About

Hello, I work close to nature, in a private and quiet garden cabin and my dog Bertie is with me if you would like him to be. I want to support you to be OK with yourself. Some of the following questions we might over the time we work together: What are your needs and are you able to express them? What you would like to change in your life and how would life be different after counselling? How do you see yourself and the world and how do you feel you are seen? I like to work creatively, using therapeutic tools to help you connect to different parts of yourself such as sandtray, two chair work, and IFS; exploring what works for you.
I aim to offer a safe space for you to be yourself. I use mindfulness and visualizations to support getting in touch with how you are feeling and where your feelings are located, we would do this in a gentle way, working at your pace. I work with individuals and couples.
Counselling for me is about empowerment which comes from self-compassion, acceptance and kindness. In our time together I would aim to support you to develop a positive sense of self regard and an ongoing connection to self kindness so you continue to develop to be the most authentic and enlivened version of who you are. We can work face to face or online.

Ruth Grier's Groups

Women identifying therapy group

The idea is to offer a safe and nurturing weekly therapeutic space for people to share and feel part of a community. A space where you feel you can learn and act as a mirror for different people in the group. I am limiting the size of the group to 6 people (excluding myself and Bertie).
