Aine Hayes PGDipDth, HDipCouns, Dip Supervision, MBACP
As a practitioner I am a genuine, warm and accepting person who believes that a trusting therapeutic relationship is central to the work.
My experience as an accredited counsellor and therapist has allowed me the opportunity to work with individuals and groups with a variety of issues.
My approach is strengths based: exploring the impact of past experiences and events whilst also focusing upon future goals. My orientation allows me to work both verbally and creatively with clients to help them to tell their story and to explore issues such as:
- relationship difficulties
- depression and anxiety
- family and early childhood issues
- personal development.
The work can be time limited or long term depending on your needs.
I have many years experience as an individual counsellor and group therapist working with men and women, and young people.
I have a particular interest in trauma and attachment issues although I have experience of helping clients explore a wide range of issues.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am an accredited Counsellor and a full member of BACP. I am also a clinical supervisor and a registered Arts Therapist and member of the Health Care Professions Council UK.
I have also done some additional training in CBT, EMDR, Solution Focused Brief Therapy and Trauma Therapy. I also hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Attachment Focused therapy and a Diploma in Supervision.
I also see trainee counsellors and therapists for personal therapy and clinical supervision.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
