What is a Clinical Psychologist?

A Clinical Psychologist undertakes one of the highest levels of training in the mental health field. Clinical psychologists are required to complete a four year undergraduate psychology degree (with honours), followed by a two years Masters course. This is then followed by one to two years of supervision for endorsement as a "Clinical" Psychologist.


Clinical Psychologists are able to conduct assessments, provide diagnoses, and provide treatment, but are not able to prescribe medication (only Psychiatrists or GPs prescribe medication). Some Clinical Psychologists have also completed a further three year degree researching a specific area in the mental health field to obtain a PhD.

In addition to having a Clinical Masters, Sarah has a doctorate from UNSW, with her research investigating the interrelation of anxiety disorders, memory and future thinking.



Sarah is able provide assessment and therapy for:

  • mood difficulties

  • anxiety, worry and stress

  • parenting difficulties

  • bereavement and grief

  • trauma

  • emotion regulation difficulties (i.e. anger)

  • relationship difficulties

  • major life changes
