Within us all there lies a drive to develop and move forward - at times emotional conflicts and stresses interrupt that process. Whether these interruptions are leftover from early experiences, or responses to situational crises, psychotherapy can be a useful tool in addressing such blocks.
Elizabeth sees adults with a range of emotional, interpersonal, and psychological concerns. While many of Elizabeth's clients seek help for clinical conditions such as depression or anxiety, they may also be people without a clinical diagnosis.
This includes: people with chronic dissatisfaction with life; issues with self-esteem, boundaries, and assertiveness; people with questions of identity or sense of self; issues with sex and sexuality; and interpersonal or relationship problems.
ACT, Mindfulness, Process Oriented, Psychoanalytic, Psychodynamic, Self Psychology
Elizabeth offers psychodynamic psychotherapy, and is particularly interested in Psychoanalytic Self Psychology.
From this framework, therapist and patient work together over time towards a deep understanding of the patient's emotional life - this can lead to greater self-acceptance, a more cohesive 'sense of self,' as well as a reduction in symptoms.
Mindfulness and ACT techniques also may be offered to encourage reflection and self-awareness, and a capacity to manage difficult emotions.
Elizabeth holds a Masters degree in Clinical Psychology and is registered with the Psychology Board of Australia. She is a Member of the Australian Psychological Society, and the APS College of Clinical Psychologists.
Elizabeth is involved with regular discussion groups and reading groups, as well as ongoing supervision, and attendance at various training and professional development events throughout the year.
Elizabeth has spent the last 18 years immersed in the field of psychology, from theory to research, teaching, and practice.
She has experience treating patients with a variety of presenting issues, and has worked in a number of settings including community mental health, university student counselling, drug and alcohol services, and private hospitals.
