Ruth Yudkin PGDip, UKCP registered
I am psychotherapist with over 13 years' experience, offering short- and long-term psychotherapy to individuals, couples and families.
Counselling and psychotherapy can give you the opportunity to talk, listen, and be listened to, in safety and in confidence. It is a chance to express how you feel, say the unsayable, and be supported in taking these risks. Whether you come on your own, as part of a couple, or as a family, you will be given the space to understand more about yourself, and explore new ways of relating to others.
Warmth and compassion are central to my work, alongside a rigorous attention to the detail of what you bring. I offer a place where you will be supported without being given advice, and challenged without being judged.
