Over many years and without any sustained success I had tried to lose weight.
I can be fat and fit can't I? Low cholesterol, good BP, no sign of diabetes. That was how I justified not keeping up with any programme.

Returning from holiday where I needed a seatbelt extender on the plane and had photos that were too awful to look at I set about some DIY. The realisation that I was fat and UNFIT hit me as I was climbing a ladder to do some painting.

A friend at work gave me Linda's number after her brother had success with her and I thought 'what have I got to lose'.

Plucking up the courage to make that first call was the best decision I have made in a long time. From that first call Linda made me feel like there was something I could do about shifting all my excess weight and a few weeks later I was in my car and off for my first session.

That short journey in the car turned in to the ongoing journey of my life. It feels like it has been an easy transformation from 'old me' to 'new me' but I put that down to the ability Linda has to make me believe I can do this and keep it up. Through hypnosis I have been able to quell that little voice that has said 'go on, one more won't hurt you' (it has and it will). Now there is a new stronger voice encouraging me to stick to the pathway that I want to stay on. I am doing this with Linda's help, she is not doing it for me. She has given me the right tools to get the job done, bringing us back in the circle to DIY - you can only get the job done by using the right tools.

I am not on a diet, it is much more than that. I have changed my life. Yes I still enjoy my favourite foods, I just don't eat them as often or in such large quantities (who knew you could do that!!)

Linda is professional, non-judgemental, supportive and down to earth. And we have a great laugh sometimes when she calls me out for making excuses about why I have strayed from my new life ( and I do, no one is perfect) I have not hesitated in recommending Linda to my friends and seen them start on their journey to a new life.

Hi Linda

Just wanted to say a big, big thank you to you. I came to see you on two separate occasions in July as I had booked for a holiday and family wedding in Bali and being a chronic claustrophobic since the age of 15 was really unsure as to whether I would be able to go.

Thanks to you and your hypnosis and positive thoughts I made the long journey there and back without a care in the world. You have changed my life and I can now manage my claustrophobia and fear of flying and lifts without any sort of concern.

I will be recommending you to all, thank you.

Linda has helped my daughter cope with two key phases in her life - GCSEs and her driving test. In both cases my daughter was very capable and competent but just lacked that self belief. Linda's warm, humorous approach helped Hollie get things into perspective, challenged her self doubt and subtly turned all the negatives into positives.

Hollie was calm and confident going into her driving test - using the 3C's that Linda taught her and she was rewarded with a good pass. The confidence that passing her test has given her had already resulted in a change in general outlook that I am sure will be far reaching. She now sees Linda as a valuable tool in her armoury and is ready to tackle the world. I would thoroughly recommend Linda - she's a star!


Hey Linda,

I had a lovely realisation the other day while walking my dog over the fields near my house in XXX that I am the happiest I have ever been. I'm very content with just being me, I'm not lonely and happy being single, I'm happy being a size 12 and don't feel the need to beat my self up over a pizza I ate! I'm really happy with how I've developed with my life, work, rest and play.

All of those things together make me smile inside and that's showing on the outside!

I thought you'd like to know that you have hugely helped me develop the way I live my life and it seems like I continue to get happier and happier, with less and less low points, so thank you again!

All my love,

A aged ??

My experience of visiting Linda at hypnosis for health and counselling

What can I say? One phone call to Linda changed my life!
When I arrived for my first appointment it was a last ditch attempt to do something about my ever increasing weight and appetite. I held out little hope, to be frank. But I decided the only chance for me was to bundle up all my lack of hope and negativity into a parcel and deposit it neatly at someone else's feet and see what they made of it. There was nothing more personally I could do, so I thought, well not for longer than a few days at a time, tops, to lose weight. And I was was sick of fighting a lifelong losing battle.

A few pounds off, a few more on and a constant nagging in my head that I was doomed to fail before I achieved anything near making a difference. Which was always proved right.

I reasoned with myself that I wanted to be in good health to be around for as long as possible for my family. I said I would never allow myself to attend events and gatherings feeling as awful about myself as the last time. Reasoning didn't work and I was always disgusted with myself for caving in to cravings so easily. I felt a failure and pathetic for not being able to manage something as basic as eating to live not living to eat.

I had success from various program's over the years but never long term and as time went on my ability to apply myself to dieting became less and less.

I felt I was always hungry and never, ever felt full. I could eat twice as much as my other half and still the rest of everyone else's leftovers. To say I was out of control is putting it mildly. And over the years I'd learned a lesson. Try and you won't succeed. Try and it will end up the same as every other attempt to lose weight. Try again and be an idiot. Only an idiot keeps on repeating the same behaviour and expecting a different outcome.

So there I was... giving myself up the the experience of hypnosis, not expecting much, not hopeful.

It didn't matter though. Linda got on and did her thing and well... Now I have hope. And more than that I can do this and will do this. It's as simple as that. I walked away the first day and felt like a switch had been flicked. That's not to say its a passive experience, I'm working at it too, you must listen to you cd, you must be actively involved. But she has altered how I think, my behaviour. Some days are trickier than others, now I can just take a moment to see where I'm going wrong. I can deal with tricky. Whatever she has done its given me a sense of pride and confidence I've not felt for a while. A new zest for enjoying all life has to offer.

From the first session a new journey began for me and although I've tried to here, I really cannot put into words how great it feels having had this life changing experience. If I was being corny though, I'd use Linda's favourite word. FAB!

Life-saving! Life-changing!

The sessions with Linda have given me the ammunition I need to fire at my demons, the drive to exercise and the strength to continue fighting.

I have lost 5st (no saggy bits!!!) from mid-March to mid-Oct 13, with a combination of sessions with Linda, Pilates, Yoga and a huge amount of daily walking. Without Linda, I would probably have been on the way to becoming super-super-size and appearing on one of those TV programmes we all so cringe at but can't stop watching. Now... I have turned my life around and am doing things I have never considered before. As a direct result of Linda's help and my exercise regime, I now able to do so much more. To top it all off, I am climbing Mount Kilimanjaro this coming February to celebrate!"

Thank you,


Hi Linda,

Just a quick email to say thank you very much for your help. I talked things through with my daughter and have been down numerous times since, used the technique and now no problems whatsoever - I walk out with a smile on my face. As you mentioned, it may get to the stage where it is difficult to rate it highly before I start and this has certainly happened now. Amazing!

Thanks for everything.

Clare Walters.

I came to you with my fear which is driving as a passenger - after a few sessions, I do not have that fear.

I was haunted by memories and images that just wouldn't go away. I was very sceptical about hypnotherapy (but) after just one session, you have changed my life.

Before I met you I was a smoker for 27 years - What really impressed is that you made giving up smoking easy for me. I have not smoked since that day and have no intention of smoking again.

I contacted Linda for hypnotherapy as I was struggling to stay focused on certain areas in my life. I had a very relaxing session and left feeling more positive and back in control of my life.

Thank you. K. L. Barnet

Dear Linda

I thought I would drop you a line to tell you about my progress thus far.

I am glad to say that I have now lost just over 2 stones, my original target, and now set a further benchmark to reach. I would like to say thank you for your input, as this is the first time in years that I have lost weight and then continued to drop further. Normally I put it back on with a vengeance, but not now.

I must admit I was sceptical about being hypnotised but found the experience comfortable and very relaxing. The best part of it is, as I keep telling people who keep pointing out “you're getting thinner”; which is a great confidence boost, ‘I‘m not on a diet! I just don’t eat the rubbish I used to and have cut down the drinking to moderate levels’.

Having tried the Atkins, the cabbage soup, points, etc diets. They all worked for a short while and then I piled the weight back on. I now have a different outlook to the foods I eat and if I want to eat some crisps I do. Albeit 1 bag occasionally not 4 on the spin, although I rarely go near them now.

Thank you for help. I hope your future clients benefit from your consultations as well as I have. I look forward to reporting on my next target reached!!

Yours gratefully
