Whether young or old, sometimes people need help to unpick their thoughts and feelings and start to make sense of their relationships, behaviours, coping strategies and attachments. Patterns which start early on in life can become troublesome or dysfunctional.

I’m an experienced integrative therapist working with individuals struggling with anxiety, low self-esteem, depression and relationship issues. You may feel that you are struggling with these issues alone and that you can’t talk to your partner, friends or family. You might worry that these issues keep repeating themselves and that you will always feel stuck. I work with clients to explore their current emotional concerns to understand underlying and often unseen issues. It is this process that opens up positive change.

I have experience working with a wide range of issues, including depression, anxiety and other emotional difficulties, low self-esteem, problems in relationships, family issues, feelings around intense loss such as bereavement or the ending of a close relationship, and eating disorders.

Sometimes we need a safe and confidential space to begin to make sense of the world, to understand or learn more about ourselves and process our experiences. My approach is grounded in the belief that we all have the capacity to heal given an environment and support that feels attuned to the needs of the individual. Whether you are navigating difficult and persistent negative thoughts and experiences, feeling anxious, sad, overwhelmed, stuck, depressed or want to get to know yourself deeper. I offer a safe and confidential space to understand and learn more about yourself, process experiences and improve your relationships.

I am a warm, experienced therapist working with both couples and individuals. Are you feeling anxious, depressed or experiencing low self-confidence?

I can support you as you explore these issues and a wide range of other challenges. At the start of our work, we'll identify what you want to achieve from counselling. Whether your aims are abstract or specific, we can work towards them together.

I'm delighted to connect with you as an HCPC registered Arts Therapist (Drama and Movement Therapist).

Over my 7 years working in mental health, I've honed an approach that feels creative, embodied, and most importantly - safe. If you feel stuck in old narratives or ready to process past trauma, I'm here to listen without judgement and companion you on your journey toward healing. My goal is to provide a warm, affirming environment where we can explore your inner world.

Hello, I’m Naomi (she/her). I know that starting your therapy journey takes courage and therefore I offer a warm, empathetic and non-judgemental space to support you in taking those first steps. An integrative approach allows me to tailor the therapy to each individual that comes to see me, however I do primarily pull from humanistic and neurobiological theoretical viewpoints. My practice has robust foundations in trauma-informed approaches, placing the safety and empowerment of all clients as the priority.

Typically, I work with people struggling with anxiety, despair, anger, and shame; who wrestle with guilt, mistrust, addiction, and dissociation; who are self-critical, self-destructive, and trapped in repeated patterns of hurting self/others. Such feelings, behaviours, and patterns of relating often stem from multiple and complex life events and circumstances, including past/present abusive and neglectful relationships, discrimination, bereavement, trauma, gender expectations, parenthood, study/work/financial pressures, and more existential challenges such as one's relationship to meaning, responsibility, authenticity, and death.

Having experienced at first hand the hugely positive impact counselling has had on my own life, I chose to train as a psychodynamic therapist to help others experience the same profound benefits. I now use an integrative approach, which has enriched my work with clients. Working with you, we will together examine and uncover often unconscious or repressed memories which in turn can drive unhelpful patterns of behaviour. We will explore the sources of your problems and aim to deal with the underlying issues, not just try to find a way to cope with them. Only by making peace with the past can you look forward to a happy future.

Hello, I'm an Art Psychotherapist. Whatever brings someone to therapy, whatever their gender, age, neurodivergence, physical ability, race or social background, I am here to hold a supportive space where they can ask their own verbal and sensory questions and have agency over their own answers. Experiences, challenges and changes when it comes to identity, a loss, physical illness, trauma, relationships or insecure attachments, can sometimes become overwhelming and hard to hold alone. A person may come to therapy with a sense of curiosity, about their journey through life, and how it is affecting their relationship with the present.
