About me

About Our Work Together

My work is integrative and creative using various approaches to suit you, including relaxation,  confidence and relationship building, CBT and healthy coping strategies within a safe space for you to just be yourself, at your own pace without judgement or pressure.

Uncomfortable events, thoughts, feelings and behaviour may be troubling you. We will work together to identify patterns, recognise triggers and establish the conditions and strategies to move forward safely and healthily


What differs in couples work is the focus on the relationship between the two of you and how to take that relationship forwards, in equality and with a joint purpose. No bias or siding with one or the other exists. Both of you, as individuals, have a right to be heard and as a couple, a right to find stability without oppression, blame, fault or hurt.


Confidence building is at the core of my work with young people. Empowering healthy control and communication and social interaction, for a happier experience whether at school, home or with peer groups.

REWIND TRAUMA THERAPY 'Closure without Disclosure'.

REWIND therapy is a non invasive, quick, effective treatment for PTSD, trauma and phobias. My training was at Birmingham University with the founder of REWIND Dr David Muss.

REWIND therapy is different from other trauma therapies because no details are disclosed to the therapist. The treatment is known as "closure without disclosure"

For many people there are benefits of not disclosing details of trauma. This can minimise the risk of being re-traumatised following such experiences as rape, sexual abuse, violence, road traffic accidents or the witnessing of traumatic events.


I am a member of the British Association of Performance Artists Medicine and our work will help to build self confidence, reduce performance anxiety, improve body awareness and performance strategies for a healthier sense of self within your art.


'Life changing. I have my whole self back from a very long time ago'. Testimonial S.C.

'The REWIND completely transformed mine and my family's life. I cannot begin to explain how I could begin again. Thank you'. Testimonial D.R.

'The work has been remarkable. To allow me to be me. I have felt and shown and had my emotions witnessed for the first time'. Testimonial L.M.

'Ruth I’d just like to say thanks for all that you’ve done for me. I found you very professional, welcoming and approachable which made me very comfortable during our sessions, which is ultimately why I think I had such a positive experience'. Testimonial R.E.

Perhaps you want to cry but don't know why
or can't because you don't know how
or shouldn't, because you were told it was wrong
and never did, because you had to be strong
and mustn't, because it is all your fault.

It's not your fault.
