About me

Over the past 10 years I have supported parents, children, young people, adults and their families. To increase their connection, create their unique environment to thrive and improve their emotional wellbeing.

I specialise in supporting “Highly Sensitive People” (HSP), “Highly Sensitive Children” (HSC) and “Highly Sensitive Families”.

'I faced many challenges when I first came into contact with Abigail. I was faced with a very challenging home life with my two children. I also had problems communicating with my children and managing constructively their emotional outbursts. Furthermore, I had lost a lot of self-confidence in my own parenting skills and ability to communicate effectively with my children. The change I experienced was largely down to Abigail's empathetic, yet knowledgeable approach to my situation. She had a range of strategies for me to try and was able to break through my natural reticence towards any kind of 'therapy'. Her approach allowed me to see my situation from my children's perspective and enabled me to re-connect with them once more. I saw over the months how my very angry son became less angry. Much of this was a result of a change in my attitude towards his behaviour and who he was as an individual. Abigail has both patience and perserverance in equal measure.  She also has a very keen sense of humour - which is always useful in difficult situations. I recommend Abigail unreservedly.' E.A, London

'My sessions with Abigail were truly remarkable. I am a HSP and she understood me. She skilfully identified the root cause of my issues and guided me safely through the experience of release and change. She was really compassionate, understanding and gentle. I felt fully supported, safe and looked after during a release of a stressful and traumatic experience, which she supported me to resolve. For this I am truly grateful, Thank you.' London

'I started seeing Abigail as I was suffering from low self esteem, anxiety, panic attacks and felt I was ‘too much’. Since working with Abigail, I’ve gained more understanding and compassion for myself, I feel more grounded, accepting and in-control of myself . I have discovered powerful and effective coping strategies and they are part of my daily routine. Abigail is amazing! The work we did together was very powerful.' A.L Italy & London

I offer online support for:

Parent/Carers

A lot of parents worry about their children and adolescents; how to effectively support them emotionally and how to understand and respond to their behaviour. I will guide and equip you with tools and strategies to maintain a loving connection and open communication with your family.

To reduce parental stress, overwhelm and manage emotional distress. Increase your calm, to feel more connection with your children and bring the happiness back into your own life as well as your families.

Adults
To empower individuals who might feel stressed, have post natal depression, feel sad, depressed, anxious, have low self esteem, be experiencing isolation, trauma, separation or divorce.

Children and young people
As children and young people can feel isolated in their lives, often struggling with anxiety, low self esteem, identity, the pressures of education and how they’re meant to ‘fit’ into the world. Abigail gently and effectively supports them through their challenges, she teaches them how to navigate their life, so they can discover their unique resilience, thrive and create a more positive future.

Holistic Sleep Coaching

To reduce the impact of sleep deprivation in children and their families and support the context of supported infant sleep within modern parenting.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
