About

Sarah is a Mental Health Social Worker and Sensorimotor Art Therapist, with additional training in Hakomi (mindfulness-based somatic psychotherapy), Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Narrative Therapy.
‘Sensorimotor’ refers the role of sensation and movement. Art is used to feel into how things are, and how they could be. Activities support closer, and safer, connection with your body. This approach is particularly helpful for complex trauma, emotion regulation, identity reclamation and supporting growth and expansion. No art skills required.
Sarah’s approach is strongly influenced by attachment and trauma theories, and therefore relationship is seen as key in the therapeutic process. She provides a non-judgmental environment, where people’s stories are treated with care and respect. Medicare rebate avl. www.sarahbrookecounselling.com; www.insidethisriver.com
