About Chantry Health – My Approach

For me it is the individual that matters, and at the outset I aim to understand where they would like some help, and to clarify what the issues, blocks or obstacles are. I will then tailor our sessions drawing on a single or combined approach using whatever resources we think will be the most helpful for them.

Having a range of therapies and approaches to draw upon is useful in itself – a therapeutic tool kit. Over the years I have also found that understandings and insights from different fields contribute to my overall understanding and experience, enhancing my effectiveness.

About Lynne Russell

Over the years I have always worked in areas where I was finding out about people. What made them tick, the challenges they faced and what they wanted out of life. The experience and knowledge I gleaned during my years in health food retail management, and the pharmaceutical industry have been of immense value. In 1997 I realised I wanted to train to become a natural health practitioner. Like many of my colleagues, the benefits to my own health prompted me to undertake a four-year homeopathic training.

To this I then added further trainings in NLP (neuro-linguistic programming), Life and Business Coaching, and Hypnotherapy. Creating an overall approach that I felt gave me more to offer people when they felt “stuck”.

Being a full-time practitioner has been wonderfully inspiring. I have been able to immerse myself, deepening my knowledge and experience, especially in the area I was most drawn to – the transitional times and the challenges they bring in people’s lives.
