Sarah-Jane Ryan

Psychological Counsellor

*Currently online sessions only* My approach to therapy centres on creating a trusting and collaborative relationship in which you can achieve greater self-knowledge and devise more effective ways of moving forward.


I arrived in Berlin in 2017 and have enjoyed working in private practice with English-speaking individuals from a variety of backgrounds and cultures.

My Approach

Working in an Integrative and Humanistic way, I draw on different approaches based on what you wish to work on. These include elements of Person-Centred, Psychodynamic and Gestalt theory.

In the sessions you will be encouraged to explore your thoughts and feelings - and how you relate to them - and your life both past and present.
We will work together to identify unhelpful beliefs (likely developed a long time ago) that may still exert an influence.
An aim of the process is to achieve a greater sense of choice and control in your life.
