Cath Corcoran Psychologist

Cath Corcoran

Conception and Fertility Specialist
Perinatal, Birth and Postnatal Consultant


Cath is a successful Conception and Fertility Specialist and Perinatal, Birth & Postnatal Consultant. She is an experienced Psychologist in both clinical and counselling settings.

After 15 years as a psychologist within psychiatric settings working for major hospitals in rural areas, and for The Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne; in addition private practice, Cath has been called to exclusively work with and has a passion to assist couples wanting to have children.

She works with females, males and couples who are trying to conceive. Both in conjunction with IVF or looking to start a family and have been trying naturally.

Her work is not limited to those who have never conceived, many women she sees have experienced miscarriages and/or have already had a child and may be finding it difficult to conceive or carry another child.

Cath breathes fresh air into any presenting issues with her therapeutic approach and holistic view when working with people. She is a firm believer in the mind-body connection and treating the body as a whole not as isolated systems.

As a psychologist, she feels her role is to help people find their own answers within themselves; inspiring and supporting them to make shifts, to change and to transform.

Cath believes many people still feel that conception and having a baby is purely physical. Her aim is to shift that paradigm, and her work has highlighted that the mind and body are connected and that once people are conscious and aware of the psychological impact, they are able to shift some long-standing difficulties and ultimately open them up to conceive and have a baby.

Cath has a passion for working with preconception, conception and fertility/infertility. Although her work also includes but is not limited to:

  • Secondary Infertility
