Biography - Sarah Scupham
Successfully completing Honours in Psychology in 2014, Sarah relocated to rural Queensland to help children and families in the NGO sector. Since then, she completed a Masters of Clinical Psychology and gained experience in both private practice and in the public sector for Queensland Health.
Sarah is especially interested in working with children and with couples. In helping children and adolescents, she has deep understanding and working experience with behavioural problems, sleep problems, mood and anxiety disorders, and family relationship difficulties.
She has treated adults and couples presenting with relationship distress, depression, anxiety, stress, and suicidal ideation.
Sarah is trained in a number of evidence-based interventions including Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), Schema therapy and Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples. Sarah aims to build a strong working alliance with her clients, as she believes this is central in achieving change in therapy.
