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 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!
I have embarked on the role of a Counselling Supervisor, offering 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.
