Ms Penny Tyndale Hardy

Member Status: Accredited

Member No: NCS19-07672

Location: Stromness

I hold a Professional Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling (Prof Dip Psy C Level 5) and a Chrysalis Level 3 Certificate in Hypnotherapy and Counselling Skills. I also hold a Human Givens Diploma in Psychotherapy and am a registered member of the Human Givens Institute.
I work online or face to face in my therapy room just outside Stromness, Orkney.
In my practice I offer psychotherapy, hypnotherapy and/or coaching – or a combination of these. Our initial appointment will be a chance to decide which of these you would like to explore and we will talk about what sessions will look like and what to expect. My approach is generally humanistic – which is to say client-led – and at no point will you be asked to talk about anything you don’t want to. As well as working with adults, I have a background in secondary school teaching and have worked as a school counsellor so also work with young people of secondary school age upwards.
I can offer psychotherapy and/or hypnotherapy for specific issues such as stress, anxiety, self-esteem, phobias, trauma, goal achievement (such as exercise, diet, giving speeches etc), general relaxation and similar. As a coach (ILM Level 5 Certificate in Coaching and Mentoring) I offer professional and personal coaching, covering personal growth, life balance, goal achievement, stress management and similar. Hypnotherapy is only available in face-to-face appointments, while shorter guided imagery and relaxation is available as part of our work over video call.
I use an online appointments system called Pragmatic Tracker for keeping my appointment details and sending reminders etc out, which keeps things secure and GDPR compliant. Once we have agreed an appointment, they will send you an email verification to check their messages don't go to spam and then a day or so before the appointment they will send an automatic appointment reminder and any pre-session questionnaires or information.
