Hayley Tait MSc., UKCP
Hello, my name is Hayley and I am an Integrative Psychotherapist with a relational/developmental approach. I place value and emphasis on the therapeutic relationship we will build together whilst recognising that our childhood experiences influence the way we learn to be in relationship with others.
Being in relationship with others may be challenging in the present climate of social distancing and worrying about our own safety and the safety of others. We live in uncertain times and are facing new challenges everyday.
This rapid change can cause us to feel vulnerable and anxious, at times like this it can be useful to talk through your fears with someone who can listen with empathy and support you through the challenges ahead. Perhaps family members rely on you for support or perhaps you are a health worker. When others rely on us, we can find it difficult to share our own concerns and vulnerability as we feel the need to be strong for them. This is the time when our own self care is the most important and we need to ensure that we ourselves are getting the support we need.
As an Integrative Psychotherapist I can offer you a safe space where you can share your experience and express your concerns without feeling shame or judgement. At present I am offering online consultations via Zoom until we can safely meet in person.
It takes strength and courage to support others and it takes strength and courage to ask for help. Choosing the right therapist is an important decision and for this reason I offer a free initial consultation giving us an opportunity to discuss what you need for yourself and whether I am the right therapist for you.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Concessions offered for
Whether a life event such as relationship difficulties, separation, divorce or bereavement are getting in the way. Or you feel anxious or depressed and stress is leaving you feeling overwhelmed. Having someone to turn to for support can help.
Eating disorders and addiction can be another way of masking the distress you feel inside. Whilst trauma can leave you feeling cut off from yourself.
Perhaps you are reflecting on a new stage of life such as menopause and feel it would be helpful to have someone to explore your feelings with.
Whatever your current situation I would be happy to hear from you to discuss your concerns.
