Who is Ruth?
It made me smile to write this like a dating profile but I think if you are reading this and/or thinking of working with me you should have a feel for what I am behind the professional credentials.
Down to earth, light hearted, cheeky and honest... I like yoga, red wine and music. In my free time, you'll often see me catching up with friends, going to a gig or movie, doing a yoga class or trying a new restaurant/bar and having a laugh.
I love my job and am always looking to grow, but I’m also all about balance so you won’t find me online 24/7, especially if I am somewhere near nature. I quit corporate life to become a digital semi nomad and embrace a lifestyle in line with my values of making a positive contribution to the world, working smarter not harder, freedom, variety and minimalism.
Like everyone else these days, I have lived overseas and love travelling. I try and get away as much as I can - at least one beach holiday and one culture holiday a year. But much as I love the city and exploring different cultures, getting to the beach or out for a hike is what keeps me grounded.
Even though I’m serious about yoga, Tantra and meditation, I love watching (some) sports, anime and art house films. I refuse to be pigeon holed!
I sing in the car, am a sucker for animals, and once made Jennifer Saunders laugh.
I was drawn to this work because I believe relationships define the quality of our lives and because of the impact it has had on my own life. People who are happy in their relationships and sexuality make the the world a better place for all living things.

I spent a long time thinking I had depression and anxiety and struggling in my relationship. My partner and were in a dynamic we didn’t understand. I knew something wasn’t right but I didn’t know what to do about it. Finally, after 17 years, our marriage ended badly even though we tried everything - books, therapy, counselling. We both hated who we had become and acted in ways we wouldn't have thought possible.
Now I know it doesn't have to be that way and I help other to not make the same, or different mistakes so that they can make the best decisions for themselves and feel free, alive and turned on by life and in their relationships.
Ruth Sowter is an Integrated Love, Sex and Relationships coach, writer, yoga teacher and speaker.
She has spent a decade and over 10,000 hours of teaching, studying and personal experience to create powerful offerings for people wanting to improve their intimate lives.
After a successful career in academia and research project coordination, Ruth discovered coaching and mindset work and eventually decided to share her obsession with the world, completing 600 hour certification with the Tantric Institute for Integrated Sexuality to become one of the top 5% of transformational coaches in sex, love and relationships in the world.
Her programs draw on her extensive and diverse experience and training both in the corporate and personal development worlds. Ruth integrates modern psychology and behavioural science with traditional wisdom from yoga, Tantra, and Tsoaism to get crystal clear on goals and desires, heal past emotional wounding, and release blockages, as any good coach will. What make her coaching different is that she works with the body AND the mind for deeper, more powerful results and shifts.
Ruth believes people are happy when they have great relationships (and hopefully great sex!) in their lives, and the more happy people there are in the world, the better place it will be for all living things.
