Counselling

with Louise George.

Hi, I’m Louise. I’m originally from the North of England and living happily in Cork with my husband and our two daughters since 2007. I have a passion for working with people with food/weight and body image issues, which stems from my own experience of having suffered from Anorexia and Bulimia as a teenager.

During my time in England I worked for 12 years as a Counsellor in various specialist Eating Disorders services across Merseyside. 

I also worked for several years as an in-house Counsellor in GP surgeries working with clients suffering from anxiety, depression, grief, and relationship issues. I am available to offer short term counselling support in these areas. 

Having settled in Cork, I qualified as a yoga teacher and since 2010 have been teaching group classes, as well as individual yoga therapy sessions from within the Douglas Yoga Centre.

I believe that yoga is a very helpful tool for building a stronger and healthier connection between the mind and body, and in this way it is a wonderful companion to talking therapy. I believe that a combination of yoga and counselling can help many people with food, weight and/or body image issues increase their levels of body satisfaction and gradually reduce some of the symptoms they experience. Yoga also offers us many tools that can bring much needed relief to those struggling with stress and/or anxiety.

Eating Freely

 

In 2018 I became a Certified Eating Freely Therapist. 

Eating Freely is the world’s leading network of Binge Eating, Emotional Eating and Bulimia Specialists.

I am thrilled to be part of the team and looking forward to bringing this program to more clients in Cork who are struggling with emotional eating, binge eating or bulimia. 

About the program:

Eating Freely is a highly structured program with loads of supports included to help you get on track, and STAY on track – physically, mentally and emotionally.

Using a combination of CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy), Neuroscience and Mindfulness throughout the program Eating Freely gives you a great toolbox of resources you can begin using straight away, and continue to build on after we finish our work together.

The program will enable you to;

REDUCE episodes of Bingeing and Emotional Eating;

REHABILITATE your gut and health through Nutritional Therapy;

RESET your brain (!), by teaching you about Autopilots, Habit Loops and more so you can BREAK the patterns of overeating, binge eating and eating in response to stress;
and finally

RE-PROGRAM that negative critical voice in your head, to become kinder, more supportive and far more motivational – because really, how has that voice been working out for you up until now?

What a gift to give yourself this year, the gift of true FREEDOM around food, FOREVER!
