Counselling is a process of shedding light on how we live, on our problems and on our relationships. Counselling is not an answer in and of itself to life's problems but it is a means to finding your own answers to them.
Counselling can help if:
you are experiencing difficulties in living related to anxiety, low mood or stress
you would like to understand yourself and your relationships better
you are dealing with grief and loss
you would like to to find greater meaning in life
you would like to change troubling behaviours or habits
Me and My Practice
My name is Ruth Roberts. I am a Senior Accredited member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and I have been seeing clients for 17 years. I am also a qualified supervisor and lecturer in counselling and psychotherapy. I have substantial experience of working with clients from all walks of life. I specialise in working with students and can help you find a meaningful direction in life. I also have experience of working with clients with chronic illness and workplace stress.
I aim to help clients to feel valued and heard and I believe a lot can be accomplished by skilful listening and responding to clients. As a result, I rarely give direct advice although I might signpost clients to other sources of help and to psycho-educative and well-being resources.
My approach to counselling is integrative with a strong foundation in Person Centred and Experiential therapy. I have also completed trainings in Mindfulness, CBT skills and working with eating disorders.
I currently have limited spaces available for online sessions with clients and supervisees.
I am currently working online via Zoom.
