Helping you be your happiest with

ruth meditation teacher melbourne

I grew up in England and made Melbourne my second home after moving here 23 years ago and am happily married with two grown up sons.

I work with individuals such as yourself and organisations in both the private and public sector.  In a nut shell the focus of my work is to help people to live with more peace, ease and happiness in their lives through understanding and experiencing deeper levels of consciousness. What does that mean practically?It means that I can help you understand where stress, anxiety and lack of confidence come from and how to manage difficult emotions so you can thrive and enjoy life more. I help people live more comfortably with pain or fear through ill health or challenging life circumstances and develop inner resilience rather than outer bravado.  I guide you to discover deeper relationships with yourself and others and often my work is helping people to simply relax more and enjoy life!  Because of my diverse training and the paths I have chosen in life, I bring an enormous depth and perspective to the field of personal growth.  Alongside the more traditional modalities, I have a wealth of experience as a Self Esteem coach, Meditation and Mindfulness teacher, Conflict Resolution coach and Yoga teacher so I bring to you coaching and education that is not only practical and applicable but also deeply insightful, nurturing, healing and life changing.

I have worked in this field for the past fifteen years and my training and experience mean I have had the pleasure of becoming a coach and course provider for individuals and organisations looking for long lasting and meaningful change. I have a broad client base and my own studio where I teach groups and individuals as well as working in the corporate field. My approach is contemporary, educational, experiential and fun and the techniques I teach are practical, repeatable and profound!

The purpose of my work is to help you find positive, meaningful, permanent change and restore balance, ease and happiness to your life. Having seen the strain people often work under in large companies I’ve developed programmes for corporates in both public and private industries. I have implemented programs for ANZ, Yarra city council, Bunzl, ETH Zurich – University, Melbourne Fashion Institute and The Ark clothing company, addressing the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual aspects of health and well-being.

Through my work I addresses the multitude of problems people face in a modern world including, anxiety, insomnia, lack of confidence, job dissatisfaction, relationship difficulties, overwhelm, health challenges, trauma and day to day stress. I am passionate about empowering you to make the changes necessary to lead a happy and fulfilling life.

But knowledge and study aside it is my own life experience of being an army wife, living all over the world, caring form my husband through Cancer, raising two boys into emotionally intelligent and capable young men and being willing and interested in learning and growing from my own life experiences that helps me to help others.

More than anything it’s the people I work with who enrich my life and enhance my ability to do the work I do. Corporate groups managing enormous amounts of stress and trying to gain work life balance, brave women going through breast cancer, people grieving, suffering from low self-esteem, managing all sorts of things from pain, and trauma to difficult teenagers! These people are my biggest teachers and fuel my devotion to helping you bring your fullest potential to the world through discovering deeper levels of consciousness and feeling “well” mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually.

Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote –

“Finish each day and be done with it…  You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can.  Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it well and serenely.”

 

I look forward to meeting you as we learn to navigate life’s challenges “well and serenely.”
