Calm Hart Hypnotherapy

Lyneth Howells-Snodden BA (Hons), P.G.C.E., A.T.C., Dip. HSOH. NT.

After 26 years of being a creative middle teacher in education, my life drastically changed. After suffering three heart attacks and spending a week in a coma, my near death experience left me having to begin all over again. I had to relearn how to walk and talk, to slow my life right down, and I decided that I needed to change the path I was on. Using my love of art and the power of my mind, I decided to reshape who I was. Revisiting my degree, I retrained and have now become a professional educator and therapist. I believe that through my life experiences, I have the empathy and understanding to help you confront your problems and achieve your goals and desires in life.

I am well placed to offer extended empathy and understanding to clients and their problems. I had to change my life completely and in doing so realised I can also help others on their journey to overcome weight issues, smoking, anxiety attacks, stress, confidence, phobias, psychosomatic reactions and family bereavement through cancer, having overcome all these problems myself. Through my therapies, I have helped many clients from all age groups and particularly enjoy working with issues that I myself have overcome as this is my way of sharing my experiences for the good of others. I have always believed: teach what you know to be true. I was given a second chance at life and now I want to turn around the lives of others. I have a compelling personality and my enthusiasm to help shines through. So, if you would like me to help you, all you have to do is believe you can and you’re half way there.

Testimonials

"I have nothing but love and thanks for Lyneth. Finding myself time and time again at the end of a road with nobody to help; my mind and body hitting a constant wall of defence whenever a "professional" would try to connect with me, our paths eventually crossed and I have never looked back. From the relaxed, laid back, non-clinical approach, as soon as you enter her space, her life experiences outweighing theory based learning and place her in such a strong position as a therapist. In my experience, there is no greater way to connect with others, than if you have experienced similar situations first hand and Lyneth's experiences have no bounds.

"Her relaxed methods both guide and support you concurrently and make you feel that you are always in safe hands; more importantly you feel that your life storey is secure and shall never leave the four walls from within which it was told.

"It is this special person, and the atmosphere that she creates which allows even the most resilient of souls to open up and befriend her and her methods.

"With such comfort, trust, respect and understanding many, like myself, can have burdens lifted, changes come to fruition and confidence restored.

"If you have any troubles or physical restraints, take an hour out of your life and see Lyneth. Be free, love others and most importantly learn to love yourself.

"Thank you Lyneth for turning my life around and showing me there is more to living, life and 'ME'."

"Having never had hypnotherapy before, I was quite nervous on my first session but was quickly put at ease by Lyneth with a thorough explanation of the process prior to starting. Initially I had a simple relaxation session to get me used to the process and to make sure I was comfortable with everything.

"The lovely surroundings in Lyneth's home, particularly the therapy room, and her hospitality were second to none and really helped to ensure it didn't feel like a shrink's office! I felt safe and at ease and ready for the commencement of the session.

"I must admit I was a little sceptical at first but am open to alternative therapies but soon after Lyneth started the session it was obvious that she had quickly managed to connect with my sub conscious. After the first session I definitely felt relaxed and slept so well that night! Feeling comfortable to proceed with further sessions, Lyneth was able to take me down further and get to the bottom of a couple of issues. Admittedly, some of the feelings experienced were a little odd but not scary, just odd, especially when I am usually so "in control" of my life, to unconsciously have unexpected reactions really opened my eyes to the level at which your sub-conscious works. Any scepticism I had went out the window and, once again, at the end of the session I felt a sense of a weight off my shoulders, a certain contentment and relaxation.

"Lyneth is very professional and seems to have a natural attunement with people. I never felt like I was "out of control" at any time and I certainly wasn't made to do anything I didn't feel comfortable with (not like you often see on the TV!).

"It's difficult to explain in words the feeling one has after a hypnotherapy session but I can recommend that you try it to find out for yourself. All positive improvement!!

"I strongly recommend Lyneth's services. She is an amazing hypnotherapist, amongst many other skills. Her practice is very inviting, homely and comfortable."

"I went to visit Lyneth to help with my problems with anxiety. After just one session with her I already started to feel relaxed and at ease. I had never tried hypnotherapy before and this is something I would definitely recommend. It wasn't scary at all, it was the complete opposite and Lyneth made me feel relaxed and confident. I attended two sessions and found the therapy to be exceptional. I felt at total ease with the CBT hypnosis technique she applies to each session as she makes you feel very comfortable throughout and I easily slipped into a state of hypnosis. You are always aware of what is happening and can relax knowing that you are being supported throughout. She is very calming, welcoming and puts you at ease and has a positive influence to help you overcome your fears and anxieties. An excellent therapist and I have no hesitation in recommending."

"I have always held hypnotherapy in mild contempt sceptical of its value and effect. I had one session with Lyneth as I suffer from headaches and let's just say I'm no longer a sceptic ..... And I didn't have a headache when I left. Thank you Lyneth for opening a new avenue of self help I would never have believed it!"

Lynn 47

"It is very much Lyneth's skill and experience as a practitioner, that I believe has been the key factor in my improvement. Specifically, she has helped me gain a deep insight into the underlying thought processes that have created and sustained problems such as social anxiety and lack of self-belief. I feel significantly better in the knowledge that Lyneth's help and guidance, combined with her therapeutic techniques, have made a real difference where many previous attempts have failed. I would strongly recommend her services to anyone experiencing similar problems."
