Do you feel the need to talk, share, collaborate together with someone to find a way forward or just make sense of some challenges or tangles in your life right now? If yes, counselling might be the right step for you. Counselling is a journey you embark on, a journey of self-exploration, exploration of situations, patterns, relationships or any other aspect in your life that might be challenging. Taking that journey with a counsellor you feel comfortable with is equally important. As a counsellor, my aim is to create a safe and non-judgemental space where you feel free to start that journey.

I enjoy working with young people and adults alike. I have been told by past clients that I am open, honest and friendly, which are qualities that all clients have valued. I like to problem solve and am a very logical and practical person. Having lived in several different countries, I have developed a good understanding of a range of issues for people from different cultures and backgrounds. I like to ask questions and truly get to know someone and never assume to know better. My clients are always the experts in their lives and I see myself as a guide to help them navigate to a calmer place.

Are you telling people you are 'fine' even though you know you are not? Maybe you are going through a bereavement, a life transition, a difficult period of your life and need some emotional support? Maybe you have already experienced difficulties in your life and are struggling with the way you feel on the other side of it. Perhaps you are struggling with anxiety, low self-esteem or depression?

Hello, I'm Abi. I am not going to guess why you are considering counselling. Everyone's reasons for seeking support are varied and unique to them. You are looking here, and that is the first step to trying it out. Counselling needs to be experienced to see if it works for you. We can work together to safely unravel any difficulties, challenges, or confusions to help you gain a better understanding of yourself, your values and priorities. I believe that enhancing your self-compassion and knowing yourself better can be the gateway to a more fulfilling and content life. Counselling with me can give you an opportunity to do that.

There are times when many of us feel we could benefit from emotional support and although making that first step to see a counsellor can seem enormous, it is a really positive step as talking in confidence to a professional counsellor can help bring clarity and healing and give you much needed support during a painful or anxious time. Counselling can help you make sense of your emotions and responses and empower you to make changes in your life. It facilitates the freedom to talk openly and confidentially, in a place where you will be really listened to.

My practice is transpersonal, which means to look beyond what's immediately obvious and personal. Transpersonal therapy allows for the structure of psychoanalysis, whilst welcoming the spiritual and physical way you are in the world. (You do not have to identify as 'spiritual' to enter transpersonal therapy.) It also recognises that we are interconnected. In other words, what is happening to you, involves others too, it is not all of your own creating. I am also interested in physical manifestations of psychological pain. The way we work with or against our physical-ness has a deep impact on the way we live our lives.
