About Georgia

Georgia Cooper is a Certified DDP Practitioner and has been a BACP registered therapist since 2002. She sees DDP/PACE as a ‘way of being’ rather than a technique in an integrative tool box. Working prolifically with young people, children and their families, Georgia utilises the DDP model not only through the work she does in her private practice as a local authority ‘approved provider’ of adoption support services, but also in her local community in schools, with birth parents, and in her role as Well Being Co-ordinator at a local dance college.   

As well as her many years’ work as a therapist in education settings, the NHS and the voluntary sector, Georgia has a background in arts and an active arts practice. Most recently she has been using the DDP model to facilitate a therapeutic parents group in a deprived area of Leeds.  

Identifying as queer and with lived experience of neurodiversity, class-based inequity and the mental health difficulties this has provoked, creativity plays a key part in her therapeutic approach – and her communication style.
