Freedom Counselling Guernsey

About me

“You can't go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending”  C.S. Lewis 

Hello, my name is Hayley and I am a Qualified Integrative Counsellor.  My therapy room is based in St Sampson’s, where there is plenty of parking, offering a confidential and safe space to talk.  I offer a free (no obligation) initial session to see whether we are the ‘right fit’ and can work together.  This will give you a chance to tell me your goals for therapy and voice any questions you might have.  I work with young people, adults and couples.  I offer online and face to face sessions. 

I often help people with anxiety, depression, abuse (past or current) trauma, eating disorders, bereavement, stress, relational issues and much more.  Within the therapeutic relationship it is important to have trust.  I will offer a safe space, support and empathy, empowering you to find solutions to your problems. My approach is client led, giving you full control of what you want to share in the session.  I often use creative interventions (if this works for you) as well as draw on various models such as: 

.  Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
.  Transactional Analysis
.  Attachment Theory
.  Inner Child Therapy 
.  Gestalt Therapy
.  Psychodynamic Therapy  

Please do get in touch either via email, phone or text to arrange an appointment. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I completed my Counselling training in the UK and Qualified as an Integrative Counsellor in 2021 with a Diploma of Higher Education (DipHE, Level 5), Accredited through Middlesex University.  I now run my own private practice called Freedom Counselling Guernsey.  I volunteered with the Trauma Recovery Centre (TRC) in Guernsey for a short while, as well as volunteering and working with the Guernsey Counselling Service and Relate UK/Guernsey. 

I am an individual member with The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and a registered member with The Association of Christian Counsellors (ACC).  I am fully insured and hold an Enhanced DBS Certificate.

Key details

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit gov.uk , or contact this professional directly

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

There is plenty of parking and wheelchair access, as well as toilet facilities.
