Linda Mortimer BSc (Hons) MSc, D.Hyp, MNCH (Acc)
I use an integrated approach to hypnotherapy to help you to make positive change in your life. This is a two-way process, where you are very much in control, and together we can help you shed negative behaviours and find a more positive path. We all have the ability and right to be happy and fulfilled. I can help you achieve these goals.
I draw on both your intellectual and emotional experiences, but I focus on the solution and not the problems. Rather than dwelling on the past, I use the potential of positive change to help you move on from whatever issues you may be facing. I adapt each session according to your specific needs.
Anxiety and stress, phobias, depression, confidence, irritable bowel syndrome, test/exam anxiety and social anxiety are just some of the problems that I deal with. I can help you stop smoking or find a way to lose weight healthily and happily.
My aim is to produce long-term change, helping you to think and react differently to issues you face. I work with adults, and teenagers (from the age of about sixteen).
I am here to help you turn your life around.
Experience a calm & positive birth
Hypnobirthing is a complete antenatal course that is logical, effective and simple, with the aim of letting go of your fears so you can look forward to the birth of your baby. This 12 hour antenatal and self-hypnosis course, spread over 4 sessions, will prepare you for a calm and confident birth.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained with the London Hypnotherapy Academy. I am a member of the the National Council of Hypnotherapists (NCH).
Prior to training in hypnotherapy I studied and worked in Psychology. I hold a Honours degree and a Masters in Psychology, as well as qualified teacher status. I have spent much of my career working in, and teaching Psychology. I will shortly begin a PhD in Psychology at Goldsmiths University, focusing on anxiety and pregnancy.
I regularly update my skills, including those related to therapy and counselling.
