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.

Do you feel anxious in social situations? Do you think people are watching you and judging you? You’re not alone.

Stacie, Gemma, Hayley and Sarah discuss feeling socially anxious; avoiding university; the fear of job seeking; and feeling like no one else understands.

This video is part of Falmouth University student, Verena Wegmann’s social anxiety campaign, sharing the message that you don’t have to be ashamed of how you feel and you are not alone. Special thanks to Verena for her efforts to spread this important message!
