Ruth Allen PhD is a qualified outdoor counsellor/psychotherapist, person-centred therapeutic coach, and an experienced trainer and facilitator. She specialises in outdoor practice, nature connection and the power of relationship and she is interested in how we make meaning of our lives, the stories we tell, and the things we’ve been through. To further understand Ruth's work outdoors see the video below that was created with Millican and Sim Warren and was selected as a Vimeo staff pick.
Alongside her therapy work, Ruth is a keen adventurer. In autumn 2018, she ran solo and unsupported across the Bosnian Dinaric Alps, an assumed world first. In 2020, she will return to the Balkans to run the Dinaric Alps again from Montenegro to Albania. Day-to-day she enjoys the small adventures and can be found kayaking, running and biking in the UK uplands. She enjoys inspiring people through new adventures that combine her love for place, people and purpose.
In 2019, Ruth took on the supervisory role of CIC Director for ‘Rooted for Girls’ a unique woodland-based psycho-educational programme for teenage girls in the North of England.
Ruth's first book GROUNDED will be published in 2021.
