Naomi England Integrative Counsellor MBACP MSc BSc
I am a calm and empathic counsellor, available for clients who want to work through issues that are causing them concern or difficulties in their day to day lives.
Do you feel you need some support to work through issues or challenges in your life? Maybe you are feeling anxious or experiencing low mood? Have life events left you overwhelmed or uncertain about what is next?
Maybe there is something that you need to talk about, but don’t want to talk to friends or family about it right now. Counselling may offer the opportunity to work through these emotions and more, finding a way forward for you. I offer a safe space to do this, through short term and long term counselling, depending on your needs.
How do I work?
My integrative counselling approach and techniques will be led by your needs and the topics you wish to work through. This may involve elements of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), Gestalt and and other humanistic and psychodynamic approaches. We may also use more creative methods, but the choice will always be yours. Counselling sessions with me will always involve a safe, confidential, empathic and non-judgemental environment, from the underpinning basis of a client-centred ethos.
My counselling experience is varied, having supported adults, children and young people in a variety of settings. I have worked regularly with clients experiencing (amongst other things)
- bereavement, grief & loss, abandonment issues
- domestic abuse
- family/relationship difficulties
- identity and self esteem issues
I have also worked with dreams, this being a personal area of study and research.
I have worked within Cruse Bereavement services and have also supported young people in primary and secondary school, as well as FE college as a school/college based counsellor. I am an approved therapist with Anxiety UK. I also have experience working alongside the military and can offer support in this context.
My aim is always to provide you with a calm and safe space to share your thoughts and experiences, allowing you to find the insight that you need to make the changes you desire.
