Lyanne Pudney Dip.Integrative Couns. Adv. Dip. Hyp/Psych. MBACP.
Hello, I'm Lyanne.
If you are anxious, stressed or worried about something, deciding to seek help is a great step towards feeling better & moving forwards.
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.
It's important that you find the right person to talk to, so if you'd like a confidential chat by phone before you commit to therapy I'd be happy to hear from 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 believe that a good therapeutic relationship means that we work alongside one another - I will guide you of course and together we'll find the best way to help you.
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.

"Absolutely liberating! This course has changed me for the better in so many ways." Anonymous member, Weight Management Group, Colchester.

My fees are the same regardless of the methods we use. Whether you simply need to talk things through & be heard, or we include specific techniques to actively resolve issues for you. I am qualified in many areas and this enables me to tailor your sessions for the best outcome.
We may for example use CBT, NLP, Psychotherapy or Hypnosis techniques as appropriate. You can find more information on the types of therapy I offer on my website if you like to understand detail - otherwise you can trust me to work in a way that is comfortable for you and suits your personality.
