I can highly recommend coaching sessions with Lynne. I approached Lynne for help in changing career but also hoped she could help me with the constant anxiety I had lived with since my youngest child was born 12 years ago. I had been doing the same job for 20 years that I didn't enjoy, I felt stuck, low in confidence and didn't know what else to do.
Initially I was unsure how zoom would work and was apprehensive about not meeting face to face. However from the very first call, it was so easy. Lynne has this wonderful way about her, I'm not sure I can explain it! But she made me feel at ease immediately and I felt that someone finally "got" how I was feeling. I felt at last I could be completely open about how I felt. I no longer felt ashamed of anxiety.
Lynne helped me to see the world in a different way and I've found a sort of inner calm or confidence. I'm not saying I don't worry about things anymore because I do. But the difference is that the worries don't seem to matter so much anymore. They come and go and I don't dwell on them. I overthink much much less about everything and it feels great! Even quite challenging situations I feel more able to get on with. I live much more in the moment and don't think too far ahead in a fictional future.
Six months on from where I started and I have already moved to a different job within the same organisation (something I had wanted to do for years) and am making slow but steady steps in pursuing a completely different career. I now feel excited for the future. LC
In recent months, I'd found myself struggling to come to terms with how hard it has been to recover from fairly major surgery.
I’d retreated from colleagues, friends and family, I was having so many negative thoughts and wasn’t enjoying doing the things that normally made me happy. Having always been a fit, active and happy person, this was all such a shock.
A friend, who had previously had some coaching sessions with Lynne, recommended I see her.
I found Lynne so easy to talk to, I was finally speaking to someone about how I really felt and what my fears were. Lynne encouraged me to stop setting goals and just find something each day that made me happy. We talked about living in the present moment, which I thought I was, but now realise my head was always racing ahead. She helped me understand that I can change the dynamics of relationships by thinking about things differently, choosing not to let things upset me that might have previously. I can live in fear of something or I can choose a different outcome.
With each session I’ve taken away something slightly different and have felt a massive shift, which is hard to describe but is noticeable to those closest to me, but most importantly, to me.
I’ve found the joy in life again, loving seeing my friends and family more than ever.
I’ve learned to accept where I am physically and that it’s a period of time which will pass.
I’ve taken control of my feelings around certain relationships and they’ve improved substantially.
I can also feel the positivity passing on to others as I interact with them.
If you feel anxious, stressed, down, lost or are struggling at all, some time with Lynne will undoubtedly help. Thanks so much for everything Lynne! AS
"Professional Warm Kind Understanding Non-judgemental Friendly Caring Relaxing These are a few of the things that come to my mind when I think of a session with Lynne. I’ve felt stuck in a rut for quite a while now, always thinking I’ll do something about it soon. When I have a few days to myself, when I finish that work thing etc. Procrastinating really I suppose. A friend of mine shared Lynne’s page last year & I ‘liked’ it & enjoyed her content. I kept thinking, I must get in touch with her & see if there’s anything she can do with me!! But I held myself back because I thought maybe it’s just me being silly, I have a good life & good people around me, so I shouldn’t (😏) feel like I need help with anything! And so, more procrastinating.... until I finally got in touch. Well, in just a few sessions I cannot explain how different I feel about things. Lynne listened, empathised, encouraged & helped me feel like me again. When I think of the time I wasted making excuses not to get in touch with her sooner, I could scream!!! I didn’t need a reason at all, Lynne just chatted away & listened like I knew her for years & it felt so good. I feel so much more put together & lifted!! If you feel like I did, please don’t waste your time feeling like you need a big reason, as it’s reason enough if your thinking about it. Thank you so much Lynne, I’m forever grateful Antoinette 🤗"
I set out to work on a situation that was causing me daily anxiety and even panic attacks. Not only has that resolved completely after only a few sessions I also discovered amazingly that I was sleeping better, my back pain improved and I even have a new understanding of relationships with others. I highly recommend working with Lynne. CS.
I now have such a new understanding of what it means to live from the "inside out". I used to experience my life in a state of anxiety and overwhelm and honestly didn't think I could ever move through this. Working with Lynne has made such a big difference for me, I am so much calmer and this has also had a knock on effect on lots of areas of my life. Thank you! E.B
I decided to try Coaching to help prepare for an interview that I was dreading. I not only managed the interview from a place of calm, I also understand it was only the way my thoughts were that was creating the anxiety. Now I understand this generally life is much better and to top it off - I got the job! Thank you. JD.
“Lynne worked with my teenage daughter for a few sessions and has given her excellent support and strategies to help her with quite high levels of anxiety. Lynne is thoughtful, and is highly skilled at supporting people to understand their own thoughts and emotions. She is also very easy to talk to! My daughter feels this input has been invaluable” MN
