Doctor Erin Bowe

Clinical Psychologist & Author

I’m Dr Erin Bowe. I’m a Clinical & Perinatal Psychologist & Author of More Than a Healthy Baby: Finding Strength and Growth After Birth Trauma.

 I live in rural Victoria, Australia with my husband, 5 & 3 year old daughters, two cavalier king charles spaniels and a flock of chickens who are all named after film noir divas. 

I’m not currently using social media as life has simply been SO MUCH BETTER without it. 

You can read about my 8 week detox and the impact on my mood, business, relationships and productivity HERE and follow along on my blog or sign up for a weekly bite of tips, thoughts, lessons and musings on my mailing list HERE


My first book, More than a Healthy Baby (published by The Kind Press) which is available  HERE

My second book, Motherhood, Mental Health & Social Media is due for release early 2022.


Soulful Strategy for Psychologists – a 10 week mastermind for Psychologists (& similar professions!) to to learn to make the shift from shrinking violet to tall poppy. I mentor you in how to lose your visibility BS, and burnout-proof your business. I teach you how to create & sell courses,  get paid to write & speak  and stop trading time for money.  The next round will launch in 2022. You can follow on my blog or sign up for my mailing list HERE

I support over 2650* students who’ve enrolled in my birth trauma & perinatal anxiety & depression courses. I just recently enrolled 760 of them in a 48 hour period (which I’m quite proud of given I stopped social media)

Birth Trauma Training for Birth Workers is an accessible and affordable course for birthing professionals. We have birth workers in over 40 countries, and 12 languages represented. The course is also endorsed by the Australian College of Midwives for 16 CPD points. Find it HERE

Supporting partners through birth trauma is the complementary masterclass for birth workers wanting further guidance on how to support partners. 

More Than a Healthy Baby, the online course is another super practical, affordable option for parents wanting tools to cope with birth trauma. Find it HERE

For parents and birth workers wanting support for peri and postnatal anxiety and depression, I also have a short course HERE with $1 from each sale being donated to PANDA


**Please note that I’m not currently taking new counselling clients. My offerings for 2021 are limited to supervision and mentoring only**

I grew up on the apple isle in a city (yes, technically Devonport is a city) once described by Lonely Planet as a “sedentary, mildly menacing place”. I then moved to Hobart for university where I managed to live in not just one, but two houses where a murder-suicide was committed. I finally made the decision to move from St Kilda to the country when I came home one day, exhausted and suffering with morning sickness to find not just one but five men urinating on my front gate!

Sadly, I can only speak one language but convince myself I can actually speak two, because I don’t need the subtitles on for Ken Loach movies. I grew up playing English interpreter for Glaswegian parents, but I cannot roll my ‘R’s.

My experience in psychology is pretty wide ranging. I’ve worked with people as young as 9 months and as old as 90 years. There have been mums, murderers, Olympic athletes, chess champions, sex workers, and CEOs. I believe that everyone has a story, and am always interested in listening to yours.
