Perhaps the first thing to say is that, unlike pressure, stress is never good for you and never a positive thing. Stress creates unhealthy biological reactions, and prolonged stress can lead to both physical and mental health breakdowns. Whether you currently believe that you work well under stress or are already uncomfortable with the level of stress you are currently under, it is essential that you do something about it.

- Heightened sensitivity to criticism
- Signs of tension i.e. nail biting

The most important thing to know is that all these symptoms can all be overcome, no matter what you are dealing with in life. What will your life be like when you become YOU again?
As a Stress Management Consultant I can help you identify the causes of your stress, understand how you are creating the physical effects of stress in your body, help you learn coping skills to reduce your symptoms. We can work together to create a realistic stress management programme to help you cope with stress in the future.
Stressful events are a fact of life. And you may not be able to change your current situation, however you can take steps to manage the impact these events have on you.
The techniques used will vary as the programme is unique to you, these tools include coaching, NLP(Neuro-Linguistic Programming), visualisation, changing your relationship with stress for life. Some of these work very quickly.
As each programme is individual to your needs its hard to say how many sessions you may need, the average is around four to six.
Some of the symptoms of stress mentioned above can also be caused by other conditions that need to be checked out by your GP.
I had received hypnotherapy a number of years previously for treating agoraphobia and I found it very effective and changed my life. The problem of anxiety arose after my mum and dad passed away 3 years ago, and I felt sure it would help me again.Linda
I was right. In contacting Lynne I found it really helpful. I felt more confident and less worried about the future. I found Lynne to be very professional but friendly and very approachable which I personally feel is why my treatment was successful.
It wasn’t just the hypnotherapy, it was working together with Lynne and putting things in place that I could use at home if I suffered a “blip”.
I would recommend anyone to be treated with hypnotherapy in this way as it is very successful, and has worked for me.
I sought the help of Lynne because I was struggling with alcohol. I am not addicted to alcohol but when I had to socialise I drank excessively to give me confidence. It did not matter if I knew them well or not at all. I would always drink before I went out would get really drunk become argumentative say and do things I would never do sober or a little tipsy. Lynn helped me through hypnosis what in my past could be one of the reasons I do this and gave me coping techniques. It has been approx. 10 months since I last had hypnotherapy and with the exception of a couple of lapses I have really controlled my alcohol intake at social events and people have commented I have done well and they are proud of me.Julie
The results were almost instant, as you put my life in perspective. I could see things for what they were and the self-help i.e. breathing and techniques really worked for me.Nicola
I’ve not looked back.
I’ve not had an episode at all, I’ve cut down on my drinking. Losing weight slowly and feel generally more motivated. I’ve started to wean myself off the panic attack meds under guidance from docs, and I’m doing great.
I wouldn't think twice about returning to see you if I felt I needed it as you were very easy to talk to and put me at ease straight away. My life at the moment is great, and this is all because you taught me about my life and put it in order.
Can’t thank you enough
