Sarah Edwards
Perinatal Psychologist

(BBiomedSc, BSc(Psychology), BBSc (Hons), M. Psychology (Educational & Developmental)

Sarah Edwards is a psychologist who works from her beautiful home clinic in Alderley (Brisbane, Queensland). Sarah’s therapeutic approach is largely integrative, however she draws mostly on attachment informed therapies.

Sarah offers a supportive environment in which she operates according to the belief that an individual can achieve meaningful changes in their lives through validation, understanding and insight. She is available for face to face sessions, sessions via Telehealth and home visits.

Sarah is trained in both brief symptom-focussed and longer-term therapies. In brief symptom-focused therapies, Sarah works with patients to learn effective ways to cope with difficult thoughts, feelings and behaviours using evidence-based interventions.

In longer term therapies, Sarah supports patients to reflect and make sense of their own experiences of development and being parented. This process often involves a patient sharing difficult experiences that have never been spoken about, and Sarah feels honoured to be able to hold this space. Through this reflection, patients learn to be able to differentiate their own history from their child’s needs, and are better equipped to meet the needs of their children. Importantly, this leads to long-lasting positive impacts on a child’s development and significantly, can impact generations. (Circle of Security forms an important part of this work!)
