A Season of Self Care
A 3 month Journey Implementing self care to develop deep self love and worth for yourself.
Doors Are Open
to Begin June 1st 2022
A Season of Self Care
is a 3 month program for a special group of people who wish to prioritise their heath and development in the area of self care and love for themselves.
The course is a combination of self study with weekly videos/audios and live coaching zoom calls to inspire and dive deeper, community support with a private group and accountability partners creating a transformational experience for you. ........
It is time to prioritise yourself and your needs so you see results in your health and wellness
still feel able to give fully to others.
We all know that self care is a good thing, giving more to yourself increases health, happiness and enjoyment, not to mention the extra vitality and energy you have for your passions and to give to those you love.
But, all too often we’re too busy. Stressed. There’s just too much going on. We neglect self care and things suffer, we are not as fine as we like to pretend we are. If we’re honest, we’re probably not spending as much time on ourselves as we need to.....
So why don't we do Self Care?
When we have good intentions but don't formulate a self care plan or lifestyle change we can end up
Prioritising others needs instead of our own.
Avoiding or procrastinating and ending up not having time for the things we want to do most.
Not looking after ourselves, like getting too little sleep, making poor food choices etc....
We come up against resistance, (what stops us) and this is why, in the past, we haven't reached our goals.
Finding it hard to stay committed and stay consistent with our plans and motivation dwindles.
During this course we explore what is getting in the way of the results you desire. And the supportive environment of the group will keep you on track and consistent with your self care. Everything is in place to succeed.
This course will help you to break out of your unhelpful habits and implement new ones that feel good.
This course is for you if you are ;
Frustrated because when you try to implement your health and wellness goals you are not succeeding.
Feeling exhausted and stressed with not enough hours in the day to give yourself what you need.
Feeling depleted and burnt-out, looking after everyone else's needs before your own.
Feeling overwhelmed or disconnected from yourself.
And you want to;
Take action on the things that matter to you and feel you are moving towards your health and wellness goals. (loosing that extra weight you are carrying, enroling in the art class you have been dreaming about, setting aside some time for yourself. )
Find balance in your life, so there is time for yourself as well as others needs.
Meet your own needs and go after what you want.
Feel more connected to yourself, your needs, skills, and visions for yourself for the future.
Learn to manage what is holding you back from taking those steps in loving yourself.
Develop self-love and healthy appreciation for yourself.
Create more balance in your life.
Connect with likeminded people who inspire each other to grow.

A wonderful array of practices to help support your self love journey. Physical movement practices, meditations, affirmations and monthly playlists to keep you in the right mindset and motivated throughout the program.
I will lead you, step by step, to look into areas of your life where more loving and self care practices can be brought in. We will be doing this together with lots of support from myself and others in our online community. It is going to be fun and easeful.
There will be personalised input from me during the live zoom calls and private group, accountability from others in the group, support and group connection. It is far harder to succeed on your own, than on a journey with the support and help of others.
AND When we find connection with people who are on a similar path to us, deep friendships, support, inspiration and motivation are created. And most of all results;
we can do this together.
It is far harder to succeed on your own than on a journey with the support and help of others.
"I feel I am finally taking care of myself."
"Ruth has been a wonderful mentor, wise yet light in both attitude and direction empowering me to find my own path and holding my hand along the process path. Thank you Ruth."
I am ready to do it all again!!
"I do alot of self care anyway but then I thought well you can never do enough!! "
"Through this course I have felt gently held, supported and accepted to reconnect with accessible and doable self care acts."
"My biggest challenge at the start of the course was just liking myself again. Sometimes I forget who I am, the course guided me to connecting back in with myself honestly."
"An amazing uplifting , nurturing experience. Ruth is a fantastic teacher with a kind loving energy."
"I have discovered that self care is the bedrock of all else and actually by prioritising my self care everything else will fall in to place. I have undone some hard held beliefs which it turns out we’re sabotaging my feelings of wellness and control. As I near the end of my 3 month course with Ruth, I feel better equipped to move forward in my life gently with self love and gratitude at the core to bring me closer to my life visions and aims. I feel aligned and confident. "
When you join a Season of Self Care we will begin a beautiful journey of 3 Months together, to prioritise you.
Starting June 1st 2022
Each week you will have a short audio or video to explore, reflect upon, share with your accountability partner and the group and implement if you so choose.
These weekly practices and reflections will gently guide you through an easy structured process, to make self care a happy and easeful part of your life.
So you feel able to implement your individualised self care and health plan.
Throughout this course I have brought together many really powerful self care and self love practices that I use and have seen others integrate in their lives. They have the potential to change the way you see self care and your relationship with yourself, having a huge impact on your life as you implement the changes you desire.
This course is not talking about fluffy bubble baths etc (although I do love a good bubble soak) but truly impactful self care that talks self worth and love for yourself so it oozes out in every area of your life.
I have Included some extra bonuses for you, that will support you on your self care journey. Have a peep below.
"I learnt new things. Ruth lead us into lots of areas that I hadn’t payed attention to in self care before."
"Connecting with others was brilliant, on your own you only have yourself. When there are others you can see it from different perspectives."
"The course was really helpful and well put together, I thought with lots of tools and suggestions. Bringing the awareness to areas that you may not think about when you think of self care."
Throughout the course I have felt a kind of softening towards myself and others and more awareness of the gremlins, rules and expectations that we set for ourselves.
" I didn’t realise how hard I was being on myself and I was looking in perhaps the ‘wrong’ places for self care.."
"When I get into a low place, the self care course has given me the tools to get out of the down so I can care about myself again."
"I loved our get togethers online, it felt really lovely to be able to have that space to listen to how everyone was getting on and to share our own stuff, it felt like we became a little family. "
"I really enjoyed the meditations, they were very insightful. I had these aha moments."
"The support from the others in the group was amazing. You can share in a safe place, there was no judging, you are all there for one another and everyone understands."

Monthy Uplifting Playlists
This 3 month course will not only change the way you think and feel about yourself, but have a profound impact upon your life.
Living from a place of self love and care for yourself means you are going to make choices that truly feel right, harnessing your joy for life. Stepping forward with who you are and what you believe in, not worrying about what others may think, or that you may not be deserving. Feeling great about who you are.
When we connect in deeply with ourselves we can discover some inner restrictions or fear to give ourselves this love and care. This journey will give you the spaciousness to meet and explore some of those inner restrictions so we can settle in a place of love for ourselves and others.

A Season of Self Care is the cumulation of my own journey and discovery of self love.
I spent my early adulthood more concerned to please others, loosing connection with myself, getting carried away on the hamster wheel of life, neglecting self care, comparing myself to others who seemed to have it all together, doing everything and more, feeling doubtful of my abilities and stuck because of the fear of what others may think of me. Realising that I was not the only one who felt like this I created A Season of Self Care.
I feel equipped to guide you on this journey as I turned things around for myself. If I can do it you can.
For the last 25 years, self development and growth have been a huge part of my life. My studies in psychology, yoga and Coaching qualifications accelerated my own deep inner growth and transformation. I came to the realisation that ......
LOVE IS THE KEY
Coming back to Loving myself and infusing Self Care was like watering a seed, then watching the confidence and self worth grow.
I have a degree in Psychology , MA and Post graduate Teaching qualifications. Plus, over 1000 hours of self development and yoga qualifications and 20+ years experience in practice.
I am a Love and Authenticity Practitioner/Coach, Somatic yoga teacher, Reiki 1 and 2 practitioner, Hypopressives facilitator, counsellor and Whole Healer specialising in Self Love, Overwhelm and Burnout. I have been interested in mind body practices for as long as I can remember. I also teach and co-ordinate Teacher Training programs with Heart of Living Yoga.
To gain a greater appreciation of life I have enjoyed additional training in meditation, gentle yoga and relaxation, yoga for ME, children’s yoga, therapeutic yoga, pre and post natal yoga, Somatic yoga and yoga for healthy lower backs.
A Season of Self Care may not be for you;
If you are looking to join this course for venting or feeling sorry for yourself. We are here to uplift and empower each other in growth and love.
If you are not prepared to dig in deep and engage in the journey. This course produces results when you participate in the community and resources. That way we see transformation.
If you can’t make yourself and your well-being a priority and dedicate 1-2 hours a week to this course
If you are looking for individual therapy, but it can work well along side this.
Self Care and Self Love ripples into our Confidence, Connection with others and Success in all areas of our lives: this is why it is so important.
