Welcome to the Mindfulvoice blog by Ruth Roberts, BACP accredited counsellor and psychotherapist and lecturer in counselling and psychotherapy.
This blog is about being authentic. It is a space to share my thoughts on all matters to do with wellness, counselling, mindfulness, research and spirituality and anything else in between. I hope you find it informative and helpful.

I am a person-centred and experiential counsellor. I currently work as a full-time lecturer in counselling and psychotherapy in addition to carrying a small clinical caseload.
I have fourteen years’ experience of working with clients from a variety of backgrounds and nine years’ experience as a supervisor to newly qualified and trainee counsellors. I am also a mindfulness teacher and practitioner with a strong interest in incorporating mindfulness into counselling and higher education.
A large part of my counselling work has been in helping young people deal with the emotional challenges of academic life while developing a sense of self at times of transition and change.
My practice is about helping clients to find ways to make sense of how they are feeling; to create meaning when life is confusing and to live more authentically by finding a match between feelings and self-expression.
As a trained singer, I understand the power of finding and having a voice. I work with individuals to develop a more acceptant attitude to themselves and by doing so, to find the means to express themselves more fully and authentically to other people.
