Hello, my name is Abbie and I work in a compassionate, sensitive and empathic way which allows for my clients voice to be heard, enabling them to make effective life choices. I understand that counselling can feel like a scary prospect, which I hope will be eased after our first session together.
My aim with counselling is to help empower you to find your voice as well as yourself again.
I have worked with clients across all age ranges from age 5 up to and beyond retirement.
I have also worked with clients with a wide range of issues such as self-esteem, low mood, depression and anxiety to name a few. My aim is to help clients see the light at the end of what feels like an endless tunnel.
Aside from my private practice I work as a counsellor in a wide range of educational settings as well as children’s care homes
Training, qualifications & experience
- Post graduate diploma Clinical Counselling
- Certificate in Online and Telephone Counselling
- Diploma in Child and Adolescent Therapy
I have been a counsellor in a broad range of educational settings, including colleges and primary schools. I have also counselled in children's care homes and have extensive knowledge and experience of adults with learning disabilities.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
