Ruth Marshall MA Counselling 2012 Experienced Counsellor and Supervisor
Tyne And Wear
In general, people do not access counselling until they reach a point in their life where they feel desperate, that they cannot get any lower and need to talk to somebody before their life spirals out of control.
My own personal life experiences motivated me to study Counselling.
I became a Counsellor after completing a Master in Counselling at Sunderland university. I have been helping people both in private practice and various organisations since 2009. More recently, I qualified as a clinical Supervisor which means I help other counsellors with their client work.
I am a great believer in how we experience the world we live in as children and adolescents has a great impact on how we behave and handle situations as an adult. Much of the work I do spends time exploring how a clients past may impact what is going on in the present.
I work in a way whereby my client is the expert when it comes to what is right for them. I stay with them on what is often a difficult soul searching journey and act as a facilitator to help them make sense of their thoughts and feelings. I use creative interventions to help access deep seated thoughts which may help them understand their overwhelming sense of loss of who they are.
Our primary objective is to work together to help them 'delutter' their thinking and be the best they can be.
I am able to work with all areas where people experience anxiety and or depression.
I am particularly experienced in childhood trauma, adult trauma, relationship difficulties.
