Client Reviews

  • "Frances is a very skilled therapist who supported me to overcome some very complex trauma. She made me feel safe and able to explore my difficulties in a very containing way. I will be forever grateful for my therapy with her and would fully recommend her services."

  • "Completing EMDR therapy has been life changing and really insightful.  I learnt a lot about myself and have been astounded at the impact of reprocessing memories I wasn’t even aware were affecting me.  Through EMDR I have been able to make and sustain a number of changes that I did not think was possible.  Dr Lindon was kind, generous and empathetic and her approach really supported my progress.  I have recommended EMDR to so many people following my really positive experience."

  • "Since my sessions with Dr Lindon, people close to me have commented that I'm much calmer and much more settled in myself and am now able to handle mistakes and failure and accept them as part of the learning process."

  • "I can’t thank Frances enough for providing me with the tools to be able to deal with the anxiety I was experiencing at work. We were also able to work through some previous trauma using EMDR and now I feel at peace with my past, and better able to deal with stressful situations in a much more constructive and positive way’."

  • Callum says "I have found EMDR therapy to be life-changing, I was initially sceptical of the process but I cannot argue against the results which have been immensely positive for me. I found Frances to be very empathetic and felt listened to throughout the process. This is, without doubt, the best thing I have ever done and my only regret is not doing it sooner."
