Hayley Parker Dip.Couns MBACP[ REG] Experienced Counsellor and Supervisor
Seeking counselling can be difficult especially if the person feels overwhelmed by what is happening, I can offer you a safe place to be able to be heard and to explore these feelings and experiences that have brought you to counselling whether its for short or long term therapy. I am a Humanistic integrative therapist which means i work with several theories such as Person centred, Gestalt and TA and work with each client to establish which ones would be beneficial to them.
What I enjoy most about being a therapist is the relational building and the growth that happens within that, I believe every individual should have the opportunity to be listened to in a supportive enviroment and work towards some healing.
I have experience working with most experiences or difficulties clients may have such as relationship problems , attachment issues, depression, anxiety, bereavement, childhood difficulties, emotional, physical or sexual abuse, domestic violence and many more.
I also have 8 years experience working extensively with Trauma survivors whether recent or historical abuse, I use the 3 stage trauma model to work on symptons that resonate see below.:
- Attachment disorders
- Mental Health Issues
- Self harm
- Dissociative disorder/episodes of this
- Dissociative identity disorder.
- Emotional unstable personality disorder.
- Emotional impact on the brain/individual
- Physical symptoms.
I am a registered member of the BACP (MBACP) and adhere to their ethical framework to ensure I work safely with clients.
If you decide this is the counselling for you we can:
- Arrange an initial session/telephone call where we can discuss your counselling needs and goals.
- We can then meet on a weekly basis, either face to face, online/telephone.
Please get in touch if you feel i can support you further.
I look forward to hearing from you.
