Hello my name is Hayley and I am an integrative counsellor. I am caring, approachable, non judging and offer a confidential space for you to share your story and feel heard. I am here to listen and support you on your journey to freedom.
People can sometimes feel like a bird trapped in a cage, longing to be free. I can help you feel safe, offer empathy and hope for a better future. Sometimes difficult things happen to us in life and we just need someone to talk too, who are not friends or family. At times it can feel like we are alone in our struggles and that no one understands our pain. I often work with people struggling with stressful life events and feeling emotionally overwhelmed, as well as people with relational problems. By exploring and processing past and current issues, healing and freedom can begin.
I start with a Person-Centred approach, giving you full autonomy and control of what you want to share in the session. Perhaps you feel ‘stuck’ and need support to look at things from a different perspective? As an integrative counsellor, I often use creative interventions (if you are comfortable with this) as well as draw on modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Based Counselling, Psychodynamic, Gestalt, Interpersonal Therapy and Systemic Relational approaches when working with couples. These tools can be useful in exploring thoughts, feelings and behaviors.
Training, qualifications & experience
In 2018 I began my counselling journey, working toward a BA (Hons) Degree in integrative counselling, accredited through Middlesex University. I qualified in June 2021 with a Diploma in Higher Education (DipHE). I am working toward a BA (Hons) degree in counselling. I now run a private practice known as Freedom Counselling Guernsey.
My experience includes working with the Guernsey Counselling Service, the Trauma Recovery Centre (Guernsey) and Relate Guernsey, working with relational issues including couples work. I offer online therapy, as well as face to face counselling in Guernsey.

I regularly attend courses to increase my counselling knowledge and skills.

This means I am able to offer clients up to date information and a professional service. Please get in touch if I can help you in any way.
