“I began therapy with Ruth following a three-month absence from work due to stress and depression. Everything I was trying to do at work was being hindered by my lack of self-belief. In social situations, the same problem prevented me from forming or maintaining relationships with others. I was avoiding situations and living under a cloud. After just six sessions my mindset had completely changed. It was as if someone had flicked a switch in my head allowing me to see both my value and my potential. My confidence has improved so much; I have emerged from under the cloud and feel as though I am now in total control of life. My relationships have improved and I am being effective and successful at work. This has honestly been one of the most positive and life-changing experiences I have ever had”
