Welcome, I’m Hayley the Counsellor.
As a counsellor I work to empower people, to restore health and happiness, to teach coping skills, to improve relationships, and to manage stress.
Working with adults, adolescents, couples and families. With an eclectic training background, I will be able to adjust my approach, depending on your needs.
As a Counsellor, I have been fortunate to work at inpatient specialised care addiction treatment facilities. Where patients primarily received treatment for process and chemical addiction, including support for trauma, personality disorders, anxiety, burn out and depression.
In 2017 I moved into private practice in Hermanus.
I offer face to face and Skype sessions.
Languages: English and Afrikaans.
I can assist you with
