Kerry Ryan. MBACP, Dip Couns
Hello and thank you for visiting my page. My name is Kerry and I am a fully qualified and MBACP registered Counsellor based in Rodney Street Liverpool. I work in a person centered way with my clients. Meaning, I work alongside my clients in a reflective and supportive manner, enabling them to improve their lives.
Rather than to give advice or direct you according to my ideas or opinion, I will facilitate you on a journey of finding your own truth, your own answers for yourself. I believe you know what's best for you, I will be there to help and encourage you to find the answers and solutions I believe you already hold inside. Whether your reasons for considering counselling are to help you process a loss or bereavement, perhaps you are suffering with anxiety or self esteem issues, maybe you are feeling sad but not sure why or feelings of loneliness are troubling you, or maybe you are experiencing relationship issues or family issues. Whatever area of your life you feel is holding you back be sure that we can work together to make positive improvements. We can work through these issues, in a supportive and non-judgemental environment.
For those who have never experienced a counselling session before, the idea can sometimes feel daunting or even intimidating. I have sat on the opposite chair, I have been the client myself so I understand fully the apprehension one can feel before starting that first session. Be reassured that I work in an informal and friendly manner, doing my up most to make my clients feel safe and respected. I work hard to ensure the sessions do not feel clinical, but rather more natural and warm.
I offer a safe place for you to be free to express yourself and your emotions, safe in the knowledge you will not be judged and our sessions are confidential. Though at times the work we do together may feel challenging, I will always treat you with respect, honesty and compassion. I am on your side and therefore I want you to get as much as possible from our sessions. Ultimately I want the best for you and that will always be at the core of our work together.
Our sessions will take place in a beautiful, recently fully renovated space on Rodney Street. The large, spacious rooms are decorated with modern and comfortable furniture. Enabling my clients to feel comfortable and relaxed.
I also work as a School Counsellor. Currently working in a School with primary aged children, helping them with a variety of issues. This is a role I really cherish and feel honoured to have. By adapting my style accordingly, I am able to work effectively with both children and adults
If you have any questions about what counselling entails or would just like an informal chat to discuss the possibility of working together, please feel free to call me or send a message. I've also just recently started an Instagram page 'kerryryancounselling' if you would like to have a look on there. I will be updating it regularly moving forward.
