Clinical Psychologist

Sara is a Clinical Psychologist who, since the start of her career in 2006, has had a strong interest in supporting individuals with eating disorders, eating difficulties and body image
concerns. Sara has worked with clients struggling with eating disorders in both inpatient and outpatient settings, and in both group and individual treatment. Sara’s therapeutic style is warm and compassionate and starts with wanting to develop a deep understanding of what has contributed to someone entering therapy. Sara understands that people entering treatment for an eating disorder can experience significant fear and ambivalence about change. Sara is dedicated to creating a space where her clients feel comfortable to explore what areas of their lives may not be working for them. Sara hopes her therapy will assist in empowering people to work towards living a healthy, balanced and meaningful life.

Sara has had training and experience in a number of therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Interpersonal
Psychotherapy, Cognitive Analytic Therapy and Compassion Focused Therapy. For her clients with eating and body image difficulties Sara utilises evidence-based approaches such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Eating Disorders (CBT-E) and Specialist SupportiveClinical Management (SSCM) for Eating Disorders. Sara believes that families are an
essential source of support for clients during recovery and aims to involve them in treatment where possible.

In addition to her work in eating disorders Sara has also had extensive experience working with individuals struggling with mood and anxiety disorders including depression, bipolar
disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder and trauma. Sara also has a professional interest in assist people with relationship issues, perfectionism and parenting. Sara has a strong belief that recovery from an eating disorder is possible and feels honoured to be able to support individuals in their recovery journey.
