About Me

Life Coach Ruth Armes

I have always loved people, and my career has always involved working with a variety of people, enabling them to be the best that they can be.

Every human being is unique and amazing, with the potential to be absolutely themselves, and to make a contribution to the world. We are born with a light inside us, but it is a difficult world, and our lights can be overshadowed by our experiences. It is as if there is a lampshade on us. But the light beneath is undimmed, and I know it is there. Through coaching we will bring it out to shine, so that you can be the best you can be, and live the life that you really want.

The Journey

I am indebted to Brandon Bays’ ‘The Journey’ and to Marion Young, teacher and mentor, for a wealth of amazing, healing and transformative experiences which have accompanied my own journey of self-enquiry.

In the past I was a teacher of primary children, and then for 18 years I worked with pregnant women and their families, empowering them to create the experiences of pregnancy, birth and parenting that they truly want.

I come from a big family, and my family is very important to me. I am married, and the mother of three children aged 28, 24 and 19 years, and I have home educated my youngest, who has specific learning needs. Parenting has been the hardest thing I have ever done.

To relax, I like to draw and paint, sing, walk with my dog, and I love to meditate and to be still and quiet.
