Ruth is a fully registered Clinical Psychologist with the HCPC. Through her experiences she has developed skills in using psychological theory to inform her assessment, formulation and therapy interventions, whilst holding you, the client at the centre of her work. The clients Ruth has worked with have had varied presentations across the lifespan, including severe and enduring mental health difficulties, attachment difficulties, depression, anxiety and experiences of trauma. Ruth has worked with clients on issues around their gender and sexuality, as well as their religious beliefs. This has required a sensitive and curious assessment of the client’s difficulties, to develop a collaborative and useful formulation, for the client and herself.


Ruth is competent in a number of models including CBT, ACT, CFT, and DBT. She feels that all these models offer something, but this very much depends on the client’s needs, and therefore she takes a person-centred approach to therapy. Ruth has developed further skills in working with trauma and has undertaken EMDR and CBTt training. It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and selecting the right therapist for you is important. Ruth offers a warm and creative approach to enable you to make positive changes through a collaborative and genuine therapeutic alliance. I look forward to working with you!
