Hayley Stanton

Director & Coach at Quiet Connections
Hayley shares her personal stories of feeling shy, socially anxious, ‘not good enough’ and fearfully avoiding the good things in life. Growing her confidence through coaching, gradually stretching her comfort zone and connecting with others, she now uses everything she has learned to help other people grow their confidence in her role as a coach. Hayley is passionate about connecting people with similar stories and creating safe, supportive spaces to make friends and try new things. Hayley dreams of a time when all of the strengths, skills and goodness in ‘quiet’ is recognised and appreciated as readily as being bold, gregarious, and comfortable in the spotlight is right now.

One wonderful creative organisation that we work with is New Day Knitwear and you might like to learn more about Founder Stacie and what she does at New Day and the emotional benefits of designing and making.

This is Stacie’s interview with CHBN Radio’s Adam Carpenter where they spoke about her personal battle with mental health and how it led to her setting up New Day to help others in a similar position and how knitting and crocheting can help you cope with and manage instances of anxiety and depression.
