Sarah Marshall (Registered Psychologist) completed her Bachelor of Science (Hon) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) at the University of Wollongong. Having spent two decades working in the mental health sector, Sarah has a broad range of experience, including in the private and community health sectors. She has spent time as a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Institute for Positive Psychology and Education (ACU), pursuing her research interests into areas such as compassion and mindfulness.
Within private practice Sarah enjoys supporting adults from diverse backgrounds with varied presentations. She draws on a wide range of evidence-based practices, tailored to suit the unique individual that she is supporting.
At the heart of therapy, she believes the relationship comes first and that we are fellow travellers, in that none of us is immune to human suffering, in all its rich forms. She also believes that to walk alongside another in their life journey, with openness, curiosity and compassion, is an honour. She hopes to leave people with skills that will allow them to live their best, full life, whatever that means for a particular person. Within the therapy room, Sarah hopes to impart key qualities such as curiosity, compassion, trust, honesty, as well as humour and lightness (when the situation affords). She looks forward to meeting you.
