About Sarah

About Sarah

Dr. Sarah Liddle is an endorsed clinical psychologist with over 5 years of experience helping individuals achieve their goals and improve their overall wellbeing. Sarah specialises in working from an attachment lens using schema therapy and acceptance and commitment therapy, which have been shown to be effective in treating a variety of mental health concerns.

Sarah views mental health through the lens of attachment theory, which emphasises the importance of secure and healthy relationships in one’s overall wellbeing. Using this perspective, Sarah utilises schema therapy and acceptance and commitment therapy to address longstanding patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving that may be stemming from past attachment experiences.

In addition to her clinical work, Sarah also works as a postdoctoral researcher at Monash University investigating mental health, suicide prevention, help-seeking, and sport. She provides research supervision to honours and PhD students, and lectures in the postgraduate clinical and clinical neuropsychology PhD programs. This research focus allows Sarah to stay current on the latest research and evidence-based practices in the field of mental health, which she incorporates into her work with clients.

Sarah has a deep understanding of schema therapy and acceptance and commitment therapy and how to apply them through an attachment lens to help clients overcome obstacles and make lasting positive changes in their lives.

Sarah is dedicated to providing a safe and supportive environment for clients to explore their thoughts and feelings, and to work towards achieving their goals. With Sarah’s guidance and support, clients can expect to gain insight into their behaviours, understand the impact of past attachment experiences on their present, and learn effective strategies for managing their symptoms and improving their overall wellbeing.

What types of clients does Sarah work with?

Sarah works with adolescents and adults who are struggling with a wide range of issues such as anxiety, attachment issues, and other mental health concerns. Sarah has a particular interest in working with clients who are experiencing anxiety in the context of performance, relationships, and sports.

Sarah also incorporates positive psychology principles to help clients to identify and achieve their goals, and to develop a sense of fulfilment and satisfaction in their lives. Additionally, Sarah understands the importance of sport in mental health and works with clients who are experiencing performance anxiety and helping them to build resilience to overcome those obstacles and improve their performance.

Rebate Eligibility

Medicare rebates are available; and a GP referral is required for these. To obtain a Medicare rebate you will need to obtain a Mental Health Treatment Plan and referral from your GP. Otherwise, if you have a treating psychiatrist, they can provide a general referral letter. If you haven’t yet obtained a referral, we may be able to recommend General Practitioners in the local area whom we already work with.

For information about Medicare rebates, please see our FAQ section, particularly ‘Can I receive a Medicare rebate for seeing a psychologist?’ and ‘Are there Medicare rebates for seeing a psychologist via telehealth sessions? Or private health rebates? – COVID-19’.

If you do not wish to obtain a referral, you can check with your private health insurance fund to see if counselling is covered. Otherwise, you will need to pay the full fee.
