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.

Each session helped bring me closer to the confident person I am today.

5 50 Counselling

Working with Ruairi saved my life! I say this genuinely. He helped me work through certain behaviours that I had never really made peace with. He helped me work through feelings and actions that kept repeating themselves to ensure if anything was to happen again my reaction was different.

Each session helped bring me closer to the confident person I am today. I was able to accept what had happened in the past and make peace with my previous relationships.

Everyday is a struggle, which we all know, but working through these situations, breaking them down and understanding them for what the are and to be able to let them go is a feeling of freedom we all want to and can feel once the work is done. Thank you so much!!

You really will not be disappointed and the counsellor's accent is the icing on the cake

5 50 NLP - Neuro Linguistic Programming

Last year was a really REALLY difficult time in my life, and when I signed up for therapy with Ruairi, he said he couldn't believe how well I was dealing with everything, but made me realise that I wasn't actually coping I was just suppressing. We used multiple techniques but mostly I just enjoyed having a listening ear that had a real no bullshit approach. He isn't afraid to tell you when something is wrong and open your eyes when you're dancing around in rose tinted specs!

I valued having our time- like I was speaking to a best friend who I could trust my life with. I don't feel like I need therapy anymore but I kind of want it just to have my check ins and have a laugh and feel at ease with Ruairi again! You really will not be disappointed and his accent is the icing on the cake! Thank you so much Ruairi!

I would recommend

5 50 Counselling

I made the decision to work with Ruairí when I thought I had no one else to turn to I had gone through a separation 18 months previous. I have done everything I said I wouldn't I drank, took drugs, and dated a lot of girls all in the middle of a pandemic. I was never happy.

I was a bit apprehensive at first as it was mostly women Ruairí had worked with but that did not matter after our first session he made feel at ease. He showed he cared, he is someone I have no hesitation dropping a message to any time. He taught me a lot about people-pleasing and leaving my old self behind and bringing forward the good person that is in us all.

I would recommend Ruairí to anyone that wants real change and is ready to put the hard work into changing their lifestyle cutting out toxic friends and building new relationships I don't see Ruairí as just a brilliant therapist I see him as a friend thanks for everything big man.

I always came away from each session feeling lighter and brighter

Psychotherapist Consultation

Ruairi has been by far the best coach and therapist I have had in my life. He has such a beautiful soul and my life has totally transformed. Ruairi is so easy to open up to and in the first session he made me feel so much at ease. He touched on things that other therapist never drew my attention to. I always came away from each session feeling lighter and brighter. Ruairi has a wealth of knowledge and has taught me so much.

I am no longer a people pleaser, co dependent and can now set boundaries. I have become much more confident and found a true meaningful relationship. He has helped me find my voice and my inner strength and for that I am truly grateful.

I choose this therapist because he is experienced and knowledgeable, his passion stood out

5 50 Psychotherapist Consultation

I would highly recommend Ruairi to anyone that is considering entering into a journey of therapy. It is not easy to work on yourself and making a decision about the type of therapist you want to work with is key. I choose him because he is experienced and knowledgeable, his passion stood out. The fact he is continually growing his practice for me personally was something I was drawn to and interested in. His experience and skill set meant that the therapy was specific to me.

Over our period of time working together I have discovered many things about myself as a person, I have been honestly blown away by this self discovery. I know that had I not invested in myself and my journey and choose Ruairi as my therapist that I may have never discovered many of these things about myself. As a person he is authentic and speaks openly and honestly. I felt supported and accepted throughout, it was a safe non judgmental place one where I could truly start unpacking bits of myself.

The use of different techniques moved me away from the typical talk therapy I had previously experienced and for me this was key in discovering myself all I can say is I tried it and it worked. When I began the journey I was feeling lost, stuck in life, frustrated and anxious this therapy experience has empowered me. It has opened many doors in my life and I am now feeling ready and excited to explore them all. I feel like I never want to stop working on myself.

I want to continue to grow as a person as Ruairi has helped me to uncovered parts of myself and has has helped me gather the tools I need to be self empowered to take the action required to start living my life for me. I am excited about where my path is going now and have relaxed into myself and I now have a trusting feeling in life's flow. Believe me this is not how I felt at all when I first began working with Ruairi. He has helped me heal and grow as a person, I now listen to my inner myself and I will be forever grateful to Ruairi for being a part of my Journey and supporting me in the way he has.

There isn’t enough words and time to explain how much of a positive change my life

5 50 Psychotherapist Consultation

From following Ruairi on insta I knew that when I would feel ready for the hard changes I needed to make; that he was who I needed. I feel like I am a more complete version of myself since working with him. I am more content, aware and I’d like to even say powerful than I ever thought possible. I came with a wheelbarrow of childhood issues of loss, trauma, neglect, alcohol abuse. Repeating romantic relationships of abuse, toxic behaviours and no boundaries. I struggled with self-awareness, confidence, people pleasing and unhealthy coping mechanisms, as well as lots of other unresolved issues. I thought I was ‘unfixable’. But Ruairi has helped me change my life, and I will forever be grateful. We cleared triggers, dealt with grief, overcame my communication problems. He helped me understand the why and how of my difficulties and how to change things for the better. I now know how to better deal with so many challenging situations in my life. How to be a better role model and parent to my children and helped me let go of so many things that prevented me from moving forward in my life. There isn’t enough words and time to explain how much of a positive change my life has taken since working with him. It’s a life long investment and I wish I made it sooner. He made everything so easy and comfortable. Everyone should have a therapist but if you can have Ruairi as yours then do it because it will be the best decision you could make.

He helped me realise that I was holding myself back and now I feel completely free

5 50 Counselling

I cannot recommend Ruairí enough. I have worked with him the last few months. He has honestly changed my entire life. I no longer recognise the person I once was. I use to be such a people pleaser and not rocking the boat. I no longer have that fear. Ruairí gave me the tools that I needed to be able to communicate my needs and also understand exactly what I wanted. Something I never really had asked myself previously.

When we began working together it was for one thing that I need to work on and move forward from but in the end Ruairí changed my life and discover parts of myself I didn't know existed. He helped me realise that I was holding myself back and now I feel completely free. I cannot thank him enough for what he has done for me.

I recommend him to everyone. He is amazing and works so hard to help you and understand you. If you're questioning or thinking of starting honestly just start. Best money I have ever spent on myself and an investment that will last me a lifetime.

To say it has been life-changing would be an understatement

5 50 Psychotherapist Consultation

I’ve just recently finished 3 months with the happy whole coach. To say it has been life-changing would be an understatement. I had left a toxic relationship and I wanted to rebuild my life and become a strong role model for my children.

Navigating co-parenting became so much easier when I realized that just because I was an empathic person I shouldn’t tolerate continuous disrespect. Sacrificing my boundaries for the sake of empathy was only hurting me. I learned a deep sense of self-love and my self worth rose dramatically. The knock-on effect this had for my children has been amazing. They’re growing up now having a strong momma who knows her worth and won’t tolerate bad behaviour any longer.

Boundary setting has been a powerful experience and one that I have used in not just in my personal life but also my professional life. Ruairi’s techniques have healed past trauma from my childhood and changed the trajectory of my life, from the familiar patterns to a life where I am in control of the future. I am no longer a prisoner of past conditioning. I am a strong confident woman in the driver's seat of my future.

Thank you Ruairi

My whole being is love and radiating light most of my days

5 50 Psychotherapist Consultation

Doing the work... is it worth it? One year ago I felt lost and broken... the soul was searching for love and joy in all wrong places... striving for people’s attention and appreciation... striving for love.

Physical body was weak, trapped in pain. Heart disconnected trapped in dysfunctional dynamics. Soul lost, covered under a bunch of lies and addicted to negative patterns.

Looking back my whole being was sending me clear signals, screaming it’s enough.

It was difficult to believe change is possible. It was impossible to believe that I’ll be able to leave the toxic relationship I was stuck in for years.

Only few months later and all is shifted. Investing in transformative inner work was one of the most rewarding decisions I’ve ever made. Ruairi is an exceptional leader and his expertise, knowledge and professionalism completely transformed my world.

Becoming a whole and authentic self takes work. There is a pain in growing, there is grief in peeling old layers of the false self. Relationships shift, people leave, and regroup occur. Mindset is challenged and changed. Deep healing happens. Ego dies to create space for who we truly are.

Am I fully fixed? No, it’s a work in progress. It’s a never-ending process.
Am I closer to the Divine? Yes I am. My whole being is love and radiating light most of my days. I won’t hide it, I’m loving my true me.

Doing inner work is priceless. Here are just few key points how the Happy whole program helped me:
* Setting boundaries
* Leaving people-pleasing attitude
* Understanding dysfunctional dynamics in romantic relationships, toxic patterns, abusive behaviors and codependency -all of that damage the authenticity.
* Building confidence and trust in myself
* Expressing my needs and wants
* Healing inner child
* Discovering dysfunctional family dynamics and changing fixed roles - this is big one
* Forgiving myself and others
* Release old trauma
* Giving permission to experience pleasure and have fun
* Spiritual enlightenment
* Changing mindset on how see money and abundance
* Stop punishing and judging myself
* Trusting the process of healing
* Opening the heart and trusting men again - I was abused for years by ex partner
* Loving myself and put myself first without feeling guilty
* Being aligned with my life purpose
* Balancing my energy - where and to whom I give my energy/attention?
* Staying compassionate to self and not rushing the process

I’m forever grateful to Ruairi for all the support I received during the program. It’s 💯x 💯 worth investing!

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.
