BACP Registered Counsellor
My name is Ruth, I'm a qualified counsellor and work in private practice. I am passionate about therapy and the life-changing effect it can have for individuals.
People come to counselling for many reasons, whether that be; struggling to make sense of the world and how they fit in it, relationship breakdowns or addictive behaviours that are causing you a problem.
You may have reached a point in your life where you feel low, have no motivation or are stuck with a feeling of real sadness. Perhaps you have experienced a recent loss or overwhelming anxiety.
Whatever it is, I would like to support you and work together to find your own answers and perhaps a new perspective.
Counselling is an opportunity to gain greater self-awareness and gain some much-needed peace.
My approach is person-centred, which values the importance of our therapeutic relationship, in which I will support you to find your own answers.
I offer a safe space, where I ensure you feel heard and understood without feeling judged - maybe the first time in your life.
The first step of reaching out for support can be the hardest, which is why I make it as simple as possible with a no-obligation phone call to discuss your personal requirements.

The Invitation Counselling offers therapy for the following:
Depression & Anxiety
"I was always very sceptical about therapy. After a particular period in my life I thought, nothing ventured nothing gained and if me seeking help can benefit my children then it is worth a try.
I was proved wrong about all of my previous thoughts and feelings regarding therapy after the very first session with Ruth. She found ways of opening me up like I've never experienced before and I was expressing thoughts and feelings that I didn't even know were inside me.
I continue to see Ruth now and after every session I feel positive benefits of talking to her, she has hugely helped and continues to do so getting me through the toughest period in my life.
I can't recommend her highly enough."
