Ruth Phypers
Trauma and Addiction Recovery Coach
“I help people transform the challenge of living with trauma and addiction into confidence, strength and peace of mind”.

Living with unhealed trauma, particularly from abuse, feels like going through life without any clothes on – unprotected, ashamed and exposed. Although the original wounds may be from many years before, in reality, trauma and addiction recovery continues throughout one’s entire life.

During my years of recovery from trauma, addiction and abuse, I have developed a solution for living healthily and happily, both as an independent woman and also within intimate relationships. This I am able to share with my clients as a path to joyful living. I’ve also shared this journey in the novel: Dragon King’s Daughter.

My Counselling and Coaching Services (along with my Therapeutic Laser service) are for anyone facing the challenge of living, and loving, with trauma. This may have impacted their life in terms of addiction and intimacy issues. It may have manifested in low self-esteem and a lack of confidence. It may have led to self-harm or self destructive behaviour. It may have created destructive relationships or the inability to make the best decisions. All of this I understand and know. I have walked through the fire and come through the other side, stronger and more compassionate, with self-respect and self-love. I continue to do so, day by day. And I help my clients do the same…

A brilliant start to the month this morning. In between putting the finishing touches to my book cover, Dragon King's Daughter, I met my Buddhist friend and fellow SGI-UK member Sue Thornton.

Up at 2.30am to drive down to the coast to catch sunrise for a photoshoot. Skies were magnificent and the tide was high. And this friendly sea creature was there to welcome us, playing in the water for a good 20 minutes while we worked. According to the shamans, seals are symbolic of sex and love. There couldn't have been [...]
