Background and Experience

Because of the diverse training Ruth has undertaken and the paths she has chosen in her life she brings an enormous depth and wide perspective to the field of leadership and organisational human resources. Alongside more traditional methods it is her wealth of experience as a meditation teacher and self-esteem and conflict resolution coach that means her clients receive coaching and education that is not only practical and applicable, but also deeply insightful and life changing.

She is accredited in international assessment methodologies such as Targeted Selection Interviewing® (TSRI®) the internationally recognised Unconscious Bias tool, and the Jungian based Universal Hierarchy of Motivation Rooms. This combined with her training and expertise as a self-esteem enhancement, conflict resolution coach and meditation teacher mean she has become a sort after coach and course provider for individuals and organisations looking for long lasting and meaningful change.

She trained under Dr Richard Miller, psychologist and Yogic scholar of the Integrative Restoration Institute® and is a fully certified Integrative Restoration meditation teacher. She is also a skilled 'story-telling' trainer and coach.

Her education and training has enabled her to coach and counsel hundreds of people both individually and in group settings in areas as diverse as, anger management, stress management, phobias, anxiety, chronic pain, depression, relationship problems at home and at work, managing serious health issues, insomnia and job dissatisfaction.

Ruth’s path towards helping people improve their lives began over 30 years ago as a personal trainer. She is a qualified Pilates and Yoga instructor and set up her own consultancy integrating her work in this area with mindfulness and self-esteem enhancement. She has trained instructors in mind-body well-being and is a sought after presenter and speaker at national conventions.

Having seen the strain people often work under in large companies she developed programmes for corporates in both public and private industries. She has implemented programs for organisations such as ANZ, Yarra City Council, City of Yarra, The Ark Clothing and ETH Zurich (one of the World’s top 10 universities), addressing the mental, emotional and physical aspects of well-being and these programs have been consistently very highly rated by the staff who have attended.

Ruth is a leader in her field and addresses the multitude of problems people face in a modern world empowering people to understand how to make the changes necessary to lead a happy and fulfilling life.
