Elizabeth Tupper

“I collaborate with people with people in safe, compassionate, non-judgemental and client-centred space.”

I support people with:

  • Anxiety and mood disorders (including depression and OCD)
  • Trauma and abuse (including childhood trauma, abuse and neglect)
  • Post traumatic Stress and Complex Trauma
  • Personality Disorders, including Borderline Personality Disorder
  • Issues with Self-esteem, emotional dysregulation and sensitivity
  • Binge Eating Disorder
  • Interpersonal/social difficulties/family issues
  • Sexuality and Gender Diversity
  • Issues with sleep
  • Grief and Loss
  • Adjustment difficulties, including those related to physical illness and aging
  • Stress, including executive and workplace stress.

I have experience working with adults with inner experiences and long-term patterns of behaviour that interfere with relationships, working life and ability to make the most out of life. Creating a safe, compassionate, non-judgemental and client-centred space is a central to my work.

I also have a strong interest in the intersection between mental and physical health (chronic illnesses, persistent pain, surgery), from my work in private and public hospital settings.

When not working as a psychologist I enjoy gardening, engaging in creative pursuits, and learning about life.


I am a clinical psychologist registered with Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).

  • Master of Psychology (Clinical), University of Melbourne
  • Advanced Graduate Diploma of Psychology (First Class Honours), University of Melbourne
  • Graduate Diploma of Psychology, University of Melbourne
  • Bachelor of Economics, Australian National University

Therapeutic Approaches

I draw on a range of evidence based trauma-informed therapeutic approaches that suit the person and their goals. The type of treatment can range from brief, focused treatment for acute symptoms or problems, to long-term therapy for trauma, relationship issues, or persistent life challenges. 

Initially, therapy focuses on building a strong therapeutic and collaborative working relationship, developing insight and utilising clinically-proven approaches to alleviate acute symptoms. Over time, we will collaboratively find an approach that allows you to understand patterns of thinking and behaviours that adversely impact you making the most of life and your general well-being.

Therapeutic approaches include Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), Schema therapy, Motivational Interviewing (MI), Attachment-based approaches, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness-based approaches, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Compassion Focused Therapy and Psychodynamic approaches. 

My therapeutic work is informed by a career that has encompassed experience in the creative and arts industries, the education and government sectors, and working as an executive and as an economist.
