Registered Psychologist

Sarah is a registered general psychologist who has completed a Master of Psychology (Counselling) at the University of Queensland. She is experienced in the clinical assessment, diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of mental health issues, including anxiety, depression, trauma, and adolescent issues. Her passion is working with couples, assisting them to reconnect and work towards developing closer, stronger and more secure relationships through Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). Sarah has worked with couples experiencing relationship distress, difficulties blending step-families, and sexual dysfunction.

It is her aim to support people to overcome struggles, live more fully, and develop enhanced self-compassion, irrespective of adversity, by providing evidence-based treatments that utilise a strengths-based, client centred, collaborative approach.

Upon discovering EFT, Sarah has been dedicated to learning and embracing the model, eagerly undertaking training, as well as ongoing professional development in this area. Sarah is a member of the Australian Psychological Society. Her research areas at university included examining the importance of religion in couple relationships and how relationship standards held about religion may impact couples.
