Coaching speciality details
I am an ICF Accredited Coach and a Certified Transformational Coach, and I coach high-level and high potential executives to develop their leadership presence and to build resilience. Some examples of the benefits my clients get from working with me: understand yourself better so that you can integrate and influence change more effectively, restore a sense of balance in your life, manage your time more effectively and be more present in role. I support my clients to: • manage stress and build resilience • become better at listening to disparate perspectives • become more authentic and aligned with their values • develop a stronger leadership presence and voice • identify and effectuate transformation for themselves and their organisations
My professional background is in Project Management, Corporate IT and training. Since 2014, I work with high-level and high-potential expats to address the challenges of transitioning to a new culture. (This includes coaching Country and Regional Directors and Management Team Members). Our work together helps them build credibility and influence in their new environment, and to build their leadership presence. Alongside my professional life I have invested in my own personal and professional development. This work has helped me to handle challenging work relationships, manage high stress levels, and build my own emotional intelligence. My biggest motivation in becoming a coach is to share all that I have learned on my self-development journey. For example, I used to be easily stressed and reactive. Nowadays, whilst I do get stressed very occasionally, I calm down quickly and am no longer reactive. This is the type of benefit I I want others to experience, and is part of what I bring to my clients. I hold a BSc. in Physics from the University of Sussex, and a MSc. in Rural and Regional Resources Planning, from Aberdeen University. I am from the UK and have lived in Belgium since 2005.

Notes / Remarks
' I was quite critical of myself and of not being where I wanted to be in life at that point. ... With Ruth’s guidance my life has transformed. I learned to manage feelings of loneliness and accept my life as it is and somehow everything has come together and I’ve never been happier. I am amazed that at every session I learn something new about myself and I have something to think about and work on. In a non-judgemental and compassionate approach, Ruth has given me a different perspective on my issues and has shown me how to calm myself down when I’m upset and how to interpret different triggers. By teaching me to be mindful, present and kind to myself, Ruth has helped me understand and love myself at a deeper level.' ES Project Manager Ruth also helped me to overcome a major setback in my professional progress due to a tragedy I experienced in my personal life. I would like to acknowledge here the excellent coaching Ruth has been giving me! I am now perfectly comfortable with occasionally feeling uncomfortable and I fully enjoy my job again' Fanni Daruny, Engineer 'I have had a very constructive and life-changing experience working with Ruth....... Fortunately, thanks to our work in mindfulness, I have managed to connect more with my whole being, and consequently, value myself, recognize my needs and acknowledge the importance of being more kind and benevolent to myself. This in turn has allowed me to be more present and feel part of a whole that connects me with other people and with my environment at the same time...... Overall, it has really improved my well being and my relationships, starting by taking care of myself.' Catalina RP
