Lynda is a passionate and natural speaker, who totally transfixed me with her down to earth and genuine manner. On reflection, it was Lynda’s total candidness that really hit me – and made me realise that it’s not often I’ve seen a truly genuine presenter. T. Wilson, Naked Health Food, Gold Coast

Lynda helped me get through the worst stage of my life. I was feeling lost, lonely, guilty and everything else as I lost my husband at 41 years old. The doctors had prescribed anti-depressants but this wasn’t helping as the anxiety and panic attacks were a common everyday occurrence. Since I saw Lynda, I have not had one panic or anxiety attack. Thank you Lynda, you have put my life back in perspective.   Marie Guse, Brisbane

In such a short time my life changed totally, I gained freedom, wisdom and insight into why I do/did what I did. This is a wonderful experience – it works! A. Ashcroft, Brisbane

Having attended a Stress to Success Workshop run by Lynda, I came away with skills to keep me focused and motivated to future success. It was an interesting day with lots of fun and laughs. Kylie E. Mudgeeraba
