“Seeing Ruth ahead of the birth of my second child is easily one of the best things I have ever done. After a fairly awful first birth, I was determined to have a homebirth for my second and to do without any pain relief. With a big thanks to Ruth I was fully dilated before I even felt labour pains and my baby was born at home with just gas and air in the active stage.
Ruth took time to understand my fears, and the root of them and taught me techniques to help me overcome them. Everything was personalised to me and if one technique didn’t work, or wasn’t my cup of tea, there was another to try.
The techniques I was taught, whilst being for birth, have helped me overcome other fears and cope with difficult situations, just one example being that I recently held a tarantula (and enjoyed it), despite having a lifelong fear of spiders. I still use the techniques in many stressful situations to keep myself calm.
Ruth is very honest and open about what could and could not be achieved and is a lovely person; there was no judgement with anything I said, just a genuine desire to help.
I’m looking forward to seeing Ruth again for some of the other services she offers.”
I have suffered with Anxiety for several years and was never brave enough before to speak to anyone about it. When I was at my lowest point, I googled and found Ruth. I nearly cancelled my first appointment as it was getting closer but stuck with it and I’m so glad I did! After each session, I walked out feeling a lot better than before I went in.
Ruth is so lovely and has helped me massively! She always listened to what I was saying with no judgement and personalised all techniques to my specific needs.
If anyone is feeling like they’re not sure whether to seek help, please book yourself an appointment with Ruth! It’s daunting to open up about the things that scare you but Ruth makes it easier!
