About me and my therapy practice

Hello, I’m Ruth, I’m afraid I’m full at the moment  

I'm a Relate-trained Relationship Therapist.

If you’re reading this, you may be feeling unhappy on your own, or wanting your relationship to be different. You may be in a couple, wondering if you can rediscover the relationship you once had with your partner, or to find a different way forward.You may be an individual, trying to cope with the loss of a relationship, or wanting to be able to find lasting love. Perhaps there are relationships with your children or wider family, with friends or people at work that upset you; or you are unhappy with your own behaviour. 

If you long for a healthy relationship that doesn’t leave you feeling hurt, you are not alone. Many individuals and couples struggle with difficulties which can bring pain: leaving them feeling exhausted and stressed. After all, we’re not given a relationship manual when we’re born.

I will listen carefully and will not judge you. I do not take sides. I am genuinely passionate about helping my clients move out of destructive and painful patterns of relating with each other, whether they are with partners, family, friends, or at work.

I believe that we are all doing our best in situations, even when our behaviour can seem destructive or self-sabotaging. My role is to help you explore and develop preferred ways of behaving and living your life. I really care about all of my clients and tailor my approach to suit each person’s/ couple’s unique needs. I do understand that it can be daunting making that first contact, but in some ways, that's the hardest part. You may wish to have one session, a few, or leave it open. It's up to you.

All couples or individuals are welcome- any age, culture, religion, LGBTQIA+ or physical ability. I am anti racist.
