Bio of Presenter – Linda Elsey

I spent 25 years in the private enterprise within the information technology sector. In

this field, I held a variety of positions culminating in IT Manager, Project Manager

and others.

I have a private practice at Wyee and have been in the professional field practising

for many years. I use a variety of modalities and techniques and have treated

countless number of clients presenting with a host of different traumas, issues and

crisis situations.

I currently contract for the NSW Corrective Services facilitating eleven-week

programs with offenders.

I served for six years as a board member of the Professional Counselling

Association PCA NSW/ACT Inc. and was also the Convenor of the PCA Central

Coast Branch for most of that time.
