Clinical Services Director
Georgia Howard is FirstLight’s Clinical Services Director. Georgia holds a BA (Hons) in counselling and psychotherapy, alongside a decade’s practice as a Psychodynamic Psychotherapist working in co-operation with such organisations as Archways, Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services, Tusla the Child and Family Agency, Arís Analytic Practice, Familibase, Ballyfermot Resource Centre, Irish Autism Association and the Irish Cancer Society.
While her work has supported individuals and families experiencing different challenges, her particular expertise is supporting bereaved families through their grief, of which she has a significant understanding. This expertise combined with extensive community experience with such organisations as Ballyfermot Resource Centre and the Irish Cancer Society has shown her the power and impact people can have in coming together in support of a family experiencing the sudden death of a child.
