Lyanne Pudney Dip.Integrative Couns. Adv. Dip. Hyp/Psych. MBACP.
Hello, I'm Lyanne.
You are welcome to have a 30 minute free consultation with me to decide if I'm the right therapist for you, because finding the right person is important.
I specialise in helping clients with Anxiety/Depression & Relationship based issues including: PTSD/Trauma/Panic Attacks/Phobias & Communication in Relationships
I am a friendly, down to earth Integrative Counsellor. This means that I am qualified in more than one approach to Counselling/Psychotherapy and can draw on the most appropriate and effective ways to help you.
Choosing a Counsellor can be daunting, so take your time & if you can, talk to a few of us to see who you are drawn to and don't be afraid to have a consultation. It's normal to feel nervous, but you should find yourself at ease very quickly once you start.
I work with empathy, care and a positive approach to help you make the changes you want - whatever your circumstances. Talking things through can help lift the weight a little and then together, we'll decide on the best way to move forward.
I'm also a qualified Hypnotherapist so am happy to add this into your sessions to help you relax or explore issues at a deep level. Please ask me about this if it's something you're interested in.
