Naomi Partridge (MBACP Accredited, UKRCP Registered)
I am an experienced BACP Accredited counsellor / psychotherapist based in Perth, with experience of working with individuals on a wide range of issues. I qualified in 2007 and for a number of years I have worked for a mental health organisation, and now also work in private practice with individuals and for EAP Companies. I work with adults and with young people aged 16 and over, and offer both short-term and long-term therapy. I am also trained and practice as a supervisor. I work with supervisees, both qualified and in training, from a variety of approaches.
I am passionate about my work, and feel it's a real privilege to work alongside each person on their particular journey. The framework for my counselling is Person-Centred, and this places the therapeutic relationship at its heart. I will really try empathically to understand what your world is like for you. I will be respectful, warm, genuine and honest with you. I will not judge you and will be accepting of you. I will work at a pace that is guided by you, and will check out with you regularly how you are finding the counselling space.
