Ruth Proud COSRT Accredited, MBACP
I am an Accredited Sexual and Relationship Psychotherapist offering confidential, couple and individual therapy. I work empathetically with couples and individuals in exploring and finding solutions to difficulties they may be experiencing within their relationships and or sexual relationships.
I work with people to recognise their personal understanding of their sexuality and sexual health; with the view that issues have roots in psychology, emotion, the physical body, and a person’s history and culture. Ultimately my aim is to help people get to a place of relationships satisfaction, sexual health, happiness and wellbeing.
I also work with people experiencing relationship problems such as affairs, separation, frequent arguments, communication difficulties.
Further information about the background of sexual and relationship psychotherapy, along with details about me and the therapy I provide can be found on my website in addition to some frequently asked questions. If you would like further information please feel free to contact me directly by phone, email or via my website.
All sessions are currently by Zoom or phone.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists
