Sally Yeh psychologist

Three beliefs that colour the way I work with my clients:

I believe…

That all feelings are okay, and they are often here to help us

I believe…

That small successes, however small they may feel, are worth celebrating.

I believe…

That being kind to ourselves can go a long way.

Get to know me

My secret talent:
Scanning for computer viruses… just kidding! I’d say it’s “matchmaking.”

What’s it like to be in a room with me?
I have been told that I am warm and easy to talk to. I am naturally curious about people, and am interested in getting to know them.

What’s my non-negotiable when it comes to taking care of my own mental health?
I believe that setting healthy boundaries is important for our mental wellbeing. From my perspective, it is a basic human right. It shows our minds that we are worthy, gives us space for self-care, and is kind.

My life motto:
Do what you love.

My background and experience

I have six years of experience working as a psychologist. I have worked with adults and children in private psychology clinics and a medical centre, with young people in headspace and an alcohol and other drugs rehabilitation facility, with adults experiencing sleep issues in Darwin Private Hospital.
