Hello, my name is Ryan.

Counselling is a deeply personal process and with that in mind I understand that finding a counsellor that's right for you is extremely important, it also can be a daunting process to take your first steps into.

I am a fully qualified counsellor based in the Nottinghamshire area. I offer accessible online support via video messaging and email. In order to help and support you I aim to focus on you and give you the space to feel secure, held and genuinely heard by offering you the time to explore any thoughts or feelings that might be troubling you. I aim to listen without judgement and work with you and your needs by offering a space for you to explore any concerns in confidence.

How I work

I am trained in person-centred and solution-focused counselling, what that means is that i'll work with you to create a space where you can establish your goals and work on solutions. My work is relational, I focus on the here-and-now and on moving forward. I won't tell you what to do as I believe in the power of the individual and in promoting your own strengths and autonomy. I have experience of working with various mental and emotional issues such as anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, relationship breakdown and abuse. I have training in working with grief and loss, trauma, sex and sexuality and addictions. I have a special interest in working with social anxiety disorder, health anxiety and work related stress.
