Ruth Cloherty

Counselling Psychotherapist

I have a background in ‘general nursing’ as well as in ‘business to business marketing’. I have also worked in the arena of training in the area of nutrition and some other complementary therapies.

I embarked on a degree in psychology in 2010. I was introduced to Transactional Analysis (TA) in the second year of the degree and conducted a research study for my final year dissertation on the application of TA to everyday life. I was so impressed with the feedback from participants in this study that I embarked on a foundation course in TA.

This enabled me to develop an intervention for another research study that I was a part of. The results of this study also showed me that TA helped to empower people leading them to become happier and more satisfied. This inspired me to study TA further and to become a psychotherapeutic Counsellor and here I am.
