Sarah's task, as your therapist is to provide an environment that disrupts your current level of functioning and move you towards change and renewed progression. Clients come to counselling stuck and immobilized, unable to create something new in their lives. The repetition of stuck and unsatisfactory behaviours, thoughts and feelings is what leads most clients through my door. I utilise theoretical and practical interventions, through the observation of the client’s discrepancies, mixed messages, conflict, and incongruity in the client’s statements and behaviours within the counselling sessions.
I am a psychotherapist in private practice working online and in Sydney. I work with people on a range of issues including; anxiety and depression, trauma, childhood experiences of neglect, life transitions, and issues of substance abuse.

I use various therapeutic techniques including person centered approach, genograms, addictions, trauma and family systems. I have experience working with relationships, depression, anxiety, life stage changes, grief and loss and addictions.

Are you feeling anxious, stressed, confused, emotionally overwhelmed? Does life seem overwhelming, unfair, sad, unfulfilling, directionless, hopeless? Do you simply want more from life? You’re not alone. I endeavour to understand what is important for you, which means that I don’t have a one-size-fits-all approach. Using empathy and non-judgement, I listen to understand what life is like for you and to ‘get’ you - what you are thinking and feeling, how the events of life have impacted you, and what you want and need.

I am a compassionate 'Person Centered' Counsellor supporting you to re- learn how to develop an optimistic sense of self, helping you to understand the roots and cause of internal conflicts.

It takes time to change entrenched behaviours developed in your lifespan. The therapeutic process of counselling, enables change of unwanted behaviours - using practical ways, making better life choices, one step at a time in a private and safe space.

Sometimes things feel like they are too hard. Sometimes we may feel like we are 'stuck' because of a challenging situation or from a past pattern of behaviour that doesn't seem to let us go. Sometimes our thoughts seem to go around and around and take control of our actions. Sometimes, we just don't know which direction we need to head in, or want to head in, and why. These transitions in life need some time to process. And sometimes it feels like nobody understands us and we just need someone to talk to and to find a bit of grounding and presence.
