Sara Torpey has been counselling children and adults for the last 16 years after receiving both a Bachelor Degree in Psychology and a Master’s Degree in Education with a speciality in School Counselling.
Sara has a passion for working with children and helping them grow by encouraging emotional wellbeing, positive relationships, self awareness and an understanding of personal strengths and weaknesses. It is her goal to help children develop social awareness and self-management skills so that they can become well-adjusted, self-advocating adults.
In 2012, Sara left the United States to teach English as a Second Language in Thailand and Indonesia. Bali became a second home and Sara met her future Aussie husband, Nick, while living there for three years.
Sara moved to the Northern Rivers five years ago and also works as a Wellbeing Counsellor at Byron Community Primary School. Sara and Nick have a three year old daughter, Tabitha and a rescued Greyhound, Lola.
