Jo Ryan

Hi there,

My purpose is to assist my clients to discover and achieve their true potential and ultimately find the happiness we are all seeking. I strongly believe that we have everything that we need inside us to do this. However we have accumulated, fears and negative belief patterns over the years, that we need to identify and toss out in order to be the person we are meant to be.

I utilise mindfulness based techniques to assist clients to change their relationship with their thoughts and feelings and provide a supportive environment to facilitate personal growth and healing.

We practise mindfulness meditation within the sessions and clients learn a variety of tools that they take away to use when required to enhance and support their own development.

Each Friday, I hold mindfulness meditation sessions at Southern Yoga Centre. These are bulkbilled for those on health care plans or otherwise $20.

In our sessions, you will learn positive psychology and mindfulness techniques to assist you to:

۞ Manage difficult emotions such as depression, anxiety and stress more effectively.
۞ Experience a greater sense of emotional wellbeing and self awareness.
۞ Greater stability of emotions rather than the ups and downs we sometimes experience.
۞ Reduce the impact of negative thoughts.
۞ Improve your concentration.
۞ Improve your sleep.
۞ Find out what your strengths are and how to incorporate them into your life to create more positive emotions.
۞ Live in the present moment.
۞ Create a meaningful life guided by your values.

My commitment to my clients is 100% and I undertake to continue accumulating knowledge and skills to share with my clients.

I am a registered psychologist and qualified Life Coach with additional training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness Therapy and healing and holistic therapies.

I would love to assist you live the life that you want. Please feel free to email me or give me a call so that I can answer any questions that you may have or just to have a chat so that you can decide whether you wish to work with me.
