I am an Integrative Counsellor, this means that I can alter my way of working to better suit my client's personal needs. Working this way means that I can bring different skills and theories into session that I feel my client may benefit from rather sticking to just one counselling theory. I believe that a counselling journey needs to as unique as the person embarking on it.
The aim of my counselling service is to help people work towards a brighter future, one step at a time. Working on your mental health can feel like a huge scary journey but what I like to do with my clients is to break the journey down in steps so the journey isn't scary and that the client is in charge of their journey every step of the way.
Each of us can experience hard times in life, which can leave us feeling overwhelmed, anxious, scared, depressed and stressed. With counselling we can support you while you learn and develop skills that can help you through life's challenges.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Abigail Haywood. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
She makes me feel comfortable and always pushes me to think of positive ways of looking at my life
My therapist Abigail has been extremely helpful and our sessions have been useful.
Abigail created a comfortable space for me to open up about how I was feeling, just by listening and providing that space for me to unload everything out loud to try and make sense of it in my own brain really helped.
Also she was good with working with me to highlight the key areas I wanted to work on in the sessions and provided me with relevant tools/ help sheets which were extremely useful and allowed me to reflect and notice certain things.
In addition, she was very flexible when it came to arranging sessions and was understanding when I had to re-schedule/ log on late, also very efficient in starting sessions on time and scheduling next one.
Furthermore, I am very happy that I got Abigail as my therapist she has truly helped me to come full circle and be excited for the future. I would highly recommend her to someone if needed.
