Sarah Alwyn (she/her)
Senior Consultant – Psychologist (VIC)
Sarah is a registered psychologist with experience in counselling, executive coaching, consulting with organisations, individuals, groups, couples and adolescents.
Her experience includes working as an EAP consultant for individuals and organisations, including government departments, universities, hospitals and private corporations.
With 20 years’ experience in corporate psychology, Sarah is passionate about her role as a psychologist and embraces an approach that builds on developing rapport and creating a strong therapeutic alliance with individuals, organisations and groups.
Moving from work-life to parenthood, then back into the professional arena, Sarah understands the critical nature of transitioning from one important aspect of life to another and navigating the intricacies of a work-life balance. In her clinical work, she embraces a strong approach to supporting individuals through various life changes, and coaching managers to support their staff who are transitioning in both professional and personal spheres.
Sarah has worked closely with organisations throughout the pandemic, to support and provide coping strategies for staff and managers in areas that have included: the transition to working from home, managing boundaries between work and home-life, balancing responsibilities, exacerbated stress and anxiety, and lockdown fatigue.
Drawing upon evidence-based interventions, Sarah’s methodology for working with organisations and individuals includes a solutions-focussed, client-centred and compassionate approach. A strong emphasis on the therapeutic alliance and a collaborative focus has enabled Sarah to achieve successful and sustainable outcomes for the individuals and organisations she has supported.
Learning and development is an important aspect of Sarah’s clinical framework; she attends regular professional supervision, conferences and webinars.
