Ruth Netherwood

Ruth Netherwood is co-founder of CreativeCPDs, in partnership with author Jennifer Guest.

Ruth is a Registered Member of BACP, a Bereavement Counsellor at Sue Ryder Hospice, RELATE trained Couples Counsellor and has a successful private practice in Yorkshire, working with couples, young people and adults. She has over 25 years experience of delivering and initiating innovative, creative projects for individuals, groups and communities.

CreativeCPDs’ courses were developed in response to therapists’ demand for more creative, experiential training. The CPDs are ideal for any professional working within a therapeutic capacity. Whatever your preferred theoretical modality, creative art techniques can be valuable additions to your professional toolkit. Artwork is a vital means of expression and effective communication. It can enhance emotional and psychological wellbeing, be an effective form of stress management and a means of personal development.

Creative CPDs co-founder is Jennifer Guest. Jennifer is the author of The Art Activity Book for Psychotherapeutic Work, The CBT Art Activity Book, and The Relational Art Activity Book. She’s an accredited member of BACP and works as a Clinical Supervisor for a counselling centre in Yorkshire.

Both Jennifer and Ruth feel passionate about the exploration and integration of creativity within the therapeutic relationship. Our commitment to helping build confidence in therapists in using these invaluable techniques has breathed life into CreativeCPDs.
