Naomi Milton – Principal Psychotherapist
I am a qualified Psychotherapist with a First-class degree in Integrative-Relational Counselling and a postrgraduate certificate in Psychodynamic Counselling from the University of Oxford. I am registered and accredited by the British Association for Counselling (BACP).
Having gained a degree in Marketing in my early twenties I embarked on a career in a fast-paced, stressful environment that led to an unhealthy work-life balance. It wasn’t until years later that I questioned what I really wanted to do with my life and found the courage to seek counselling. Through therapy, I learned to understand myself more and embarked on Counselling training. From this I moved on to founding Hear & Now Therapy.
The approach I use means that I draw on a range of theories to support my work and my belief is that the relationship created between a client and their counsellor plays a significant part in the counselling process.
As an accredited member of the BACP, I am bound by their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy. More information can be found here.
“I believe in social responsibility and paying it forward. I make some reduced-cost or free counselling sessions available to those who couldn’t afford counselling otherwise. Please contact me by email in advance if you would like to enquire about getting help with your appointment costs.”
Bella Williams – Psychodynamic Therapist
I have a MSt in Psychodynamic Practice and a postgraduate diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling from the University of Oxford.
Psychodynamic practice is based on the idea that not everything that motivates us is conscious. We might think together about particular issues that concern you or help you gain a greater level of self-understanding. With clearer insight into how we have been affected by the past and how we behave in the present, we might gain greater freedom of choice in how we lead our lives.
I offer both short-term therapy and long-term, open-ended therapy. I have experience working with depression, self-harm, abuse, eating disorders, bereavement, and much else. However, therapy is a space for you to discuss whatever you’d like; there needn’t be a specific ‘reason’ for counselling. So if you think it might be useful for you please get in touch and we can arrange a session to discuss the best course of therapy for you.
