11 Marske Lane
My name is Linsey Cooke and I live in Stockton-on-Tees with my seven-year-old son.
I spent a number of years working my way up in the NHS administrative field where I became a general practice manager in the specialist field of addiction. During this time, I gained a Business Management Degree from the University of Teesside.
Having made the decision to leave the NHS 4 years ago to focus on my son, I have continued to hold administrative roles and enjoy the daily interactions with many different individuals. I have recently re-joined the NHS as an office manager in a GP practice.
I had been intrigued about hypnotherapy for a number of years but never taking the plunge to seek any for myself, I happened upon a course being delivered in Middlesbrough and I can honestly say I have never looked back. It has changed my outlook on life and how I deal with it. I am so passionate about the benefits that hypnotherapy offers that I would like to share it with others. I only wish I had discovered it fifteen years ago.
How Hypnotherapy can help.
Hypnotherapy is about empowering each individual to unlock the information held in their subconscious mind to overcome their issues or unwanted habits or behaviours. Helping the person to change and lead a stress free, fulfilled life reducing the impact the unwanted behaviour is having on their everyday life.
Sessions are offered in a friendly environment, where you can feel completely relaxed and at ease with confidence that you will be treated as an individual using a treatment plan designed especially for you, secure in the knowledge that everything will be dealt with confidentially. I am registered with the Information Commissioner's Office - registration code ZA234325
What to expect from your first session.
At your initial consultation you will, be welcomed into my comfortable treatment room and I will give you all the information you require on Hypnotherapy and how it works.
You will be given the opportunity to ask any questions that you may have.
I will ask a series of questions regarding the issue that you are seeing help for. This gives me the insight I need to plan your treatment.
Once the session is over, I will suggest that you take some time to think if this is the right course of action for you, there will be no hard sell and no obligation to proceed.
On street parking is available and close to bus stops servicing Stockton-On-Tees town centre.
Treatment room is up a flight of stairs but you can be seen on the ground floor with prior arrangement.

I have recently undertaken the HypnoSlimmer with gastric band package myself for weight loss. This has given me an insight into how it feels to receive treatment. This resulted in a total reduction of 39.5cm over a 5 week period and also enabled me to beat my chocolate cravings.
Stop Smoking - "I went to see Linsey on 4/12/16 for help to stop smoking after smoking for 28 years. I am more than happy to say that I am still not smoking and have no intention of doing so again. Definitely would recommend."
Weight Loss - "Second week of this fabulous programme lost 15cms this week that's 26cms already. Onward and upwards. Thanks Linsey"
Anxiety - "Linsey is such a kind, caring woman who puts so much effort into individual treatments to suit each client. She has helped me with confidence building and managing my anxiety and after only 2 sessions I have seen a difference. Can't thank her enough!"
IVF - "I have received hypnotherapy from Linsey for IVF treatment. I have to say this has completely supported me to overcome my anxiety over the treatment. I have completed a few sessions and also some home hypnotherapy techniques that Linsey showed me. Before I started my therapy, I was very anxious about the treatment as I had tried things before to get pregnant and they have not worked for one reason or another. The therapy helped me to visualise what I want for example a healthy pregnancy and also helped me to stay calm and relax.
We completed sessions that focused on anxiety and also on the injections as this was something I felt really uncomfortable with. The sessions were timed well and Linsey was very flexible with me. Linsey worked with me to find out what I needed and wanted from each session and tailor made each hypnotherapy session to meet my needs and support where I was during the IVF cycle. Linsey also helped me further by creating a tailor made hypnotherapy recording that she emailed and I kept on my phone to listen to when I felt I needed a boost or to calm the mind before egg removal. With Linsey also having gone through IVF herself, she was very aware of what I was going through and feeling at each stage and shared some good advice along side the hypnotherapy sessions. I am extremely grateful to Linsey for the help and support she has given me for IVF. I do believe the sessions have helped me a great deal, thank you Linsey!"
Anxiety/Public Speaking - "I did it! Thank you so much for your help. I never thought I'd be able to do a presentation so I can't tell you how much I appreciate it!"
Weight Loss - " I’ve been good since last seeing you and have been losing weight every week! Just wanted to say thank you for giving me the kick start I needed"
Fear/Phobia of Spiders and other Insects - 2 sessions to help my phobia of all insects! Also learned to relax and chill. She is amazing!
