Ruth Hall (MBACP)

Therapist & Life Coach

Welcome to Wynyard TLC, whatever stage of your personal or professional journey you are at I am here to help guide you through it. My name is Ruth, I have worked in the business of empowering people for 25 years. I am a qualified person centred counsellor (Dip. Humanistic counselling ) and I am also a professional member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. (MBACP) Alongside this I have undertaken continued professional development in the fields of Solution focused therapy, Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), Gestalt, NLP and Transactional Analysis to name a few. I am currently working towards becoming a trauma-informed therapist before the end of 2022. I have extensive experience and skills in coaching and mentoring and am a qualified teacher and careers advisor.

I have worked for years in senior management roles within the social care industry and have worked as a professional change agent and trouble-shooter not only to facilitate personal change with individuals but also on a corporate level, transforming failing care  and residential homes and social care services to bring them up to the required standard in a matter of months. In addition to this I have managed a secure forensic unit providing me with insight into the mind and motives of offenders and at the other end of the spectrum have worked with those who have experienced rape and  sexual abuse.

I offer one to one counselling as well as life and careers coaching. My corporate work includes staff training and critical incident debriefing. I also open up psychoeducation courses and self care / support groups to the public from my therapy room in Hartlepool.
