Update from Mum for Needle Phobia

Case Study – Rat Phobia

When I first met Angela she could not even speak about rats. 

A couple of days later I got a call from her. On the coming Saturday she was due to join a fund raising expedition to the Himalayas. However she had just been told by a colleague who had done the same trip that while camping on the slopes there are rodent-like creatures that would come into the tents at night! 

Angela was caught between a rock and a very hard place. She booked an emergency session with me for the next day. 

After only  90 minutes she accompanied me on a pre-arranged visit to the pet shop where she actually touched a rat! 

She was free to enjoy her climb.

 From First Free Session It Was Good Value For Money…

“Even from the first two free sessions this programme was good value for money! Linda explained how a phobia happens and showed me a practical way it can be resolved.

Those unpaid sessions really worked for me. They gave me my running shoes so I was on the starting blocks at the start of my first session. The programme was based on both teaching and working together. I feel Linda taught me how to fix my own problem.

She demonstrated how going back in time, even to birth, can resolve certain problems. And now she’s equipped me with a toolbelt of techniques and skills that have put me back in full control of my mind and mood.

I’ve already recommended her to a friend and would tell anyone considering booking not to hesitate.”


Gary Kirby, Claustrophobia

I Never Thought I’d Be Able To Overcome This….

Before working with Linda I would start to feel panic before coming downstairs in the morning. And If I saw a spider I would be terrified, feel sweaty and as If I couldn’t cope. If no one else was there to take it away I’d become hysterical and worked up. I never thought I’d be able to overcome this problem.

But after the Phobia to Freedom programme I feel completely calm and relaxed when I see a spider and can even deal with them myself. Moths also used to be a problem but no longer trouble me at all.

It’s amazing being able to feel independent. I no longer need someone else to be in the house. I can even use the bathroom in the night!

Everything we did had an impact on the problem and it’s allowed me to fully be who I am. It’s definitely changed me as a person and didn’t expect that.

I’d highly recommend Linda. With her help I’ve realised anything is possible.

Natasha J. Wolverhampton, Spider Phobia

Case Study – Dog Phobia

My client told me if he was any closer to a dog than 10 to 15ft he would be anxious and his heart would race. He’d been raised in India where he was always afraid of the stray dogs that would bark and maybe chase him.

But now his young daughter wants a dog!

It’s time to get rid of this problem for good. At the beginning of the programme he did wonder if it would be possible. But he was commited to seeing it through and kept an open and hopeful mind throughout our sessions.

Once we started working together he says he’s never experienced anything like the way we work before.

And now, for the first time in his life, he has the confidence to voluntarily face being close to a dog. You can see just how close he can be in the photo! Look how relaxed and happy he is.

After One Hour I Felt Better…

It’s amazing how I’ve gone from not being able to say the word or see a picture to stroking and cuddling a pet rat. They are quite cute actually. There’s no fear or panic now. I feel comfortable even about discovering a wild rat in the house. The first session was a big breakthrough. After only one hour I felt a lot better. If your phobia is impacting your life I would highly recommend Linda.

Lucy Scarfe, Rat Phobia

It’s Nothing Like You Think…

Highly recommend seeking Linda’s help if you’re looking to get your life back on track. It’s nothing like you think but in a good way. I was made to feel at ease in every session. So many different techniques and coping mechanisms I had never even heard of.

Super knowledgeable and very empathetic.

Allan Young, Panic Attacks

A Very Child Friendly Approach…

Linda has a very child friendly approach. It was so much better than his psychology appointment. Everything was about working with Hubert in his mind and on his thinking. Letting him see he was capable of changing his thinking. Linda put him in charge of himself. Hubert says he just doesn’t think about it any more. All worries are gone. I would 100% recommend Linda to everyone.

Sylwia Danielewicz, Son - Fear of Choking

I Felt Hopeless And Quite Desperate…

When I first contacted Linda I felt hopeless and quite desperate. I would try anything. I became immediately hopeful when Linda told me she only works with people with whom she believes she can be successful, to avoid disappointment. And she was willing to work with me!

I began to feel a part of the problem had gone, by the second session which was really encouraging. We covered quite a lot of things in each session without it being overwhelming.

Now when driving I feel confident, carefree and more than capable. If you’re considering booking with Linda just go for it. Each session is more than simply two people talking. The way she works opens your mind to new ways of thinking.

Maisie Read, Fear of Driving

I Wish I Hadn’t Waited So Long…

The way Linda changed my mindset was amazing. And I can apply it to other things in life. It’s been a massive learning for me. I’ve shared the free techniques with family and it’s worked for them too.

I wish I hadn’t waited so long! I can highly recommend Linda.

Joanne Lloyd, Public Speaking

I Knew We Were Going To Be Alright…

I thought Linda wouldn’t be able to help me. I’m one of the most unwilling people. But then we reached a point where I knew we were going to be alright. If Linda can help me she can help anyone!

EB. Driving Phobia

How Fast It Worked!….

The programme was unbelievably successful. I can’t believe how fast it worked! I’ve been able to test my fear and it is absolutely fine.

It was so easy to relate to Linda even though it was a video call. Linda is a lovely, kind, compassionate person and it comes across.

Sammy Palfrey, Fear of the Dark

I Thought It Couldn’t Be Solved…

Before I worked with Linda I thought it couldn’t be solved. After the first or second session I realised it could! You just have to persevere and keep your mind in the right place. The 1:1 sessions are really good and more effective than you expect them to be. If I use what I’ve learned it does make a difference. It’s important to do things the way you want to be doing it. I don’t have to take a shower every time I’ve been out. I’m able to eat out and enjoy it. I’m feeling different about germs, I realise they are not everywhere.

R.W. Fear of Germs

Now I’m Watching Rats On Instagram!..

When I first started working with Linda I thought I was having a nervous breakdown. There was a rat in the loft and that made me sleep downstairs. I couldn’t watch rats on TV, it made me panic. I’d have to cover my eyes. After the first session I felt so much better.

Now I’ve completely changed my outlook on rats. Now I’m watching rats on Instagram and considering getting one as a pet. I never thought we’d get to this point.

Linda is a very easy person to talk to and I was always relaxed after the session. I believe we’ve been successful because whenever Linda noticed progress was slowing she would move to a different technique.

LS, Rat Phobia

Get The Right Therapist…

I’ve had therapy before and feel it’s important to get the right therapist. From our initial chat something clicked between Linda and me. Her Treasure Chest is brilliant. It gives you tools to use that help you to adapt.

It is, of course, a learning curve. And it’s important to implement in everyday life any changes that have been made.

I feel relaxed about cats now and will be able to go on holiday to Argentina, where there are stray cats that wander into the restaurants, without a qualm.

Charlotte Bones, Cat Phobia

You Can’t Give Up…

It might take time but eventually it will go away. I promise you. You have to be committed and do what Linda tells you to do.

Linda is very good. If you feel a bit of panic sometimes, it will go away. Just stick with it. You can’t give up because then you won’t get rid of it. I’m very very grateful. My mum and my teacher say there’s been a big change.

Delilah age 10, Emetophobia

By the second week I knew it was working…

I didn’t think it would work at first. By the second week I knew it was working. It’s easy to talk to Linda and she knew a lot about my phobia. Now I’m looking forward to going with friends to an escape room. I could never have done that before.

And it’s nice to be like everyone else. I feel safe doing normal things now.

RM, Claustrophobia

This is going to be too hard.

At first I was sceptical and not sure anything could make me better. But after the first session I did feel a shift in mental strength and by the third session it was a relief to be making progress.

For a long time I’d been standing still, I’d given up, just taking the easy option. But from then on it was one step after another. It felt easy, comfortable and manageable. With Linda’s help I’ve changed how it used to make me feel.

S.K., Fear of Going Places

I didn’t think I’d get better

At the beginning Aoife had high anxiety, couldn’t sleep in her room if she’d seen a spider and would run away and scream if she saw one in the house. She was also bothered by bees and wasps.

This is what she says about the treatment.

At the start I didn’t understand what the techniques would do. I do now though! They’ve stopped the fear. Now I don’t mind spiders at all. I haven’t run away and screamed for a few weeks. I can sleep in my room if I’ve seen one and basically I don’t care about spiders at all. Recently a bee flew in my face and I just wafted it away.

Linda is very nice and explains everything well and I’d like to thank her for making me better.

Aoife Mallon, Spider Phobia

Not taking over life

When Caroline first started to work with me she would spread the towels in the children’s bedrooms and along the hall. They were never sick but she felt she couldn’t risk it.

 She never does that now. There’s no need. She told me recently she stepped out of her car and found a pool of sick. She literally took it in her stride. Just stepped over it and told the children to avoid it. Previously that would have really upset her.

There was need for her husband to visit a hospital and now she doesn’t need to make him get changed because of the risk of germs.

These are the ways that her phobia doesn’t impinge on her life so much.

C. Richardson. Emetophobia

I Was Sceptical…

“During the first session I was sceptical. Then before my next session I decided to open my mind. From then on all the techniques worked. The work I did with Linda took away a huge and unnecessary fear. I became able to see how silly it was and now can lead a normal life.

I’m so pleased to have gained some tools I can use myself to ensure that I’m able to manage my mind and mood in most situations.

At the start my problem was a big thunderstorm in my mind. Now it’s clear skies.”

Madeleine Chivers, Fear of Pregnancy

Linda is a truly remarkable practitioner who not only asks the right questions but listens to the right answers. I love working with her and so will you.

Simon Walker


I Would Never Have Been Able To Do This…

“Hi, I am Jianguo. I have had a public speaking phobia for decades. I read many relevant books and have seen a few psychologists. The phobia did not go away.

I was so lucky I met Linda. She dug very deeply into the phobia and figured out the approach that was just right for me. Now, after only 5 sessions, I’ve given a talk at a business meeting with three new faces. And I talked to them later, doing both very confidently.

I would never have been able to do this before our sessions. My boss told me my presence and speaking were amazing. Linda has lifted me out of that persistent public speaking phobia.”

Janguo Yan, public speaking phobia

That Feeling Is Gone Forever…

Linda was really great, she has a lovely warm personality, she is very authentic and I felt very much at ease with her. She is an experienced, intuitive worker.

After we finished I felt a new sense of relief. The emotional attachment I had, the discomfort I felt was gone and I felt totally at ease. It has been several weeks since then and I still feel the same, that uncomfortable feeling is gone forever.

Linda is absolutely fantastic, she is very experienced and she gives 100% to every session. I would recommend her to anyone.

L.H. Irrational Fear of Spending Money

I Feel So Fortunate To Have Met You…

“Natasha told me that whenever she had to face a needle she would panic,  scream and shake. She would feel light- headed as if she was going to faint and would not keep still, hold out her arm or look away.

After a few hours work together this is what she says about a blood test…

“I got it done! And on my first attempt! It wasn’t the smoothest blood test, had to be done a second time but I didn’t feel any of that and I still didn’t look! My partner was very helpful while we waited and I was able to maintain a calm state. I used everything you taught me and I just feel so fortunate to have met you at this time in my life.

Thank you so much for everything.”

Natasha Williams, Needle Phobia

I Never Felt Judged…

My sessions with Linda were really calm and helpful. I never felt judged and was never anxious before an appointment, instead I was excited. At first I couldn’t understand how just talking could take away my fear which was so strong.

Then I discovered it’s not just talking! Instead it’s like watching a show but you have the remote and can choose how it works out.

Molly Smith, Fear of Dying

Life Changing…

“It’s been life-changing. I now feel equipped to deal with life. After each session I could jump over a car!”

Catherine Hollins, Health Anxiety

In Five Hours It’s Gone…

“Most people with a spider Phobia think it’s part of them. Not possible to unpick that. But it absolutely is!

I had 40 years of suffering and now in 5 hours it’s gone!

Clare Doherty, Spider Phobia

It’s Gone Beyond My Expectations…

“Whenever Beth needed to go to a dentist, hospital even to visit or GP surgery she would panic and want to get out of that situation. If she had to have a needle procedure she would alsoget sweaty hands, cry or sob, her feet would squirm and she’d fiddle with her hands. Like a child.

We were able to visit some of the experiences in her childhood and resolve the trauma that child version had felt. Now she is capable of being an adult in all situations.

Beth says,” I thought everyone was afraid of the dentist. I didin’t know it was possible to have no anxiety! Now I have no anxiety about any needle procedure. During the programme I was able to build up a toolbelt of strategies to eliminate any anxiety that might crop up in any situation. Linda hasn’t just taken away the phobia and let me go off, she’s  given me things to help with all situations. It’s gone beyond my expectations.”


Beth Sutherland, Medical Anxiety and Needle Phobia

Working With You Was A Revelation!…

Just to let you know that I successfully drove on the motorway last week! I am so grateful that I was guided to you and immensely thankful for your skills that helped so much. Working with you was a pleasure and a revelation! Wishing you every success in your future.

Teresa O'Neill, Driving Phobia

You Notice It’s All Changed...

I used to have to talk to myself before going on a walk “Come on Olivia, there’s nothing to be scared of.” At first I didn’t think you could get rid of my problem working online. But you can!

Now when I go to a place where there are dogs running loose I’m saying “Oh look at that cute dog”! As you’re doing the session it might not seem to be doing anything but then when you see the thing you’re afraid of you notice it’s all changed!

Now I’m getting a puppy just 3 weeks after finishing the programme.

Olivia Allman (15), Dog Phobia

Linda Was Never Judgemental…

I felt extremely relaxed in all the sessions with Linda. No pressure at any time. At first I felt she might not understand how bad my social phobia was but I didn’t need to worry. In the first session Linda began with casual conversation and that allowed me to settle down.

The work we did together allowed me to delve into areas that had been closed. Linda made it possible for me to work this out for myself while she just supported me. She never pushed me but allowed me to work at my own pace.

Linda was never judgmental, always very understanding. I would highly recommend working with her.

Cassie Norrish, Social Phobia and Public Speaking

Was It Going To Work…

In my first session what we did was unexpected and I wondered if it was going to work. But it definitely does!

I was able to test it and find those anxiety feelings and panic had disappeared. You can just have confidence that it will work. Because it does. Have faith in yourself too.

RM. Fear of Animals

Linda Creates A New Pattern Of Thinking…

Linda is very good at exploring your unconscious views and she can then unfold that doubt and create a new pattern of thinking.

No matter how I tried I couldn’t get to that myself.

She can make people feel at ease. Even when it’s hard to see what’s wrong she can navigate through that. I would highly recommend you get her to help.

Karolina, Driving Phobia

Something Had Changed…

I used to freak out when I saw a dog and now I’m not scared at all. Before we started I didn’t think my problem could be solved. The sessions were helpful and gradually I could tell something had changed. Now I’ve got everything I wanted from the programme.

Imogen Davidson (11) Dog Phobia

OCD Gone After 30 Years!..

At first I was a bit nervous about the process but that soon dissipated. Linda has a very easy manner. Amongst my problems was OCD that I’d had for 30 years. Now it’s gone! I never expected it to go. My previous reactions to travel are now all resolved.

J. Davey, Travel Fear

Gained Valuable Skills…

From the first moment I spoke with Linda I felt calm and confident that I could share my inner most thoughts and fears with her. Linda has a gentle but effective approach which helped me to feel supported, encouraged and listened to.

Prior to my sessions with Linda I thought about spiders at least once every hour, of every day. As I said to Linda in my consultation, “I would let Hitler into my home to remove a spider”. I had adapted my life around avoiding spiders and felt trapped and anxious most of the time.

Linda has helped me to free myself from this burden and I now go about my day feeling very neutral about spiders, much like any other insect or bug. Linda adapted her way of working to suit my needs and allowed me to have great input in the work we did, such as removing a toy spider from my bath with a glass. Linda’s tools and Lewis’ videos have allowed me to change my thinking about not only spiders but other intrusive and often unkind thoughts about myself and I am so grateful for my new freedom.

I will continue to use these tools and feel I have not only been freed from a phobia but I have gained valuable skills which I will use for life.

Emily, Spider Phobia

It’s A Complete Package

Richard had had this problem for 10 years where he would feel light headed, arms out of control and a stomach rush. 5 years ago it got worse. Now that he’s finished the course this is what he says…

At the beginning I was dubious about whether this would work because I’d tried many other things and they had not. I was living in avoidance mode, rearranging every route and avoiding motorways. I even thought I might have this problem until I stopped driving.

I think what worked about this programme is the sheer breadth of what we did. Also Linda gave me a tool kit to use that immediately put me in control. So it’s a complete package where every element has its use.

For anyone considering booking I’d say definitely give it a go and be completely open-minded. Be prepared for it to be a process.

Richard, Driving phobia

Now if it happens, it happens!


At first I didn’t think it would work. So the first thing that worked was I stopped dreaming about anybody being sick. I’ve got ways now to calm myself from the Treasure Chest so I don’t worry about it at all.

If I got a stomach ache now I would think if it happens, it happens!

A. B. Age 14, Emetophobia

You’ve changed a life.


Before my phobia sessions began, I had a phobia of slugs. I had it for about as long as I could remember and it was becoming difficult to step out of the house when it rained. I remember a feeling of utter terror at the thought of seeing a slug.

On my first impression of Linda and the Phobia Therapy Course, I was vaguely sceptical. How, I thought, could nine forty-minute sessions revert something that had started nine years ago?

It turns out I spoke too soon – my first impression was completely wrong. In our first ever session, Linda established that the sessions were more of helping me overcome my phobia – and that she also wished to help me.

At the end of just that session, more work had been done in forty minutes than in the past nine years. I was still scared, but less so, and I understood why.

Over the next nine weeks, I progressively was scared less and was impressed more. The techniques, reasoning and explanations felt professional (and they worked.)
Now that phobia is a minor fear or discomfort, and I have Linda to thank for it.

For anyone considering booking sessions, I would strongly recommend doing so. The course/sessions work and the people are very kind.

“HE WALKED STRAIGHT OUT OF THE DOOR on a very rainy day to get to his drum lesson” says Mum.

Finn, Age 12, Slug phobia

Like her old self

Lois told me she feels the programme has gone really well. She’s a lot happier and can calm herself down much easier.

Her Mum mentioned things that are better too, like she’s not asking if she’s going to be alright every day, she can sustain a calm manner and there have been spells of a few days where it’s just not a thing.

Lois is going out again, she’s taken up biking and her Mum says she’s more like herself.

Lois, Age 11, emetophobia

Watching Celebrity Jungle!

I asked mum what improvement she’d noticed in her daughter. She told me she was happier in herself, much more visible in the family…not in her room worrying.

She’s now a normal teenager going out with her friends. Her normal personality has come back. She’s more confident, managed better, doesn’t worry about sick as much. Her mindset is stronger and she actually watches Celebrity Jungle where they eat horrid things and are often heaving!

She’s more brave. Went to Bath on the bus which she would not have done before.

She eats out, can try a takeaway which would have been out of the question at first. She’s not checking dates as much either. They just joke about it.
