Linda has enabled me to explore areas of my life which I am finding difficult. Rather than just avoiding the things which are holding me back, Linda has supported me to reflect on what I might like to change and how I may be able to do this. She is so easy to talk to that I have not felt embarrassed or awkward. I find it difficult to ask for help, but Linda has made me feel that I am helping myself. She doesn’t give me ‘answers’ but has enabled me to view my feelings in a different way and consider alternatives.
I found my life coaching experience to be very uplifting and empowering. The fact that you listened to me 100% instilled me with so much confidence and it felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders as I had been carrying around a lot of excess baggage of negative thoughts. After the first session there felt light at the end of the tunnel and I was feeling more positive. The rapport we had together felt as if no subject was taboo so thank you.

Linda encouraged me to look at things from a different perspective and we practised some exercises that helped me to develop strategies to resolve my problems for myself, which is the main aim of Life Coaching. I found it to be an amazingly rewarding and calming process and would not hesitate to recommend Linda to anyone who is feeling troubled by any aspects of their life. She is wonderfully empathetic, perceptive and totally professional.
I have recently visited Linda to deal with pressures from the past and present. Linda has a very unique way of helping you achieve the life you deserve. So glad I saw Linda and would thoroughly recommend her to others.
Such a warm, professional and compassionate lady. Linda is made for the role as a life coach. Would highly recommend her.
It was fab! I really enjoyed it and came away with lots to think about and have had a couple of 'wow' moments since the day,when I have really considered why and how I feel about certain things and how I react and how they are linked to so many past events! I am trying to work through them with your suggestions and inspirations from the day.

I found Linda through an online register of life coaches that support people with ADHD. I have a fairly recent diagnosis and it has been a bit of a struggle. Linda was very kind, listened to me and came up with some practical strategies to help me manage my anxiety, and put into practice some solid ways of organising myself and beginning to overcome my talent for procrastination. The sessions were fun and always helpful, and the work done has been an ongoing help to me.
My preconceived views on this type of therapy were very wrong. Linda asked me questions I'd never asked myself. She made me think of things I'd never thought of. Through a mixture of NLP & cognitive exercises, I began to re-think my thought processes & consider the reasons behind why my brain reacted the way it did to various situations. I could re-channel myself & gain control over my own mind. She made me believe that the chaos in my head could be tamed. I can make myself think & feel differently!
There are two things I want to say about Linda King: firstly, she's a very knowledgeable and skilled life coach, and secondly she's a really kind, thoughtful, empathic, generous person. If you're having any doubts about coaching with Linda, you don't need to - go for it - you won't regret it.
I needed some practical advice on how to manage my time running a business with ADHD, and I'd looked around for ADHD and/or life coaches for a while before deciding to approach Linda. I wasn't sure at all what to expect, but it felt from the first like I was talking to a supportive, wise friend. Linda asked the kind of intelligent, perceptive questions which helped me gain insight into the issues I have with time and attention management and the resulting anxiety. She at no point told me what to do, but she guided me to find solutions which work for me.
And, on top of that, she also did a brief Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) session with me during one of our coaching times. I came to it with an open mind, neither negative nor expecting a miracle, Linda talked me through it, I followed her instructions and then forgot about it. But since then I've noticed little by little positive results, and more positive results, and more... I almost hesitate to say this could be a life-changer for me, but it's looking that way.
