who needs it.”
