Hi, I’m Ruth Unaegbu! I am the founder of Ruth Unaegbu Counselling & Coaching and REST Counselling Group. As a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC #12132) & an Approved Clinical Supervisor, I have provided private therapy and supervision services in British Columbia, Canada and coaching services worldwide for over 12 years. I created my practices to support people by undoing aloneness and creating a safe space for them to heal and transform. It’s my goal to support people as they enhance and expand into the lives they were meant to live.

I work with a variety of individuals and provide culturally affirming counselling to People of the Global Majority, with a big focus on Black women, first-generation and immigrant Canadians. I also specialize in working with creative professionals (actors/actresses, musicians, artists, etc.) and high-performing athletes, focusing on performance blocks, focal dystonia and expansion. Additionally, I work with parents/caregivers and those part of the adoption triad, specifically transracial adoption.

I thoroughly enjoy connecting with others, digging deep, and delving into fears, motivations, inspirations, goals, and dreams. You are my client if you are someone who is ready for or is experiencing a change or transition. I use a variety of therapy techniques and modalities to help you reach your goals and transform your life.

Participation in therapy can result in several benefits to you, including improving interpersonal relationships and the resolution of the specific concerns that led you to seek support. If you’re ready to take a step toward healing, connect with me today!
