Mrs Naomi Taylor
2005 was my year of transition. After 4+ years of initial counsellor training, I reached a point where I was qualified, experienced and confident to practice as a counsellor/therapist. I had spent almost half a decade training in both person- centred and psychodynamic therapies in the UK.
Since then I have worked as a therapist and clinical supervisor in education, private practice, employee assistance programmes and healthcare - spanning across the UK, Indonesia, China & currently Saigon, Viet Nam.
I have supported the very young; those in between; and the greyer haired variety too. All with one thing in common - to seek & create change to enhance their lives.
I consider myself to be an integrative therapist, using creative techniques and hypnotherapy where suitable. This is with both individuals and couples.
The dilemmas that have been presented are wide and varied. We are all individual and no matter how similar the initial issue may be presented to me I find that there is never one magical fix that fits all; if only it were so simple!
?I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)???? and? attend regular supervision; a Certified Hypnotherapist with the National Guild of Hypnotists ????(NGH)???? as well as a ??Certified? Parent Effectiveness Training? Instructor. My learning never ends. Here are a few areas that I have attended additional training in:

Level 1 training with the Gottman Institute: Bridging the Couple Chasm.
The Rewind Technique (Human Givens & Uncommon Knowledge) - treating traumas & phobias
