Welcome to my online world

My name is Ruth and I am a counsellor & psychotherapist based in Suffolk, UK, and this is my blog.

I share my home with my husband, Stuart who is my inspiration throughout all that I do, and it is only with his support that I was able to train and consequently am now able to work in the way that I do. I am blessed to have him in my life. Our home is never completely quiet we have 6 cats, a marine fish tank, 4 tropical fish tanks and my personal favourite tank which contains my musk turtle Hercules and my blue lobster Lobbie, and 2 outside ponds.

We love the tranquility that the fishes provide, even the gentle hum of the filters and their constant flow of water are soothing, our home is our haven away from everyday stresses and strains of the outside world, it is our sanctuary.

The only thing that occasionally disturbs this haven is our clowder of cats when they are being mischievous or on days like today when they are all inside and dotted on various surfaces to keep away from the rain, and the inevitable fight for the prize spot on top of the fish tank where its warm and cozy which happens as they take it in turns to be cat supreme!

I am looking forward to sharing my day to day thoughts and adventures of my many animals.
