Noemi Lakmaier, MBACP, MA, PgDip
Living can be a challenge...
If you are seeking to reflect on and clarify the situation you find yourself in, it can be helpful to have a therapist alongside you to support you in your exploration.
I am Noemi Lakmaier, a registered (MBACP) psychotherapist. Resolute Therapy is my East London based psychotherapy practice, where I work with adults from all walks of life, all genders and sexual diversities.
I work from an existential-phenomenological perspective, which means that my approach to psychotherapy is based in philosophy engaged with the question of what it means to be human.
I believe therapy should be non-judgemental; it is not about categorising people, nor is it about establishing a diagnosis or finding a cure. As your therapist, I endeavour to create a relationship of trust by listening and responding in such a way that anything and everything can be said.
I am comfortable working with the broad range of challenges that we can all experience as human beings and that people may want to bring to therapy. Identifying as a disabled, bisexual woman and an immigrant to the UK, I have a particular interest in the minority experience, gender, sexuality, disability and identity. I am a LGBTQ+ affirmative, as well as kink- and poly aware therapist.
I originally come from a visual and performance art background which I continue to pursue alongside my therapy practice.
How to get started
The decision to approach a counsellor or psychotherapist is a positive one, but it can also be daunting and you may have questions or anxieties about it. Please visit my website to find out more about me or contact me. I am happy to answer any questions you may have.
If you wish to proceed we will arrange a time to meet. This initial meeting is an opportunity for us to discuss what brings you to therapy, what your hopes and expectations are, and to establish if you are comfortable working with me. If we decide to go ahead, we will agree times and fees and we will discuss an agreement outlining obligations for us both.
