About Ruairi Stewart

Hi! My name is Ruairi Stewart. I have created a safe space where my aim is to help you feel empowered, see your worth, thrive in relationships and experience healing and change. I specialise in Self-Esteem and Relationships. I first graduated with a BSc degree in Psychology and then went on to do a postgraduate in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.  I then moved abroad to study and qualify in individuals, couples and family therapy, and that’s where I found my passion. 

I could see that conditioning and dynamics rooted in relationships, whether family or romantic, have a huge impact on self esteem and quality of life. 

I’ve dedicated my career to helping people change their people pleasing behaviour and escape the pitfalls of low self-esteem that keep them stressed, frustrated and stuck in a rut.

Will help u in every area of your life

5 50 Counselling

Have had some great therapy w v.good therapists (2) in previous decades when needed it. At various overwhelming or difficult times in my life I've used therapy to help me understand, overcome and progress through challenging circumstances. Similarly was recently fortunate enough to come across Ruairi and work through a) complicated and stressful family situation, plus b) spend some time on myself personally, to understand and move past own blocks limiting personal growth. Sincerely, I cannot recommend this therapist /man /human enough! His intelligence, knowledge, experience, observation, insight, way of analysing, presenting, helping patient implement ideas, perception and action is exceptionally good! Its straight forward, direct, compassionate, practical and a groundbreaking approach. Genuinely, if u are struggling w any personal issues (internally or externally) gather whatever strength, courage and motivation u need to start a therapy program w Ruairi. Its well worth the time, energy and value. If the price point is difficult to meet, try to find the funding, save towards it, invest in the course and yourself. For all the infinite value u gain from doing the therapy w him, will help u in every area of your life, and allow u to progress in ways one cannot even begin to imagine, esp while one is in currently unhealthy or detrimental or stagnant circumstances or patterns.

Feeling like myself again is better by far the best feeling ever

4.5 50 Counselling

I had been reccommnded ruairi by a few people and after watching his Instagram, I knew that he had the right vibe for me. I had spent years of not talking about issues with the death of my father, bad break ups and the straw that hit the camel's back was being mugged in London two years ago. Covid hit and long story short I knew I needed to deal with some of my issues. I reached out to ruairi and he had me onboard with him for three month session. After the first week of my session I also went through a break with my partner and ruairi was unbelievable in how to keep my head when all this was going on. I threw myself into making changes and with the toolbox that ruairi was able to give me. I have been able to not only be able to talk and deal with my father's death, abandonment issues and time apart from my partner. I have come out the other side feeling more like myself than ever. I feel like the laid back self that I was once was and things that annoyed me no longer bother me at all. I am also back with my partner and we are stronger than ever and able to communicate better due to the past three months of therapy. I am a better person and lighter. If anyone is ever in doubt of having therapy do it anyway as it is a game changer and you have absolutely nothing to loose. Ruairi is also good craic and able to understand your thought process and humour can help a difficult time. Feeling like myself again is better by far the best feeling ever. I honestly could not reccommnded him more and will be forever grateful bthat I met him.

I really can’t thank you enough or recommend working with you more!

5 50 Counselling

It’s no exaggeration to say that working with you has changed the way I live my life. Choosing to do this & make changes in how I see myself wasn’t easy, but you gave me the tools & the confidence in myself to do it. My relationships with my family are more open & just better. Life is good & I know I’m able to keep doing this on my own now & develop new relationships where I’m not a victim or left feeling underloved & unhappy.
I really can’t thank you enough or recommend working with you more!

I now feel confident setting boundaries and my self-esteem has soared

5 50 Psychotherapist Consultation

I have recently completed 12 weeks of sessions with Ruairi and I can honestly say my life has been transformed. Ruairi’s empathetic approach has helped me to identify the areas within my relationships that I needed to address. I now feel confident setting boundaries and my self-esteem has soared.

I am equipped with the tools to continue this work throughout my life and I am so thankful. I recognise that the most important relationship is with myself and I actively invest in this daily.
The online program that accompanies the sessions is an excellent resource that I will continue to use.

Ruairi’s direct, humorous and well-rounded approach to challenging topics encourage openness, honesty and introspection both during and after his sessions.

Considering the impact the past 12 weeks have had on both me and my wider relationships I would not hesitate to recommend that anyone thinking of working with Ruairi, begin as soon as they are able to.

I have seen incredible transformations and breakthroughs in my life

5 50 Psychotherapist Consultation, Treatment for Depression

I found Ruairi through word-of-mouth and I have been working with him throughout the last year. I have seen incredible transformations and breakthroughs in my life. He has helped me through some very tough times and has always been there with his support - always going above and beyond, always available even outside of sessions if something comes up. He has used different protocols that he works with and therefore works in ways beyond traditional methods of psychotherapy. We have together uncovered many past issues that have stopped me from evolving and through for example BWRT have worked to release these.
Having recently spent 3 weeks with my family, it has become even more apparent to me, how much Ruairi has helped me evolve in every way. It has also been very clear to the people close to me. When one peson’s energy and reactivity changes, the surroundings naturally do too, so I would 100% say that my work with Ruairi has trickled out and touched many more people also. I give Ruairi my whole-hearted recommendation🙏🏻

It has completely changed my life for the better

5 50 Psychotherapist Consultation

Ruairi has been the most amazing therapist. He was so supportive, knowledgeable and had so much empathy/warmth. He was very responsive to emails and it really felt like he was there for you when you needed him. I liked his honest style too as he told me what I needed to hear when I needed to hear it, at a time when I was feeling so overwhelmed with everything (after going through a relationship breakup, moving to a different city, new job etc). After being caught up in several unhealthy relationships, I no longer solely blame myself for these breaking down, and I am beginning to feel more confident in myself again. I have learned to set boundaries and have realised when to say no to unhealthy people/situations in my life. It has completely changed my life for the better. I would highly recommend Ruairi.

From day one I felt a massive sense of relief in taking action to take care of myself

5 50 Counselling

Therapy with Ruairí was the best decision I made for myself in 2020. I cannot emphasise the impact the 12 weeks had on my work life, my personal life, my sleep, overall well-being and outlook for the future. I couldn’t put my finger on anything in particular when I signed up but being newly qualified, starting a new job, moving county again and then the side effects of the COVID pandemic had me feeling overwhelmed.

From day one I felt a massive sense of relief in taking action to take care of myself and get my mojo back. Ruairí was also incredibly professional in every aspect of the course and I always felt as ease. From giving me tools to manage stress better to improving my sleep, improving my performance at work, unravelling limits I had placed on myself and helping me gain so much more confidence and trust in myself this course has been absolutely invaluable to me. My outlook on the future has changed drastically and I’m setting plans in motion to live a life that would have only featured in my daydreams in the past, and that’s all thanks to Ruairí.

He taught me the importance of trusting myself and understanding my worth

5 50 Psychotherapist Consultation

Reaching out to Ruairi was one of the best things I did. I struggled a lot with social anxiety, self-esteem and self-doubt. Seeking help from Ruairi allowed me to gain back the confidence I had lost over the years. Ruairi provided me with the tools to apply daily in my life and tools I will continue to use in the future. He taught me the importance of trusting myself and understanding my worth.

Most importantly he taught me not to care about what anyone else thinks and that is something I'll be forever grateful for. His approach is so effective, and it is so easy to open up and talk to him with confidence and ease. Ruairi made me feel comfortable on every call and it would always involve a lot of laughter.

Thank you Ruairi for everything you have taught me; you have not only provided me with effective tools for life but also educated me in so many ways.

I don’t think I’d have been able to get to where I am without his help

5 50 Psychotherapist Consultation

Working with Ruairí was truly life-changing for me. He helped me recognise how toxic a relationship I was in, gave me the tools to set boundaries and with his help I was able to end that relationship and rebuild my sense of self-worth and ownership of my life.

Ruairí makes it very easy to open up and be honest with him and with yourself about things. He helps you recognise patterns that you’re allowing to continue and he’s honest and straightforward about everything. He’s incredibly knowledgeable but always explains things in understandable ways that are easy to relate to and really helps you to take practical, tangible action to improve your situation.

My life is unrecognisable from when I had first reached out him and I don’t think I’d have been able to get to where I am without his help. I’m beyond grateful!

My life is so much better now, compared to last year I am so happy

5 50 Psychotherapist Consultation

This time last year I reached out to Ruairi, as I was in an extremely toxic relationship and was frightened on how to get out of that relationship and the aftermaths of the break up that would occur.

I was livened on eggshells every day in my relationship and dealing with so much anxiety. I had alot of dark days but the best thing I ever did was to build up the courage and to reach out to Ruairi to get the help I so desperately needed and wanted for years. Ruairi instilled courage, strength and got me to regain control of my own life! My life is so much better now, compared to last year I am so happy. I know my own worth now and know how to deal with relationships going forward.

Thanks to Ruairi, my life is now my life. I will always be so grateful and appreciative to all Ruairi's evening calls, meetings and emails. Thank you for everything you have done for me!

Always have the confidence to address what I need to address after a session

5 50 Psychotherapist Consultation • Paid: £75

Ruairi helped me so much, he helped me get the confidence to question and confront bad situations in relationships. He made me realise my self-worth and also not to fear rejection (which was huge for me).

The only way to describe it is that every time I speak to him, I gain such clarity and feel like a weight is lifted from my shoulders. I genuinely feel centred and always have the confidence to address what I need to address after a session.

I could go on and on but if anyone is thinking about reaching out, they def should! They won’t regret it!

Treated by: Mr Ruairi Stewart

Thank you, Leah, for leaving such a positive review I really appreciate you taking the time to do this! I'm so proud of your progress and how self-aware you've become. I'm delighted to know you were feeling grounded and confident after a session, and thank you so much for recommending working with me :)

I am a completely new person because of him

5 50 Psychotherapist Consultation

I found Ruairi when I was in quite a dark place in my life. I had just come out of a very unhealthy relationship and I was completely lost. Ruairi's kind hearth, knowledge and wisdom helped me see the other sign of the coin. How lucky I was to have come out the other side.

He helped me see everything from a completely different perspective which I never thought even existed and I now have him to thank for the love, strength and compassion I feel every day. His attention and compassion towards me and my situation at the time was incredible. He understood everything I was thinking, feeling and going through and empathised with me every time. He helped me realise my self-worth and how I had let it hit rock bottom without realising. He taught me about the power I have on my own life and helped me understand the importance of boundaries. I had reached a stage where I was so out of tune with my intuition that I had no control over my own life but instead, I let someone else take that reign of control. I remember my first phone call with Ruairi and I was so broken and lost. Through our several conversations Ruairi helped me take the reign of control back on my life, he helped me find the voice of my intuition again and my inner strength.

I would wholeheartedly recommend Ruairi as I am a completely new person because of him. I have a whole new perspective of the world and relationships in particular. I have also found a new power within me which is knowledge. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Ruairi 😊 I will be forever grateful for the wisdom, kindness and knowledge you taught me.

Mairead, I am honestly blown away when I think of how much you've grown and what you have overcome! You should be so unbelievably proud of yourself, I am honestly in awe of what you've accomplished. To know that you are feeling empowered, listening to your intuition, trusting yourself and in touch with the authentic you, is the most rewarding thing in the world for me. Thank you for allowing me to play a part in your journey and thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a kind review

Easy to grasp practices boosted my confidence

5 50 Psychotherapist Consultation

I highly recommend Ruairi!

The 12 weeks of no-nonsense support, practical and easy to grasp practices boosted my confidence and really encouraged me to allow my own strength to shine my way.

Ruairi is a very grounded and kind communicator which allowed for great healing through the ease of expression with him. This, in turn, leads me to be a better, more empowered, communicator with my relationship and family.

Cannot thank you enough!
