About me

Living can be a challenge...

If you are struggling and are looking to reflect on the situation you find yourself in, you might be considering psychotherapy. I am here to support you in your exploration.

About me

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 believe that you are the true expert in yourself, yet at times we can all benefit from a skilled, external perspective on our problems and concerns. For me psychotherapy is not about categorising people, nor is it about establishing a diagnosis or finding a 'cure'. As your therapist, I will be alongside you and support you while we explore where you are at and where you would like to be. I endeavour to create a relationship of trust by listening and responding in such a way that anything and everything can be said, in order to bring about new possibilities and facilitate meaningful and lasting change.

I have worked with individuals experiencing a broad range of challenges that can affect us all as human beings. I identify as a disabled, bisexual woman and an immigrant to the UK and I have a particular interest in and experience with minority experiences, gender, sexuality, disability and identity. I am a LGBTQ+ affirmative, as well as kink- and poly aware therapist.

I work from an existential perspective, which means that my approach has a philosophical edge concerned with the question of what it means to be human, or in other words, what all 'this' is about'.

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 and respond to inquiries quickly.

If you would like to take it further I will suggest a time for an initial meeting. This gives us an opportunity to discuss what brings you to therapy and what your hopes and expectations are. I am also happy to answer question about myself and how I work. If we decide to go ahead, we will agree times and fees and discuss an agreement outlining obligations for us both. We will then meet regularly at the same time on a weekly basis.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have trained as a psychotherapist at Regent's University's School of Psychology and Psychotherapy and hold a Post Graduate Diploma in Psychotherapy and Counselling.

Alongside private practice, I worked at Metro Centre in their targeted LGBTQ+ counselling service, and am currently an honorary therapist at the Terrence Higgins Trust and at CASA Alcohol Service.

I have an arts background, hold an MA in Fine Art and also have many years experience of working as a mentor within Disability Arts settings.

I am a Registered Member (MBACP) of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and adhere to its code of ethics and complaints procedures.

My BACP registration number is 304160.

I am committed to Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and regular supervision. I hold professional indemnity insurance.
