Following over 15 years working with the same therapist, I was referred to Lynn by Dr Alberto Pertusa at the end of 2020 following a period of instability. It was a difficult time for everyone due to Covid-19 and being able to see Lynn virtually was a perfect option for me. We clicked immediately and I felt that Lynn understood me and why I was seeking help. Lynn's approach made me feel at ease and her knowledge and advice were a great help from my very first session. But Lynn doesn't stop at the end of the session, she was sending me information and things that I might find interesting even in between our appointments which was greatly appreciated and also shows how much she cares about her patients.

Where do I begin to describe Alex and what she has done for me. When my daughter was going through her difficult journey to recovery, she was not only there for her in every sense of the word, but she was there for me too. Without her support, her encouragement, and frankly the therapy she gave me, I would not have had the know how nor the strength to help my daughter on her journey. Alex is insightful, extremely effective, most caring and empathetic. Instantly, upon meeting her you know that you are in the best of hands. As a family, we will forever be grateful that our paths crossed and she will forever be in our hearts.

“As my therapist I found Lynn to be an excellent listener, highly empathetic and very incisive in her analysis of my situation. She brought a light and warm touch to the process whilst also being appropriately challenging and she used a wide array of tools including art therapy very effectively. She was sensitive and kind to me with an engaging sense of humour and at the same time very committed to helping me to achieve a constructive and positive outcome. I found the therapy to be enormously helpful and to have had a very positive impact on my life.”

Lynn has provided a safe space that has always had the foundation of trust from day 1. Lynn has equipped with many tools and resources to help me manage my anxiety in ways I wouldn’t have thought possible. Lynn guided me towards identifying what my unhealthy thinking patterns were and taught me how to tackle these and correct and change them to healthier thinking patterns. Lynn helped me rebuild my brain in the best way possible. Lynn has been there to support me out of sessions aswell. I am grateful for the work we have done together and without Lynn, I would not be in the position I am today. Thank you Lynn for providing safety, trust and always being there.

I cannot think of a practitioner more qualified than Alexandra Madureira. Her insights on behavioral psychology and her mastery of multiple approaches to therapy make her the most talented, effective, and inspiring professional I ever had the chance to receive treatment from. Her ability to amalgamate complex information and package it in an accessible and inspirational way is second to none. I know from experience that she embraces even the most challenging of situations with empathy and humor, possessing the rare ability to communicate across cultures and generations with a high level of understanding and sensitivity.

"I can't say enough good things about Lynn! I had a complex presentation of different mental health problems, and I had already worked with several other therapists, with limited success. Lynn carefully grew to understand my difficulties and symptoms, and planned therapy in ways that suited me. Her therapy and guidance has brought me a long way, and I always turn to her first when I have difficult situations to deal with."

“I spent six months as an inpatient at a clinic at which Lynn was employed as a clinical psychologist. Whilst Lynn was not directly my psychologist she was heavily involved in my day to day life at the clinic.I feel truly blessed that Lynn was put on my path to recovery. She was a constant reassuring presence over the course of my stay at the clinic, always insightful and understanding, infectiously enthusiastic and deeply committed to the recovery of every patient at the clinic. Lynn radiates a positive energy that one cannot help but be influenced by, my best subconscious efforts to remain comfortably miserable were futile!”

I was lucky enough to have a world-class mentor in Alex who I trust wholeheartedly and someone that I have been seeking for my whole life. Alex has worked through things with me where others would simply shy away or change the subject and I am looking forward to continuing our work together in the future.

Meeting Alex was one of these things that made me believe in the good of the universe. I found it really difficult to begin writing this because nothing I say will suffice in expressing just how amazing of a therapist she is. I’ve worked with hundreds of therapists, and none of them even compare to the value of the work I do with Alex. It is not just that she’s skilled, talented and extremely knowledgeable, it is also that she is able to accept me completely in a way that brings out my truest self. I’ve been working with Alex for over 5 years, and she has stuck with me through it all, no matter how long it took me to accept things that were as clear as water, she always rode the waves with me patiently. I’d finally like to say that I consider myself so very lucky that I crossed paths with someone so raw, pure and human like Alex, because it not only made me believe in the good in the universe, but more importantly it made me believe in the good in myself.

“Our adult son had a very challenging psychiatric condition, including very severe depression and anxiety. He was completely unable to cope with life and was despairing of finding someone who could help him get better. Lynn has been his psychotherapist for over a year now and, in liaison with psychiatrists, has transformed him into someone who can face the world again. Lynn is highly skilled and extremely kind, supportive and empathetic. She has always been ready to support our son in her calm and caring way, however challenging his condition. She is excellent at tailoring her approach to the particular needs of her client. Our son was happy for Lynn to maintain contact with us directly and she has been excellent at keeping us updated on his condition, and at liaising with us and with his psychiatrists. She has made us feel part of her team and the results she has achieved are wonderful.”
