Mimi Bloom is an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist who works with both adults and adolescents in a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, anger, depression, ADHD, interpersonal and relational issues, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, social anxiety, bereavement, PTSD and trauma, domestic violence, addiction, OCD, and sexual abuse. She trained in the UK, completing a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy, and a Postgraduate Certificate in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), later following this with a Postgraduate Diploma in Hypnotherapy from the Manchester Institute for Psychotherapy and Counselling. She has an interest in meditation and yoga, recognising how important the mind-body connection is to wellbeing and emotional health, and in this way likes to work holistically with clients. She is currently completing yoga-instructor training, and looks forward to being able to offer one-to-one yoga sessions, with a focus on the use of yoga for mental health and wellbeing, later this year.

Mimi Bloom grew up in Melbourne, Australia, but relocated to the UK to continue studies in opera and vocal performance. Having worked for a while as an opera singer, she retrained as a counsellor and undertook studies at the Manchester Counselling Training Centre and later at The University of Salford. Mimi moved to Newcastle at the beginning of 2022 from Manchester where she owned a successful private practice. She is excited to now be a part of Thrive Wellbeing.

At the heart of Mimi’s practice is the warm and genuine therapeutic relationship she achieves with her clients, which develops from the therapeutic conditions she offers; warmth and acceptance, a willingness to understand her clients from their point of view, and a commitment to be genuine and honest in all of her interactions. Although person-centred therapy is at the core of her practice, she also offers clients other modalities including CBT, Internal Family Systems (parts work), EFT (tapping), and hypnotherapy, often combining these to tailor a unique and individual way of working with each client.
