About me

Hi, I'm Naomi. I'm 24 and I live in the UK. I thought I'd right this page not only to introduce myself but to show the non-medical side of me; even though I live with my illnesses 24/7/365 I'm still Naomi.

Creativity is my huge passion alongside letter writing which is a big distraction and coping tool. In my bedroom I have a 2 metre long notice board which I put up all my mail and it never fails to make me smile and remind me how loved I am.
My favourite crafts are decopatch, embroidery, sewing and crochet, but I'll literally give anything a go.

I also love baking and I'm good at adapting recipes to meet my allergies and intolerances. Watching a show called the Great British Bake Off really got me into wanting to bake more. My favourite thing to bake are brownies, mug cakes and banana muffins.

My favourite TV shows are House M.D,. Grey's Anatomy and Chicago Fire. I love British crime dramas too.

I'm a huge fan of Harry Potter and Disney and the Moomins. 

I'm a big fan of Pinterest and Instagram. There's no such thing as a quick look on Pinterest; I always seems to go off on a tangent when I go on there and end up looking at something completely random and off-topic to what I was originally searching for!

I'm also a Christian and my faith plays a huge role in getting me through the day and in the knowledge that God has great plans for me and that I an fearfully and wonderfully made.

I'm very interested in children and young people's wellbeing, policy and services and I have done extensive voluntary work in this file including being a VIK at YoungMinds, being a Young Ambassador for the eating disorders charity beat, I'm also on one of the panels at the Royal College of Psychiatry. I have also supported the Samaritans work in developing the DEAL programme, spoken in parliament, helped update NICE guidelines and different policies and implementing new schemes such as the Children and Young People's IAPT initiative. Just to name a few! I have also volunteered locally at the local Sure Start Centre and Children's Hospice. Hopefully when I am well enough I can get back into doing more active voluntary work as it's a huge passion of mine!
