Ruta Yawney, MA, RCC, FAMI

Fellow, Association for Music and Imagery
Registered Clinical Counsellor


Do you need someone to talk to? Do you struggle with alcohol or drugs, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, trauma or maybe just life transitions? Thank you for visiting my site. What I hear most in my practise is: “I want to be happy”. However, according to a recent poll only 13% of us are “engaged” in our daily work, the thing we spend most of our waking lives doing! I say, “Don’t ask what the world needs; ask your heart what it needs to make it sing because that is what the world needs from each one of us now”. HOW we do that is through: Honesty, Openness and Willingness. Everything that happens in life has lessons if we’re willing to be honest, open and willing. Even loss and change can be catalysts for growth. The more we become connected to ourselves, to our emotions, the more insight we have into the answers from within. Counselling is a time to listen to your heart. Call for a free phone consultation; I look forward to connecting with you.
