It was September 2012, I was exhausted, suffering from anxiety and was having panic attacks. My doctor suggested that I undertake an eight-week mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) course. I did and the result has been life changing. The course opened my eyes to how our thoughts and feelings shape our lives and how our bodies respond to our thinking, anxious thinking = anxious body.

I left my career in furniture and interior design to focus on myself and my health and began reading everything I could on the mindbody link.

Experience and Qualifications

I set up  Embrace Fertility to offer inspiration, support and community for those struggling to conceive, going through fertility treatment or who are now pregnant following difficulties.

I trained in emotional freedom techniques (EFT) with master practitioners Emma Roberts and Sue Beer and became a practitioner in September 2013.

I completed a mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) course with Evolving Minds to deepen my understanding and personal practice.

I then trained in cognitive hypnotherapy with Trevor Silvester the founder of this revolutionary new therapy at Quest Institute London. I have a diploma in cognitive hypnotherapy and am a certified practitioner of neuro linguistic programming (NLP).

Having completed my Confident Childbirth hypnobirthing practitioner training I am now able to support clients throughout their entire journey to parenthood.

I am registered with the National Council for hypnotherapy (NCH)  and clients have access to their cods of conduct and ethics and disciplinary procedures at all times.

I am available for therapy/coaching sessions via Skype, Facetime, telephone or in person in South Oxfordshire - I have rooms in Henley-on-Thames and Wallingford.

Seminars & Workshops

I am available for public speaking on a range of topics including stress management, resilience and well-being, mindfulness, cognitive hypnotherapy, emotional freedom techniques, fertility, pregnancy and childbirth.

I have been running monthly fertility support group meetings and well-being workshops since April 2013 for my group Embrace Fertility. Group sizes range from 4 to 15 members.

My talk “Happier, healthier and more relaxed in just three minutes a day” which was part of the MindBelly Connection Fertility summit attracted an additional 102 members to my fertility support community.

I ran an online workshop on using hypnosis and mindfulness to reduce stress and enhance fertility during the Fertile Mind fertility summit in March 2015.

Interquest is a bi-monthly event hosted to allow Quest Institute trained hypnotherapists to connect and continue their professional development. I was invited to talk about the benefits introducing mindfulness to clients and simple ways of doing so.

“Although I have a basic understanding of mindfulness Naomi's presentation was a revelation. Her passion for mindfulness and what it can achieve with clients and the precise and interesting way she put across her subject left me feeling equally enthusiastic and with a new understanding. I have since used some of the techniques she gave us to help my clients with excellent results. Naomi is a professional and excellent presenter and trainer.” - Lesley McCall Cognitive Hypnotherapist

I am happy to run seminars or workshops. Get in touch to discuss your requirements.
