Dr Eleanor Baggott, Consultant Clinical Psychologist, Totara House

Facilitator: Dr. Bronwyn Dunnachie

Eleanor is a Clinical Psychologist originally from the UK. She has spent 5 years working at the Birmingham EIP Services before moving to New Zealand in 2015. Eleanor now works at Totara House, the EI service in Christchurch and really values  her work in EI, in particular she is interested in promoting stories of hope and recovery following psychosis, the importance of art and creativity in mental wellbeing, supporting families affected by psychosis, and using acceptance and mindfulness based approaches to help people make sense of their experiences and find new ways to live a valued life even with them.

In addition to her work in NZ, Eleanor has continued collaborating with colleagues in the UK who have written a book about recovering from a first episode of psychosis. You can find out more about the book here: https://www.routledge.com/Recovering-from-a-First-Episode-of-Psychosis-An-Integrated-Approach-to/Jackson-Baggott-Bernard-Clutterbuck-Ryles-Turner/p/book/9781138669208

Eleanor has been on the Exec of the NZEIPS since November 2015. She led the organisation of the 2017 EI Training Forum in Christchurch, and in 2018 she took on the Secretary role for the Society.

Outside of work Eleanor really loves exploring the amazing places of natural beauty that New Zealand offers, both close to Christchurch and across the country when she can. You might find her walking, biking, snowboarding, taking photos, or just sitting on a hillside taking in the view!
