Hi, my name is Hayley, welcome to my profile. I am a CBT and Person Centred Counsellor.
My therapeutic approach is based on the belief that each of us carries within ourselves the wisdom and tools to initiate our own healing process, the therapeutic relationship then becomes a facilitation of a return to self.
Through my own journey of recovery and successfully sustaining sobriety I have become a believer in being able to reinvent your life.
To address addiction is often very difficult and takes incredible courage. But the gifts of recovery from addiction are tremendous.
As your therapist I will quickly identify the causes, conditions and underlying concerns that are causing your pain.
I will work with you to develop healthy coping skills enabling you to become free from addictive and destructive behaviours. We will work together to achieve your goals giving your life meaning and purpose.
I have experience counselling in prisons and working with clients who suffer from depression and other mood disorders, anxiety, grief, relational problems and other mental health related issues.
You are the expert of your life. Its my role to provide a supportive, non-judgemental environment where you can be understood. In such an environment you have the ability to explore what is important in your life and identify obstacles that may be blocking you from moving forward.

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.
