I work mainly online. I also work by arrangement at my private address in Brussels.... Covid rules permitting!
I have been working as a coach since 2016. As well as coaching, my work is guided by a range of approaches, in which I am trained. This includes Focusing, Voice Dialogues, and Mindful Self Compassion, among others. I have also been engaged in my own personal and professional development for over thirty years. This work has given me a deeper acceptance of myself, which helps me in how I am in relationship with other people. It has also assisted me to get more out of my life. I feel happier and I am easier to be around. This compassionate approach informs my work as a coach, and is part of what I offer my clients.
Coaching method / approach
Everything I do as a coach is in service of helping you gain awareness, because awareness brings more choice, and choice brings freedom. I support you to make better choices, based on what you are now learning about yourself, and to follow through on what matters to you. This can help you to express more of your potential and to become happier. In working with me, we agree the goals that you want to set for yourself. The coaching work may be supported by assignments that we agree together . This might include reflective journaling, reading, and small experiments to assist your growth and learning. I use a variety of coaching methods in which I am trained including Developmental Coaching, Transformational Coaching, Conscious Business Coaching, and Evidenced Based Coaching. I also draw on tools from other disciplines in which I am trained. This includes: Mindful Self Compassion; Positive Psychology; Voice Dialogues and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, among others. Additionally I am Certified Focusing Guide and Trainer. This work can help you to get a deeper understanding of yourself based on how you feel in your body, support you to stay calm in difficult situations, and to build a stronger belief in yourself.
Notes / Remarks
'Ruth really took time to understand us and our needs. She listened carefully, she asked good questions to probe deeper which helped us reflect on issues. She made herself available outside of sessions. She helped on a strategic and a tactical level. She was excellent and I would highly recommend her.' Jo ' I truly believe that I am a better employee, leader, and person following our sessions.' John 'I have learned so much more about myself after my sessions with Ruth. She has helped me advance closer to a better version of myself. It has been a pleasure working in a non-judgmental, understanding and thought-provoking environment' Ruska ' 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
