Be Your Own Counsellor & Coach – Launch of New Site

Latest-News-from-BYOCCWelcome to the launch of my new site – please click on the link below:

Be Your Own Counsellor & Coach

I really hope that you like the layout of the new site with its magazine format. I will be continuing with my self-help book recommendations, alongside extra topics of the arts – creativity, memoirs and more. The Recommended Best Self-Help Books – By Topic, continues and is constantly being enlarged. I’ve also expanded the About section as many of you have been so kind as to ask about my health. I’ve added more personal detail than before for those who’d like to know a bit more about me. I really hope that you enjoy your visit as it has been an exciting project for me – learning about self-hosting and all it entails. I’m still learning – so forgive any teething problems!

I’ve managed to transfer everything across from this site, including the comments, which I’m really pleased about. If you’d like to look, here is a list of the latest posts which I’ve had to publish, ahead of the launch, for the new site to work properly:

Thanks so much for taking the time to read this and perhaps heading over to the new place and signing up. Please let me know your thoughts – feedback will be most welcome.

More will be on the way on this personal blog soon and I’ll continue to offer monthly updates here for the new site too. Also, links will always be available in the menu above – ‘Self-Help Resource’ – for all Be Your Own Counsellor & Coach posts.

Thanks so much!

Listeners are now praising her album of cover songs, 'Inspired By,' just released in January 2016, for its haunting beauty. As a freelance writer, she specialises in self-help but is also currently working on some psychological suspense fiction.

  3. Hi Ruth ~ finally got over here — wow… your site looks great… and I just linked over to the new “About” section — you dear sweet soul — i had no idea what your challenges entailed… I can relate in so many ways… Always here if you need to lean – and just signed up for direct email notices as I was not seeing your posts in my reader for some reason… I know you will make this site something wonderful. Much Love and Blessings ~ x R
