Hayley Watson

Psychodynamic Counsellor

About Hayley Watson

I am a professional counsellor working in Cheltenham with adults and young adults. In addition to my private practice, I have worked with staff and young adults in a Higher Education setting for over 5 years.

Some of the issues I work with include:
• Anxiety
• Depression
• Bereavement and loss
• Stress at work
• Issues around bullying
• Relationship problems
• Panic attacks
• Anger
• Sexuality
• Confusion around Identity
• Family concerns
• Illness
• Suicidal feelings
• Self-esteem and confidence issues
• Work/life balance
• Trauma

While this list covers many things, we are all individual and not one person’s story is the same. I believe everyone deserves to be listened to because their story is unique and just as relevant as any other.

Prior to setting up private practice, I worked at Gloucestershire Counselling Service (GCS) as an Assessor and Counsellor for their Adult, Schools and Employee Welfare Services and have gained a number of years experience of working with individuals presenting with a wide range of difficulties.

I hold a Foundation degree in Psychodynamic Counselling Theory and Practice (awarded by the University of the West of England) and a Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling Theory and Practice (awarded by Westminster Pastoral Foundation, WPF).

As a professional counsellor, I am committed to regular, ongoing training to ensure my own continued professional development.

Following completion of an Accreditation program I became a Registered Member of the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC), I am also a Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). I work within the BPC Code of Ethics and the Ethical Framework for Counselling Professions outlined by the BACP.
