Feelings of stress, feeling sad, depressed, feelings of anxiety, generalised anxiety, health anxiety, social anxiety, are debilitating, working with a counsellor can help you to feel better and manage your mental health more effectively.
I am an experienced counsellor & psychotherapist, having worked with anxiety,depression, low self esteem, grief or loss, family related problems, work, abuse, bullying, PTSD.
I work with an integrative approach based on your needs. I offer a neutral and supported space were you are free to explore problems, this offers opportunities to feel differently, make necessary changes or life choices. Reducing stress and learning coping skills to increase resilience, which is good for your mind and body. I use standard vocational assessment tools, these show my clients gain marked improvement within 6 weeks of commencement of therapy.
I also off EMDR Therapy, an evidence based therapy where research conducted demonstrates its benefits in treating psychological trauma, abuse, neglect, accidents, assault, & PTSD. EMDR is also increasingly used to help with issues of performance, anxiety or depression. I work with clients both long and short term according to the clients needs with ongoing mutual assessment.
What my clients say - "Lynda is such a warm person and helped me through a really tough time in my life with the EMDR technique. As a person who struggled with extreme anxiety Lynda was able to work through it with me and I am now living a comfortable and almost anxiety free life. I would highly recommend EMDR."
"Lynda creates a welcoming environment, free of judgement and conducive to positive conversations."
"From the moment I met Lynda I felt comfortable being open with her, she provides a safe and non judgemental environment. Lynda has a caring nature and it really shows in the service she provides. I would definitely recommend."
