About Me

Sara Martin, MCouns; GradDip BusAdmin.
PACFA Reg. Clinical 25312; CCAA Reg. Graduate

pacfa Approved Counsellor

Iโ€™m a Brisbane-based qualified and registered counsellor with a diverse range of life and work experience.

I enjoy authentic conversations where clients can experience saying what they need to without fear of judgement, leaving them with a sense of being genuinely seen and heard.

I aim to make an intrinsic difference to peopleโ€™s lives, through my therapeutic presence and the way I work with them. This desire to authentically connect with others motivated me to change careers and formalise my interest in helping people, through studying a Master of Counselling.

Previous Experience

Due to a prior corporate career in the business sector, I have a special interest in assisting clients with work-related issues such as major life transitions, including career concerns. This positions me well to work in the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) space with an in-depth understanding of organisational contexts, work-related wellness and work-related stress.

As well as my private practice (Life Sense Counselling), I currently contract with Amovita International as an EAP counsellor.

My extensive volunteering experiences with social services organisations, including running Womenโ€™s Connect groups, have provided experience in supporting front-line caseworkers and supervisors in the social services sector. This includes an understanding of vicarious trauma and the ability to also incorporate some aspects of supervision.

I am interested in the fields of neuroscience, epigenetics, psycho-nutrition and health and wellness. My own health journey has involved an integrated approach and I believe we are integrated beings and therefore a bio-socio-psycho-spiritual approach is needed to treat the whole person.

Inclusive Christian Counselling

As a counsellor who is also a Christian, I can work at a deep level with Christian clients, however, I never introduce spiritual themes and am non-evangelical.

I am open-minded, inclusive and non-judgmental with a curious stance when exploring with clients their experience of gender, sexuality, religion, culture, socio-economic factors and family dynamics.

Iโ€™m not easily offended, rarely shocked and secular in my approach, unless specifically asked to incorporate spirituality.

I offer individual therapy, couples therapy, family therapy and online counselling to Carindale, Carina, Brisbane and surrounding areas.
