About me

Welcome to Hypnotherapy Southeast.  My name is Lynda Roberts, and I run an established Hypnotherapy practice based in Ramsey, Essex, within easy reach of Colchester, Manningtree, Ipswich, Harwich and Clacton. I am an advanced hypnotherapy practitioner and published author, specialising in motivational weight loss, anxiety disorders and phobia release.


If you are experiencing anxiety , panic attacks and/or stress, hypnosis can help you to  overcome those feelings, and find inner peace as your confidence grows.  I will teach you powerful self-hypnosis techniques to use in between sessions, so that your feelings of anxiety soon become a thing of the past.  Think of anxiety and panic as a faulty car alarm going off when there's no reason - reset it and it stops!

PHOBIAS may be dissolved in as little as one session!

FEARS such as flying, dentist, driving, job interviews, speeches and more can be released in one session.

Exclusive 6 week motivational weight loss and confidence building programme is available to you if you are someone who has had enough of dieting, or who eats for emotional reasons. 

Another very useful resource to help you move away from eating for comfort when you're anxious is my book WEIGHT OFF YOUR PLATE, available from Amazon. This book will give you a clear understanding of how your mind tricks you into reaching for unhealthy foods when you're feeling stressed, and how you can reverse that trick while dissolving anxiety. Discover new ways of dealing with those familiar triggers that send you to the fridge, and find a new confidence as your shape and weight changes to what you want it to be.  Self-hypnosis, examples of tasty, healthy recipes and much, much more!

At Hypnotherapy Southeast you will always be offered fast, effective help in a very supportive, confidential  environment.   Online sessions are also 

Helping you become free of whatever has been holding you back is my top priority, so please feel free to contact me by e mail or 'phone with no obligation.  

Sessions are approximately an hour long.   My aim is to help you to feel better about yourself and live the life you want to live ....I work with what you give me in session, so the therapy is not's both of us working together as a team to free your mind from whatever has been holding you back.  Hypnotherapy is not a magic wand, but great results can be achieved when you really want to change more than anything else.  It goes without saying that absolutely confidentiality is guaranteed, so you can relax in the knowledge that your privacy is paramount.

You will have support and guidance on every step of your journey towards a better future, and I am happy to take an SOS call or text between sessions if you need reassurance.

My experience enables me to offer you help whatever your problem.  Often a combination of techniques can produce amazing positive changes in as little as one or two sessions.  Some of the techniques used are  content free, which means you do not have to tell me anything if you would rather not - the work is done in your own mind.  In any event, your privacy is always respected.

Whatever changes you want to make, together we can find a solution

If you feel that now is the time for someone to listen to you, the first step is to contact me for an informal chat about what it is you want to change.   Just doing that will feel empowering, I promise.  I understand it can be a little bit nerve wracking making that first contact to seek help, but you will be glad you did! Don't forget, if you live some distance away from my practice, on line sessions are available.
