Background:

Georgie has had a fairly nomadic life, having moved 44 times, lived in different countries/counties and had various careers. She was an Army child, Special Constable, Army soldier, Police Control Room Operator, Secondary Science Teacher, Programme Leader/Lecturer and self employed as Natural Therapist for Animals and People which included Essential Oil Therapy for Animals, Kinesiology and Reiki.

Georgie’s life experiences have included of the emotional impact that alcoholism, drugs misuse, murder, divorce, missing persons, psychosis, sectioning, social services intervention, children in care and PTSD. All these experiences that have caused pain and suffering, but were also opportunities to become conscious (Being present), rather than stay unconscious (in the egoic mind) and attract more of the same. Counselling and other therapies have helped Georgie with this realisation and perhaps the reason she now works in this field supporting others with their personal journey.
