Hi, I’m Hayley and I am a counsellor currently living in Newbury, West Berkshire
My own personal experience of counselling sparked my desire to support others in a more meaningful way, using my experience to help others make sense of some of the difficulties life can present them with.
I have spent the last 4 years counselling others and in particular have focussed on supporting young adults.
Using my experience in counselling and coaching and everything I have learnt along the way, I support my clients through their challenges to lead a happier and less stressful life.
My qualifications were completed with the Counselling and Psychotherapy Training Academy (CPTA) and were accredited by the Counselling & Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body (CPCAB).
My most recent qualification is a Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling focussed on both Person-Centred and Psychodynamic approaches. Which means that I use a combination of theoretical approaches in my work. Find out more about what this means on the About Counselling page.
I am an individual member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) which means I abide by their Ethical Standards to keep my clients supported and safe.
I am currently volunteering for Time to Talk West Berkshire, counselling young people aged 11-25. Working with young people is a passion of mine as I believe that building a strong foundation and dealing with mental health issues from a young age can help support a greater self-awareness and resilience throughout the challenges life presents us with as we grow up.
