Mary “Em” Ryan Online Only

Training & Accreditation

I am a fully insured, BACP registered, accredited holistic Counsellor,Psychotherapist and Integrative Supervisor with a Masters Degree and honorary PhD in Metaphysics. I have additional Diplomas and Certificates in Nature Therapy/Medicine Wheel, Energy Therapy and Sound Therapy.


My therapeutic approach is similarly eclectic and empathic. I  meet my clients where they are, adapting to their different personalities in order to tailor the session to their individual needs. I often employ a blend of scientific and energetic techniques from CBT, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Mindfulness, and Celtic Shamanism with Person Centred being at the heart of my practice.

I believe the client is the expert in their own lives, and their journey can be facilitated by asking the right questions that can help them see their story from another point of view. It can be a difficult decision trying to find a therapist that is the right fit for you, based on a picture or a few paragraphs, whether a person can hear your story without judgement. 

In our first session we initially discuss confidentiality, ethical practice, GDPR and basic contact information and then we begin to explore the issues that you bravely brought to therapy. At all times you should feel safe, secure, respected and heard in a completely confidential environment. Therapy can be a rewarding place where you can be accepted as you are.

Experience & Areas of Interest

My interests are diverse. I am aligned with LGBTQIA2S+ people, people facing life transitions, and neurodivergent people. It is my life’s purpose to aid people through the nuanced difficulties that come with trying to navigate these things through their therapeutic journey. I have been working with children, teens and adults for over 20 years and have a wealth of experience working with people from many different cultures and backgrounds, presenting with a wide spectrum of issues, including the following:

Anxiety and Panic, Depression, Grief and Loss, Stress and Trauma, Loneliness, Family and Relationship Issues, Bullying, Low Self Esteem/Confidence, Addiction, Self Harm, Personal Development and much more.

I provide a confidential, non judgemental space in which clients can talk about their problems and issues safely. This is a healing process which enables clients to gain self awareness, grow, learn new skills and behaviours and improve their lives. My aim is to empower clients to build resilience, gain coping skills and reach their full potential in life. All issues are dealt with sensitivity and confidentially.

I also offer Clinical Integrative Supervision using a blend of the Cyclical, Developmental and 7 Eyed Models of Supervision.
