Sarah is a registered Psychologist with 16 years of clinical experience in a variety of areas. She also has a post-graduate diploma in Systemic Family Therapy. The early part of her career was in the field of bereavement for the leading UK child bereavement charity, Winston’s Wish. She then worked in UK schools implementing a project aimed at improving mental health in students and teachers.
After having children of her own, Sarah became interested in the field of perinatal mental health. Upon returning to Australia she began working with perinatal service, The Raphael Centre. After relocating to a regional town, Sarah set up her own practice focusing on clients in the perinatal period. She works on the Start Talking program and is passionate about ensuring those in regional or remote areas have access to good mental health care. A couple of years ago, Sarah took a break from clinical work to become a qualified pre/post-natal yoga teacher, and now teaches a few classes a week.
Sarah’s clinical work is underpinned by Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Systemic Family Therapy.
