Sarah works to provide a safe and supportive environment where individuals can explore their
feelings, thoughts and concerns in a way that is specific to them and is strength-focused. She
recognises the value of a genuine and warm therapeutic relationship and strives to work
collaboratively with clients and their families to provide them with the support needed to create the
changes that they would like to see. Sarah works with children, adolescents, and young adults, as
well as parents who would like support with concerns related to parenting.
Sarah has experience working across public, private and educational settings, with individuals from a
wide variety of backgrounds. She also currently works in the Education Sector and therefore has an
in-depth understanding of the difficulties that children can face in these settings, and the relevant
systems and procedures that apply in schools.
Sarah utilises evidence-based therapeutic approaches to support clients to achieve their goals for
therapy. She incorporates both the Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment
Therapy frameworks, as well as mindfulness-based strategies and applies them in a way that is
strength-based and tailored to the individual person. Sarah is also undertaking a Master of Applied
Behavioural Analysis and is able to provide consultations on behaviours of concern or on supporting
individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
