Dr Christine Ellisdon

Clinical Psychologist

BSocSc(FamilyStudies) Hons, DPsych(Clinical), MAPS

Therapeutic Approach


Christine believes that true psychological therapy is about healing not just about symptom reduction. She draws upon a person’s own inner wisdom and assists them in becoming more deeply connected to themselves and the world around them.


Her approach is collaborative and supportive and invites people to identify and explore the barriers effecting their daily functioning and preventing them from living a fulfilling life.  Such barriers may include unhelpful thought patterns and beliefs systems, difficult emotions, self-defeating behaviours and unresolved issues stemming from past life experiences.  Christine’s approach aims to empower people through increased insight and understanding while also providing opportunities to develop alternative ways of responding to the difficulties they are experiencing and relating to themselves and others.

Christine believes that self love is integral to wellbeing.  She therefore places special emphasis on strengthening the relationship that people have with themselves by assisting them in connecting with their heart, addressing negative self-beliefs and self-destructive, self-sabotaging tendencies.

Christine uses an integrative approach such that therapy is tailored to the needs of the person in a manner that honours their inner wisdom and the capacity for healing. She is respectful of individual differences while recognising the innate qualities we each possess that connect us all.  Christine is experienced and trained in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Schema Therapy, Internal Family Systems Therapy, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Somatic Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, and Emotion Focused Couples Therapy.
