Ruth Waterhouse MBACP
Counselling is coming to terms with emotions and feelings that you are experiencing. It promotes understanding for the individuals and enables them to have the power to alter their lives.
I am a warm, empathic and sincere person, I consider myself to be a people person and enjoy the company of others. I have a firm but gentle approach to counselling and I function well with a wide array of issues. I specialise in bereavement and loss.
I offer counselling in a serene environment, a purpose built garden room. I offer a non-judgemental and confidential environment for you to explore your feelings.
I offer this service in a safe environment, which will help you share your feelings and experiences.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Diploma in Counselling, and I am a member of the BACP. I attend regular supervision.
I have 13 years experience of working with bereaved adults on a one to one basis. I have worked with bereaved individuals in a group setting who have suffered losses due to cancer. I have worked in areas other than bereavement, I have supported young people aged 17 - 25 and worked on a self-employed basis in a local primary school.
