Ruth Andoh-Baxter, Transcend
Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, Ad.Dip. CP MNCS Accredited
Welcome to Transcend and thank you for visiting my website. Please do get in touch via the contact page if you have any queries or are considering booking a therapy programme.
My name is Ruth and Transcend is my private practice. With a 3-year Advanced Diploma in Counselling & Psychotherapy and 600+ practice hours, I have the professional qualifications, experience and knowledge of therapy modalities to support you with your mental health. My private work through Transcend includes monthly one to one supervision as required by the National Counselling Society (NCS) my accreditation body to ensure best practice.
Since June 2019 I have been part of the team at the Richmond Borough MIND Psychotherapy & Counselling Service volunteering to provide individual psychotherapy/counselling for clients weekly. This includes group/peer supervision aligned to the BACP framework. My clinical work is currently at 300 hours+.
In Summer 2021 my work extends to support ex-servicemen/women and their families as a registered therapist with military charity Working with the Wounded/Headstart, plus registration with RedArc and BUPA as a therapist supporting professionals via Employee Assistance Programmes and Health Insurance.
Throughout the year, I undertake Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses and training workshops, keeping abreast of latest developments and 2021/22 will see my learnings progress with the L6 in Supervision and BSc in Forensic Psychology.
Therapy, is about listening and helping clients to help themselves - it is about together working towards an identified objective, mutual respect, collaboration. This is the way I like to work.
EQ - Emotional Intelligence is a quality that can help us forge more positive relationships using empathy as a foundation and, when things go wrong in life as they invariably do, we can focus on acceptance, ownership, healing, restoration and conflict resolution. That's empowering!
Wherever you are on your personal journey, our lives have purpose. Your individual purpose is not comparable to anyone else's - it is all about you. It's what makes you feel complete, content and at peace with yourself. It's what earths you. Therapy can help us to navigate relationships more positively. It starts with you.
