Annie Ryan MBACP Adv Couns Dip
Hello I'm Annie,
Ive always been drawn to helping others which is why I became a Counsellor, I qualified 10 years ago and work in Private Practice. I deal with all aspects of work Clients' bring and specialise in Adult Survivors of Child Rape and Sexual Abuse both inside and outside of the family unit. I work with MIND in Sevenoaks as a volunteer Counsellor working with many different issues including mental health.
Do you feel overwhelmed with aspects of your life at the moment? Are you experiencing difficulties in your relationship? Are you feeling unsupported by those close to you? Would you like to change your outlook and become more positive? I would welcome the opportunity to provide you with support at this time. Counselling can seem daunting but it can be a very positive and uplifting experience, allowing you to feel back in control of your life once more.
I provide a comfortable and confidential space, conveying warmth and acceptance to you without judgement. Working together we can resolve issues you want to bring, past or present, working at a pace that entirely suits you. The chance for you to be able to speak freely and be heard completely can be invaluable.
I work with adults on an individual basis, long or short term work and I offer weekly and fortnightly sessions. Early morning, daytime and evening appointments.
If you would like to make an appointment please call or email me. I look forward to meeting you.
