I came to this practice from a place of suspecting I had post-traumatic stress disorder as an underlying cause for the sudden onset of hyperacusis. Being assessed by Dr Deeley confirmed quite a severe diagnosis and she quickly assured me there were treatments available, which was a great relief for me. I immediately felt in safe hands so starting a course of EMDR seemed like the next logical step to healing. I am so glad I took that journey with Linda. After what felt like a lifetime of not listening to my body, and allowing the past traumas to remain unprocessed, I was amazed and slightly spooked by how quickly the treatment allowed me to feel traumas stored by my body. Those pains were released and processed so gently, I will be forever grateful for those sessions in which I could release difficult experiences of domestic abuse, familial trauma, the difficulties of living abroad and working with people displaced by war in conflict-affected areas. I found in Linda the great combination of talking with the wise, kind listener, processing with a doctor, and assembling an arsenal of tools to cope with difficulty in the future with a caregiver. One month on from starting treatment I already feel a revolutionary shift in the way I cope with difficult situations. Things are not always easy but accepting that has made things easier in itself. Learning to choose the kinder path has changed so much. Perhaps most notably I feel like I came back to myself and a core of resilience that was shrouded but not damaged by trauma. Listening to my body, and inner advisor, is a practice I will endeavour to take with me through life. Thank you.
