Hi, I’m Linda,

I know that it’s difficult to make stress, anxiety and worry go away on its own. I’ve experienced it and so many of my clients confirm this. Life is so busy and demanding. I really get it.

You want to improve yourself but its hard as you struggle to find a way to feel better.  But research and evidence shows that the way you deal with difficult times can make a big difference to your future health and happiness. Contact me.

I’m a specialist in helping people with anxiety who want to change.

I can support you by providing hypnotherapy and counselling. I’m a highly qualified and experienced clinical hypnotherapy practitioner and counsellor, you can read more about me and my many qualifications here. I also have a blog, if you would like to get to know me better.

My hypnotherapy sessions are developed around bespoke programmes, so you get so much more than hypnotherapy or counselling alone. You get quality sessions that are built on research and evidence. I specialise in helping people to relieve stress and anxiety or to cope after a loss, so you know that you are getting an expert in the field.


My programmes are designed especially for you and your situation. Often, I use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) with hypnosis as it’s been proven to give better results for some people. I know that your problem is important, so I really listen to you and help you find the solution.

In addition, I provide you with information and I offer you a relaxation audio recording (MP3) to listen to at home. Finally, when you choose my service you will soon discover that as a retired nurse with over 30 years working in helping professions, I am passionate about what I do because I want you to feel better.

Fill out a form and I’ll be in touch to organise your first free consultation.
