Anxiety and Depression
Embrace Your Journey to Overcoming Anxiety and Finding Lasting Happiness
Been through the anxiety rollercoaster myself, so I totally get how it can leave you feeling worried and on edge. This COVID-19 situation? It's cranked up the anxiety and stress levels big time – like, seriously reported by the Office for National Statistics in Great Britain kind of big. Crazy, right? Even kids are dealing with anxiety earlier than before.
And that's where I come in. My style is all about the big picture. We'll cook up a plan that tackles everything in your life, not just the anxiety bits. Let's get experimental with my guidance – because real changes stick, and happiness and well-being are the ultimate goal.
Oh, and check this out: I've tackled anxiety head-on and even wrote a book about it. So, I've got some serious know-how to share. Just remember, anxiety is normal, but if it's hanging around all day, every day, it might be time to reach out for some pro help.
By blending techniques from different fields like NLP, Clinical Hypnotherapy, and Life Coaching, we're going to score some serious, lasting change. Let's kick anxiety to the curb and find that happy place again.
Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
There are several different anxiety disorders. I have listed below the most common.
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Social Phobia, Specific Phobia, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Panic Disorder, and Agoraphobia.
Physical symptoms of GAD include:
- Difficulty Concentrating
- Muscle Tension
- Sleep Disturbance
The key to this disorder is an excessive amount of anxiety. Someone with GAD would worry excessively about finances, losing their job, the car breaking down, whether they are being a good parent, and coping with difficulties that arise.
GAD can interfere with daily activities, relationships, and quality of life. It is treatable with therapy, medication, or a combination of both.

I’m loving working with Hayley, the mix of coaching and hypnotherapy has been beyond helpful. I love how Hayley tailors each session rather than using a one size fits all approach. I feel like she really listens and takes on board what I respond well to and what I enjoy, and makes the sessions work for me. Hayley will also check in regularly with me to help keep me accountable and I know she’ll be around if I need her support.

With Hayley's guidance, I have grown immensely, both personally and professionally. But it's not just about the knowledge and expertise. Hayley's compassion sets her apart.

I am grateful beyond words.
Hayley really helped me to look at all aspects of my life and work out what was my priority and what I most valued. This helped me to gain focus, motivation and a positive outlook towards my future. Every session we had, it was clear progress was being made. Hayley is calm, patient and a real motivator as well as being able to take the stress out of any possible obstacle. Hayley uses a range of techniques that are tailored to you and I would highly recommend her if you are feeling a bit lost in life.
I have always struggled with fixating over particular issues which would take over my headspace. Hayley has allowed me to free myself from this negative headspace through supporting my subconscious mind and provide strategies to help me overcome this. I can’t thank Hayley enough for her supportive, caring and considerate nature in the sessions. I would recommend Hayley to anyone who is looking to improve the quality of their life. No need to search any further as she is the woman for you!
My sessions with Hayley have made a really positive impact on my health and well-being. Patient, professional and very engaging, Hayley made each session count and she was very responsive to my needs. Whilst our sessions have now finished, I continue to use my personalised hypnotherapy recordings and reap the benefits. I would gladly go back to Hayley in the future if the need arises again. It’s been a real pleasure, thank you Hayley.
I'm so glad I found Hayley, the support and progress since starting to the Ultimate Transformational 3 Month journey has been fundamental to bring about the change that I really needed. Hayley is a great listener, supportive and compassionate.
Took a leap, and so glad I did! I’ve had several sessions and feeling more and more like the best version of myself. Hayley is a true professional, and she goes above and beyond (sending recordings, extra studies, very responsive, etc). Highly recommend!
I am so grateful to Hayley for an amazing , life-changing experience. Just a few sessions already made a huge difference and I cannot wait to move on to our next transformational program. During these unusual and difficult times Hayley taught me means of dealing with anxiety and just be better me. Now I have a better mood , concentration and motivation every single day and I am starting every morning with the smile. Thank you so much Hayley for everything Savva
Hayley is really easy to talk to and open up to and her knowledge on coaching and progression is exemplary. I got a lot out of my sessions with her.
Hayley is a high quality life coach delivering an A* service! From the comfort of my own home I have undergone some life changing sessions with Hayley helping me with anxiety, confidence and just mapping out the future I see and deserve! Not having to leave my house to go to an office for the sessions has helped the process be much more productive as I can remain rested and reflective afterwards. With some activities to do in between sessions, this has also kept me challenged and motivated. Highly recommended and well worth the investment.
My experience with Hayley has been wonderful. I was extremely nervous prior to my sessions, but Hayley instantly put my mind at ease, with clear, honest communication. A very professional approach to ensure you received the very best. The attention Hayley gives into each session is phenomenal, so much care and thought is given to ensure each session provides the very best support and development needed. I'm so glad I took this opportunity to improve and work on myself with the guided help from Hayley, I feel so much better in such a short space of time. I've gained such great life skills. The kindness Hayley has shown me has been and even greater support during this period.
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, which had been building up over years until it had become disabling for me. After a few sessions with Hayley, I found I was able to face the tasks I had feared with more equanimity. I was able to manage them successfully and to feel better about myself and my abilities. She has equipped me with some powerful self- help techniques. Thank you so much, Hayley.
I 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!
Hayley is an amazing coach! I loved our sessions together. If you are considering working with her I would definitely say go for it!
I just want to thank hayley for how she has changed my life for the better, one of my really good friends put me in touch with her as he was having treatment and I noticed how much it had effected him over the last few months and I figured I needed change too. 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, if you are having doubts I can 100% confirm from my experience that hayley is very well reaserched and knows exactly what she is doing and to top it off IT WORKS!!!!
I have been working with Hayley on my business for a couple of months now. I have to say it was the best investment I have made. Hayley totally got me from the beginning. She is a genius with all things technical and takes me through it patiently step by step. Our sessions are productive and fun. Nothing is too much trouble! Thank you Hayley for your continuous encouragement and support. Debs x
First of all I would like to thank Hayley, she has opened my eyes and changed my life for the better. Which I never thought was possible after suffering with depression for over 4 years. But now thinking positive and finally feeling like the best version of myself.
Ive had four sessions with Hayley for a phobia. Not only has it helped immensely with this also in all aspects of my life. She has helped me with self confidence and life goals, i can now see a clear path of the person i want to be,doing the job i want to do. A lovely person with no judgement just friendly but professional. Not only do you receive the sessions but Hayley will send you recordings and personal development to fill in or listen to out side the actual session. I would fully recommend Hayley, for any sort for life counselling. Anne Yull.
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,
Hayley is fantastic! She's an excellent listener, giving me practical advice about tackling anxieties/stresses which act as obstacles for me in my work. She gave me extremely helpful guidance about planning, promoting, marketing, pricing, client on-boarding, relaxation techniques and so much more! I was able to immediately action these and insodoing, I'm starting to believe I can really achieve my full potential in my new business. Will definitely be seeing her on a regular basis! Thank you so much, Hayley!
I started working with Hayley in November having come to a bit of a crossroads in my life. I was approaching 50 with my first grandchild on the way and wanted to feel like I was doing something worthwhile and wanted my children and grandchildren to feel proud of me. I wanted to restart a career after being out of the workplace for over 10 years. Fast forward 4 months and I have just applied for a job as a wellness coach with WW (formerly weight watchers). Hayley has worked on my confidence, self belief and self esteem without it feeling like she’s even done anything. She is professional but also welcoming and friendly and knows what she is taking about. I feel like a different person than I did when I started. My marriage was on the rocks and I felt lost now I’m facing a new bright future with lots of new challenges to look forward to. I would highly recommend Hayley for any of your issues with life, confidence and self belief.
I have Hayley’s fantastic book as well as a variety of her aromatherapy goodies including the pulse points and room sprays. The smells are divine and so relaxing. Highly recommended 💜💜💜
Went to see Hayley at a low point - her infectious enthusiasm and positive, practical suggestions helped to give me more focus and set me on the road to recovery.
I tried hayleys well being range and found it high quality and had amazing therapeutic properties. The scents were amazing too. I have also had clinical hypnosis to help stop smoking with hayley and found the whole experience very relaxing and felt safe through the hole session hayley is a very experienced life coach and this really showed in her work.
WOW what a lady! I wasn't sure what to expect from NLP or what to expect when meeting Hayley. I needed focus in my life, NLP and Hayley have certainly given me that. Love working with her!
I love that Hayley's Wellbeing range is totally natural! I currently have the #4 Clarity Bergamot & Mimosa 100% soy candle, all the oils used are natural too, so this is a great therapeutic range!
In to 3rd session of a 12 week block and finding the experiencing useful. It has allowed me time to re-assess what I how dear, my values, who am I and learn to let it go when needed. Still a long way to go but have first rate support in Hayley who helps to build confidence, provide endless support and make you feel relaxed - can’t wait for some management stress buster work!

Yep, depression's a big one, affecting roughly 1 in 10 people at some point in their lives. Burnout's another heavy hitter, especially in workplaces.
