About Georgie Cooke

Soul-Centered Psychotherapist and IFS Therapist

Coffs Harbour NSW and Online

“Georgie, you’re an amazing counsellor, a gem.”

I hope you are truly aware of this. You’re able to convey ideas & concepts in a way that I can really understand, and with a little work, put into practice.

Over the years there has only ever been a handful of people who have had a game-changing impact on my life, and you have become one of these people Georgie. So happy I’ve found a counsellor who’s such a professional and so down to earth.

I feel calmer about everything since our recent session, especially about being able to be kinder to myself – it’s been a paradigm shift.

You’re a gem Georgie.

I’m a Seeker of Healing and Growth

I had a profound altered reality experience at 8 years old, which stirred something deep in me, although it took another decade before I began to understand what it meant.

Later at the age of 18, I grappled with depression, anxiety and overwhelm. The yearning to heal that pain is what led me on a path of seeking insight and growth.

Thankfully some wonderful therapists and spiritual counsellors helped me get through this difficult time. I also read books and reflected extensively in solitude about what it is to be most fully alive.

I began to discover an unusual new freedom: healing from challenging experiences can make you stronger, kinder, and more resilient. They can open you up to more understanding and compassion for yourself and others.

I am who I am today because my challenges cracked me open – they helped me find the pathway back to my heart and my true self.

The other essential aspect of my journey was learning to meditate – a practice that has been a bedrock for me for the past 20 years as I continue to focus on my growth as a person, as well as a professional.

Answering My Calling to Serve Others

For over 15 years, I’ve been helping people overcome their struggles and pain. It is an extraordinary opportunity to be a companion to others on their path of personal growth. I’m passionate about continually learning and enhancing ways of helping my clients in their healing journey.

Before becoming a psychotherapist, I had careers as a holistic massage therapist and a naturopath, focusing on stress-related issues.

I enjoyed those roles immensely, yet found my true calling was to be a psychotherapist and transformational coach – helping people heal their emotional and psychological pain and to find their way towards something that would work to help them move forward in their lives.

I love the resilience of the human spirit and how we’re able to transform the adversities we face to help us grow stronger, wiser, and more courageous in living a life that is true to ourselves.

I Work From The Heart

I am a highly skilled and experienced therapist – however, I’m told it’s my compassion, empathy, and joy for life that stand out in my work with my clients. I care deeply and genuinely about my clients and do whatever I can to help them heal, grow, and thrive.

My clients are drawn to me because I am approachable, highly optimistic about life, and offer a way of working that is both heart-centred and empowering. I build rapport and trust rapidly, making our work progress more efficiently and quickly.

In spite of the evidence based-proven tools used in therapy today, research on the effectiveness of counselling always comes down to the relationship the client has with the therapist.

I believe the profound relationships I build with my clients are the reason I get such outstanding results – many clients use words such as “life-changing” to describe their work with me.

“Our sessions are such nourishing and nurturing experiences for me. You are like a guardian angel to me.”

“Thank you for all your beautiful support this year. Our sessions are such nourishing and nurturing experiences for me. Since last session there is a definite shift in me. I’m laughing like a kid again (something I hadn’t realised was missing until it came back!).

Thank you for helping bring about that shift, for your continued support and the compassion you always show. You are like a guardian angel to me Georgie, helping me find peace inside again.”
