EXPERIENCE

I'm Naomi. I identify as part of the LGBTQIA + community and use she/they pronouns. I trained as a therapist at post-graduate level in Melbourne, Australia. 

I have extensive training and experience in working with young adults (18 - 35) and GSRD (gender, sexual and relationship diverse) clients. My experience includes working as a freelance psychotherapist for MIND, a university campus counsellor and as a LGBTQIA+ crisis line telephone counsellor.

I'm an integrative therapist, which means I draw on several modalities. This is likely to include person-centred, compassion-focussed, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), psychodynamic, attachment, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and existential approaches.

Before becoming a therapist, I worked in the food industry as a start up founder and then as a marketing and branding manager and consultant for other start ups. I have also written a cookbook.

THERAPY WITH ME

First and foremost, I aim to create a friendly, warm space where clients feel safe and able to open up. I'm aware that therapy can be a daunting prospect, so I will ease you into the process as much as I can. I won't probe you with questions, nor will I sit silently making notes, instead we will collaborate to find our own rhythm and way of working.

I provide clients with tools to allow them to deal with the challenges that life can bring. This may be learning how to manage a diagnosis of adhd, dealing with challenging interpersonal relationships, alleviating social anxiety, or coping with feelings of low mood. 

The therapy space can also be used to process past experiences or as a sounding board to explore creating a new sense of self or direction in life. 

Where appropriate, I use my experience as a meditation teacher to work somatically with the body using breath-work and mindfulness. I aim to teach you the skills to bring these practises into your own life outside of the therapy room.
