Biography - Sarah Scupham
Successfully completing a Bachelor's degree in Psychology with Honours in 2014, Sarah relocated to rural Queensland to help children and families in the community sector for two years. To gain further knowledge and experience in Clinical Psychology, she went on to study a Master of Clinical Psychology and gained experience in both private practice and in the public sector for Queensland Health.
Sarah works with people across all ages. She is interested in working with individuals experiencing problems with anxiety and panic, mood problems, life stress and adjustment, and those who have experienced trauma. She also enjoys helping adults with interpersonal problems, relationship issues, and low self-esteem, and is passionate about working with couples on building stronger relationship bonds through emotional intimacy.
Sarah is trained in a number of evidence-based interventions including Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Schema therapy, and Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT). Sarah aims to build a strong working alliance with her clients, as she believes this is central in achieving change in therapy.
