Are you ready to make a change?

If your usual way of doing things isn't working for you, let's find a way that does.

Hi, I'm Hayley, and I understand how anxiety can impact life

Like everyone else, I’m human. I’ve been through both fantastic and difficult experiences that have shaped who I am and how I help people.

Having my own struggles with anxiety led me to seek out therapy. I wanted to understand myself better, to find ways to manage and cope, and to live on my terms.

 

My life experiences are what led me to become the counsellor I am today. I work with adults, aged 18 years and over, who have challenges with anxiety.

 

My goal is to help you stop feeling overwhelmed and start guiding you to where things feel manageable again.

As an anxiety therapist, I love helping people make positive changes and watching them transform their lives. I am committed to helping you to reach a place where things feel more manageable again.

 

The most rewarding thing about being a counsellor is seeing a person walk away lighter, more free, and excited about their life.

Our Sessions Are Focused On You

In our sessions, you'll have the time and space to step away from all the noise of the world, to be able to find some clarity, to be understood and heard.

It’s important to me to provide a non-judgemental space where you can be yourself,  and to make sure that the process is collaborative.

 

There isn’t a “one size fits all” approach to counselling, so our sessions will be tailored to fit your needs. I draw on various approaches when I work, including Person-Centred, Gestalt, Transactional Analysis (TA), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Solution Focussed Therapies.

I bring supportive and encouraging energy to our sessions. I can understand your experience and help to uncover what's happening under the surface.

 

We'll work together to decide any goals you might want to work towards, and I'll help you towards those, while being flexible along the route.
