Hayley Clark ADV.DIP.Couns, MBACP, BA (Hons)
I don't know who I am right now. I have no idea where I am going. How did I even get to this point and what on earth do I do now to get to where I need to be?
Many of us experience these thoughts and feelings at some point in our lives and this can leave us feeling lost, anxious and alone. Feeling lost can be painful and confusing. Maybe you've experienced a physical loss through a recent bereavement or relationship break up. Perhaps you're experiencing a more conceptual loss of confidence, control and direction in life or perhaps you just cannot quite put your finger on it but you can't escape from the fact that you wake up feeling unfulfilled or go to bed wondering where your life's heading.
I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space in which to talk freely and to be genuinely heard, to think and to feel, to explore and to discover. Whilst out in the world you may feel boxed in by the specific roles expected of you, in the counselling space you are just you and my role is to help you to use this time and freedom to explore, to seek your own answers and to help yourself to bring about the changes you would like to make. Ultimately, we are working together to help you to regain control and inner peace in your life.
I work using a Humanistic Integrative approach and am therefore able to use various styles of counselling according to what works most effectively for you in our sessions. My experience has included working with clients in a GP surgery and in the North London Hospice and within these contexts, I have worked with a variety of presenting issues including depression, anxiety, bereavement, self-harm, abuse, stress, prolonged illness, relationship difficulties and anger issues.
I currently have my own private practice and work in Oakwood N14, Barnet EN4 and Enfield EN2.
