Get to know me

Hi, I’m Naomi, qualified counsellor and owner of  This messy human life.  I’m also a mother, daughter, part time blogger, dog and cat mom, chronic illness warrior and creative.  Phew!  That’s a lot of hats to wear and I’m sure you are like me and you  have to juggle a multitude of balls to keep everyone happy. 
But what about you?
Are you happy?  Perhaps you are feeling anxious and overwhelmed by life, you feel like you keep dropping balls and you are struggling?  Maybe you are trying to cope with the loss of loved ones (including pets), weighed down by the burden of past traumatic experiences or trying to cope with toxic relationships (now and/or in the past)?  Or you just don’t feel happy, even if life seems great, something is niggling away at you?
You are not alone.  So put down all those juggling balls, grab a cuppa and take some time for yourself.  Therapy is for everyone, you don’t have to have a diagnosis or have gone through life changing experiences.  If you feel anxious, depressed or just need a person to talk to about issues in your life, therapy can help.  If you finally want to let go of the past, start living for today and looking forward to the future, therapy can help.  Perhaps you want to just be heard and supported in your hectic life, therapy can help.
I work with clients from all backgrounds with a variety of issues such as anxiety, depression, stress, trauma (from all stages of life), toxic relationships, low self-esteem and bereavement including pregnancy and infant loss. I can also offer support through other life changing experiences such as relationship breakdowns, job loss, illness and disability.
As a therapist I have undergone therapy myself for training and for personal reasons so I get it can be difficult to reach out to find the therapist that is right for you.  To help you make the right decision, I offer a 15 minute consultation to see if we are a good fit for working together, you can contact me here
