“Wonderful speaker, very good style and very inclusive.” Annie 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 demeanour very easy to listen to.” Dave, Hungerford

“Excellent speaker – insightful, concise, clear.” Helen, Bristol

“The client examples brought the seminar to life and excellent presenter.” Kate, Winchester

“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

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

“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

“Excellent presentation and easy to understand and relate to. Ruth works in a similar way to me and I found it useful that the focus stayed on the topic. Any areas of the literature, that was forwarded prior to the seminar, that I was going to question were answered within the live presentation. I feel I have another worthwhile perspective to consider and possibly develop into areas of my work with clients. Thank you.”  Tom, Stroud
