George Balasopoulos, Counsellor & Hypnotherapist
Welcome, Counselling with George is a single privately operated practice providing counselling, psychotherapy and hypnotherapy service in a safe, caring and non-judgemental environment. I am here to accompany you through life's transitions and help you navigate through your own personal journey of healing and self-discovery.
My approach is holistic, presence-oriented, process-centred and soul-based. Located in Melbourne's inner city suburb of Carlton, within a welcoming and both warm and safe therapeutic space that encourages positive change and inner healing.
I also provide Walk Therapy in various natural settings across Melbourne's inner city parks and gardens. Walk Therapy is 'counselling in motion', the combination of counselling and physical movement amongst the therapeutic setting of our natural environment can often help provide us with a deep need to become reconnected with the elements of nature in order to better connect with our inner Self.
Furthermore, I hold a deep interest in Eastern Yogic Philosophy, Samanic healing and Dreamwork. The traditional practice of Yoga and breathwork has helped me deepen my client's and my own understanding of the various aspects of being, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
Having drawn on these various Teachings and techniques and applying them within a modern therapeutic framework has often proven effective within the healing process. This area of my work is negotiated with clients and sometimes integrated into the process, or purely for them to take away and practice.
For many of us, life is full of transition and change, this can sometimes be an inevitable process throughout the course of one's life. These transitional experiences can often lead us to change the way we think, feel, and behave in a variety of ways. Common reasons that we seek therapy to work through these life changes are often related to;
Anxiety & Stress management
Relationships and Family issues
Teenage Developmental Issues
Grief & Bereavement
Obsessive Compulsive Behaviours
Bullying & Cyber Bullying
Work Stress & Burn Out
Self Confidence & Self Esteem
Insomnia & Sleep Disorders
Fears & Phobias
Bereavement & Grief

• I see a handful of clients at reduced fees based on genuine need and a desire to work with me. Currently all my reduced fee places are filled, but you are welcome to register your interest.
• Fees for Counselling and Psychotherapy are not currently eligible for private health fund rebates. Some Private Health Insurance providers such as Medibank Private grant rebates for Hypnotherapy services, please be sure to check with your provider before your visit. Rebates are available for individuals entering into a Mental Health Treatment Plan with a GP. I do not recommend taking this route as it requires being diagnosed with a mental disorder and potentially receiving suboptimal treatment for a condition you do not have.
• Private health rebates for counselling/psychotherapy are rare and are currently provided by Medibank Private (Family Essentials and Family Comprehensive Policies) and Australian Unity Health (Life Choice and Life Choice Plus policies with a referral letter from a GP). (more)
