I was pushed into CBT by my family. I never really believed it would help. But it was the best thing I ever did. Lynn was so wonderful and kind. She helped me to work through everything and to discover myself; she never made me feel ashamed. Her understanding of why I had done things and behaved in a way, helped me to accept what was wrong and help me to discover how I could move forward by myself, stronger and happier than I had ever been before.

Going for CBT was the best thing I could have done – thank you it means so much that I really felt you understood my problems.

I went to see Lynn because I was having panic attacks at work. Every time I had to stand up to say something in a meeting, I could feel myself go red, and my throat would go dry and my hands start to tremble. Sometimes my heart beat so fast I thought I would pass out. It was awful and I was cross with myself because I felt like it was holding me back in my job. Lynn worked with me to help me see things differently. I didn’t believe that I could overcome this, but I am so grateful for her kind understanding and support – thank you.
Lynn was the first professional with whom I have comfortable to just “be myself”. She provided a safe, non-judgmental place for me to explore my ongoing feelings, thoughts and behaviours. I really appreciate the time and patience she has showed me – thank you.

After my first session with Lynn I was very happy that I chose her. She was very easy to talk to and made me feel comfortable. I trusted her with everything I said and never felt pressured or hurried. She taught me the most valuable piece of information – that I am in control of my life; everything is my decision and my choice.

CBT has improved my self-awareness to a level that I didn't know I could reach. It has given me more of an understanding of my life, life in general and how I relate to those around me.

I was at a very difficult and scary place but you helped me more than I could have imagined.

Just a note to say how grateful I am for your help and advice. I was so muddled and confused before I had my sessions with you. I can see things more clearly now and have much more confidence after your help and advice. I know I have a bit further to go but with you support I am quite sure I will get there.

A friend advised me to come and see you about my anxiety attacks. I must admit to being a little sceptical at first, but you were so patient Sian and you seemed to have a knack in making me see my strengths. I cannot tell you how much it has helped me in my work and social life. I no longer want to hide away when there is an important social event. I can at last look forward to things instead of dreading meeting new people. Thanks you from the bottom of my heart.
As a man in his sixties and having seen various counsellors in the past I didn’t think anyone could help me. As you know I had suffered various bouts of depression throughout the years and had begun to think the problems were ‘built in’ and such a part of me there was no escape. It has been quite a journey but I wanted to thank you for your continuing support , help and advice. At last I can feel more positive and I am in a much happier place – thank you Sian
Thank you so much for all your help and support I feel better than I have for years!
