About Sarah R
I am a former Psychology student currently undertaking a Masters of Counselling. Whilst at uni, I juggle work in retail on the side. Before deciding to return to study, I spent some time in self-discovery mode after experiencing what we may call an identity crisis. Plenty of questions surfaced: Who am I? What am I doing with my life? What even is the meaning of life? As a former chronic people-pleaser, I made the choice to begin living life on my terms. Consequently, many things changed for me. In fact, my life did a complete 180. My former life was gone, my once certain future was now completely unknown, and my current self? Unrecognisable. But one thing remained the same – my desire to help others.
I identify as an introvert and am the appointed ‘Mum’ of my friendship group. I feel best when I am in nature, I spend my spare time recharging at the beach, or on a long walk. Yes – I’m one of those people who likes long walks on the beach. I thrive off deep conversations. I am an advocate for mental health and self-development. But I am also a (slightly) anxious ruminator. If we have ever spoken, I probably still remember that awkward thing I said five years ago. I’m also the one to spill the water at a restaurant. However, more than anything, I feel I was tasked by the universe to help others. So here I am, trying to do just that.
