Accredited Social Worker, Counsellor
Elizabeth has a breadth of experience working with individuals and families across the lifespan. Elizabeth works with clients experiencing many life challenges and specialises in counselling adolescents and families, particularly those formed through adoption, out of home care, blended and separated families, or where there has been early childhood trauma. This extends to working with clients experiencing infertility and those caught in behaviours stemming from unresolved childhood crisis. Elizabeth provides family therapy for those who need a little extra support in their relationships. She also provides support to people experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss, and personal and work-related stress.
Elizabeth has worked with not for profit, federal and state government agencies, and EAP companies, and brings to her practice an understanding of complex family dynamics and the systems around them. She is a qualified Workplace Assessor and Trainer and has trained and assessed in many settings including child protection, government agencies and the education sector.
Elizabeth’s practice is guided by a commitment to a number of key therapies and approaches that support relationships, and that are client centred. These include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dyadic Developmental Therapy (DDT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), with a focus on strengths-based practice and attachment theory.
