Naomi Wright Registered MBACP PgDip
Hi! I am here for you. I offer a confidential service and space where I hope you feel able to share and express your thoughts and feelings. As your therapist I will listen without judgement, offering acceptance and understanding. My hope is that through the process of exploring your thoughts and feelings you can gain insight, reduce your distress and heal. Your sessions are for you. I am here to facilitate the changes you hope to make and will play an active role in the sessions, exploring and sharing the process with you. I will talk back.
The person-centred approach to counselling is non-directive and so I will be led by what you bring each week. The sessions are personal to you and I will, where possible, work with you the way you feel will work best for you. This is not a structured or prescribed style of therapy and so there is no set time frame or tasks to be completed. I am here to offer both validation and challenge as an impartial guide, holding your best interests in mind at all times.
I work with how you're feeling at the present, looking at your past to see what has shaped your present and look at how you would like to move forward into your future. It is a collaborative process in which I will guide and support you using the skills I have acquired over my training and experience.
I have experience working with a range of client issues, genders, ages and goals. I carried out over 100 counselling hours at MIND during my training. I now work solely in private practice and have amassed over 500 hours. I also offer training, workshops and am available to write and speak for organisations.
As our relationship is central to the process, I offer all clients an introductory session for me to provide more information about myself, person-centred therapy and what you can expect. This is an opportunity for you to ask questions and for me to find out what has brought you to therapy and what it is you would like to achieve. This is for 45 minutes at a reduced fee of £20.
I live and work on a dairy farm so have an interest in mental health in agriculture. I spend my spare time in the outdoors hiking and wild swimming. I feel nature, especially cold water swimming have huge mental health benefits.

I offer daytime and evening appointments from Monday to Thursday and am flexible.

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.
