Dr Erin Seeto is a Clinical Psychologist, based in Sydney, and has worked in various settings including hospitals, community, local government, education, specialist services and private practice across the UK and Australia.
Following her Masters in Social Work in Scotland, Erin worked within the field of learning disability and mental health for a number of years. Moving to London, Erin then pursued her Doctorate in Psychology which is where her interest in adjustment, identity and post-traumatic growth developed, while working with individuals who had experienced acquired brain injuries.
Erin’s additional interest in perinatal mental health led her to Gidget Foundation Australia shortly after settling in Sydney. After considerable perinatal training, Erin was motivated to continue this work on a permanent basis.
Erin’s recent experience within this field has focused on adjustment, grief, loss, pregnancy and post-traumatic growth. With this experience, Erin sees the importance of increasing awareness of both women’s health and perinatal mental health issues where a small change can have a substantial positive impact for clients and their family.
In her current role as Clinical Team Leader with Gidget Foundation Australia, Erin’s main focus is on the development and delivery of continuing supervision and professional development opportunities in perinatal mental health for all members of the multi-disciplinary team.
