Course Feedback

Course: Relational & Integrative Psychotherapy Training Online, 2022-23

“Ruth – you have provided such a vital place of safety, hope and welcome in your online training that I’ve needed so much in these last two turbulent years. I will look forward to any future opportunities to work alongside you and would be wonderful to share a hug in person sometime having felt so held by you even from a distance.”

Course: Psychotherapy of Obsession, Habitual Worrying & Repetitive, Fantasizing 2021

“Wonderful speaker, very good style and very inclusive.”
A. Rapstoff, Didcot

Certainly the topic of obsessive worrying is so prevalent, not just because of the pandemic, but because of the general and societal insecurity and seemingly overwhelming self-demands to be perfect in every way, which puts such a lot of pressure on people. Ruth is an excellent speaker and shows by example the value and efficacy of the truly supportive therapeutic alliance, which gives us such gentle guidance into seeing past the ‘headlines’ to the client’s story.
Louise, Ramsbury

“Really enjoyed the speaker and found her manner and demeanor very easy to listen to.

“Very accessible and well run, well held, good size group, excellent speaker. Great.”
Dave, Hungerford

“Ruth is a great speaker – so empathic and welcoming of questions. I really enjoyed the workshop.
Mel, Marlborough

“Good speaker. Ruth definitely has that therapeutic charisma – you trust what she says. Very accessible. Very grounded. Very human.”
Maria Siepe, Bristol

“I liked Ruth’s sharing of the ways in which she gently explores what a client would be feeling, remembering or doing if they weren’t worrying. I really liked her prosodic voice and “I am not the expert” approach to both her client work and also to the questions from her audience today. It made me feel valued and my offerings, significant. There was a very ambient, warm and inclusive feeling about this workshop which echoed the content of her relational approach. It felt much more personal than many other online workshops that I have been on. The organisation presented and hosted the workshop very competently.”
Sue Ivey, Hook

Course: The Narcissistic Dilemma 2020

“Great emphatic speaker. Sensitive and very attuned attentiveness and sensitivity”
Carol Bennett

“Engaging information / theory; clearly presented; good collective atmosphere”

“Ruth had a very engaging manner and huge confidence / knowledge of her subject”

“Very engaging speaker who conveyed her ideas empathically and beautifully”

“One of the best events I have been to!”
“Very good speaker, good pace, very informative”
“Really interesting, beautifully presented”
