She is Co-ordinator and Senior Lecturer for the Certificate in Counselling Skills and facilitates the PPD Groups in Years 3 and 4 of the Humanistic BA (Hons).

In her counselling practice Ruth specialises in trauma related issues combining Humanistic Counselling, Arts and Psychotherapy alongside Somatic Experiencing, which teaches simple, powerful strategies that mobilise the body`s innate self-healing systems.

Ruth underpins her work with trauma (PTSD & Complex PTSD) with the Comprehensive Resource Model (Lisa Schwarz) to enable clients to find their way back to their core “Be-ing” and to help them “re-member” their true, authentic, loving nature.
