NEWSFLASH! I am now holding consultations in the City of London all day on Thursdays.
Please contact me for further details, either to book a consultation or make an appointment!

Thank you for visiting my site today. Please take some time to look around.

It provides information that may help you make an informed decision on what sort of therapy might be the right one for you. My aim is to provide a first-class service in the City, Cheshunt/Hertfordshire and North London area.

At Hypnosis for Health and Counselling, I work in the way that suits a client to get the best results. My work is known as a solution-based therapy, or in therapy-speak, a person-centred integrative therapist.

All clients are individuals and the issues they face are very real and unique to them.

Perhaps you're living with ongoing panic attacks, I work with many what is now being known by the NHS as GAD's, (General Anxiety Disorders) you may want to lose weight, stop smoking or deal with that long-term phobia that you have put off dealing with. You may have put up with low self-esteem or lack of confidence or indeed anything else that may have impacted on you which has stopped you from enjoying life.

The strengths of my practice come from caring, kindness and empathy, with a large dose of straight-talking and practical guidance thrown in.

This means using a wide variety of methods, which may include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) or just plain counselling - 'Talking Therapy' as the NHS call it.

It's all about you as the client and how you can get to where you want to get in your own life.

So, now you've taken that first step towards your goals why not take action and make contact today?

About Linda
When qualifying, I could have taken the option of working in a big practice or clinic, but that wouldn't have been for me. I had made the change from being part of the corporate world and believed that if I was going to be committed to make changes and help others, then those changes had to start with me.

I work mainly from my home practice, which is comfortable, private and creates a safe environment for my clients to get results.

I qualified with the International Hypnotherapist Association (IHA) which is one of the largest bodies of recognised Hypnotherapists, as well as being a fully qualified NLP practitioner. The IHA aims to promote the highest levels of professionalism within the industry. I am also a member of a number of professional bodies including the CNHC which is the UK's largest complementary health body, fighting the fight for NHS recognition.

Completely confidential 20 minute consultations, either by phone, or in person, are provided free before you book your initial session. After consultation, home visits may be provided, as anxieties, panic attacks or phobias are best dealt with where the individual feels safe and comfortable.

What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a normal part of our everyday life.

When I say that, people don't often believe me but when I explain that you may have experienced driving to somewhere you go regularly, like work, and suddenly realising that you have arrived, or watching a television programme and day dreaming through it, these are both examples of being in a trance state. I utilise the trance state to access your unconscious mind and to help you change your unwanted behaviours and habits.

Being hypnotized - is not about losing control.

Being hypnotized - is about learning how to TAKE control.

What Happens?
There is no such thing as a typical hypnotherapy session, as each treatment is tailored to the requirements of each client but I see the majority of clients for 4 to 8 sessions.

The first session lasts about one and a half hours and is mainly given to taking a case history, and assess your needs and goals. It is also used to allay any fears you may have and answer any questions.

You will not always be hypnotised during the first session as I really want to try and understand the best way to approach your issue and see the world through your eyes; all therapy is a very personal experience.

A treatment schedule is designed based on the information gathered in this first session, and further sessions last for around an hour.

Who is it for? Anyone that wants to make positive changes in their life.
