Diana Cornish is a clinical psychologist with a special interest in women’s mental health issues, particularly during the perinatal period. Diana has worked across various mental health’s settings for over fifteen years including community mental health, inpatient, outpatient and private practice (specifically with mothers and infants).

Diana has also experience and training in working in the areas of infertility and perinatal loss.

Diana believes it is a privilege to work with mothers, infants and their families at this crucial stage of life. She approaches therapy with a non-judgemental and collaborative perspective.
