Naomi Nygaard

Over the past twelve years, first as a coach and then as a therapist, I’ve witnessed and guided many people towards experiencing more ease and joy in their lives.  I began as a therapeutic coach enabling people to find freedom from challenging, cyclical patterns with food and dieting.  My work expanded into other areas over time and through my training, including facilitating people’s discovery of freedom from compulsive addictive tendencies of all kinds.  I am also a trained couples therapist, and this forms a valued part of my practice. I support couples to become aware of the cycles of behaviour they have become caught in, and eventually to find freedom from the repetitive cycle, such that their needs can be much more easily met.  

My Approach

I believe we are meant to do this journey of life together.  However, I find we sometimes give up on friendship and intimacy with ourselves and others, and with a spiritual connection that could otherwise sustain us.  When we’ve experienced difficulties in relationships with others, from childhood into the present, it can be hard to trust the healing presence of another or of our own inner-self-caring capacities.  Therapy can help us rediscover this trust in ourselves, in others, and in life itself.   

I work using an integrative approach, depending on what is right for each person.  I use creative expressive therapies, such as art and movement, somatic mindfulness, and Internal Family Systems method (IFS).  IFS is a gentle and creative way of bringing curiosity and compassion to the different part of ourselves. 

In my work with couples, I facilitate a process whereby, in time, partners can speak honestly and listen openly to one another from an open heart.  From here, each partner can choose new responses to the other which allow for more understanding, intimacy, and self-care.

Where it all started

Before I retrained as a psychotherapist, I worked for many years in schools with teenagers whose behaviour isolated them from main-stream class teaching.  I discovered that mindfulness was often the most effective tool for settling and nourishing the distressed young people, and I became inspired to develop my growing understanding in a new career direction as a therapist.

“I felt instantly comfortable with Naomi; she has a calm and caring presence.  Our sessions were very insightful: I was able to connect with what was right for me and gain the confidence I needed in making a decision to move forward in my life.”

“I can recommend therapy with Naomi to anyone who wants to find more balance, happiness and freedom from what is holding you back from doing work that inspires you: these are all the changes I went through during the course of our work together.”
