Siobhain is an experienced therapist practising psychotherapy for almost 20 years in private practice. She’s also a qualified Mediator, Family therapist, qualified Supervisor and Author. Siobhain is a writer of articles and stories reflecting understanding from a psychoanalytical viewpoint and her experience is extensive.
In her talk from cancer to creation, Siobhain will tell us about how being diagnosed with cancer in January 2018 led to her successful private practice of 15 years going into suspended animation. She knew to survive that she needed something to change. Her assertiveness, self-care and self-awareness saved her life and ensured that despite her private practice now struggling she was able to start up her new venture Ayanay.
Siobhain founded Ayanay with co-founder, David Sleet. Ayanay was built upon the desire to create employment opportunities for therapists which they can earn through Ayanays membership program. Ayanay also provides elevated learning retreats across the UK where you can access exceptional CPD with time to relax, time to get to know peers and enjoy some of the most famous therapists and educators in the field of Psychology, e.g. an evening with Windy Dryden.
Siobhain has proven that determination and resilience can take you a long way, and in the last year she has arranged to interview Irvin D Yalom, in the final interviews he was to ever do. This interview is available in Siobhain’s Ayanay Facebook group.
Siobhain’s talk will certainly be an inspirational one which you won’t want to miss.
