Anxiety and Depression

The number of people reporting high levels of anxiety has sharply elevated during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Over a third (37.4%) of adults in Great Britain said that the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has affected their well-being between 3 April and 10 May 2020. *Stats from Office for national statistics

Anxiety disorders affect 40 million adults in the United States with 85% of adults in a 2018 study experiencing regular bouts of stress in the UK. Stress and anxiety are starting to affect people from a much younger age, with more children than ever on medication or being treated for disordered eating or self-harm. Co-dependence, addiction and uncontrollable anger as well as dis-ease are just some of the ways that our stress and anxiety manifests.

With advice and support, we will put into action a plan that will change your life. This will be a collaborative relationship, in which you will need not only to “help”, but also to experimentally follow the advice I give and you will experience change. Rediscover happiness.

I have personally experienced anxiety, and using my story went onto publish my BOOK, to help others break free of anxiety.

YES! It's convenient, easy to access and just as effective as working face to face. We're all becoming more accustomed to meeting people online via Zoom and other video calling software.

"I‘ve always struggled to manage my anxiety and have tried all sorts of different therapies in the past. I contacted Hayley and immediately felt that she “got me”! I started my journey with her and felt positive change right from the first session. Hayley listened and understood. I participated in online hypnotherapy sessions using headphones and it was just like being in the same room as her. He voice is hypnotic and I easily found myself drifting into a trance. The results of these sessions were powerful and instant! I felt relaxed, energised and renewed! Hayley is skilled, professional, encouraging and empowering! I would highly recommend that everyone invest in the own personal development and see immediate results with Hayley".

Hayley has extraordinary skill and expertise. I sought her help to deal my situational anxiety. I was suffering from intense fear of specific work situations.  After a few sessions with Hayley, I found I was able to face the tasks I had feared with more equanimity. She has equipped me with some powerful self- help techniques. Thank you so much, Hayley. - A. Piore

loved my sessions with Hayley. I learnt a lot about my values and needs abs it allowed me to get clear on what I want for my life. I loved all the hypnotherapy sessions and felt so relaxed and invigorated at the same time. Feeling great! - V. Czartowoski

Hayley is an amazing coach! I loved our sessions together. If you are considering working with her I would definitely say go for it! - L. Clancy

I want to thank Hayley for how she has changed my life for the better. At first I was skeptical because of how things would work with the current pandemic, and the sessions being carried out over zoom but to my amazement so far so good the treatment and sessions have been top class. Never did I imagine being sent into a deep form of hypnosis via a zoom meeting but even on the first session I was blown away.  IT WORKS!!!! - J. Steadman

I found Hayley’s details online and am 2 months in, I needed a life reset after a tough year, Initially unsure of the impact on Zoom, however relaxing in my home while listening to Hayley online has worked really well and I am in a much better place as a result of the coaching and feel confident with my new skills and tools acquired in these sessions to be back leading a balanced life. - A. Hawker
