Elly became a Relationship Counsellor and a new mother at the same time – which proved to be both a blessing and a curse! Acutely aware of the internal and between-them changes she and her husband experienced as they transitioned from partners to parents, over the next few years Elly noticed that her new-parent clients were also going through the same things at the same time.

She was on a mission.

Combining her psychology education and over 15 years clinical experience Elly has created an world-first evidence-based developmental model of the transition into parenthood which she is now teaching to birth, health and mental health professionals worldwide.

Elly is has been a columnist for Practical Parenting magazine, The Sydney Morning Herald and Melbourne Age and is Resident Relationship expert for Daily Life website.
