Therapy is different from other relationships in that it allows you the space to explore yourself and your needs and  the impact of perceptions and experiences. With the safety of the therapeutic relationship, we can begin to make sense of our reality and start to heal from the discomfort and brought from historic and recent experiences.


Through the therapeutic process patterns will begin to emerge . By recognising patterns of behaviour and developing an understanding of their function, we can begin to make long lasting changes that impact on all areas of life.  My aim is to support you in developing that awareness and resilience, manifesting long term change. 


Using a combination of theories(namely Gestalt, Psychodynamic and Person Centred), I work relationally both long and short term with clients to suit their needs. This approach allows me to remain congruent and have unconditional positive regard for you as a client, regardless of what comes up in our sessions.


Sessions are 50minutes long at the same time on the same day each week. There may be some flexibility around this if you are unable to attend a regular slot. 

Working with Abby, I feel safe enough to deal with the pain and hurt I have been blocking out for years. I have been able to see changes in different areas of my life and do things I didn't think I would have the confidence to do.
