Sarah Tuckett Psychotherapy and Counselling
Mobile 0450 220 059
I am a compassionate supportive psychotherapist in North Brisbane offering counselling and body (somatic) psychotherapy to adults, workshops and movement therapy classes to help you get back on track. I have a special interest in anxiety, pain and psychosomatic illness.
I offer 1:1 therapy for adults using counselling and body psychotherapy techniques, workshops and weekly movement therapy classes that are inspired by yoga, dance and Bioenergetic techniques.
Emotional Release, Mindfulness, Psychodynamic, Somatic Psychotherapy
When you feel anxious or depressed you don't just feel it in your head, you also feel symptoms in your body. So I offer a technique that works with both.
Body psychotherapy integrates talk therapy with movement, breathing and mindfulness to help restore your mental and emotional wellbeing.
When we track sensations in your body, your body gives you clues as to how you’re feeling, even when your mind tries to deny it. It will bring awareness to unconscious feelings and stored memories – helping you understand unconscious self-sabotage patterns and limiting beliefs.
It’s not just putting on a band-aid, it’s helping you learn about yourself so that you don’t repeat the same mistakes. It’s about personal development.
I am a member of the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia and I abide by their standards for ethical conduct.
When you book in to see me, what you will find is that I am interested in your emotional wellbeing - your feelings - not just your thoughts and behaviour. I am not just a face behind a clipboard, I’m connecting with you as human being so I can walk side by side with you.
In 2006 I spiraled down into depression and anxiety due to chronic stress at work. This started me on an exploration of mainstream and complimentary techniques for managing my depression. I was introduced to the Institute of Body Psychotherapy in 2012 as a client. I learned first-hand how the body holds emotions and that you can release this tension through movement.
I started practitioner training in 2013 and started practicing as a body psychotherapist in late 2014 whilst I was still a student. I completed my psychotherapy studies at the end of 2015 and I’m now a teaching assistant at the Institute. I’m currently studying a Master of Mental Health through UQ so that I can offer additional psychotherapy techniques to clients.
I offer a free 20 minute discovery session to new clients. Standard appointments are 1 hour long.
You can book appointments via my online diary - see my website below for live link.
Parking is available on the street directly outside.
My standard fee is $95 per hour. I offer a sliding scale for people who are retired or in financial difficulties. I am able to offer rebates for members of Medibank Private health fund.
I accept cash, and major debit or credit cards with a chip. (I am unable to accept American Express, Diners or eftpos cards without a chip).
I am a caring, supportive counsellor based in North Brisbane. The technique I use is Somatic or Body psychotherapy, which works with the whole person, not just the mind. Body psychotherapy integrates talk therapy with breathing, mindfulness and movement for the body. You feel anxiety and depression in your whole being, so try a holistic approach to your recovery....
