Making Changes is now more than just me, it’s Ali Plowright, Abigail Plowright and Claire Plowright

Ali Plowright has been working with individuals aboutimage and groups for 16 years, and now both her daughters are working therapeutically, in different modalities.  Claire Plowright in Massage, and Abigail Plowright working with children and parents as well as individuals.

Ali’s interest comes from a deep desire to understand what being Human really means. How relationships, in many contexts, work and how our early experience of life shapes us, or not! Her own journey through life has had many ups and downs and she uses that knowledge, wisdom, intuition and learned skills to enable others to make a difference to their lives, both corporately and therapeutically.

Its difficult to say exactly what Ali does…. you could say she’s a psychotherapist, a coach or a facilitator and she is all of those and much, much more! She asks difficult questions and then offers support while you find and manage the tricky answers… Ali brings an outside approach, a creative thinking partner, an independent ear, fresh insight…. Ali supports many people in many contexts and works both face to face and over the telephone.

Ali’s life began in a family of seven children and at a very early age she realised that she was an observer and a searcher. She observed language, actions and relationships and searched for meaning and sense. What she found didn’t make a lot of sense at all until she began her own therapy and ultimately her training which led her to work with others.

Ali has a private practice in Derbyshire and also works throughout the UK and overseas. Ali works on a 1 2 1 basis, facilitates and runs workshops. The focus of sessions is always to bring understanding through honesty, self-discovery and self-leadership.

Ali’s young life was centred around a family business and she grew up understanding the benefits and the stresses that that brought. She has had involvement at Board level with two fast growing companies and understands the need for support, cohesion, congruence and acknowledgement. Ali supports CEO’s, MD’s and those progressing professionally. Ali also feels that in many businesses today staff are seen as a cost rather than an asset and the Human Element of the business can be overlooked. This can lead to low morale, productivity and ultimately low sales. Therefore, Ali is interested in working alongside individuals, teams and groups who need support to achieve and move forward.

Ali believes that her skill can only grow as she continues to learn from those she respects. She knows that for her to give the best of her ability to you she has a duty to keep researching and learning for herself, honing her old skills and gathering new ones.
Come and experience a workshop or retreat in Derbyshire and benefit from the peaceful suroundings, the learnings and the fun. And visiting the Peak District is stuning whatever the tme of year!

As one of her recent client’s said:  Ali, it was, as before, a pleasure to meet with you yesterday. Don’t underestimate the difference you’ve made already, the changes have been more than you could imagine.

Abigail Plowright

I used to experience the world with deep empathy but was easily overwhelmed, I suffered from a lack of confidence and felt misunderstood some of the time.  Social interactions used to be difficult and I would much rather be washing up in the kitchen than actively talking and making connections with people at a party. I found friendships difficult at times and finding friends difficult too. For a lot of my life I tried to ‘fit in and be the same as others’ but without much success as it wasn’t me, and I realised that  it was exhausting and I wasn’t being authentic. I also used to feel alone in my world, not from a place of pity but wondering where the others people who experienced life like me were, the other Highly Sensitive People.

It’s awful to feel misunderstood, to feel isolated and stuck, so I began to explore how I could succeed in a world that overwhelmed me. I began my journey as a Silversmith and created beautiful jewellery but I realised that although working in this way fulfilled me creatively it wasn’t quite ‘it’.  There was something missing, I wanted to support others who felt alone, disconnected and sometimes lost.  So I combined my creativity with therapy and became a qualified Integrative Therapist using the arts and therapeutic play.  Fast forward 8 years, and i’ve combined all my experience, knowledge and learning and i’m now an experienced Specialist working with children, young people and adults who struggle for various reasons and many are Highly Sensitive People and Children. Humans who find being in the world a struggle and who want to feel understood, heard and find their success in life. Everybody has the ability to create their life, they can learn to thrive, feel fulfilment and success and fully experience connection with others.
I work face to face, via Skype or telephone. If any of this sounds familiar to you and you’re curious to learn how I might be able to support you, let’s chat!
Call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you.   ‭07855 702763‬


One of Abigail’s recent clients said “I faced many challenges when I first came into contact with Abigail Plowright.  I was faced with a very challenging home life with my two children. I also had problems communicating with my children and managing constructively their emotional outbursts.  Furthermore, I had lost a lot of self-confidence in my own parenting skills and ability to communicate effectively with my children.

The change I experienced was largely down to Abigail’s empathetic, yet knowledgeable approach to my situation.  She had a range of strategies for me to try and was able to break through my natural reticence towards any kind of ‘therapy’.  Her approach allowed me to see my situation from my children’s perspective and enabled me to re-connect with them once more.   I saw over the months how my very angry son became less angry.  Much of this was a result of a change in my attitude towards his behaviour and who he was as an individual.
Abigail has both patience and perserverance in equal measure.  She also has a very keen sense of humour – which is always useful in difficult situations.
I recommend Abigail unreservedly.
