Ruth Shaw - Humanistic Counsellor


My name is Ruth Shaw. I am a Humanistic Counsellor based in the Rushcliffe area of Nottingham. If you find yourself here, you may be feeling a bit anxious and unsure whether counselling is something that is right for you and would be helpful.

In counselling, we will work together to explore, reflect and talk about the issues in your life that are causing you concern. We may look at your emotions, thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), aligned with and committed to their ethical framework, details of which can be accessed at

About the counselling I offer

Being a Humanistic Counsellor, I put the client at the heart of what I offer, and I believe that you are the expert on your life and what your needs are. I will not tell you what to do, but will offer a facilitative space to help you understand more about yourself and the choices you have. It is important to me to offer a safe, confidential and supportive space for you to talk about what matters most to you and to work through the life struggles and personal issues you may be facing in a safe and ethical way.

I work with adults and young people, offering short or long-term therapy to help individuals make an effective change and/or to enhance their wellbeing.
