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 UKCP accredited and BACP registered psychotherapist. Resolute Therapy is my East London based psychotherapy practice, where I work with adults from all walks of life, all genders and sexual and relationship 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, queer woman and an immigrant to the UK. 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 and an Advanced Diploma in Existential Psychotherapy.

Alongside private practice, I worked at Metro Centre in their targeted LGBTQ+ counselling service, as 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 an Accredited Member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and adhere to their codes of ethics and complaints procedures.

My UKCP membership number is 2011166268 and my BACP registration number is 304160.

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

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

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.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
