Linda Hilditch - BSc (Hons) - MNCS- Accredited Psychotherapist
I have always had a personal interest in self help and assisted therapy and began training in NLP (Neuro Linguistic programming) over 20 years ago, I have trained with both Richard Bandler and Paul McKenna who are both recognised leaders in this field and I am a licensed neuro-linguistic programmer. After Gaining qualifications in both hypnotherapy and psychotherapy I am a member of the National Counselling Society and the National Hypnotherapy Society and my training reflects the standards and ongoing training required by active members.
I have ensured that my training provides the most recognised and up to date therapeutic interventions which I believe enhances my natural ability to understand and offer help to those who feel that therapy will empower and enable them to live the life they choose.
Using an eclectic approach I am able to tailor bespoke treatment plans using the strengths of the client to gain understanding and achieve the best possible results. I am trained in the use of CBT (cognitive behaviour therapy), PCT (person centred therapy) and psychodynamic therapy.
I understand the life journey that brings a client to therapy is unique and on that basis I offer bespoke therapeutic solutions.
By running my practise from home I can offer a safe and comfortable environment without losing any of the professional standards you would expect. Confidentiality is foremost in my work and I work with the code of ethics that is required as an accredited member of the National Counselling Society, and The National Hypnotherapy Society.
Linda Hilditch therapies offers bespoke therapeutic solutions to help you understand your behaviours and adapt your strengths in a way that works for you. I believe happiness and change starts from the inside. Hypnotherapy or psychotherapy could offer you the solutions you are looking for. I believe everyone is exceptional and can offer my clients an opportunity to explore the life path which they choose to travel using their own inner qualities and unique personalities.
