what makes me the right person to help you?

I know how it feels to feel awful. In my 20s I suffered with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, which I believe developed as a result of a combination of things – years of crash dieting, too much partying, too little sleep, not eating well and being unhappy in my job. I discovered first-hand that I wasn’t indestructible.

My doctor offered me antidepressants and sent me on my way.  Desperate, I turned to naturopathy – I had no idea what it was! I made changes to what I ate, and the way I lived my life and I became well. Really well. So well, in fact, I was inspired to retrain as a Naturopath and Herbalist at the CNM, where I qualified in 2003 with distinction. Since then, I’ve been on a mission to help others transform their health.

work with sara

I work with busy women just like you who want to be well. Really well. Visibly, tangibly well from the inside out.

I help people to lose weight, let go of stress, and stop feeling tired all the time. I also help people with digestive disorders, food intolerance, the menopause, skin conditions, anxiety and insomnia, as well as working with those who can’t really put their finger on exactly what the problem is.

Most people who work with me have been to their GP and all their tests have come back normal. They’re told there’s nothing that can be done, that they’ll have to live with their symptoms. They still feel unwell. They are still suffering.  This is where I can help.

When you work with me, you enter a partnership with a shared goal: to help you to be well in mind, body and soul. To help you be your best requires commitment and time from both of us: issues that have been around for years won’t disappear overnight and our aim is for permanent change, not just temporary suppression of symptoms or fleeting achievements. Most people work with me for 6-9 months.

why do you get such good results?

I’m a Naturopath and a health mentor. The Naturopath part of me is an educator, helping you to understand what is going on underneath your symptoms, and nudging your body back into healthy function using natural remedies. The mentor part is the enabler, helping you access your own inner wise voice, and supporting you in getting what you want from your health and your life; turning your dreams into your reality. It’s miles apart from doing things because you feel you should and it’s the reason why my approach is so effective.

what is naturopathy?

Naturopathy is a whole-person approach, taking into account the physical, mental and emotional aspects of a person and their life. Naturopathy is based on the principle that the body will heal itself, given the right circumstances. My job is to enable those circumstances using some or all of the following tools:

  • food Intolerance testing

  • lifestyle advice

  • nutritional advice & food supplements

  • herbal medicine

  • kinesiology

  • meditation & relaxation techniques

Everything we do together is underpinned by coaching, which enables you to put into place lasting lifestyle changes that transform your goals from a wish into reality and help you to be well. Really well. From the inside out.
