How we started

NAOS was set up by a collective of therapists who hold the fundamental core belief that therapy should be accessible to all and that recovery is possible.

From our experience of working with often multiply disadvantaged, complex and hard to reach people, the collective recognised the need to do things differently and to make therapy more approachable, achievable and accessible for all. The team at NAOS have developed models of working that safely reach out to those in need and to those who may struggle to engage with traditional clinical therapy.

NAOS started from the understanding that for an organisation to be accessible it needs to be inclusive and consistent with the different cultural backgrounds, world-views, traditions and languages of the multicultural community in which we live.

We are only able to accept new adult self-referrals currently.
