Bury St. Edmunds Coordinator – Linda Barbour

Linda bounded into a BWN event and fell in love with The BWN that much that Linda decided to get involved in the Suffolk BWN in Autumn 2016.

BWN are proud to be working in partnership with Age UK Suffolk as our chosen charity for the Bury St. Edmunds area.  Age UK Suffolk premises at Saxon House, 7 Hillside, Bury St. Edmunds will be the venue.  Parking outside the office is limited but there is off road parking.

Linda says ” I specialise in helping people who feel stressed or unhappy, to interrupt and reset old patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving. When you know how to do this you move on quickly. Stop worrying, feel as successful on the inside as you look on the outside and enjoy each day. I intentionally use language that is clear and simple. The methods and tools however are powerful, sophisticated and based on up to date scientific research. Understand your past. Enjoy the present. Face the future with calmness and confidence. Get long lasting results.”

If you would like to keep up to date on Linda’s event then email Linda here

Linda likes to guarantee everyone to the BWN a warm welcome so look out for her face
