Meet your behavioural health coach
Ruth Feltham founder of Youphoria Coaching is a passionate, and dedicated cognitive behavioural coach who is committed to educating individuals about the importance of neuroscience techniques, behaviour pattern disruption and movement in order to achieve excellence in physical and emotional wellbeing. Having been subjected to significant abuse in her childhood, suffering from a congenital spinal condition along with a serious MVA in 2010, Ruth firmly believes that no matter what background or challenges an individual is faced with, you absolutely do have the power to create new healthy behavioural patterns in order to program success in all areas of life. Ruth has worked with individuals in numerous settings over the past 15 years, from working intensively as a Youth Worker in Greater Western Sydney to running inpatient programs at an acute facility in South-Western Sydney.
As a social worker Ruth maintains a dual focus on both assisting with and improving human wellbeing and identifying and addressing any external issues that may impact on wellbeing or may create inequality and injustice. Having worked in the field of human behaviour for the last decade, Ruth identified areas of human behaviour that required a flexible approach to reprogramming challenging and self-limiting behaviour. In addition to this, Ruth is also committed to providing therapeutic programs that are accessible multiple times a week and at a low cost to consumers.
“The social work profession facilitates social change and development, social cohesion, and the empowerment and liberation of people. Principles of social justice, human rights, collective responsibility and respect for diversities are central to social work. Underpinned by theories of social work, social sciences, humanities and indigenous knowledges, social work engages people and structures to address life challenges and enhance wellbeing.“ (AASW March 2013).
