"Believe in Yourself"
The potential healing power of the human mind cannot be underestimated. Many people carry around unresolved issues which can have an adverse effect on their lives. A course of counselling may well turn out to be the best investment you have ever made and enable you to move on and get the most out of your life.
Hypnosis works by the therapist gaining access to your subconscious mind. By using this technique, many physical and psychological conditions can be much improved.
Linda moved to the Isle of Wight from London in 1996. She trained with the Bayly School of Reflexology in London and qualified as a reflexologist in 1996. Linda is an experienced mental health practitioner and has worked for the Community Mental Health Service on the Island since 2004. Linda enjoys working in a “helping” role and is described by her friends and colleagues as a “people person”. Having experienced first-hand the healing power of hypnosis, Linda decided to train in this discipline and qualified with a professional Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Counselling Skills in 2012. Linda qualified as an EFT and Matrix Reimprinting practioner in January 2013, and in October 2013 went on to obtain a Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling, passing with a distinction. In December 2014 she progressed further still and gained an Advanced Professional Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling. This has enabled her to bring all her skills together and her aim is to use these skills to treat each patient as a unique individual, and to tailor her approach to therapy accordingly.
What can I expect during a counselling session?
Linda will discuss your goals for therapy in order that your treatment can be tailored to your needs. A contract will be agreed which will include the expected number of sessions that may be needed. Each session will last for one hour.
What can I expect during a hypnotherapy session?
During your initial consultation a brief history will be taken and your reasons and goals for therapy will be discussed. A plan will then be agreed regarding the approach to therapy and the expected number of sessions that will be required. In subsequent sessions the first half of the session will be spent discussing your current issues. You will then be asked to make yourself comfortable whilst you are assisted to relax and prepare yourself for the hypnotherapy treatment. During the treatment you will be helped to relax your mind and body in order that you get the most out of your session. Linda works by providing a “personalised” hypnotherapy script for each client and offers personalised recordings to aid relaxation and sleep.
