Sarah Taylor

I have 35 years of social work experience working in primary and secondary mental health, physical health and care and protection work.
I am passionate about working with clients wanting to rebuild their life after a loss. In 2017 I completed training with Christina Rasmussen at the Life Reentry Institute to use this method with clients to reenter their life after loss.
This training is based on neuro science. My partner died in 2016 and I experienced this method for myself and later went on to do the first training offered.
I have been working as a clinical supervisor for the past 24 years.
I live in Geraldine, South Canterbury. I use Zoom to work with clients out of the area.
