About me

Hi, I'm Linda McEnaney, a Clinical Hypnotherapist and psychotherapist.  The positive and future focused Solution focused hypnotherapy approach which I use enables long lasting change to be achieved within a relatively short period of time. I work with a wide range of clients both in person or online and love to see people overcoming whatever their challenges may be and for them being so amazed by what they can achieve with this approach!  

Solution focused hypnotherapy combines scientific and evidence based techniques of psychotherapy together with hypnosis. It is a forward looking and modern talking therapy where we work toward what you want your future to be and identify small yet achievable goals and actions to create that positive change. 

I love helping clients with whatever they want to change and improve in their life.  Whether it's help with reducing stress, anxiety, improving sleep, low mood, weight management, improving confidence, unwanted fears & phobias or habits & behaviours,  Solution Focused hypnotherapy can help with these and so many other issues too!.

I am fully insured to work with both adults and children and hold an enhanced DBS.  I am a member of the National Council of Hypnotherapy (NCH) and the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH) and registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC)

Sessions can be in person in a relaxing, dedicated therapy room in Helsby, Cheshire, easily accessible from Chester, Wirral, Runcorn, Northwich and Merseyside or also on-line from wherever you may be.

Professional membership/ Associations

-Member of the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH)

I have an enhanced DBS certificate for working with children and vulnerable adults.

I have a degree (BSc) in Biochemistry and worked in the pharmaceutical industry for more than 30 years in technical and senior roles in Quality.  I have always been fascinated by psychology and how the brain works, so qualifying as a clinical hypnotherapist and psychotherapist was a natural fit and I am so happy I made the change! My career background also gives me an insight into the corporate work environment and the importance of managing stress, the importance of sleep and maintaining a positive work life balance.

Further information

It's always great to hear from clients how hypnotherapy with myself has really helped. Below are several client testimonials -

Best decision I ever made.  Wish I did it earlier.  Linda is lovely and made me feel so comfortable.  It's tailored towards you, and is a very positive experience.  I've tried other therapies and been told I'm too far gone, but this has made such a positive impact.  I cannot recommend it enough.  It was a brilliant experience.

I came to Linda as I had been having trouble sleeping for several years and wanted a natural method rather than using medication.  She explained about how the workings of our brain affects our sleep and then put me into a very relaxed state listening to her voice and gave me access to a recording which I listen to before I go to sleep.  Since my sessions with Linda my quality of sleep has improved greatly and I have been having dreams for the first time in years which shows that I am experiencing deep restful sleep. I cannot recommend Linda's hypnotherapy enough as I feel so much more rested and have a much more positive mindset.

I can’t recommend Coda Hypnotherapy enough. I have had problems with my sleeping for some years and was at my wits end so one day whilst visiting family in Helsby I saw the advertising board for Coda outside the tea rooms so contacted Linda via email and my appointment was booked. Everything was explained what would happen during my appointment and I felt very relaxed and reassured. 6 sessions and I’m actually sleeping 100% better no getting up anymore at silly o’clock!!! Feel so much better in myself. Would definitely recommend 100% you won’t be disappointed. Thank you Coda Hypnotherapy you have helped me so much and can’t thank you enough.

First rate, I can highly recommend Linda at Coda Hypnotherapy.  Linda as a therapist is incredibly supportive, caring, understanding and very knowledgeable. My first initial consultation with Linda was where she explained how the process would work for my situation that I was facing and how our brain works in general.  Along with my weekly sessions that I had with Linda over a period of a couple of weeks I also listened to the audio recording of Linda when I needed that extra reassurance.  Having hypnotherapy and using the anchor technique that Linda taught me most definitely helped me overcome the situation that I was facing.  So a big THANK YOU Linda.  I would highly recommend Linda at Coda Hypnotherapy.

I have heard of Hypnotherapy but never really looked into it.  After people saying I should give it a go, I finally did.  It's an amazing thing and has most certainly helped me with my anxiety.  Linda is lovely and her work is fantastic.  I would recommend anyone to go and see her.  Brilliant!

Coda Hypnotherapy really helped my 12 year old son with his fear of blood and talking about anything organ & body related. He would have major panic attacks over going into lessons talking about the human body to the point of passing out and being physically sick.  Linda was brilliant with him and his anxiety towards this subject. After one of the sessions he was able to go to the dentist & have a number of teeth removed - awake and having many injections in his mouth.  Linda's calming voice in her recording helped him at night drift off to a peaceful sleep which was a great added bonus,  Highly recommend Coda Hypnotherapy

Linda is very warm and friendly and puts you at ease straight away.  I visited Linda for help with my anxiety.  I can definitely see the benefits from my sessions and would highly recommend Linda.

Best thing I did in 2022 was my sessions with Linda. It’s been absolutely life changing. I went to her with a spider phobia and didn’t have high hopes of it working because my fear was so severe. Well I was wrong, it definitely worked! Just a few sessions in and my phobia was gone. I hadn’t realised how much my phobia affected me on a daily basis. I can now open my windows without worrying, do gardening go into my shed and I’ve been in my loft for the first time ever! I am really grateful for your work, your calm manner, for creating a safe space and the clear explanations. My only regret is not doing it sooner.

I cannot thank Linda enough for the help she gave me when I suffered from acute anxiety, a condition I’d never had before. She guided me through the whole process with a calm caring professionalism. She helped me see this was something I had no control over feeling, and gave me the tools to deal with it at the time and going forward. I genuinely can not thank her enough. She helped me get ‘ME’ back.

I came to Linda with an open mind to try a new approach to my anxiety recovery journey after 6 years of trying different methods of counselling, medication and self- help techniques. I noticed almost immediately the benefits that Linda was able to provide and was able to use these new techniques throughout the day whenever I needed a ‘mental reset’. It was great to touch base every week in the sessions and also remind myself of the progress that I was making in my healing process. I can't thank Linda enough for the help she has given me and allowed me to move forward in a positive direction with my life.
