Meet Your Instructor

Ruth Hassard

Qualified counsellor (PGDip) and a member of BACP (MBACP). Ruth splits her work between Private Practice and in Primary Care Mental Health for NHS Wales.

“My work is based on an Integrative Model, meaning I vary the approach depending on the unique needs of my clients. I see the therapeutic journey as just that, a journey which I am privileged to join. I don’t believe it is about giving answers or quick fixes but offering a safe space for the client to explore themselves more fully. I love people and drinking tea – and I am lucky that my job allows me to combine both!”
