Hi, I’m Abby and welcome to my counselling page.

I am a qualified counsellor who has a number of years experience of counselling adults with a wide range of issues.  I work with clients privately and I also specialise within the NHS as an Early Trauma Crisis Intervention counsellor, working with people who have experienced sexual assault.

In addition to this, I am a qualified Narrative Exposure Therapist. Narrative Exposure Therapy (NET) is a treatment for survivors of multiple traumatic events who are suffering from the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).  The basic theory behind Narrative Exposure Therapy is that by talking through, and processing in detail, traumatic events in chronological order, you can slowly and methodically repair negative associations and responses, allowing you to live without the constant effects of trauma.

I can help you explore your issues in an empathic, safe and supportive environment, bringing a deeper understanding of your situation. 

Starting counselling can be a daunting and challenging prospect for many but my experience with my clients tells me that it is one of the most valuable gifts you can give to yourself.  The rewards can range from a feeling of contentedness to absolutely life-changing.

Working together with people to join the dots of their lives and grow as people is nothing short of a privilege for me and I am most definitely on a journey with every single one of them.  There is nothing more inspiring than watching people find hope where they felt there was none and this is what my practice is built upon.
