I have been working with Abigail for over 5 months and she has been immensely helpful in equipping me with tools, helping me discover fresh perspectives and new ways of thinking about my ongoing challenging situation. I feel empowered, stable and hopeful. She is always extremely empathetic and kind. She has a fantastic sense of humour paired with so much wisdom and knowledge. I feel very safe and very lucky to be working with her. She is the most amazing therapist I have ever met.

She is attentive and listens, keeps an open mind ready to work with me towards achieving my goals. Yet keeps me accountable. I find myself able to pull up stuffs deeply buried and work through my trauma without feeling judged. So I get empathy with a gentle nudge to keep working on overcoming my struggle. I would recommend her if you are looking for someone who gives that feeling of "oh she gets me" because I felt she understood me and I am really complex

I started therapy a few months ago with Abigail and it has been really great. I have already learnt so much about myself and my emotions.
She listens attentively and asks thought-provoking questions that really get you thinking. I really recommend. Thank you Abigail.

Abigail B is excellent! She asks appropriate questions and narrows in and brings one back to the topic. She is kind and thoughtful but understanding and sees where I am trying to get to before I do! Thanks Abigail!

She challenged me to think about my feelings more and be more intentional about my actions. She listened and added helpful advice while checking in with how I was feeling.
