Leo Ryan has been a counsellor for the major part of his working life. Early in his career he became aware of the number of female clients who were being abused by their husbands/partners/boyfriends and was determined to help.
His first book, An Extraordinary Relationship, highlights his conclusions gained from years of counselling, showing it is possible for most people to bring on the changes needed to have a great relationship.
Married for over thirty years, Leo has a son and daughter, his wife, Gunilla, has a daughter, and they have seven grandchildren. Leo gained a social work degree from Flinders University, has worked in Adelaide and Canberra, and now lives in Sydney.
