Sarah is a practicing Osteopath and Lecturer, who currently runs her practice outside Hereford. Specialising in trauma, she has developed her tool-box of expertise over the past 30 years.
After surviving an accident and 9 hour swim off the coast of Kenya in 1980 where two men were sadly lost, Sarah made a promise to one day give something back to the two men who drowned after being life saved for 8 hours.
Sarah went on to live in Northern Malawi where her partner was involved in a project introducing sail to Lake Malawi. Having lost her sense of humour and appetite for sailing for the time being, she joined an American Peace Corps Nurse setting up bush clinics where she got her first taste of ‘real hands on medicine’. Seeing the difference made to the indigenous people by using their brains and hands, she was determined one day to build a tool-box of expertise and ultimately treat people suffering from trauma.
Training in Osteopathylaid the foundation followed by studying acupuncture, Neurolingisctic Programming and Hydro Osteopathy, specialising in treating trauma.
Sarah has practiced in Harley Street, Ischia, Kenya, Shetland and had clinics in Gloucestershire and Herefordshire. She lectured in Osteopathy and Health Care at Oxford Brookes and Swansea Universities and now mentors students and new graduates.
“I am thrilled to be invited to join this team and look forward immensely to sharing my style of practice with others.”
p.s: (Sarah went back to Kenya in 2007 after the post election violence. As part of a humanitarian medical team in Kibera, the slum that wraps itself around Nairobi, she fulfilled that promise to give back which set her on the road to recovery herself).
