About Ruth

I am an experienced BACP Registered Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist working in person in Southsea and Petersfield in Hampshire and online across the UK.

As an integrative therapist I work intuitively and collaboratively, drawing on a range of therapeutic interventions best suited to you. These include traditional talking therapies such as psychodynamic and person centred approaches but also mindfulness and psycho-education. My practice is trauma informed and I also work somatically (with the body) and creatively using sand tray, art or drawing therapy which can help to process past experiences and gain a greater understanding of behaviours, thoughts and feelings in the present.

I am experienced in helping clients with anxiety and depression, low self-esteem, boarding school syndrome, relationship and attachment issues, trauma, including early childhood developmental trauma.

If you are struggling with your relationships, feeling depressed, anxious or sad, or have difficult feelings about yourself and are finding it hard to enjoy life, I would like to help. Perhaps you keep repeating a pattern of behaviour that is difficult for you, or perhaps just want to grow, change and develop. Whatever your reason for seeking help, I believe that we all have the ability with the support of the therapeutic relationship, to access our own healing power and find our way back to who we truly are, so we can feel more empowered, resourced and enabled to fulfil our true potential.
