Hi I'm Linda, a therapist that offers a friendly comfortable and relaxed service with complete confidentiality. I understand how difficult it is to take that first step of seeing a therapist therefore offering therapy within a comfortable private therapy room, based in Spalford, Newark, Notts.
I have at least 69 ‘5 Star’ reviews which has been independently verified by Freeindex. Please visit;
My location offers a private and quiet environment in the countryside as well as the convenience of only being 15 mins drive from Newark or Lincoln off the A46.
I offer face to face therapy and also Skype for clients outside my local area.
I am a fully qualified Hypnotherapist, Counsellor and Psychosexual Therapist and and have over 16 years experience as a therapist.
I work flexible hours including evenings as I understand you have time commitments.
I have helped many clients to overcome their problems over the years which have included; anxiety, stress, fears and phobias, quit smoking, weight loss, addictions, relationship and sexual issues, depression, confidence and low self esteem, Insomnia and many more (please refer to the list of problem areas that I can help you with).
As I'm also a Psychosexual therapist, I help clients to overcome sexual problems such as; erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, retarded ejaculation, orgasmic problems, loss of desire, vaginismus,(inability to have penetrative sex) dyspareunia (painful sex) or feeling out of control with a sexual addiction.
Please visit my website; www.amethyst-therapy.co.uk for further information about myself and the way I work, as well as more detail about the problem you may be suffering with.
Please call or email me to arrange an initial meeting so I can find out more about your problem, explain how I work and answer any questions you may have. So take that first step, and I look forward to hearing from you soon :-)
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy after studying with the Institute of Clinical Hypnosis (ICH) in London.
I also have PG Dip in Counselling and Psychosexual therapy so I can offer an integrated approach of therapy interventions where necessary.
I am a Registered member of BACP.
I am a member of GHR (General Hypnotherapy Register), COSRT and also do some work for Relate.
Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council
The CNHC encompasses many types of alternative therapy, including hypnotherapy.
In order to be admitted to the register a practitioner must have studied to the National Occupational Standards for that profession/discipline, or have reached the equivalent of the National Occupational Standards through other relevant training or at least three years of experience and been assessed by their peers.
A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.
The General Hypnotherapy Register
Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).
Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.
All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
Information about health conditions (*)
Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting hypnotherapy.
I charge £50 per hour session.
I also offer clients a discount; to pay for 5 sessions upfront and get the 6th session FREE £250.
Available week days (not Thursdays) - 9am - 7.30pm
Location : I work in a quiet and private location in Spalford and only 15 minutes drive from Newark and similar time from Lincoln just off the A46.
