Presenter and podcast host Shanie Ryan is a survivor of the 7/7 London bombings. Her experiences led to PTSD, anxiety and depression, but it took her a while to realise the changes in her behaviour were a result of that day. “I couldn’t relax, my behaviour was frantic, I always needed to be in control. Nothing I felt after that day felt natural. I was exhausting to deal with.” Her first experience with counselling didn’t help, because she wasn’t ready to do the work. A second attempt was the right fit. “If you haven’t clicked with your counsellor, it’s ok to try again with someone else.” She now presents her podcast Influence Me, talking to the personalities behind social media. She is now expecting her first baby and manages her wellbeing through exercise, nutrition, and setting weekly goals.
