My name is Sophie Ryan and I'm online counsellor that helps people to heal and transform their lives. Whether you're suffering from trauma, struggling to make an important decision, or maybe looking to take your life to the next level, I can help you get out of your own way. I believe everyone has the ability to heal themselves with appropriate guidance and support, and that all men and women have the power to achieve self-actualisation (realise fully one's potential), via expansion of consciousness.
Using a holistic approach, I utilise my knowledge and experience in a variety of areas such as counselling, spirituality, psychology, and natural health. I can help you learn coping mechanisms, adopt a healthier mindset and lifestyle, feel empowered to make positive changes in your life, gain a sense of direction, and much more.
Collaborate with me and find a deeper sense of connection to yourself and the universe. Feel love instead of pain. Feel hope instead of despair. Feel excitement instead of fear. The power is within you. Let me guide the way.
