My name is Abigail Nelson. I am a registered dramatherapist based in Edinburgh, Scotland. I provide one-to-one, in person therapy for adults and teenagers at A Quiet Room by the ShoreI currently have availability on Fridays.


I also run creative wellness retreats, workshops, events and projects

I am passionate about creating spaces for people to foster deep and soulful connection with themselves and others. In my work I draw on story and myth, nature, meditation, symbol and metaphor, art-making and embodiment to create a unique creative language with each client to explore their inner world.

"For a long time I've really struggled to engage with something and for the first time (even not feeling great), I didn't miss a single session. I knew I'd find friendly faces there, beautiful smiles and the support I just needed to cheer me up and feel better! The dramatherapy group has everything you need: relaxing, laughing, sharing, feeling safe and creating in a very comfy environment"

Dramatherapy is a creative psychotherapy. In a session we might use talking, story-making, objects, movement, art or music to explore and express our inner worlds. You may go to dramatherapy to work through a particular issue, experience or relationship. You might just want to get to know yourself better. Whatever brings you to therapy, my aim is to create an open, creative and playful space - whether one-to-one or in a group - where you can feel safe and supported enough to face the difficult stuff.

"I was always made to feel really comfortable during the retreat. Abigail has a very calming presence that makes you feel heard and understood"
