Ruth T Naylor, PhD, Chartered Psychologist
Autogenic Therapist, Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapist, Psychotherapist
I welcome people from all walks of life, all persuasions and all orientations.
I thrive on helping people help themselves with a variety of challenges.
I’ve got lots of life experience as a mother, grandmother, foster mother and partner and more than 25 years of managing in high tech. I’ve worked on inpatient mental hospital wards in the states, on manufacturing shop floors in Scotland, and in executive board rooms in South Africa. So I can relate to whatever baggage you bring – to help you make peace, let go, and become the you YOU want to be.
I have served on Research and Executive Committees and as a Trustee of the British Autogenic Society. I am a Chartered Psychologist member of the British Psychological Society, a founding member of the International Society for Autogenic Training and Autogenic Psychotherapy, the North American Autogenic Society, and a member of the National Council of Psychotherapists, UK and the National Guild of Hypnotists, USA.
I am approved to teach the British Autogenic Society’s Personal Autogenic Training for Professionals Certificate course to health and social care professionals. This course is awarded 20 CPD hours by the British Psychological Society.
