Dr Zoe Hazelwood

Dr Zoe Hazelwood is a Clinical Psychologist. She completed her postgraduate training at Griffith University with an emphasis on couples experiencing relationship difficulties and families in turmoil. She is currently completing the requirements needed to gain certification as a therapist with the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focussed Therapy (ICEEFT). Zoe predominantly works from an attachment perspective and utilises both emotionally focussed therapeutic (EFT) approaches and cognitive behaviour therapy with couples. She also draws on cognitive behavioural techniques and insight-oriented psychotherapy when working with individuals, depending on the client’s needs. Rather than utilising one particular orientation when working with clients, Zoe typically adopts an eclectic approach based on the issues presented. She works with her clients to determine the course of action that will best suit their needs.

Some of the issues that Zoe can help clients with include:

  • Relationship difficulties
  • Individuals dealing with recent separation or loss
  • Problem-solving
  • Family discord
  • Child behaviour problems and parenting practices
  • Individuals with attachment-related distress
  • Professional supervision

Zoe has taught at QUT for the past 16 years and her research interests include interpersonal relationships and promoting happy and healthy coupling. She has numerous publications and conference presentations in this area. As a trained clinician, Zoe also has experience delivering psychometric assessment and psychometric report-writing.

Zoe is a registered Medicare provider and private health insurance provider. She is registered to provide psychological services for Assure Programs, AccessEAP and Garrison Health. She is a National Committee member of the APS Psychology of Relationships Interest Group. She is also a member of the International Association for Relationship Research.

Zoe is available to see clients on Thursdays (4.30-8.30pm).
