Welcome

Ruth first became interested in how the mind works after completing various trainings in the Life Training and she is qualified to teach their Self Esteem Enhancement Course.

She is passionate about authenticity and derives great satisfaction from empowering her clients to achieve beneficial changes in their lives.

She trained at the London Marriage Guidance followed by nine years at the CCPE to gain diplomas in Advanced Transpersonal Psychotherapy, Supervision and Transpersonal Dreamwork.


She was awarded an MA in Transpersonal Psychotherapy, for her research paper on 'Retirement - A Time for Self Discovery' by the De Montfort University which she then presented at the BACP Research Conference in 2000.  She is registered with the UKCP.  She specialises in couples counselling.  She is particularly interested in the mind/body connection.  She trained in Emotional Freedom Technique and EmoTrance at the School of Energy Psychology, also in Autogenics and Bereavement Counselling.  She also has a special interest in Shadow work, which is bringing into the daylight those parts of ourselves that we hide, so that we can lead richer lives.

Ruth has trained up to Master Practitioner level of NLP. She is currently undergoing training in Imago Relationship Therapy and is also training to become a Life Coach.
        What is Counselling and Psychotherapy?
During times of challenging life events, many people become overwhelmed by their thoughts and emotions.  That is when it is beneficial to talk to a professional counsellor who is not emotionally involved in your life situation, to help you make sense of your predicament. 

The purpose of counselling is to create a regular safe space where you can explore your thoughts and feelings with someone who is trained to listen with attention and without judgement.  This strictly confidential therapeutic relationship supports you to make a journey of self discovery of your own inner resources for resolving your difficulties and easing your emotional pain.

        HYPNOTHERAPY
Ultimately all hypnosis is self hypnosis since the client is always in control and can never be made to do something he or she does not want to do.  This is why therapeutic hypnosis is not to be confused with stage hypnosis, where the only people who would get up on stage and dance with a broomstick for example, are those who like being outrageous anyway.

Hypnosis involves the induction of a trance-like state, enabling the client to suppress the critical factor part of their conscious mind and to allow the unconscious part of their mind to be revealed.

The hypnotherapist is then able to speak directly to the unconscious part of the client's mind, to re-programme negative thought patterns, thus enabling irrational fears, phobias, and physical or emotional pain to be overcome.
