Hayley Stanton

Director & Coach at Quiet Connections CIC

Hayley is passionate about changing the culture of shame around those of us who are quieter by speaking the unspoken and reframing 'quiet'. Social anxiety is a huge, unspoken issue affecting up to 12% of the population, yet despite its debilitating nature, it is particularly hidden and misunderstood and often goes unrecognised, with people experiencing social anxiety frequently unable to access the support they need. Hayley personally understands how feeling anxious and avoidant socially can affect all aspects of life and is therefore determined to start conversations and increase understanding and support.

As an NLP Practitioner and a Certified mBIT Coach, with an ILM Level 3 Award in Coaching, Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training and a Degree in Health, Hayley is purposeful about using her personal experiences and professional knowledge and skills to empower and unite people who are feeling socially anxious and not good enough; whilst also raising awareness and increasing understanding, empathy and creative solutions among family, friends, educators and employers.

Hayley is the founding Director of Quiet Connections CIC; a social enterprise that offers coaching, workshops and community groups for people who feel socially anxious, and those around them. Bringing like-minded people together, Quiet Connections creates a community of understanding and a safe place to learn how to manage anxieties, grow in confidence, make friends and practice social abilities. 

Quiet Connections has delivered workshops and coaching for a variety of organisations in the South West, including Cornwall College, University of Exeter, Next Steps South West, Pluss, The CHAOS Group, Cornwall Development Company, Cornwall Neighbourhoods for Change, Pentreath, Cornwall Rural Community Charity, Access Training, WILD Young Mums and Cornwall Refuge Trust. Quiet Connections also promotes creative self-expression and story-telling within their community, providing means for people’s voices to be heard through awareness-raising exhibitions. In addition, Hayley has spoken at a number of events including Cornwall Business Fair with Cornwall School for Social Entrepreneurs; the Faith & Mental Health Day organised by Transformation Cornwall and the Diocese of Truro; and the Towards Zero Suicide Conference at the invitation of the Towards Zero Suicide Alliance Cornwall.

If you would like to discuss coaching, workshops, speakers for your event, hosting our exhibition, or collaboration, Hayley is contactable by email or though LinkedIn.
