Online therapy and counselling

I'm currently unavailable.
Please contact another counsellor on this website.


My name is Ruth Hubbard. I am a fully qualified and accredited Counsellor & Psychotherapist offering online counselling to both individuals and couples. I provide a safe and confidential space for you to talk about anything in your life that may be causing you distress or confusion. From feeling unfulfilled and that odd sense that things aren't quite right, to specific issues which are affecting your daily life.


Counselling can help you to deal with many different issues, including but not limited to:


  • Anger management
  • Anxiety, Stress and Depression
  • Bereavement and loss


  • Coming to terms with medical diagnosis e.g. Motor Neuron Disease
  • Emotional, Physical or Sexual Abuse
  • Learning to accept and live with chronic long term conditions e.g ME, fibromyalgia, MS, Diabetes


  • Life crisis or transition
  • Loss of Confidence or Low Self Esteem
  • Relationships problems
  • Self defeating and self destructive behaviours


  • Separation and / or divorce recovery
  • Self Defeating behaviours and patterns
  • Traumatic experiences
  • Work difficulties



Supportive, warm and non-judgmental

As a qualified integrative counsellor I use a variety of counselling approaches to suit the needs of the individual. The main theoretical approaches that I use in my work are; Person Centred, Solution Focused, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness, Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.


I will work with you in a way that is supportive, warm and non-judgmental, to guide you through any distress you may be experiencing. May aim is to empower you to deal with any difficulties, whatever they may be. Enabling you to gain a deeper self awareness and understanding of yourself, which helps you live a happier and more fulfilled live.
