Sarah Chaplin,

Clinical psychologist

I engage in holistic, integrative, high quality and thorough clinical work that is individual-centred and evidence-based.

I have worked throughout my career with young people, support workers/ carers and their families, supporting them through challenging periods. Working with children and young people who have experienced childhood trauma and abuse is one of my passions and specialisms.

Through my work with foster parents, carers, residential staff and young people I have expanded my expertise in this area.

with Sarah

How can you help parents/carers?

To provide psycho-education/ training on an array of topics and conditions; to helping parents to build a toolkit of strategies to use with their children to manage challenging behaviour, to build a secure and safe homebase and routines; to help parents to understand their children’s behaviour: what triggers them, what drives them, what maintains them and how to mould them into more positive and adaptive behaviour.

Describe your approach to young people in 3 words.

Individualised, integrative and creative.

What is the best thing about being a clinical psychologist?

Being able to help make a difference in the life of others, no matter how great or small that change may be. The following quote illustrates a life mantra and formed the basis for my career choice. I first saw the quote used by World Vision Australia in their advertising when I was in my early teens and it rather resonated with me:

“No one person can change the world but you can change the world for one person”, author unknown.

What fascinates you about young people?

Their resilience in the face of a life of adversity that can be unimaginable for most to even fathom.
