Abigael Eldred Psychologist , CM2
I am passionate about helping others "be the best they can be" and positive mental health is a significant part of this. My working roles for the last 20 years have enabled me to meet with many people who feel they are unable to reach their potential and so they have used therapy in order to manage and overcome feelings of uncertainty and emotional distress and move forward with their lives. Therapy is not only used to explore past experiences but also to enable people in making significant changes to their present and future experiences.
I also continue to work for the NHS and enjoy working with those who may have specific diagnoses including, anxiety, depression, OCD, PTSD, bipolar disorderand trauma. I have been fortunate to offer this work to individuals, couples, families and groups.
I am trained in a range of therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT),Solution Focussed Therapy and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). I am also working towards becoming an accredited therapist in Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), as trauma work is of particular interest to me.
I offer sessions depending on individual needs and this can include evening and weekend appointments.
