Are you feeling lost or stuck? Got something that's bothering you or holding you back that you want to change? Making the changes in your life that you want could be faster and more simple than you think. Perhaps you are being held back by fears or phobias, a lack of confidence, or self-esteem issues, we can work together to help you achieve your goals.
I have a background in psychology and community mental health as well as being trained in a range of hypnotherapeutic styles and other techniques including meditation and mindfulness.
I'm passionate about working with anxiety, depression and chronic health conditions including autoimmunity and CFS/ME. In my practice, I regularly see people coming in who have ended up over-worked, stressed and burnt out and we work together to build them a life they're excited to be in.
"I was quite skeptical when I started working with Abbey, but within just a couple of sessions I noticed a massive difference in my energy levels. I've stopped being in reactive mode and am now proactively working to keep the improvements coming!"
"Abbey has a really kind and gentle manner. I felt really safe talking to her and she really listened to me. She made really tough conversations easy and I laughed a lot which I wasn't expecting. I'm looking forward to working with her again"
Training, qualifications & experience
Before you commit to starting therapy with anyone, you want to know a little about them…
In life, I’ve usually taken the path less traveled, and as a result of this, I have a wealth of life experiences that I can bring to the table. My mum has always said that if I can do things the hard way, I will. I love to learn and explore and I’m very curious about what’s going on in their world and our relationships and experiences and how we can make them better.
This curiosity has paid off, because I’ve studied and learned a wide array of different skills that I can employ at the right moment to help you make the changes you want.
- Bachelor of Social Science (Psychology)
- Diploma of Clinical Hypnotherapy (Distinction)
- Diploma of Counselling
