About

Why just Ruth?

In calling my business justruthcoaching I am emphasising my individuality, my freedom to be all of myself, ‘just Ruth’. Free from unhelpful and limiting patterns, to live ‘my’ values, delight in the present moment with others and hold hope for the future. It is my belief that this celebration of my individuality enables me to work intersubjectively supporting others to live with autonomy and choice.

Positive Psychology and Personal Strengths

By identifying all of our strengths such as curiosity; gratitude; hope; love and a zest for life, and using them contingently and skilfully we can increase our wellbeing. My key strengths are focused on the appreciation of the beauty of small things; an intense curiosity about life and what it is to be a person; and an acceptance of my vulnerability and a willingness to learn from my mistakes.

I have lived in England, Scotland, and France. Moving to France in 1990 presented me with the massive challenge of learning a new language and settling into a foreign culture. I raised three sons, and established, with my former husband, a successful organic farming business in the Loire Valley. Alongside my commitment to the farm, I became a trainer for Agolangues teaching business English in companies. I developed skills in logistics and sales working for companies in France and the UK. I established my own company as the French Agent for Tobar Ltd, that led to creating their first European branch company, Tobar France. As a Sales Executive and EU Field Sales Team Leader for BrandArt Ltd I managed the key accounts in France whilst also supporting and mentoring the European Sales Team.

Now, as a full time Positive Psychology Coach, individual and team coaching is a continuation and consolidation of this process. I listen really well to what is being said, verbally and nonverbally, in order to learn the language of each person and become familiar with the culture and context they live in.
