Georgie Igoe has a strong commitment to and passion for individual and collective healing. Her creative practice as an artist, ability to maintain deep and strong relationships, and reverence for the land and its sacred heritage are central to who she is in the world. Georgie’s ancestors came from Ireland and England and she has had the privilege of growing up on the unceded lands of the Cammeraigal people, on the coastline of Sydney.
Since graduating from a double degree in Social Work and Arts with an major in Indigenous studies in 2016, Georgie has found herself walking and working alongside First Nations communities in rural India, Central Australia and in Victoria. These lands and communities have been profound teachers for Georgie and have higlighted the importance of integrating social justice and truth telling about colonisation into healing work.
Georgie’s skillset and experience has been diverse; from counselling, individual and family therapeutic work, reflective practice within community organisations, program development, and working within large scale research projects.
Alongside her work with We Al-li Georgie works as a counsellor and young women’s program coordinator on Dharawal country.
Georgie brings an open and creative heart to her therapeutic work. She is passionate about the group experience; the healing that can occur in deep connection, creating space for story telling, and in the deep listening and witnessing of each other’s journeys.
She is currently based on Dharawal country in NSW.
