Rykie Smith

Counselling / Arts Therapy
My practice is built on the deep conviction that we all deserve to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives. I believe this is possible despite our past experiences, circumstances, abilities, diagnoses or age.

I have therefore made it my mission to help clients and help them uncover the significance of their lives. My viewpoint is that it’s not enough to just alleviate clients’ suffering - I want to see them flourish.

My approach is different

I follow a progressive approach in the treatment of various mental and emotional challenges. Through utilising the latest advances in the fields of neuroscience and psychology, and creatively combining a range of evidence-based interventions designed specifically around each client’s needs and goals I ensure the best outcomes for my clients. This individualised approach empowers clients to step into a future of new possibilities, hope and meaning, and enables them to live the life they deserve.
