Elsebeth Petersen is the Director of Casley-Smith International (Australia) and Co-Director of Casley-Smith International (Australasia), both of which offer health professionals accredited training in the management of lymphoedema.*

Elsebeth trained as a therapist and instructor, directly under the guidance of Dr Judith Casley-Smith, who together with her world renowned husband started the first lymphoedema association in the world (Lymphoedema Association Australia). The Casley-Smith (C-S) course in Lymphoedema Management was the first such course in Australia. Elsebeth has continued and progressed their educational work since 1998.
With over 40 years experience in education (primary; secondary; tertiary; public and private), Elsebeth’s passion for facilitating learning has not abated. Most recently working overseas with translators and communicating via creative and spontaneous methods, Elsebeth’s capacity to read and reach her students is paralleled by her extensive reputation and the demand for her classes in the East. Having been born in Hong Kong, teaching in the East has been personally fulfilling and welcomed as a return “home.”

Elsebeth has been running lymphoedema training courses for over 15 years and has trained hundreds of health workers to become qualified lymphoedema practitioners.

Elsebeth has been in clinical practice since 1993 and offers all aspects of DLT, but focuses mainly on manual lymphatic drainage. The practice aims to complement services provided by Australia’s health system. Both public and private patients are welcomed. Clients are referred on, if similar services are available freely, or when treatment lies beyond her scope of practice e.g. investigative tests, wound care etc. Elsebeth is listed on the National Lymphoedema Practitioner Register.
