About me

Hello, I'm Lyanne.

I specialise in helping clients with Anxiety based issues including: PTSD/Trauma/Panic Attacks/Phobias/OCD.

Choosing a Counsellor can be daunting, so take your time & talk to a few of us to see who you are drawn to. Some of us offer a free consultation so you can check out how it all works & see if you are comfortable. 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 forwards.

For those who know a bit about therapy already: I am Integratively trained with a Humanistic view. I often use psychodynamic approaches (exploratory not analytical) and draw from many psychotherapy techniques as appropriate.

In plain English this means I believe that people are capable of figuring out what is troubling them but need support when they get stuck or become overwhelmed (and so seek therapy). I don't give advice but once we've explored the root of the problem I might use or teach you some techniques or work in a way to help you deal with and move past something that is causing you pain.

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.


"Lyanne helped me overcome my anxiety and challenge my fears with great techniques and advice. Amazing and attentive therapist."

"Just thought I'd let you know that, thanks to you and the book, my relationship is going from strength to strength. Of course, it isn’t perfect and it’s a work in progress but things are looking good. So thank you so much." "I can't believe I actually slept on the plane - without ANY medication, thank you very much, I can finally look forward to holidays without dreading the flights!" A.D. Colchester

"The insights I've gained are so valuable to me. I will treasure the lightbulb moments we had! Thank you for your support"

"Finally understanding the cause of my anxiety helped me immensely. I am still using the methods you taught me 2 months later and I feel like a weight has been lifted, thank you." J.O. Colchester
