Ruth Cross

MPsych&Couns, MA, BA

● Psychotherapist

● Holistic Counsellor

Ruth completed a Master of Psychotherapy and Counselling with Distinction at Western Sydney University in 2023 and is a Certified Practising Registrant of the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA).

Navigating midlife prompted Ruth to follow a new career pathway from documentary filmmaking to psychotherapy and counselling. Experiencing her menopausal transition while undertaking her training as a therapist led Ruth to focus her research and clinical practice on providing specialist support to help women navigate their emotional, psychological and spiritual states of being that arise during the physiological changes of menopause.

Ruth recognises every woman’s experience of menopause is as individual as she is. Her therapeutic approach is person-centred, meaning she is led by her client’s needs and lived experience. Her background, supported by a lifelong personal yoga practice combined with her humanistic lens, brings a deep and holistic understanding of the midlife transition from perimenopause to menopause and beyond.
