CREATING POSITIVE CHANGE FOR ADULTS, CHILDREN & YOUNG PEOPLE
ABOUT MY WORK
Learning to thrive no matter what life throws
Reconnecting with values to live with vitality
(Formally Abigail Barragry Psychologies)
I am a qualified Child and Educational Psychologist and an integrative therapist, with a broad and varied practice of over 15 years working with adults, teenagers and childen to fulfil their potential and overcome barriers.
I use an integrated, evidence based psychological practice to help individuals become 'unstuck', reconnect to their values and regain balance and wellbeing. This is through individual therapy in a clinic in Sheffield, virtually and via work within school settings.
I pride myself in using a boundaried, sharing approach. A trauma informed, relational approach. I do not use an expert model, I always assume the person I work with, is the expert in their own life. I have experinced trauma in my own life and have a diagnosis of ADHD, both of which particulalry help me to relate with and support children and adults who may be neurodivergent or who have encountered adverse experiences.
Much of my work often centres upon:
connection to values
flexibility of thought
inner child and the importance of 'play'
Evidence-based psychological processes
I hold full registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), the Association for Educational Psychologists (AEP) and am a member of the Association for Child and Adolescent Mental Health (ACAMH)
