009 Deaf Not Daft with Ruth Fogg
ABOUT THIS EPISODE –
Ruth suffered profound deafness following a car accident as a young girl. For many years she lived with a head full of limiting beliefs not Unlocking Her Hidden Confidence until she was in her 30’s.
In this episode, Ruth talks about growing up in a world of silence; relying upon lip reading to get by and how as technology advanced, a newfound confidence emerged to help Ruth ‘Believe To Achieve’.
Ruth’s passion for ensuring teenagers and young adults learn to understand themselves so they can break free from limiting and negative beliefs imposed upon us from generations before us, is inspiring!
Ruth shares her top tips on how to “reframe, see something differently”. Together we talk about the importance of our young adults learning Life Skills.
Are negative beliefs steering you off course?
“Self Understanding – Work out which messages are real and those that are not. Set your own beliefs”
ABOUT RUTH FOGG-
Ruth’s hidden confidence was not unlocked until she was in her thirties. After a childhood accident she was left profoundly deaf in one ear and severely deaf in the other. She sincerely believed that because she was deaf, she was daft and had the evidence to prove it! Due to bullying at school, she avoided wearing her hearing aid. Life changed when she did a Diploma in Counselling Skills and her confidence soared as did her career in youth work -Principal Youth Officer in the London Borough of Ealing, Chairperson of the Centre of Youth Work Studies at Brunel University, a Trustee of Europe’s largest YMCA and she was even an Ofsted Inspector! She was awarded an Honorary Fellowship from Brunel so now she had the evidence that she was not so daft after all!
