About Our Work Together
Our work will be integrative which may include relaxation, body awareness, when sometimes we become disconnected from our bodies, confidence and relationship building, healthy coping strategies and maybe a little healthy assertiveness.
Difficult events, thoughts, feelings and behaviour may be troubling you. We will work together for you to just be yourself, recognise your innate resources and power, at your own pace, without judgement or pressure. We will identify patterns, recognise triggers and establish the calm and clear conditions to move forward safely and healthily,
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.
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.
I am a member of the British Association of Performance Artists Medicine and EQUITY Therapists Directory. 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.

'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.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
