Abbey Lawless

Psychologist, Management Consultant, Coach & Entrepreneur, Abbey Lawless brings a progressive perspective to all aspects of her Psychological Practice, Management Consultancy and Client and Customer Interactions.

A mind that practices present awareness by remaining in the now and not in the past or the future will naturally sculpt away the clutter or white noise so easily influenced by today’s bustling lifestyle. This letting go and true presence will seamlessly allow for a serene stillness which will then further open the window to hearing, understanding, claiming and embodying one’s emotions as a guidance system to navigate life. The freed mind and emotions coupled with a body that is maintained through a gentle practised health and fitness regimen is the essence of the journey. My philosophy is simply this. With intent, I choose to live my best life.” – Abbey Lawless.
