About me

Hello I'm Ruth and welcome to my counselling services. As a fully trained, professionally registered person-centred counsellor, I look forward to meeting you.  It can be difficult to embark on the process of finding the right counsellor to help you, especially if you are experiencing feelings of anxiety, low mood or overwhelm. It is important to find the right person for you, someone you can trust and feel comfortable to share your innermost feelings with.

Perhaps you have come to a point in your life where you are finding it difficult to manage your feelings. You may have experienced loss, relationship breakdown or a traumatic event. Maybe you are feeling lonely, confused or anxious and aspects of your life are proving difficult to manage. Having someone you feel safe and comfortable to talk to is important so that you do not feel that you must cope alone with your experiences.

Working together we can create a trusting therapeutic relationship, within which you can feel safe to share and explore the difficulties you are experiencing. I offer a compassionate, non- judgemental environment where you can untangle and process the challenges you face. Human relationships are at the centre of most of our human struggles, which is the reason that the healing strength of relationship is central to my practice as a therapist. My aim is to be fully present alongside you as witness, in an environment where you are wholly accepted and respected. I will be here to truly listen to and hear whatever you choose to talk about. I see therapy as a collaborative and non-directive journey that we share.

Our sessions together

We can work together face to face in my room in Seaford or by walking and talking in the green spaces around Seaford.

I also work online from anywhere in the UK.

Walk and talk therapy

Walking in the fresh air in the beautiful Sussex countryside may be beneficial to you for a number of reasons. Walking side by side can be calming in a way that can make it feel easier to express difficult feelings. Simply being outside and walking at your pace can help lift mood, reduce stress and feelings of anxiety.


Email me to arrange a free 20 minute telephone conversation to talk about what you are looking for and how I can help you.

Then if you decide that you would like to work with me, we can arrange a regular weekly session at a time that suits you. I offer face to face, walk and talk or zoom sessions. I charge £50 per 50 minute session.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
