Naomi Landau UKCP MBACP
I am an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist and a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).
Practising as an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist means that I recognise that there are significant links between all approaches to counselling and psychotherapy. As different clients have different needs, one single approach does not suit everyone; I aim to be flexible, working in a way which most benefits my client.
I believe that the quality of the relationship between counsellor and client, rather than any particular theoretical model, is the most successful aspect of therapy. I encourage people to explore their feelings and take responsibility for their thoughts and actions.
*What is the difference between counselling and psychotherapy?
The term 'therapist' is used to include counsellors and psychotherapists: there is a significant overlap between the two in terms of the skills and approaches used. Counselling is often shorter term, sometimes focusing on a specific issue. Psychotherapy is a longer term process, involving a deeper exploration of past experiences in order to make sense of the present, and understand patterns which lead us to behave or experience life in certain ways.
Training, qualifications & experience
I completed an Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling (BACP accredited training) at CPPD Counselling School in 2006 and have worked in private practice since 2007. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP). I completed an Advanced Diploma and an MA in Integrative Psychotherapy at the Minster Centre in 2013 (UKCP accredited training). My training involved humanistic and psychoanalytic approaches.
I am also a graduate of the University of Edinburgh (MA Hons) and also hold a Postgraduate Certificate of Education from the University of Bristol. I have a background of working in education.
In addition to my private work, my counselling experience includes working as a counsellor in a school, a youth centre and in a GP practice.
I am fully insured to practise as a counsellor and have regular supervision in accordance with BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) guidelines.
