"I cannot put into words how much I appreciated my time with Lynette. After experiencing domestic violence over 12 years ago and subsequent violence from a relative on occasions over many years, I finally felt ready to face my past and to find closure, as it was severely impacting relationships, my self worth and self esteem. Lynette helped me work through difficult emotions and understand my feelings in such a patient, kind and empathetic way. Her passion to help and guide others through their difficulties is inspiring and commendable. I was always made to feel comfortable, relaxed and not at any time judged. Lynette helped me find the closure I needed and taught me how to 'love' myself again through techniques that I will use again in the future. I needed to make peace with my past otherwise it would have continued to ruin any chance of a happy future, which I deserve. Lynette patiently saw me through a difficult transition in my personal life, her genuine care, support and belief shone through all of the time. I feel I am a completely different person now and for this, I am truly thankful to Lynette. I would like to thank Lynette for helping me find closure and to let go of my past; I can now move forward and look ahead to a happy future."

"Suffering with anxiety and needing to take time off work, I found contacting someone for help as a huge step. Speaking with Lynette was an easy experience from the first session, she is friendly and understanding and every time I left a session I felt like I could accomplish anything. I found it so easy to talk to her and never once felt like I was on my own and even now I know shes there if I ever feel I need some support and that is comforting to know. Lynette has helped me overcome a lot of my issues and given me the tools to help myself. So grateful for all her help and support."

Male - Neath

"Right from the beginning Lynette was warm, friendly and putting me at ease. I began to see that I was too focused on other people's needs with little idea about my own. Through discussion and written exercises I have been able to identify situations that I would not consider my own needs and feel comfortable in saying no and setting boundaries when needed. The impartial advice and validation of my situation has helped me in my new role at work and in my personal life."

Female - Neath

"I cannot thank Lynette enough for her help and support and guidance during a particularly challenging point in my life. When I first met Lynette I was lost, sad and a shadow of my former self. After only a few short session things changed massively for me, in way that a few weeks prior I could not have envisaged. Lynette is a truly wonderful, kind and very talented person. I think Lynette is incredible at what she does, and without her I would not be in the great place I am today. Since meeting Lynette I have recommended her fabulous service to friends and family because I know how beneficial seeing her has been to me."

"As a terrible over-thinker when my personal situation changed for the worse I entered into a mental merry-go-round that would spiral down and lead to depression. At these times I found it very difficult to see a way out or any light at the end of the tunnel. It was a difficult decision for me to seek counselling and even more nerve wracking to spend time talking through my issues. Lynette was able to help shine a light into some of my dark places and help me recognise the self-harming psychological cycle that I was engaged in. Lynette was able to give me poignant advice, taking out many of the emotional constraints that I had self-imposed while not ignoring or belittling these feelings. Lynette is a true professional with a substantial depth of knowledge and uses great skill to bring this knowledge bear. She is really down to earth, empathic and very easy to talk to. From the moment I met her I knew I could trust her and I knew going to her for help was the right decision."

Female - Neath

"When I was at my lowest point I decided to look for a counsellor and found Lynette. I had no idea what to expect. The first sessions were very difficult and tearful. I thought at that point it would take months to make any difference because I felt so bad. In 6 to 7 sessions I was a completely different person and able to talk about issues for the first time in my life with no tears. My anxiety about everything, past present and future has gone. I have a sense of appreciation for what is happening in the moment without being anxious about the future. Techniques learnt give me a wonderful sense of calm. One piece of advice I would give is to find the right counsellor and for me that was Lynette. I also know that she is still contactable and there for me if I need her. Thank you so much Lynette."

Male - Neath

"Having suffered from anxiety and depression on and off for many years and being treated by my GP, I looked to counselling and therapy to help. This is when I found Lynette. During the first session she was able to tease out the many of the reasons for the way I was feeling. She explored my core beliefs something that I had no idea would be affecting the way I coped and felt about things. Lynette was able to help me put many of my thoughts into perspective. This allowed me to make some radical but positive decisions regarding my work which have all been a positive. I would highly recommend Lynette as she is very professional and knowledgeable, yet has a empathetic, supportive and open personality. This enables you to feel settled and comfortable allowing you to open up and to deal with your problems."

Female - Neath

"Being so young I never took my mental health issues seriously because I, wrongly, believed that younger people cannot suffer with mental health issues to the severity I was. For years and years, I locked that part of me up, put on a front so people would not see my 'weaknesses'. This was until my mental issues started to affect my physical health, to the point I could no longer make it to university lectures or hold a job down. I was distraught. After talking to family members, I was pushed in Lynette's direction and I honestly couldn't be any happier. She was an absolute blessing. Lynette has helped me in more ways than just ensuring that I got back on track with my mental health but also with dealing with the physical effects my crippling anxiety and depression caused. I've found someone I can talk to in a safe, calm friendly environment. Thanks to Lynette's help, I have a new way of thinking about everything. I am going back to university in September and I have found a job I love. Neither of these things would have happened without"

Female - Neath

"I went to Lynette with a massive lack of confidence and anxiety issues but after just a few sessions; friends and family have all noticed a change for the better in my personality as if i have come out of my shell. I now feel more confident, less anxious and tend to think more positively in general"

Female - Neath

"Talking to Lynette helped me to confront issues that had affected me (knowingly and unknowingly) for years. Lynette's friendly approach put me at ease immediately and I found her extremely easy to talk to. Through our sessions Lynette helped me find the direction and focus I needed to change my life for the better and I've seen real results after only a few months. I now feel more confident and in control of my life. Lynette's support was invaluable in achieving this."

Female - Neath

"Having suffered with depression most of my life I honestly thought there was no hope or way out for myself. I decided to try counselling and contacted Lynette. I didn't think it was going to work if I'm honest, but even after the first session I noticed a difference. Lynette is kind, warm, honest and such a lovely person with a wonderful gift and way with people. Lynette has given me my life back, she's given me confidence, made me believe in myself. It took so much for me to finally sort my life out, take that big step and I wish I had done it years ago. Counselling with Lynette has changed so much more than just myself, my relationships with my closest loved ones has improved so much more and my comfort eating has dissipated on its own. I feel like I have all the tools to deal with life's ups and downs. I'm happy, confident and most of all just enjoying life."

Female - Swansea

"I truly don't know where to begin you have helped me more than I can put into words. After years of heartache through the bereavement of my children, difficult life challenges and carrying the guilt and negativity I felt about myself, you have shown me that a lot of what I felt is not mine to carry and shown me that I am a valuable and courageous woman who is confident and doesn't need to hide away. I cannot describe the happiness I feel after your help and shedding all the negativity that I held for so long."

Female - Swansea

"Contacting Lynette was such a big step for me but the moment I met her I felt at ease. Some of the things I discussed with Lynette I had never discussed with anyone before. Lynette helped me change my life for the better and helped me find the "closure" I had been looking for. Besides Lynette's extensive qualifications, her professional nature and personality make you feel at ease and not once during the sessions did I feel judged. I am now in a stable relationship and having coping mechanisms to manage my issues if they start causing me problems which they rarely do now. I finished with Lynette over a year ago and I know she is always there if I need to chat, it is a comforting feeling when you know someone knows everything about you, all your demons and past issues and not feel judged at all. I would recommend Lynette to anyone, I don't like to think where my life path would have taken me if I didn't meet her, she has changed my life for the best."

Female - Swansea

"I have suffered with depression for almost all of my adult life and have had difficulty forming and maintaining relationships, so making the first step to contact Lynette was a very difficult one. With Lynette's kindness, patience and understanding, I have been able to find the underlying cause of my depression, release years of painful emotions and find ways to work through it. I cannot commend her enough for the genuine empathy and support I received whilst she helped and guided me in finding the tools to organise my thoughts (and life) positively. I am a totally different person now (it shows! everyone has noticed!), and contacting Lynette has been one of the best and most important decisions I've ever made."

Male - Swansea

"Lynette has helped me gain perspective in a very chaotic life. I was unable to manage simple situations, and felt I was in imminent danger of an over reaction that would have lasting consequences, personally and professionally. When I sought help I expected to have to spend a long time undoing the damage caused by years of mental and physical overexertion, but Lynette was able to give me perspective and choices in a very short space of time. I've kept the counselling private, but it's been commented on and noticed in many areas that I have a different outlook. I've seen improvements working with people I once regarded as 'difficult', and I'm sure many have the same feeling regarding me. Family life and challenges are also so much more relaxed and fulfilling. If you're worried this isn't for you, there is no stigma with exploring what makes you tick. I found every session incredibly rewarding, and the process has enhanced and improved an already successful and fulfilling life."

Female - Neath

"Lynette has helped me to face things in my past and be able to find 'closure' on certain events that have been affecting me for years. Lynette is a very kind and approachable person, showing genuine empathy and true professionalism. I want to thank her for enabling me to have a new start in life and to let go of the past."

Male - Neath

"I wasn't sure what to expect with meeting a Counsellor, but after my first session with Lynette I started to understand why I felt the way I did, which was complete worthlessness and not wanting to carry on with my life. Lynette was ready to listen, discover the causes and explore solutions. I am feeling 100 times better after only 6 sessions and can't believe the change in my daily outlook. I never thought this would happen to someone like me?

Goes to show we are all 'only human'. Lynette is an excellent Counsellor and I would recommend her as she is extremely caring, genuine and worth her weight in gold. Thank you. "

Female - Port Talbot

"Before meeting Lynette my comfort eating was out of control, I was unhappy with myself physically and an emotional mess. But rather than treat the effects of my issues like I had been doing previously, by dieting with no success, I thought I'd try counselling where Lynette helped me address the cause of my comfort eating. Within a few sessions the cause was determined and Lynette helped me find the confidence I needed to take control of my life. I felt at ease sharing my innermost thoughts with her and trusted her completely. Her genuine care for my wellbeing shone through and I was amazed at how quickly my life changed once she helped me become aware of my thoughts and feelings. I am now more positive about life am losing weight with no real effort and am happy once again, for this I will be eternally grateful to Lynette"

Male - Port Talbot

"Making the decision to have counselling and talking to someone about my problems was not an easy step but thankfully I choose Lynette and I found the whole process to be far less daunting than I had previously imagined. Lynette is very welcoming and professional which made me feel at ease straight away and so I felt comfortable discussing my troubles with her. She is an excellent listener and helped me to solve the issues I was currently facing which enabled me in turn to face up to and rectify the things which were negatively affecting my life. I feel like I am now able to move forward with my life in a much more positive manner and am much better equipped to deal with any issues that may arise in the future. I would definitely recommend Lynette to anyone who needs help."

Female - Bridgend

"I contacted Lynette after being diagnosed with post natal anxiety. I was incredibly anxious and always on "high alert". Lynette put me at ease as soon as I met her. As our sessions progressed Lynette taught me a range of coping strategies and helped me to challenge my thoughts. I cannot thank Lynette enough for all of her help and support. If you are feeling at all anxious and feel that you need to contact someone, don't hesitate, get in touch with Lynette, she really can make a great difference!"

Female - Bridgend

"Since having sessions with Lynette I feel like I have grown as a person and gained so much confidence. I don't worry about how other people think of me and I have finally accepted myself for who I am."

Male - Port Talbot

"People told me it would take months to manage my depression and anxiety but I only needed a few sessions with Lynette. She helped me understand what was causing my depression and how to manage any thoughts that came into my head I didn't want and helped me control my anxiety. I will always appreciate the help that she gave me. Thanks Lynette."

Female - Swansea

"When I first contacted Lynette I was in an extremely dark place. I knew I had to get help but feared talking to a counsellor. One of the first things Lynette did was reassure me. I went to my first session fully convinced that I was beyond help and my life was totally hopeless. I had locked away every bad emotion and it was eating me up inside. I thought I had too many problems to ever solve. That opinion soon changed, week by week I felt myself get stronger. I soon started to feel alive again and not just going through the motions waiting to die. Lynette not only saved me but she gave my child back the mommy they deserved and I will be forever grateful. This woman is a total angel. "

Female - Bridgend

"When I first met Lynette, I had been living with agoraphobia, anxiety, panic attacks and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I hadn't been out of the house alone for nearly 2 and a half years. As soon as we met, I knew Lynette would be able to help me. She is kind, caring and she listens without judgement. Over the course of just 2 months, we had established what had caused my problems and we worked through them at a pace that she made sure I was comfortable with. Before I knew it I was going outside alone. Lynette, you are a wonderful human being, thank you so much for all your help. Me and my family have never been happier and we have you to thank for it. Without you I would have never dealt with my past experiences and I would never feel as fantastic as I feel now. Thank you."

Female - Port Talbot Area

"When I first met Lynette, I was a heartbroken mess. I was very anxious and permanently on "high alert". Over quite a short period of time, with a lot of patience and empathy on her part, she helped me put the pieces of my life back together. She is a consummate professional and in my opinion, one of the best in her field. She has wisdom far beyond her years. I can honestly say that I am now a different person, far more confident and much better equipped to deal with whatever life decides to throw at me. Lynette is a ONE-OFF. She is a kind, empathetic, clever, insightful lovely person"

Male - Swansea Area

"When I first came to see Lynette I was a very anxious and frightened person who was not able to cope with the things every day life throws at you. Lynette has managed to guide me on to the right path with a lot of help, encouragement and support. I now feel I have the strength to be the person I was always meant to be! I couldn't have done it without her. Thanks so much Lynette."

Female - Swansea Area

"I saw Lynette for some 3 months in a desperate bid to gain the help I needed to make a change in my life, after many other failed attempts with other sources. I instantly felt at ease with Lynette, I trusted her. Lynette broke down my problem into small pieces so I could see the situation for what it really was, she helped me explore the facts and helped me accept these. Actually admitting that the facts were real was just as hard, But Lynette allowed me to do this at my own pace, using visual aids/text to assist. She also instilled motivation in me, to equip myself with the external advice I needed to make changes for better. Lynette give me back, a priceless gift; 'the me', that I thought I'd lost."

Male - Llanelli Area

"Lynette has been absolutely brilliant. After a few sessions I told her things I had never told anyone else. She made me feel comfortable, open and honest about my thoughts and feelings . She helped me put things into perspective and re-evaluate my life situation. I'm so grateful for everything she has done for me. I don't know where I'd be without her. Thank you."

Female - Port Talbot Area

"Lynette made me feel comfortable and at ease straight away. She listened to what I had to say. She didn't judge or make me feel that my issues were unimportant. She really helped me see things from a different perspective. The arranging of the first appointment was the most difficult step but I was was very glad that I took it. I would wholeheartedly recommend Lynette as a counsellor. She has really helped me to move forward with my life and has equipped me with valuable tools with which I can move forward."

Female - Neath Area

"I've struggled with anxiety for a number of years and finally made the decision to talk to a Counsellor. Although I was very nervous and unsure about what to expect I can honestly say from the heart that booking that first appointment with Lynette was without a doubt one of the best decisions I've ever made. She is extremely genuine, supportive, understanding and very easy to talk to, from the first meeting she put me completely at ease - I looked forward to our sessions and found each one of them very beneficial. With her guidance I feel much more able to deal with certain things in my life, I no longer have the fears I once did, I feel working with Lynette helped me to find the strength that I needed. I have already happily recommended Lynette to friends, she really has been absolutely wonderful and I cannot thank her enough for her help.

"I immediately felt at ease with Lynette and this helped us to quickly get to the source of my anxiety. When we did this Lynette was able to unlock the door to my mind and by using some simple exercises and listening she helped me to understand and deal with the issues that I felt had been troubling me for many years. Lynette's calm and understanding nature helped me to get the best out of our sessions and this in turn helped me to understand my thoughts and emotions. Since then I have been able to put my life back in to perspective and would not have been able to do this without your help, support and guidance. Thank you."

Female - Swansea Area...

"I had just survived 18 years of domestic abuse when I first met Lynette. I was depressed, anxious and suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and all the other characteristics of a victim of domestic abuse: no self belief, no self esteem, lack of confidence and assertiveness etc etc. With genuine kindness empathy and expertise Lynette has supported me through a long journey of self discovery and recovery. The guidance, help, support and empathy that I recieved from Lynette has enabled me to make big changes in myself and my children and I am reaping the benefits of what I learnt. Our lives are totally different now, it has been turned around and we are safe, happy and lucky. This is down to Lynette's dedication and determination. So Thank You, I just wish everyone could benefit from Lynette's support."

I really feel as if I've moved on from feeling a bit 'lost' to a place where I now feel capable of dealing with (just about) anything that life can throw at me. I can't describe how positive I feel at the minute. I am looking forward to a happier healthier life."

"I have found Lynette to be very professional in her work and has helped me tremendously. I contacted Lynette desperate for some understanding in my life as I suffered depression for the past 4 years. Within weeks I was gaining confidence, understanding and some one who believed in me as a person. I find Lynette very easy to talk to. I am now walking around with confidence and looking at me and my life a whole lot differently!"
