Hi! I'm Ryno.
I was born in the sunny Southern African country of Namibia, but I now live in Milton Keynes, United Kingdom with my gorgeous cat Rosie after I moved here in 2002.
In my earlier life I worked as a finance administrator, an insurance broker, I studied Hotel Management and worked as a Hotel Management Trainee, Banqueting and Conference Manager as well as Event Manager. Most recently I worked as software system analyst and specialist.
Apart from being a trained clinical therapist, I am passionate about our energy reality and approaching our existence holistically. Our past experiences (whether you remember them or not) influence us, along with more subtle processes like vibrations of numbers (if you are into numerology), planets and stars (if you are into astrology), what you brought into this life (if you are into past lives) and what you have agreed with your soul to experience and remember in this life.
My yearning for something deeper took me an on a journey that started with meditation and quickly led to a very keen interest in energy, healing and a strong connection to the magical energy of our planet and universe, and the beautiful energy beings we all are.
In the late 90s while I was doing some spiritual studies on meditation, energy work and transformation, I was told by my very insightful teacher that I am a "bridge walker". I was told that means I will guide others across the bridge into other areas of understanding and being. I did not really get it at that stage, but I see it clearly now.
The bridge is a metaphor for the time that has elapsed between the past (or past life) and the present, and between the present and what we are planning for the future. It symbolises the process we follow between where we were, where we are now, and where we want to be. The bridge is the healing between past hurts and future empowerment. The bridge is the journey between what we know consciously, right now, and the more sacred spirituality that our soul yearns for. It is a metaphor for growth, be it in mental or emotional health, personal development or a deeper spiritual understanding, or being. The bridge can be sturdy with strong structures, or it can feel a bit more like a rope bridge, sometimes with planks missing and gaps on the side! Can you identify bridges like this in your life?
Over the years I formalised my training into a variety of therapeutic processes including Reiki Energy Healing, basic Rogerian Counselling skills, Advanced Stress Management, Clinical Hypnotherapy, Clinical Hypnosis and Psychotherapy, Advanced Hypno-analysis, SymbioDynamics® Coaching, Brainworking Recursive Therapy (BWRT®), Meditation, Numerology, Past Life Regression Therapy and more, and most recently I have started studying Vedic Astrology and started practicing yoga.
After I was made redundant in my part time corporate career as a systems specialist and analyst, I went from being on the verge of perpetual burnout, with no time to spare, to being a full time practitioner utilising a blend of the amazing techniques which I have been so privileged to have studied over the years, to help others relax, heal and transform on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level.
