PTSD can feel like it’s controlling your life with sleepless nights, uncontrollable anger towards loved ones, and a sense of isolation partnered with anxiety. It’s completely normal to feel frightened and disconnected, but that doesn’t mean that you have to live in that space.
Sometimes this means taking a huge step backward and re-evaluating your own mind because essentially, you have the power within yourself to manage and eventually be freed from the ties of trauma-related PTSD, but you may need assistance in unlocking that potential.
Georgina Sirett-Armstrong-Smith is a psychotherapist who specializes in karmic astrology. She helps people identify and change thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are detrimental to their overall wellbeing. Karmic astrology is a practice in which Georgina studies the arrangement of stars during your time of birth to determine burdens from past lives that could still be weighing on you.

Tell me about your professional background.
15 years ago I gave up my job as a national training manager for sunflower healing. I was tired, my back was damaged from driving so much. I have always been interested in the stars and astrology and I have been reading the tarot now for 40 years. I became a priestess of the goddess and esoteric soul healing. I also after 6 years of training qualified as a psychotherapist, and specializing in spiritual healing.
What made you want to get into this field?
My passion for astrology and how it can help people. It also can be used with psychotherapy. I like helping people to awaken themselves to a better life.
What has been your favorite aspect of this work?
Seeing people having that ahh haaa moment when they walk out of my clinic 10 feet tall and knowing who they are and their purpose.
Can you explain what karmic astrology and psychotherapy are and what a typical session is like from start to finish?
Psychotherapy is an hour-long session, I specialize in trauma PTSD associated with low self-esteem. This sometimes takes 6 sessions to years pending on the client and their needs. I work with CBT and Gestalt and many other techniques.
CBT stands for Cognitive Behavior Therapy and is meant to help change unhealthy thoughts and patterns. Gestalt therapy focuses on present challenges and taking responsibility.
Astrology, the initial reading is up to 2 hours long, there are other types of readings that the client can have to follow up. I hand draw the birth charts.
What sort of health challenges can karmic astrology and psychotherapy be effective for and why?
Karmic Astrology can explain allergies or certain health issues that can now be released.
Psychotherapy is very different, we have unlocked the why. Sometimes the mind has done an excellent job in protecting the cause of issues, providing it does not interfere with the present it’s best to leave Pandora’s box closed.
Is there a technique in your practice that you have found to be the most beneficial to the people you work with?
Listening. Sometimes it’s the first time a client has been heard. It’s validating. So depends on the client and their needs, the biggest thing for me is to listen.
What is karmic astrology and psychotherapy like from the patient’s point of view?
The karmic astrology is very powerful, giving them reasons and understanding of why, how they do things in their lives that are negative patterns and create challenges
In psychotherapy, I also say the client has the answers locked within them, and it’s finding the right key.
What would you say to someone skeptical about karmic astrology and psychotherapy and its effectiveness? How do you approach that?
Try and see, it’s not for everyone. I have 100% success and validations from clients to prove it.
Besides karmic astrology and psychotherapy do you have any universal health and well-being tips that you’d like to share?
Be authentic, take responsibility for the self. I always say the 3 new deadly sins are denial, projection, and procrastination.
If there was one piece of advice you could give to someone who is struggling, what would it be?
You never fail until you give up trying. It’s ok to feel you are struggling, and if you are struggling, be in that moment and breathe it out.
