Trauma work using the Rewind Technique:
Something really painful happened to me, and at times of stress, I would get flash backs of this awful event that would send me immediately into a panic. I was cynical that anything could help. I had resigned myself to trying to learn to live with it, but nevertheless I thought I would give this a go as it wasn't hours of therapy or anything involving medication.. both of which I have tried.Rewind seems such a simple technique, that I was still unconvinced when we began, but days, weeks, months later I have not had another panic attack. It really works!
Thanks so much to Georgina who guided me through it, reassured me and treated me with enormous compassion and care. It's such a relief, even now I can hardly believe it.

Anxiety Management and Self Belief:
Georgina is a professional, personable and highly experienced therapist whom I trust implicitly, so much so that she also helped my young adult sons navigate big changes in their lives. Both greatly benefitting from her practical advice and insights.
She has guided me through several difficult moments and - in retrospect - I could not have done it without her. Perhaps most impressive about Georgina is that one leaves her sessions with a sense of lightness, positivity and a raft of tools with which to tackle problems in the future. For those seeking to lighten the load, I can highly recommend her services.

Discover Balance and the calm and support that Georgina brings to every interaction has made lockdown easier not just for Jessica but for all of us living together in our upside down world.
Anxiety and Stress:
Georgina was extremely helpful, kind and understanding in helping me find some answers with how my brain and emotions are linked. Her insightful techniques were super beneficial and soothing when stress and anxiety was bothering most at the time. Her beautiful dog also proved to be a comforting friend as well throughout my appointment.

Social Skills and Confidence:
Georgina’s workshops have not only given my son greater confidence in himself but he is also happier at school and making new friends.

Motivation and Confidence:
Through Discover Balance and Georgina’s intuitive, solutions based approach to coaching and hypnotherapy, I have been able to rediscover & realign my skills to give direction & purpose, as I approach ‘mid-life’ and beyond! Somewhat sceptical initially, I have learned that through attending regular sessions in a welcoming and private space, approaching life’s challenges with an open-mind, being honest with yourself (and others close to you) in allowing your ‘true’ self to be seen - the vulnerability bit - can help you frame these challenges in a much more positive way.
I looked forward to seeing Georgina; the intelligent conversation, the non-judgemental accountability the session offered & of course, the closing hypnotherapy.
The subconscious mind is all powerful - not only did I find myself deeply relaxed, I went away each session feeling empowered, lighter & equipped to hurdle obstacles (often self-made) in my track. Georgina’s calm, empathic and tailored approach to facilitating this transition has been quite extraordinary. Through a series of meditations, based on positive intentions - I have newfound self confidence, positivity and belief in focusing my personal goals and more importantly, some peace and guilt free ‘me time’ in this sometimes crazy and consuming HK expat life.
If you can relate to any of the above, are prone to procrastinate & deliberate over the hard stuff (like me), you’ll also find this a worthwhile process.

Confidence and Self Belief:
Georgina helped improve my confidence through fun and creative workshops! I had lots of fun, and without realising it I was feeling a lot better about myself and how I felt (Mum wrote "thank you you changed her life").
Maja, 13 year old girl - London (via Skype), September 2018
One of my friends once described me as morose, and this label really sunk in with me. That was a few years ago, but ever since I’ve been acutely aware that I tend to be the more half empty kind of guy in the room, and I wasn’t happy about it. The problem was I found myself in a rut and it was much easier to accept gloom as the norm rather than do anything about it.
I met Georgina through a mutual friend and began having regular sessions with her at the beginning of 2018. Since then I have noticed that I cope better with stress and have a much happier outlook on life. I’m not perfect, but considering I started out as a morose 3 out of 10 on the happiness scale, I’m now a pretty constant 6 who is heading for a 7!

Focus and Motivation:
I can't thank you enough. What an experience. I felt very safe at our sessions and always more centred in control and very happy afterwards.

You have helped me so much to believe in myself and achieve more than I could have imagined. Thank you! I am going to miss you.
Hazel, 17 year old - London, September 2017
I was recommended by a colleague at work to see Georgina when they noticed I was struggling! I was slightly sceptical having never had any previous therapy.
I couldn't believe how much I changed in just 12 sessions! My way of looking at life changed and I became more confident. I felt more like I did in my university days. I am a much happier person.

Georgina really helped my daughter work through the process of grieving her mother. She was very supportive during a very difficult time.

Anxiety and Life Skills:
My daughter first met Georgina through her participation in one of Georgina's group workshops. After completing several more group workshops she began to noticeably thrive thanks to discovering new abilities in herself without the pressures and anxieties of everyday life and schooling.
When the opportunity arose for my daughter to further develop these newly learnt skills In one to one sessions with Georgina we went ahead. These focused on helping my daughter build her self-confidence and learn new ways to cope with stress and anxiety. Working with Georgina has provided many wonderful benefits. My daughter is now showing much more self-confidence and can express and work with her anxieties and concerns instead of letting them consume her.

Anger and Frustration:
Max came to the Discover Balance Colour workshops to help with anger/frustration issues to learn coping strategies and find peace within himself. He was very receptive to the relaxation part of the workshops, he appeared to really enjoy the meditations checking out where they were on the list of the each colour workshop program.
I honestly was surprised at how much he liked and accepted the meditation process. He's normally a very restless person. As a result of the workshops he seemed much calmer and happier with himself and the world around him. Thank you Georgina for such a positive experience.

Self Worth and Focus:
Discover Balance was recommended to me by my son's school counsellor. He is mildly Dyslexic and was also having some problems with his peers at school. My son Dylan found the workshop extremely beneficial and thoroughly enjoyed all of the activities and the first thing he asked me once the course was over was could he do it again next week!

Georgina Delamain has been working with my 9 year old daughter for the past nine months. My daughter, Eleanor suffers from bouts of paralysing anxiety and severe lack of confidence. This anxiety makes it difficult for her to accomplish everyday tasks such as going to school, going out with friends or dealing with change of any kind. Georgina works one-on-one with Eleanor for at least two hours twice a month.
Eleanor enjoys her time with Georgina immensely and has shown marked improvement in her outlook. She is also developing the ability to recognise the signs of her anxiety and when they begin to show Eleanor uses the techniques Georgina has shown her to calm herself. Eleanor responds brilliantly to Georgina's use of all her senses in every session and through Discover Balance she is discovering her own balance along with an improved sense self esteem.
The results have been so successful that Eleanor's teachers and other adults who know her have commented on this Improvement in self-confidence. Working with Georgina is giving Eleanor a base to develop Into a functioning, exceptional child.
