Liz Brnjak

My background is in Social Work, Psychology, Family Therapy and Organisational Management. I have 15 years experience working with children, young people, adults and their families on assisting them to achieve their goals in life and find solutions to tricky life dilemmas. I have worked at both the Royal Children’s Hospital Mental Health Service & Austin Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS).


Some of the reasons people may choose to book an appointment include:

  • trying to make decisions in your life (having a baby, whether to end a relationship or start one, career choices and where you might be headed in your life)

  • grief and loss (perhaps an end of a relationship, death of someone close, illness)

  • anxiety and depression

  • eating disorders

  • child behavioural problems

  • substance use and dependence that has affected your life

  • managing stress and change


Individual, parent and family psychotherapy and coaching

I offer individual, parent and/or family sessions, sometimes called counseling, psychotherapy and coaching for matters that are important to them. Sometimes we are faced with tricky dilemmas that affect our lives. Seeking additional support can be helpful in exploring barriers and finding solutions that work for you.  

I also offer specialist mental health assessment and therapy for children and young people who may be battling with difficulties such as anxiety, depression and substance use. I work with parents to support them with regards to their children and provide practical strategies and tools that work. Finally, I offer family therapy where difficulties such as family conflict, shared parenting and communication might be an issue.


Professional and organisational consultation

I provide professional supervision to professionals, coaching and organisational consulting to companies who may wish to evaluate their practices and achieve desired outcomes and improve staff morale and retention.
