About me

I am an EMDR therapist, chartered psychologist and psychotherapist, with experience of helping adults who are feeling lost and anxious due to major transitions and crisis in their life.

I specialise in supporting adults who have experienced trauma, either as a series of events throughout their childhood/adulthood (complex PTSD) or as a single event (PTSD).  My treatment approach can enable individuals to process unresolved trauma and involves an integration of EMDR therapy and psychosynthesis psychotherapy.  I have published a book that provides an outline of how individuals can recover from trauma with psychosynthesis psychotherapy (see website for more details http://www.lindahoyle.co.uk).

My therapeutic approach is collaborative, client centred and relational. The outcome of my work with individuals is that they increase their sense of wellbeing, gain insight into difficulties, change ways of behaving and improve their ways of coping. My approach helps people balance their mind, body, feelings and spirit, which can help them to find more purpose & meaning in life and to realise their full potential.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a UKCP and BACP accredited psychotherapist.  I have a Diploma and MA in Psychotherapy from the Institute of Psychosynthesis and Middlesex University.  I am an EMDR Therapist, accredited with the EMDR UK Association.  I am a BPS accredited clinical supervisor with experience of working both with individuals and groups.

As a chartered psychologist, I am a member of the BPS Register of Applied Psychology Practice Supervisors and an Associate Fellow of the BPS (British Psychological Society). My PhD in psychology focused on understanding and overcoming resistance to change. I have 25 years experience as a leadership coach, group facilitator, personal development trainer and academic tutor. I am a Chartered Member of the BPS Special Group in Coaching Psychology.

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
