Georgie Geer

2022 UMEUS Team-4

Meet Georgie

support UMEUS’ clients and practitioners with administration and projects. It’s me you’ll speak to when you self-refer, book and pay for your sessions, but I’m also here to help you find your way into our foundation space. 

Being able to support people coming into UMEUS is a real privilege. Providing a welcoming space, whether it’s for the beginning of a therapeutic journey or assisting a practitioner with their offering to the community, can be the very start of a process that I know has the potential to change a person’s life.

I’ve always practiced some form of self care such as yoga and mindfulness, but it wasn’t until having my two boys, which bought a variety of new feelings and emotions, that I really understood the value of therapeutic support. 

I’d read this quote from Michelle Obama not long after my first son was born and it really impacted me, she said “To be a good parent, you need to take care of yourself so that you can have the physical and emotional energy to take care of your family”

The discovery of the mother I was becoming, the grief for the woman I was before but hadn’t fully said goodbye to, along with my reflections on childhood experiences have shaped who I am, and that includes my work.

Alongside putting my administrative and planning skills into action, I also enjoy assisting in the creation of UMEUS’ group work and therapeutic projects, and being part of a team that is compassionate and creative.

You can contact me on email or even call, as it’s sometimes nice to hear a voice, to find out the latest information on all our therapeutic services, groups and upcoming events. Speak soon…
