Hello, I’m Sarah. I am a dedicated bodywork therapist and psychosomatic therapy practitioner with a deep interest in exploring the psycho-emotional relationship we have with our body.
My interest in the health field commenced in 2003 with studies in Medical Science at the University of Wollongong. Not long after completing my degree, I felt drawn to emergency service work in the NSW Police. Following a diagnosis of major depression and PTSD after 9 years of service, along with psychotherapy sessions, I explored a variety of bodywork and holistic bodymind therapy modalities which I found boosted my mental, emotional, physical and spiritual well-being in a unique way. I was offered new perspectives and the combination of modalities brought a sense of relief and reassurance to my experiences. My interest in the health field was reignited and I have since undertaken training in a number of modalities to build a new career specialising in bodymind focused therapy.
I am a member of the Association of Massage Therapists (AMT) and the International Association of Psychosomatic Therapy (INTAPT) and am committed to my ongoing personal and professional development to best serve my clients and their needs.
why i do what i do
To have the opportunity to facilitate an improvement in someone’s ability to engage in and interact with life after being compromised through feelings of restriction or pain, or mental ill-health such as anxiety / depression is a big reason behind my why.
I enjoy being with and getting to know my clients as they find the ability to allow a relaxation of previously held tension and are able to allow a freeing of movement and expansion of space within the body, bringing with it new information, realised strengths and resources from their experiences.
