Introducing Gloria

The GWHCC is excited to introduce our newest team member Gloria Lockyer!


Gloria has over 30 years’ worth of experience working in rural communities and is going to be providing general counselling and sexual assault counselling at the centre.


"I couldn’t think of working anywhere else in Kal than with Women. Working with women and empowering them to reach their full potential is a passion of mine. If our women are safe and well, then our children grow and flourish in our community. I have worked in community development in all areas for over 30 years in both private and public sectors. I am a narrative therapist at heart and use other evidence-based therapies such as CBT, DBT, Schema and EMDR in Counselling Practices, I am also in my final semester of Psychology Science.


Born in Port Hedland, I have lived the rural life for the most part, but today call Kalgoorlie home. I am a mother, grandmother and wife that loves baking bread, painting portraits and growing herbs. I love fishing, bush walks, exploring the reef and sitting in the sun in nature with a cup of tea.


I am a researcher currently completing a PhD in Health Science, looking at integrated models of care in the field of sexual assault, I am seeking more knowledge for the benefit of sharing it for better outcomes in our community. I am basically a tree hugger, loving earth care and sustainable practices in life. I believe Reuse, Recycle and Reduce is a great motto to live by. Taking an integrative approach to basically everything which values our people and planet, I believe even though is it the people that are important, we all need a healthy planet to nourish us in our lives. I believe you must “Be the change you want to see”.

Welcome Lily!

Please welcome our future Lawyer, Lily to the GWHCC team! Lily is working part time as a Client Services Officer. 

“I’m absolutely over the moon to be helping the Goldfields community as a Client Services Officer at GWHCC. I am currently studying externally my BA of Laws and I am a graduate of a Diploma of Performing Arts and Classical Cecchetti training.

Born in Kal, I grew up in tightknit mining towns such as Coolgardie, Port Hedland and Kalgoorlie, where I currently live with my family while I finish home renos on mine and my partner’s new house. In my spare time I love to read novels, experiment with tea, and go camping and fishing in Espo.

I pride myself on being an intuitive and calming presence, here to offer friendly advice to whoever would like it. I strongly believe in always seeing the best in people, and love celebrating when people accomplish the goals they set for themselves. I love listening to people’s life stories, in which life lessons I may learn myself are always embedded. My mantra is ‘practice makes progress, not perfection’.”

New Operations Coordinator

We are excited to welcome Yvette to our team. Yvette is our new Operations Coordinator, you can find her floating around the office and is available for all your baby holding needs!

"I am so excited to join the team as the GWHCC Operations Coordinator, as I have many years working in community services and advocacy for disability services. My passion is in all areas of women’s and children’s health which inspired me to start a nursing degree this year, with the end goal of becoming a midwife. Being a Kalgoorlie local and a mother of three incredible children who keep me very busy and surrounded by love (and lots of noise!) I understand the needs of my community. I’m a lover of music, cooking and am an avid reader in my spare time."
