Ratna Dyer

Helping you to be who you want to be!

I will help you gain the tools you need to know yourself better, heal from past hurts, and manage life’s challenges moving forward.

Talking with me you will feel safe, heard, supported, and resourced. 


I can help you with:

  • Building confidence and authenticity
  • Traversing change
  • Managing anxiety
  • Trauma healing
  • Grief and loss
  • Stress management
  • Relationship issues
  • Building self awareness
  • Spiritual Awakening
  • Creativity


Be who you want to be!

I can assist you to build up an inner tool-kit so you can identify and change what isn’t working in your life and your relationships. With self awareness, you will be able to observe any anxiety, depression and confusion, and learn to use what life gives you to create transformation and fulfilment.

I offer you the experience of feeling deeply heard and respected. My genuine, non-judgmental guidance and support, will help you learn to receive, relax and trust.


You can:

  • Learn to enjoy life more!
  • Build more social connectedness
  • Change unhealthy patterns
  • Regulate and manage emotions
  • Increase creativity and productivity
  • Live with purpose and inner peace
  • Feel deeply connected and satisfied


Often the obstacles we face in life contain within them the very building blocks we need to form a stronger and more purposeful life. With help you can learn how to turn obstacles into opportunities. Counselling gently explores what appears to be holding you back i.e. limiting out-dated beliefs/traumas. When we learn how to identify how limiting beliefs form in your life, there is increased choice and ability to change and live your full potential.


Counselling Approach

I am trained in Psychosynthesis. I can help you to know yourself better; to differentiate and understand what is going on for you on all levels: body, feelings, mind and spirit. I will guide you to establish a grounded, effective way of being in practical everyday life. The process also supports you to grow spiritually. In confidential, caring and relational ways, I work within a holistic framework; understanding that we all have our own answers within. You will be given space, encouragement and guidance to explore and discover your own solutions.


Background and Experience

I have been working as a counsellor since 2010, both on the phones as a Lifeline volunteer, and face to face in private practice. I am a firm believer in walking your talk and that to be a good counsellor I need to look deeply at myself in an ongoing way. I have undertaken extensive work in spiritual practice and personal therapy, and have experience being in the clients’ seat. I can confidently guide and be alongside anyone walking their own healing path.
