About me

Hi my name's Ruth and I'm a MBACP registered integrated counsellor and Psychotherapist.  I offer a safe space for you to explore any issues, worries or concerns you may have, its easy for issues to weigh heavy on our minds and start to overwhelm, causing anxiety and depression, especially if they stop us sleeping and getting rest.  As an integrated counsellor I don’t believe one model of counselling fits all, as everyone is an individual I feel therapy should be individually tailored to each client. Having a safe space, with an impartial, non-judgemental counsellor to confide in, can help us unpack what is happening for us.

You are the expert on you and the process of counselling can provide space, tools and understanding about why you behave and feel a certain way.  It can help to confront issues, no matter how big or small they may feel to you. The support of counselling sessions provides the courage to process feelings and emotions (which may have been buried) in order to better recognise and release them, allowing a healing process to take place and to become more conscious of patterns of behaviour, enabling change to ultimately live the life you desire. 

I welcome short and longer term clients and have worked with people suffering from self esteem issues, PTSD, anxiety, relationship problems including emotion and/or physical abuse, personality disorders, depression, abuse including historic child sexual abuse. I feel the therapeutic relationship between counsellor and client is the integral part to therapy.

Member organisations


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.
