About Green Sea Coaching
Ruth Rood runs the coaching practice at Green Sea.
Hello, I’m Ruth Rood and I’m a life coach.
In 2005, after a career break taken to bring up my children, I began training with the Coaches Training Institute to become a Life Coach, as I was eager to help people, especially women, re-focus and get their life back on track when things seemed to be going awry. At the end of the training, I was awarded my Coaching Certificate (ICF Accredited Coaching Training Programme) in Co-Active Coaching. In Co-Active Coaching, the Client and Life Coach work together in partnership, but always on the Client’s terms.
I live with my husband, son and three gorgeous cats. For fun and to keep fit, I kick-box and am a 4th Dan Black Belt.

As a mother of four and now a student, coaching has made me prioritise my responsibilities. It has made me focus and make the most of enjoying the now, so that in 10 or 20 years when I look back. I will not have any regrets
Frequently Asked Questions
Case Study One
Client A came to see me in a state of exhaustion. Despite having a full-time job and a young family, she was the Go-To girl for her extended family and was being pulled in several different directions at once.
We looked at the effect this was having on her life and I asked her to draw me two pictures. The first was her life as it was and the second was her life as she wanted it to be. I asked Client A how she thought she could get from the first picture to the second. At first, she wasn’t sure, but then the ideas flowed thick and fast, and she decided to implement them that very day.
Within a couple of months, Client A had achieved her objective and was living the life she had pictured. She was much happier, sleeping better and had lots more energy.
Case Study Two
Client B had been in business for several years, only reacting to events, never pre-empting them. She had never set any business goals for herself and was consequently getting rather bored with her work. She wanted to take charge of her business and bring the excitement she had first felt when she began her company back.
Together, we identified a large business goal. Large goals can be a bit daunting, so we wrote it down on a piece of paper and put a circle round it. Many things had to be put in place before the goal could even be tackled, so we drew lines from the circle to represent each of those tasks. Client B’s Spidergram was taking shape before her eyes and she started to get excited about her business again.
At the end of the first Life Coaching session, Client B chose just a few of these things to tackle. Then the next week, she chose a few more, and so on. All during our time together, Client B was working towards the large goal she had set for herself at the start, and which had at that time, seem unattainable. With my help, she achieved that goal, found a new enthusiasm for her business, and was set for success.
