About me and my therapy practice

Hi, I’m Abby. I know finding support in times of need can be overwhelming, so thank you for being here. If you’re on this page, I imagine things may be feeling difficult, and you may be seeking a place of comfort to talk openly. Perhaps you’re struggling with feelings of anxiety, depression, coping after a huge life event, struggling with your identity or maintaining relationships. What I hope to offer is a place of healing and growth in which you will feel connected and confident to talk about all that’s coming up for you.

As a relational, trauma informed counsellor, I aim to build a safe and healthy working environment with my clients. In my work I am gentle, holding and empathetic. I am lead by you, and will always focus on going at your pace. Working as a relational therapist means that I also place great value on the fact that a counselling relationship is an equal, balanced relationship. To me this means we are human beings; meeting, building trust, learning, communicating.

My speciality is (but not limited to) working in domestic and sexual abuse, supporting clients through the aftermath of both historic and recent abuse. In this work I have learnt to listen, empower and support my clients to help them grow and navigate their way to a place of healing. Working as a trauma informed counsellor allows me to both understand your trauma, and as we work through it provide awareness and management tools to support how it is affecting your daily life. I believe a trauma informed counselling relationship relies on core values of trust, autonomy and consent.

I hold intersectional and feminist values and am sensitive to both the external and internal factors to our experiences. This means recognising that wider societal issues may impact the work we do, as well as your personal experiences.

I am offering open ended in person sessions in a space in Shrewsbury with disability access, and limited online sessions.
