    About Ruth

    Ruth teaches couples how to resurrect love and bring passion and intimacy back into their lives. For those who have never experienced it, she shows them how to achieve it.

    Through extensive training and decades of experience as a sexologist, Ruth is able to address complex and sensitive sex-related issues with great skill. She is a member of the Society of Australian Sexologists (SAS) and regularly attends seminars, workshops, forums and professional development meetings in order to remain abreast of the latest clinical and research findings in the field of sex and sexuality.

    Ruth’s therapeutic style, developed over decades of clinical practice, reflects a carefully crafted balance of sensitivity, practicality, fun and no-holds-barred truth. Ruth teaches her clients how to communicate differently, spontaneously and talk about their needs that are not being met. A strong believer that knowledge is power, Ruth specialises in teaching her clients about themselves, why they behave the way they do, and how they affect each other. Ruth helps her clients to develop the tools they need to change their lives.

    How many years counselling experience do you have?

    Over 30 years

    What are three strengths you have as a Psychologist/Counsellor?
    1. My acquired knowledge and understanding of human behaviour through life experience and learning
    2. My caring of my clients
    3. My sense of humour, which I believe is essential in our work, especially in dealing with sexual issues
    What is the most satisfying and fulfilling part of the work you do?

    When my clients thank me for helping them change their lives for the better, and saving many relationships.

    What’s an example of a couple you have helped the most?

    The clients were experiencing relationship problems after being together for 22 years, culminating in a betrayal in the relationship. During counselling they learned a lot about themselves and what they were doing to sabotage their relationship. Now they are back on track and stronger than ever.
