About me

Hi I'm Hayley! Thanks for taking a look at my profile. You are so welcome here.

I hope you find all of the information you need, but should you have any questions, please don't hesitate to send me a message and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

My Approach to Counselling:

As an Integrative Counsellor, I use a blend of different therapeutic approaches. This way of working allows me to draw upon the models and theories that I feel will resonate most with your needs, meaning our work together will be as unique as you are.

My main approach is Person-Centred, which is based upon the belief that given the right conditions, a person can reach their full potential and become their true self. These conditions are created through nurturing our therapeutic relationship.

I also believe that healing is about the whole person, and in this, we need to look at all parts of our self... the mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual.

So, in addition to using western psychological approaches, I weave in practices and philosophies from other energetic and spiritual practices such as breathwork, reiki, meditation and mindfulness.

It's important when exploring our emotions that we're able to feel safe and supported in the process, so I will work with you on practical tools and techniques to help you feel more grounded both during our sessions and in-between them too.

I have experience of working with a number of issues, including; stress, anxiety, panic, low mood, depression, self-worth, self-esteem, relationship issues,  loss and grief, life transitions and change.

How We Can Work Together:

I am currently offering sessions both online and in person. 

Working online means you can have your counselling sessions from the comfort of your own home and also means that we'll be able to work together, even if you're not local to me.

My face to face sessions are held at a cosy and peaceful space in Newbury town centre.

When you get in touch, we will exchange a message or two to arrange an initial session and I will share some further information with you about what you can expect when working with me.

Our initial session will be used to discuss what you would like to gain from counselling, so that I know how I am best able to help and support you. This first session will also give you the opportunity to meet me to ensure you would be comfortable in opening up to me and to ask any questions you might have about counselling.

I offer both short and long-term counselling depending on your needs, which we can discuss during our first session together.

Sessions are usually on a once weekly basis, held at the same day and time each week.

If you feel like you’d like to explore working together, please get in touch to arrange an initial session or with any questions you might have about working together.

You've already taken the biggest step in your journey to getting help by being here today. So if you feel you might be ready, I am here to support you along your way.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I am particularly passion about supporting millennials with navigating the changes bought about by quarter-life. Including themes of self-confidence, self-esteem, self-worth, comparison, identity and purpose.

I also have an interest in spiritual growth and how this can shape and change our view of the world and how we live in it.
