Healing and curiosity drew Andy Ryan into the field of psychotherapy.
As I emerged from the chaos of drug and alcohol addiction, I felt a curiosity to understand what had happened and was happening in my life. I was offered therapy as part of my treatment and wanted to know more.
It became obvious that training to be a psychotherapist was a path that I wanted to walk for both personal and professional development. The training helped me make sense of so much in my life. There is a community centred around training – conferences, literature and more – that keeps the fire stoked with continued opportunities to develop in many subjects within the field. I’m still developing and I feel more connected with who I am and the world around me than I could have ever imagined.
