I'm Naomi. I'm a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, who trained as a therapist at post-graduate level in Melbourne, Australia. My experience includes working as a psychotherapist for MIND, a university campus counsellor and a crisis line telephone counsellor.
I have extensive experience working with young adults and the LGBTQIA+ community. Most recently, I have worked with people navigating life, change and loss throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.
Currently I work in private practice and as a freelance psychotherapist for Rainbow MIND.
Therapy with me
Above all else, I provide a non-judgemental, empathic space where you can unfold and be yourself.
My way of working is client-led and utilises the relationship between therapist and client as a vehicle for change. Where appropriate, I also bring my experience as a mindfulness meditation teacher into the room.
I provide clients with the tools to be able to face and overcome new and old challenges. This may involve cultivating a sense of self compassion and inner peace to allow one to thrive in the fast-paced modern world, or learning to develop a sense of purpose and joy in life.
My practice combines different modalities of therapy, which may include person-centred, compassion-focussed, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), psychodynamic, attachment, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and existential approaches.
Themes I work with include interpersonal relationships, sexuality, gender, grief, trauma, anxiety and depression.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
