    How many years counselling experience do you have?

    20+

    What are three strengths you have as a Psychologist/Counsellor?

    1) Committed to helping my clients solve their problems, make their own decisions and empower themselves
    2) friendly and supportive
    3) I focus on solutions and moving forward whilst respecting that it is also important to reflect on and understand our history and patterns that get us into relationship problems

    What is the most satisfying and fulfilling part of the work you do?

    Getting to know and understand my clients worlds and perspectives.

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

    A couple who had experienced conflict in their homes as children and were repeating the same pattern themselves. They had escalating arguments and things always became so heated that they couldn’t think clearly enough to problem solve together. We focused on communication skills in the area of problem solving and I coached them in these skills in sessions and they practiced outside the sessions and had great results. They could for the first time resolve tricky issues together

    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.
