Elizabeth is a registered psychologist in private practice. She has worked in a variety of non-government and hospital settings for 12 years prior to joining the Gidget Team of Psychologists 3 years ago.
A major part of her work over those years has been in women’s health, with the focus in the last 7 years being with the perinatal population, treating and supporting mothers and fathers who are suffering from anxiety and depression; experiencing adjustment issues; and dealing with grief/loss.
Elizabeth continues to facilitate various behavioural change groups with men and women within a family safety framework, and is a Circle of Security trained group facilitator. With postgraduate studies in family systems therapy, couple therapy and clinical hypnotherapy, and currently studying a Masters in Depth Psychology in the USA, Elizabeth draws from a variety of modalities within an attachment and psychodynamically based framework.
She is passionate about empowering mothers and fathers to step on the path towards conscious and confident parenting, helping them cultivate a deeper understanding of the personal and interpersonal aspects that contribute to the challenges at this time.
