About Ruth

I'm Dr Ruth Mary Allan, Certified Brain Health Coach and High Performance Coach

I want to help you achieve great things.  To optimise your brain health.  To boost your energy and performance.  To activate and harness your full potential so that you can achieve your goals and dreams.  That is my passion.  That is my mission.  Let me help you and be your guide on your journey to transformational growth.


You can achieve far more than you give yourself credit for.  To achieve your dreams requires clarity and focus and it starts right here.

Ruth is passionate about helping adults and children optimise their brain health and wellbeing so that they can activate and harness their full potential to achieve their goals and dreams.  Ruth provides a safe, non-judgemental coaching environment along with the supporting tools and techniques to help you take back control of your wellbeing and boost your performance and potential.

Ruth is most proud of the ripple effect aligning with her passion and purpose has had on her family.  In April 2018, after returning from ski touring across the European alps with her husband Dave, she helped her dad re-ignite his passion of telling his children's stories of Peter and Paula Pixie.  In April 2018 together with her dad and mum, she founded the company Peter and Paula Pixie Ltd, sourced the illustrator and helped build the website detailing the adventures of Peter and Paula Pixie.  In May 2018 she helped her mum climb a mountain - aged 75 years old.  On Christmas day 2018 and 12 days late she gave birth to her daughter Lilly.  Excitingly, after 40 years, on 28 October 2019 her dad’s first book “Peter Pixie Visits the Rescue Centre,” written by Michael J Woodward and illustrated by Alison Lingley, will be published. 

In 2001, Ruth was the first in the world to image skin cancer using Terahertz technology and the inventor on two patents as part of her PhD on Terahertz Imaging and Spectroscopy Applied to Dermatology.  In 2007, for her research in Terahertz technology she was recognised as a role model for Women in Optics in the USA by SPIE - the International Society for Optics and Photonics and for Women in Information, Technology, Electronics and Communication by the UK Department of Trade and Industry.  She is currently a judge at the Imperial College Faculty of Natural Science Make a Difference competition.

Ruth is a Certified Brain Health Coach through the Institute for Better Health and Amen Clinics, a Certified High Performance Coach™ through the High Performance Institute and a Brain Health MD Brand Ambassador.  She is also a Professional Speaker, Mountain Leader and Ski Leader.  Her goal is to establish a Brain Health Imaging Clinic and supporting Wellbeing Warrior Academy and Community in the UK and Europe.

In her spare time Ruth enjoys road cycling, mountaineering, climbing and ski touring.  She loves the outdoors, is married to Dave and has a baby daughter called Lilly.

Detailed bio

Les Brown, World's Premier Motivational Speaker
Catherine Ciesla, Associate Professor, College of San Mateo, California

The high performance coaching I received over the 12 sessions I was with Ruth, allowed me to assess what my focus and purpose was in my work, how I wanted to show up for my family and what I wanted to get out life. The program gave me routines and tools that helped me developed habits to help me be successful. A particular challenge I have is the initiation and organization of large work projects. Ruth showed me tools to help me manage and organize my projects and also helped me changed my mindset towards projects overall. The experience was tremendously helpful and I whole heartedly recommend the series.

Jeremy Davis, General Manager, Downstream Process Integration, Shell

I found the coaching to be one of those life defining investments in me.  It certainly was not cheap and I remember thinking to myself can it possibly be worth that sum?  However, having jumped in with both feet, I truly can say that the coaching has made me happier, more relaxed, more focussed and certainly 8 to 10 times more effective... it really has and it could for you as well, so stop hesitating and jump on in too.

Jane Caddick - Culture Change Expert

I’ve spent the past eight months being coached by Ruth and I can honestly say it has changed my life.  Following a high performance model, Ruth has guided me through my development as an individual and as a professional.  If asked, I would whole-heartedly recommend Ruth to anyone seeking to change and improve. Thank you Ruth for enriching my life.  Ruth is a superb coach.  Give it a go, you'll be blow away by the results!

Dean King, Technology Entrepreneur

The advice Ruth has given me in through her Wellbeing training has allowed me to reassess what it was that I was doing and to declutter my life from so many things that were either not necessary, or simply being done to prop up a badly planned approach to many other things I had been attempting to manage.  Ruth had chosen the session well. The next 40 minutes were the best 40 minutes I spent this year.  I recognised myself in the description Ruth gave of her own experiences.  I can’t thank Ruth enough of such timely and well targeted advice.  Give it a go and see for yourselves.

George J. Chanos, Former Attorney General of Nevada

As a guest at the “Share the Change” talks with Les Brown, I saw a number of rising stars in the speaking field.  One that I thoroughly enjoyed, was Ruth Mary Allan.  She lit up the room with her message of optimism, hope and action.  Ruth not only knows that - she practices it, by sharing her powerful message with others.

Melanie, Management Consultant

It's hard to pinpoint one specific area in my life or specific life event as the single catalyst, but I knew I needed to make a change.  My health, energy, work, being a mother and a partner seemed all to be requiring so much effort and I didn't feel I was giving the best of me on any front.  No matter if you're reticent or really eager, high performance coaching is a start in an exciting and clear pathway.  I highly recommend it.
