Linda Mortimer BSc., MSc., D.Hyp, MNCH (Acc)
I am a GHR registered Clinical Hypnotherapist accredited by the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH), and a member of the Complimentary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). I also hold the Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma (HPD).I have a BSc and Masters degree in Psychology, and have worked for many years in mental health, psychological research and teaching psychology. Whatever role I have taken, the main focus has been in helping people become all that they can be. Training in hypnotherapy at the London Hypnotherapy Academy means that I can now help people in a therapeutic setting, to tackle the problems that may be preventing them from living a happy and fulfilled life.
I find hypnotherapy a fascinating process, and am continually pleased and amazed at the way it can transform lives and free people from problems that have dogged them for so many years. It is a purposeful process that helps people who are stuck in a rut. It's simple but effective techniques can transform your life. It certainly changed mine.
Hypnotherapy is appropriate for a wide variety of client issues from personal development, sport and academic performance, stress management, fears, phobias, addictions, surgical and dental anxiety, confidence issues, pain control, women’s health.
I also work with children, teens and young adults, an area that is a specialism for me as a secondary teacher. I find it fulfilling to help them to find resources within themselves in order to cope better and to overcome any issues that may be hindering them or holding them back. I am DBS certified, and experienced in helping young teens and adults
find new tools in order to cope with issues such as social anxiety, depression, eating disorders, exam nerves, self confidence and bullying.
I use an intergrative approach to hypnotherapy, combining ideas and techniques from a range of theoretical and pratical backgrounds that includes Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy and Solution Focused Hypnotherapy.
