Hayley Johnston MSc, BSc, MBACP
Firstly, hello and welcome.
We all experience moments in life where things can feel a little bit heavy. This can come from a range of temporary or ongoing situations such as work stress, friendships and other relationship difficulties. Sometimes we may even experience physical or mental health issues and find ourselves needing warm, caring support from someone else, which can be challenging when you feel you may not have anyone to turn to. You do not have to go through any of those issues alone.
Whatever you may be facing, I can help you to navigate your issues and make self-discoveries, finding your voice, progress in self-belief and inner strength, which are the beginning of positive changes and taking steps forward. I have experience supporting others through very difficult, abusive and one-sided or toxic relationships. If you feel your needs are not being met, yet you still fear to lose your partner, this can feel very distressing. I can provide a safe and trusted space, to listen to you and help support you in these situations.
I have experience in working with people from all walks of life, who may have suicidal ideation, including depression, anxiety, trauma and PTSD. I am particularly knowledgeable about supporting others with chronic conditions and illnesses. I will listen and help you come to your own conclusions, or come to terms with your personal issues. I can help you identify triggers and difficulties which may be hard to pinpoint.
Whatever your interest in therapy might be, I will be happy to discuss further on how counselling may benefit you for no fee, either face to face or over the telephone during a 30 minute appointment. I will hold no judgement towards you in these sensitive matters and offer a confidential listening ear.
I look forward to hearing from you.
