Abigail Plowright, Children, Young People, Adults and Family Therapist.
Over the past 8 years I have supported children, young people, adults and their families to manage emotional distress, family issues, anxiety, low self esteem, trauma and bereavement. 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
