“Great counsellor. Listened and provided a safe place and some strategies for the week. Thank you.” (EAP Client)

Linda’s role as a counsellor is to help you to uncover your own solutions, by listening carefully to your concerns, helping you to consider alternative perspectives, and offering tools and strategies that enable you to cope more effectively with life’s challenges.

Linda uses a range of evidence-based techniques to help you find new ways to think about your situation and learn positive coping strategies.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy resonates with me, because it promotes engaging with the full range of human experience, and teaches us to handle difficult thoughts and feelings more effectively so that we can live a full, rich and meaningful life”
