Hello, my name is Sarah and I am the Lighter of the Blue Touch Paper. Thank you for taking the time to find out more about how homeopathy and I can help you.
I have run my own practice for a number of years, treating people with all kinds of challenges in their lives; physical, mental and emotional. My skill lies in quickly, gently and compassionately guiding you and supporting you in releasing that which no longer serves you. I do this using a combination of healing tools which get to the heart of problem quickly and effectively. I believe very strongly in empowering people to help themselves and in helping them to take responsibility for their own health and wellbeing, so I teach my clients simple techniques which they can use themselves.
I light the blue touch paper for you and set you off on your path to health and happiness.
I first came across Homeopathy when I was pregnant with my first child. Somebody said that I should take some Arnica after the birth, “for the bruising”… well I thought, I’m having a baby I’m not going to be falling over but hey, you live and learn. I did follow their advice and took Arnica. I recovered very quickly and also learned that Arnica had friends like Calendula, Hypericum and Belladonna which became part of my medicine cabinet as my little boy grew up.
I used homeopathic remedies throughout my subsequent pregnancies and births and for all of my children whenever they had coughs, colds, ear-aches, tummy-aches and other childhood illnesses.
During this time I was a teacher in a college of Further Education. I was working long hours, not just at college but at home too. I became exhausted and gradually became very unwell with symptoms of Fibromyalgia Syndrome. I had no idea that homeopathy could help me in the state I was in; after all I thought remedies were just for acute illnesses, bumps & bruises and hangovers. A friend suggested that I consult a homeopath to see if it could help me. I did and very quickly I started to get well again. I slept better, my pain was far more manageable and I didn’t have to use my wheelchair nearly as often as I had. I found the whole process absolutely fascinating. I also found my passion…helping people to become well.
I started professional training and in 2008 graduated from The Lakeland College. There I was able to study not only homeopathy but also various ranges of essences, herbal tinctures and tissue salts all of which support homeopathic remedies beautifully.
I graduated as a fully qualified homeopath (MLCHom) and a registered member of The Alliance of Registered Homeopaths (MARH). This guarantees that I have passed stringent clinical assessments, adhere to the Alliance’s code of ethics and practice and undertake ongoing professional development and supervision to maintain the highest standards of care.
Here’s what my tutors at Lakeland had to say:
“Sarah has a magnetic personality and has attracted many patients throughout her training. She has managed very complicated cases with grace and poise, offering a deep compassion, combined with an incredible warmth and generosity of spirit. She is 100% passionate and dedicated to being a homeopath and we know she will be a credit to The Lakeland College.”
Apart from working on a one-to-one basis with clients I teach people in small groups how to use homeopathic remedies at home. I also teach small groups of people how to learn about themselves as spiritual beings. I help them to find their passion in life and provide a place for them to explore safely just where they want to go in life. I show them how to find their joy by enabling them to find out the truth about their beliefs.
