Fresh Thoughts Counselling
My name is Naomi and I am the manager at Fresh Thoughts Counselling. It brings me such pride to write a bio about something I am so passionate about because I began my counselling journey back in 2011 and I haven't looked back. Prior to this I worked at a SEN School teaching Speech & Language Therapy; this work gave me a solid foundation on the importance of communication and expression of the 'self'.
I am a qualified and Accredited Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and Clinical Supervisor, working with adults, young people, children, couples, families, groups, EAPs and companies. I have a lot of experience working with a variety of presenting issues e.g. bereavement, anxiety, depression, stress, relationship difficulties, PTSD, trauma, chronic pain and eating disorders, to name a few. However, we can also work together if you aren't sure what your problems are; but you feel a warm, professional, non-judgemental and confidential space is what you need. The process is about tailoring the sessions to your individual need and ensuring we work with the whole of you!
My work as a Clinical Supervisor means I offer; professional & ethical support to other therapists to ensure client work is safe, for both client and counsellor.
My vision for Fresh Thoughts Counselling
I have always wanted to create a company that works with the whole of a person, therefore my initial training (and those associated with my business) uses a humanistic and client-focused approach. I draw upon many modalities of therapy and value the uniqueness of every encounter.
I have been fortunate to develop my business into a successful placement opportunity for budding therapists and pride myself on encouraging their new career journey.
