About me

I'm Ruth, a CBT and REBT therapist helping clients UK wide, online, or face to face in my therapy room.

I integrate a variety of alternative therapies such as REBT, compassion focused therapy, acceptance focused and CT Therapy, tailoring to each individual's personal problems and situations. I specialise in guidance through general anxiety, anxiety at work, OCD, relationship issues, low self esteem, health anxiety, depression and low mood.

My approach is a collaborative journey, introducing cognitive tools to help manage your unhealthy negative emotions and thoughts, resulting in a calmer and happier life.

For those who prefer simply talking, I am an experienced counsellor and life coach.

As a person who has battled through my own anxiety and depression, I can relate to you and I am open about how I tackled my anxiety through CBT. And I can now help others through their emotional problems with empathy and familiarity. Together we will work through your problems, showing you the tools to get by and ultimately become your own therapist!

I also work with companies to provide mental health support for employees.

I offer an initial free 15 minute phone call before booking in sessions. 

Sessions are £70 face to face and £60 online.

I charge just £45-£50 for our first consultation session.
