Sarah McMurtrie

Counselling Psychologist

PsyBA Board Approved supervisor

Sarah is passionate about approaching mental health from a holistic perspective. She has worked with individuals of all ages, couples and families in community, school, corporate EAP, and private practice settings. Through this experience, Sarah has focused her practice on treatment with adolescents (16 years +) and adults, with a special interest in recovery from trauma both short and long term.

Sarah believes that therapy provides an opportunity for profound positive change through understanding and examining our experiences more deeply. Through her training in Counselling Psychology, Sarah places a strong emphasis on the importance of the therapeutic relationship, built on safety and respect.

Sarah is an accredited Emotion-Focused Therapist (EFT) through the Australian Institute of Emotion Focused Therapy and believes that attending to and reprocessing emotionally painful past experiences has a liberating and transformative effect on previously debilitating and stuck behaviour patterns. Sarah enjoys assisting her clients on a pathway of true healing, supporting them as whole and capable individuals, not simply a cluster of symptoms.

Additionally, Sarah uses a variety of other approaches to support clients including EMDR,  Flash Technique, Internal Family Systems (IFS), and CBT.

Areas that Sarah works with include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Anger Management
  • Adjustment and Trauma disorders
  • Existential issues
  • Childhood Abuse
  • Vocational and Workplace issues
  • Self Esteem
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Stress
  • Grief and Loss
  • Relationships

Please be aware, for new and existing clients Sarah does not provide documents/letters/reports for legal or court purposes.
