Liz has been a practicing psychologist for over 40 years and is a member of the Australian Psychological Society and College of Health Psychologists. She has been actively assisting women and their families in managing
endometriosis for over 20 years. She has been part of the multidisciplinary team at the Endometriosis Care Centre of Australia (ecca) since its inception in 1998 and facilitated the Endo Support Group for ecca for over 10
years.Over this time, Liz has developed a deep understanding of the issues faced by women with endometriosis and has developed strategies to support them to build resilience and feel cared for while learning how to navigate
their way through the endo experience. She is also keenly aware of the experience shared by partners, families and especially mothers who often feel tremendous guilt when they see their daughters in pain. She feels
it is important for everyone involved in these significant family relationships to also have emotional and practical support.Liz produced the self-help tape ‘Living Well with Endometriosis’ in conjunction with Professor Carl Wood
(now deceased). Liz has also spoken at many events designed to raise public awareness of endometriosis and the psychological impact it can have on women’s lives. She continues to provide counselling support through
her practice Living Well Services through face-to-face, Skype, FaceTime and telephone sessions. She also provides online counselling support to clients all over Australia, as well as in New Zealand, Canada, United States and the
UK.Liz brings perspective, experience, and good humour to her work so that people can learn about themselves and develop new coping strategies in a way that is positive and self-affirming.
