Ruth Clarke, Psychotherapist and Supervisor. Reg UKCP/BACP

About me

I am a qualified and experienced psychotherapist. I have over 15yrs experience working with individuals, couples, and families both in the NHS and privately. I also provide professional supervision to psychotherapists and trainee psychotherapists.

I help people to explore the issues that bring them to therapy. It is through this process that change can be effected. The process can be short-term and target-focused, or longer-term and more exploratory. I tailor my approach to the individual.

There are no limits to what can be discussed in therapy. What is important is that the therapy offers an individual the possibility of looking at aspects of themselves and their lives that have hitherto been difficult to look at. In therapy the process of self-examination and change is made possible by the therapeutic relationship: the all-important relationship that develops between a therapist and a client.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have an MSc is Systemic Psychotherapy and am a registered member of UKCP and BACP. I have also trained in EMDR.

I specialize in complex trauma conditions such as PTSD and Dissociative Disorders. This work generally deals with past traumatic experiences. However, I also work with clients experiencing a wide range of other difficulties, including anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, work-related problems, sexual identity difficulties, and low self-esteem.

As a systemic psychotherapist I work with couples and families, as well as with individuals. I have worked in the NHS as part of CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service) and in a tier 4 in-patient psychiatric service. I now have a private practice and work with any issues that an individual is troubled by.
