Hello there, how are you feeling, really?

I’m Hayley,

I’m a Counsellor who can help you to live a happier and more fulfilling life, by supporting you in having a greater understanding of yourself and to stop your anxieties taking over.

I provide a space where you’ll be able to talk openly that feels safe and supportive, helping you to reflect on your feelings and how you can change your ways of thinking for the better.


– Do you feel unable to switch off or can’t stop worrying about things?

– Do your anxieties keep you up at night or hold you back from what you want to do?

– Do you feel helpless and have lost your direction in life?

If this sounds like you, I can help you to feel:

– More in control of your thoughts and feelings and how you react to situations

– More confident in making decisions about what you need and saying ‘no’ to those things that don’t serve you

– More able to move forward in life and do the things you really want to

If you’re ready to make a change, contact me below to see how I can help you.
