Lynda's Profile Picture

Originally from the south-east of England, Lynda served for over 20 years with the British Diplomatic Service in management and consular roles with overseas postings in the Far East and South-East Asia, India and Pakistan, the South Pacific, West Africa and Latin America.

In 2003 Lynda settled in Spain to raise a young family and has been heavily involved with the local expat community. She initially ran a small language studio and newcomers’ groups, and taught Spanish to nervous first - time adult learners, as well as self-development for children and teenagers before moving into more general life coaching, counselling and emotional healing. She has recently “retired” as President of the national mental health charity Samaritans in Spain after having initially joined the Board of Trustees in 2014.

In 2020 Lynda published her first book “Brains at the Border” (available in paperback and kindle from all Amazon marketplaces including Amazon.co.uk / Amazon.es) about the psychological and emotional impact of expatriate life around the world. With her background and vast experience, she is ideally placed to support expat clients in particular. However, she would love to hear from those seeing help whether at home or abroad! Lynda offers personal and confidential life coaching, counselling and emotional healing sessions in person or via phone, Zoom/Skype/WhatsApp calls at convenient times to suit.
