Caitlin Sopp
Clinical Psychologist
BSc (Hons), MPsych (Clin)

Caitlin is a Clinical Psychologist working in private practice whose passion is working with people as they negotiate the challenges of pre-conception, pregnancy, birth and parenting. She has been working in the infant and perinatal mental health field since 2015. She is also a mother to twin toddlers and appreciates the unique challenges that arise for multiple birth families and children who have spent time in NICU / SCN. She understands that for many people pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period are very different to the images they saw on Instagram. Issues she assists with include fertility, miscarriage, stillbirth, pregnancy, birth trauma, premature birth, grief and loss, parent-child bonding, depression, anxiety and parenting support.

Caitlin aims to create a safe space free from judgement where clients can allow themselves to be vulnerable and process their experiences. Her hope is over the course of therapy she can assist individuals to heal from their traumas, build their confidence in their abilities as a parent and regain the joy that may have been temporarily lost due to challenging situations. Caitlin’s style is warm and approachable, she presents as a genuine person and likes to utilise humour in sessions. She works from a relational attachment informed framework and utilises the approaches of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) and has completed further training to provide Rapid Eye-Movement Desensitisation (EMDR).
