Ruth started her social service career as a Social Worker in a family service centre more than 30 years ago. She continued her post graduate training as a Family Therapist and worked with clients who sought healing in their grief, loss and pain in life encounters and relationships, enabling individuals and families to rediscover meaning, purpose and creative ways to relate to others and live life to the fullest.
She is grateful to many clients who have testified to the effectiveness of counselling and how their lives and relationships have been transformed. This has led her to be a strong advocate for counselling and family therapy as well as the professional and personal development of practitioners. She has been providing clinical training, supervision and consultation to social workers and counsellors in family service centres, specialist services and community agencies.
