Episode 50: A Woman's Journey to Authenticity with Ruth Bleakley-Thiessen
5 days ago
Welcome to the podcast! Today I’m very excited to be joined by coach, author and artist, Ruth Bleakley-Thiessen. Ruth was born in Northern Ireland and now lives in the north of Germany. Before her life as a coach, she studied Communications Design and did freelance work as a designer, illustrator, artist and entrepreneur. She is the mother of three adult sons. After the birth of her third son, she experienced a “vegetative exhaustion” - which propelled her into a long search for herself, which has become an ongoing journey. Ruth became a certified Journey Practitioner and has worked for thirteen years with clients of all ages. Ruth has been called the “Protectoress of Authenticity” - helping others to live authentically from the truth of who they are; clearing out blocks; unhealthy habits; and issues that make people shut themselves down. As a coach, teacher and writer, working with women in her private coaching sessions and mentorship programs, Ruth is fiercely committed to guiding her clients to achieve extraordinary results through the use of the Journey method. Her deepest passion is to help women transform their pain of low self-esteem, lack of confidence, eating disorders, body confidence and weight issues, fertility, miscarriage, abortion, emotional and health issues, abuse, grief, depression, physical issues, intimacy issues, relationship or family concerns - into an opportunity to reinvent themselves and experience new possibilities. She has written six books, including Woman Rise and Shine, a simple path for women who want to be themselves and Flown the Coop, a guide to dealing with transition when the kids leave home. Both books come with workbooks to assist you in your own journey. Ruth has also written two children's books: Snotme: The Unicorn who thought he wasn't a Unicorn and Nuffin -The Land Where Feelings are Not Allowed.
