I am a qualified hypnotherapist, and I also hold further qualifications in counselling.
I began my working life on local government, working with people living in poor housing conditions and disabled people. After having children, my life took a change in direction and I trained to become a hypnotherapist.
My ethos is that you, the client, are central to the hypnotherapy process. After your free initial consultation, you will be given a bespoke programme that is unique and individual to you by adopting a person centered approach. For some people, there will be the need to look at your past history and resolve those issues before you are able to move forward with your life. And for others, you will only want to work on a solution without going back into the past. Each of these options has its own merits.
I offer a FREE initial consultation to all prospective clients so we can find out if hypnotherapy can be of help to you, and to make sure that you feel comfortable with me - which in my mind is essential to the therapy process
I work within in the areas listed below, if what you are looking for help with is not listed here please feel free to contact me. I also have personal experience of dealing with children with autism and to enable me to work with children, I have an enhanced DBS.
- Increasing Confidence
- Low self-esteem
- Weight loss
- Stop Smoking
- Pain Management
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Exam Nerves
- Phobias and Fears
The key to success with hypnotherapy is that the route that we choose is right for you. If you have a question that has not been answered or you are unsure then please contact me. Please never be afraid to ask me a question, you may feel that it is trivial, but in actuality it could be very important!
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a member of the National Hypnotherapy Society, and I hold a certificate in Hypnotherapy and Counselling Skills (Cert. Hyp CS). This is an AIM Awards Level 3 Certificate in Hypnotherapy & Counselling Skills.

I work with parents and carers who are struggling with the stress that their lives have on them and are in need of support through the use of counselling skills.

"Hello everyone, just thought I would express my experience with Working with Lynda. I have been working with this lovely lady for 5 weeks now and she has turned my life around and i'm truly amazed at the results I have seen. She is absolutely amazing at her job and is very passionate in wanting to help people and very giving of her time to ensure you get the best results, it is all about you when you work with her, she delivers alot more than just the hypnosis itself, she can also listen to you and help make sense of your feelings and why you do the things you do, her experiences in life have given her such a variety of knowledge which I feel aids her in being such a caring and loving person wanting to help others. She is a very genuine lady and I am so glad that our paths met and that she helped and is still helping me rebuild my life. If you think this could help you then I highly recommend this lovely lady 110% and she will change your life that is for sure, you won't be sorry, you will see your life through a fresh pair of eyes. I am truly thankful to Lynda for all of her time and work and I am enjoying working through my journey of discovery and wouldn't want to do that with anyone else." HC
"Lynda has helped me immensely over the past five weeks. I have found the hypnotherapy sessions incredibly relaxing; I am in pain most days but during the sessions my pain goes and it is wonderful to have experienced such a feeling of deep relaxation, peace and calmness in what is usually a chaotic world. Lynda has guided me safely towards improved self esteem and a sense of control over negative influences in my life. I can highly recommend this type of therapy with Lynda to anyone who is feeling emotionally drained, tired or low. She is an amazing lady with a really empathic nature who can really help sort out deep-rooted issues. I have realised I do not have to suffer any more, I can use her recorded sessions to help restore balance in my life, whenever I need to. Thank you Lynda, you have helped me more than I imagined was possible." DW
