About

“I bless the day I found Georgia! Leaving my marriage was one of the hardest things for me to do. I needed someone who understood the heartbreak I was going through. Georgia’s kind and caring way felt like a soft pillow into which I could sink. Her skilful advice helped me navigate the new life I now had to build. It takes a lot of Patience, insight, wisdom and I am so glad that she also has such a good sense of humour, just when I needed it most. I recommended Georgia to anyone who is in need of healing their heart and their mind!”
