Senior Fertility Counsellor
Ruth Wilde is the Senior Fertility Counsellor at the Complete Fertility Centre in Southampton.
Ruth has worked as a counsellor for over sixteen years specialising in infertility since 2002. She originally trained at the Gestalt Centre in London in 1996 and went on to complete specialist training in relationship counselling to complement the work she does with couples facing infertility. She has worked in some of the leading infertility clinics in Birmingham and London helping both NHS and private patients through their treatment journeys from initial diagnosis to the end of treatment and beyond.
Ruth supports people facing infertility and helps them to cope with the ups and downs of treatment. She also helps single women, same sex couples and heterosexual couples prepare for treatment with donor gametes and will for some, help them to make decisions about either not to pursue treatment at all, or to stop when ‘enough is enough’.
Ruth is the current Chair of the British Infertility Counselling Association (BICA) and has been on BICA’s Executive Committee since 2008. Ruth was elected to the British Fertility Society’s (BFS) Executive as Counselling Representative in 2010. She represents both BFS and BICA’s interests, and infertility counselling generally, at national events and meetings.
