Ruth Culver

Integrative Hypnotherapist & Identity Constellations Facilitator

Since 2009 I’ve been working with adults and children to help increase their self-confidence, health and happiness.

I’m passionate about the benefits of self discovery to improve quality of life and well-being.

I originally trained in NLP and then in hypnotherapy one of the world’s foremost clinical experts, Dr John Butler of the Hypnotherapy Training Institute of Great Britain.

Since then I have continued to study and add a wide range of creative or trance-based modalities, all of which allow the client to get out of their thinking mind and into the subconsious/body, which is where emotions are held and can be relieved.

Rather than being prescriptive, I personalise my approach in sessions according to each individual client.

My work constantly shows that early attachment issues – e.g. early hospitalisation, anxious or depressed parents, traumatic birth – lay the foundation for all later emotional connections, with our self and others.  This developmental trauma creates fundamental subconscious beliefs such as “I’m not good enough” or “I’m not safe”. These undermine the body’s ability to regulate itself, resulting in both physical and emotional problems.

"I can't believe how much I saw about myself and how much good it has done me"

"Thank you so much. I felt very safe, warm, held, welcomed, accepted, seen, and hence, relaxed and at ease - which for me is rare."

"What an awesome facilitator you are! Very skillfully held, and with the perfect amount of holding, intervention and heart."

"Wow! What a day yesterday was. So grateful for everything I experienced. I feel different. Much lighter than I have for a while. My daughter just asked why I looked so good!"

"I appreciated your gentle, open, accepting approach and your wealth of knowledge and insights. I will be back."
