"Lynda made me feel safe to express myself and be honest and open. This has been one of the best experiences of my life and because of it ,I am not the same person. I am a more complete person!"

How I work with you and 'your' inside story

I have a very wide inventory of knowledge and skills, due to my holistic approach and 16 years of study. This enables me to understand your issues and find a match between your needs, issues and challenges and the most appropriate combination of therapeutic tools.

I ensure that you will always conclude your sessions with me in a positive, and life-enhancing frame of mind.

I achieve that by not working to the normal 50-minute appointment time, so you never worry about being rushed out the door before you are ready, and safely 'grounded'. This ensures that 'the process' we have been working on is completed, and you are not left 'high and dry' until your next session. This unfortunately sometimes happens with other therapists who are unable to work longer sessions. This can lead to a very stressful session experience.

A session with me will be between 60-120 minutes, my charge is £75 for this flexible amount of time, 

I will teach you effective techniques, to enable you to help yourself, thus maximising your abilities to sooth, rationalise and stabilise yourself when you are not with me.

You will embark upon a clearly defined 'journey' at a pace entirely governed by yourself.

I promise to provide guidance with integrity, understanding, and genuine empathy. 




  You start to benefit as a client of Your Inside Story when two things happen: 

Firstly you will ask for an initial appointment.......

  • An introduction from your Doctor. 
  • A referral by an existing personal client

    • Having seen an article in a publication or an advertisement.

    Secondly a meeting of about 60 to 90 minutes will be arranged. This is the 'Discovery session' designed so that:

    • You can describe your issues and history and the problem that you feel you need help with: It is these issues that will be the focus of the joint work between us.
    • We can reach an agreement on whether we want to work together towards the end of the 'Discovery Session'.
    •  If it's decided that I am not the best person to help or out of my field of expertise, I will recommend a therapist, who is more knowledgeable in that field.
    • I work 98% through recommendation, so it makes sense to only work with those people I am confident in being able to help achieve the best results.
    • Ethical and professional guidelines laid down by my governing body BACP will be discussed briefly.
    • Any questions you have will be answered.  


    The start of Your Journey.

    When you begin Your Therapy, you will be embarking upon a 'journey' at a pace entirely governed by yourself. I will  also teach you effective techniques to help you overcome your problems and be self-sufficient. 

    The first few sessions will include 'fact-finding' and assessments to enable me to understand exactly what your issues are, this is vital in order to design a treatment plan that is unique to you. The 'presenting' problems will be fully clarified and the continuing pattern of help and teaching will be decided upon between us.

    Transformational work/teaching
    The required transformational work and teaching will be conducted in these sessions. During each session, you can be assured of a complete confidentiality within a secure atmosphere where you are confident of discussing sensitive  problems and issues. 

    Progress monitoring
    At each session, it will be clear to you what progress is being made. Also between sessions, you can contact me for further support if needed. This is a part of my caring service.

    Length of programme
    There is no time limit on the duration of your programme or the length of an appointment, since, by definition, every client is different. Programmes may vary between 2 and 15 sessions, subject to need.

    Usual length of an appointment is between 1- 2 hours
