YOU. ARE. ENOUGH.

“I hope you will go out and let stories, that is life, happen to you, and that you will work with these stories… water them with your blood and tears and your laughter till they bloom, till you yourself burst into bloom.” Dr Clarissa Pinkola Estes

 

YOU. ARE. ENOUGH.

When did you stop believing this was the truth, and start playing small?

Welcome to the PORTAL OF CHANGE

…a dive into the alchemical being that is you. A journey to reclaim the one that you have forgotten along the way. The one so lost in stories about not ‘being enough’, locked in existing, you forgot how to LIVE.

You join a long and beautiful line of women who find themselves seeking their WILD WOMAN ARCHETYPE, facing a thresholds in their lives, above all wanting CHANGE…you are in great company…welcome.

DO YOU FIND YOURSELF:

FEELING STUCK?

WANTING DIRECTION AND INSIGHTS, TO BE GUIDED BY YOUR INTUITION?

WANTING TO LIVE A FULLY EXPRESSED LIFE

FEELING UNABLE TO SPEAK YOUR TRUTH, KNOW YOUR BODY AND BE HAPPY IN YOUR SEXUALITY IN WAYS TO SERVE AND HONOUR YOU

STUCK IN TOXIC PATTERNS OF BEHAVIOUR AND RELATIONSHIPS?

TIRED OF PLAYING OUT THE SAME OLD STORIES

DO THESE RING TRUE?

THEN IT IS TIME TO REFRAME YOUR MIND, YOUR LIFE, YOUR DIET, YOUR ENVIRONMENT… CHANGE YOUR STORY ABOUT YOURSELF AND YOUR LIFE AND STEP IN TO YOUR FULL EXPRESSION IN THE WORLD…

“The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward.”

Amelia Earhart

Through an intuitive, client lead approach you will get clear on what it is you are wanting to gain from our time and YOUR LIFE.

YOU WILL learn to navigate the journey you are wishing to traverse, the path being called by your deeper wisdom, the one that is the TRUTH of who you are.  

You will identify where you are STUCK in the past, holding on to old patterns, caught in old loops and not taking responsibility for yourself, where you are playing the VICTIM unconsciously which is affecting your health and your life.

You will learn to see where your soul and psyche have split through loss and trauma and learn how to identify these parts, communicate with them and nourish them.

You will learn to lean into those parts that hold the GRACE... the parts that hurt, the pain that is stuck, the fear that restricts and binds. Where you have severed yourself…from yourself. To learn the GRACE in the GRIT of life’s curve balls and reclaim yourself mind, body and soul for yourself.

You learn to listen intuitively to your body and thus your soul.  From here you learn to move in your own unique way in the world, to live  your deepest calling to authentically express yourself in the world.

“How can we ever be truly “prepared”? Let yourself fail, let yourself fall, my friend, let yourself get caught up in the story. Let yourself want to be somewhere else, someone else, ANYWHERE ELSE BUT HERE. Let yourself be exactly what you are, where you are, how you are. Human. Imperfect. Fallible. Fragile. Hurting. Afraid. Utterly loveable, yet sometimes feeling utterly unlovable. Facing the unwanted. Sometimes unable to face the unwanted. Sometimes longing for the end.Let yourself break today, on the altar of life itself

Jeff Foster

It is time to say YES,  to STAND UP AND RECLAIM YOUR POWER, POTENCY AND POTENTIAL

YES!  This can be scary.

YES! This means change.

YES! This means allowing yourself to be vulnerable.

YES! This means learning to FEEL your emotions. ALL of them…anger, grief, rage, shame, joy and learning COMPASSION for yourself and others.

YES! This means going into the tender, navigated, segregated and banished parts of our hearts, to quest to reclaim the lost parts of our souls.

YES! It means navigating untrodden territory – taking the path less travelled, the dive into the dark forest

YET… through learning who we are, holding our tender hearts, finding our womb voice, taking fear by the hand as well as our younger selves we learn to integrate, to listen to the soul voice within …through this we LIBERATE ourselves, our hearts, our voices and become our true expression.

Utilising Creative Therapeutic Coaching, EMDR,  NLP, Theta Healing, TimeLine Therapy, Hypnosis, Nutrition, Kinesiology, deep Womb and Shamanic work we dive deep into who you are and who you are here to be.

As with any transformative journey it is not for the faint hearted, it is one for those that WANT TO CHANGE, those tired of living the same existence, those that know there is something more, that THEY – YOU are someone more and are ready to dance to the next level in your life, to take the stories and run with them.

One client says:

“Sarah is refreshingly upfront, direct and straight in there… with enough compassion, warmth and insight to simultaneously create a space where everything is welcome. Each session rattled me out and pulled me together, all my threads in safe hands with this skilled alchemical guide. Be prepared to get straight with yourself, and feel the magic unfold as you step along your way”.  Dechen Shaw

If called, we will also recommend and provide Flower Remedies to help move through old patterns and emotions, these are issued at an additional cost.

During your confidential consultation we will look at your specific problems and the best way to achieve your goals

“The more one does, the more one can do.”
― Amelia Earhart

 

How do we do this?

Together we look at the idea of areas that interact and influence the way we respond to life:

…First and foremost…

QUIT BEING STUCK IN THE VICTIM!

STOP waiting for your Knight in shining armour, and become the sovereign Queen on her own steed (or badass unicorn)”

Sarah Bullock

 

YES…you read this right…In order to LIVE a full life we have to QUIT BEING A VICTIM and embrace all our ‘f*** ups as potential awakenings’, take back our power and learn to roll with responsibility. In saying this please do not think that this I demean the Victim the one that has experienced the trauma, no there are times we have all been the victim, some great travesties in life and against us are beyond our control what I invite is an opportunity of getting out of being stuck here, lifeless and depressed. YOU LEARN HOW TO RECLAIM YOUR POWER and LIVE.

Please know that I am not asking here anything I have not done myself.

Learning to SELF-PARENT, take FULL RESPONSIBILITY, BE ACCOUNTABLE, STOP BEING THE VICTIM (yes, it is a practise for those of us that know this archetype intimately; on my journey this was the hardest thing I have ever done, yet it has been the most powerful. How can we live a full life if we are constantly waiting to be rescued?

We learn to stop projecting our woundings, (we all have wounds…) onto others, golly I’ve known this one and it again is a practise, yet the more we know and understand ourselves, the more we make choices that are from a place of awareness and a ‘HEALTHY I’.

In order to do this we take a holistic approach:

BODY

PHYSICAL: We actually learn how to walk from our parents – if you have ever watched a family walk together you will notice a similar gate. FIGURATIVELY WE LITERALLY HAVE TO LEARN TO WALK FOR OURSELVES...

Our bodies hold trauma when it is not allowed to move through, therefore our posture matters as you stand, sit and hold yourself in patterns learned and we lock in or release trauma, as we engage and learn to sink into the animal of our body and skin we learn to move through life with more flow

EMOTIONAL: your thought processes, emotions, beliefs and values, past stress and emotional upset – the more we access, understand and allow our emotions to flow the more we learn to ‘dance with life’ to release trauma, stop projecting onto others and to own our reactions and responses  

CHEMICAL: your hormones, digestive system, the food you eat – WHAT YOU PUT INTO YOUR BODY MATTERS! Healthy diet – healthy body and mind, fewer toxins matter they directly affect our capabilities and can cause depression, low self esteem…

EMOTIONS

Grief, I’ve learned, is really just love. It’s all the love you want to give, but cannot. All that unspent love gathers in the corners of your eyes, the lump in your throat, and in that hollow part of your chest.  Grief is just love with no place to go.”

Jamie Anderson

So many of us avoid FEELING. We have been shut down (think – big girls don’t cry, don’t be a sissy, chin up…you know the ones) and we have shut ourselves down. We have ALL been hurt and we have ALL hurt others. Yet, when we allow this stop us BEING in life, we shut down a huge amount

MIND

How you think and what you say to yourself matters! Our mind is an incredible ally but terrible ‘master/mistress’. We create from birth stories that keep us safe, beliefs and patterns of toxic and sabotaging behaviour that keep us locked in a loop of living small, painful lives. As we learn to retrain our thoughts, our capability to shift our perceptions increases. Shifting the neuro-pathways we learn to move from FIGHT, FLIGHT, FREEZE to CONSCIOUS DECISION MAKING. From the limbic, primal reptilian brain to the frontal cortex.

SOUL

What are your beliefs? Do you believe in something greater than yourself? I’m not necessarily speaking about ‘God/Goddess’ I am however speaking to the ‘collective’ the ability to have FAITH in yourself, in life and in doing so become a CREATRIX of your own life. You take the lead and stop worrying about what others think. You open your voice, your heart and you SHINE.

“the first step to getting what you want, is to be brave enough to get clear on and to release what no longer serves you”

Sarah Bullock

ENVIRONMENT

Where you live and how you live matters! How you do what you do and where you do it both internal and external matter – clutter, geopathic stress ALL affect our well-being. Time for a spring clean inside and out.

Who. What. Where.

“We do not become healers.
We came as healers. We are.
Some of us are still catching up to what we are.

We do not become storytellers.
We came as carriers of the stories that
we and our ancestors actually lived. We are.
Some of us are still catching up to what we are.

We do not become artists. We came as artists. We are.
Some of us are still catching up to what we are.

We do not become writers.. dancers.. musicians.. helpers.. peacemakers. We came as such. We are.
Some of us are still catching up to what we are.

We do not learn to love in this sense. We came as Love. We are Love. Some of us are still catching up to who we truly are.”~

~Clarissa Pinkola Estes

 

Hello, I’m Sarah, I am an experienced Creative Psychotherapist working particularly with women, and I believe in a holistic approach to health and wellbeing.

My aim is to support you on a journey that guides you through the ‘grit, this could include depression, low self esteem, trauma, grief or feeling stuck, to discover the ‘gratitude’ and ‘grace’ of embracing a fulfilled and expressed life.  With deep empathy and grace, I invite you to wander off the well worn path of past familial behaviours onto the path of rediscovery and soul-liberation.

I specialise in empowering women to live full lives and know their worth.

To live fully embodied; to be expansive, expressive, creative, daring and in tune with their sensual lives.

To be in full integrity with self.

Creating a place to heal the deepest of wounds.

To allow joy and wonder to entertain the spirit and entice it to be fully present in the body.

To be embodied for all of life’s pleasures once again!

What can you expect?

Confidentiality – for me this is key. I believe in an honest and interactive client/therapist relationship which means I will often invite you to undertake homework in order to fully develop the tools you explore in session. I am someone who will support you and encourage you to heal and be the best person you are able to be, giving you a creative and cognitive experience in session, and an invitation to explore the blocked emotions that hold us back from living fully.

You can expect a compassionate and empathetic approach to the work, whilst also working towards empowering you to lead and live a full life (from a person who is doing her own work!). I fully believe that I can only take someone where I am prepared to go, therefore I regularly have my own therapy, supervision, attend CPD training and have a vested interest in exploring my own soma and psyche.

Would you like to find out more about how I can help?  Please do get in touch!

Together we find opportunities to move past these blocks and begin to transform both yourself and your life.  To finally become the person you have always wanted to be.  Fully embodied, alive and aware of your needs, happy to meet your own needs and confident to move forward.

Training, qualifications & experience

A registered member of the Health and Care Professionals Council, I am governed by their Code of Ethics. I’ve worked with groups and 1:1 for 18 years, assisting women to become more confident and self expressed in their lives.

I have a keen interest in working with grief and loss, and I have volunteered at a local hospice supporting those that have suffered a bereavement. I am also dancer and body worker and believe our body holds much of the information we need in order to heal. I work with a very somatic based approach to my work.

….creativity

You know I keep seeing and hearing of people getting so much ‘more creative’ or ‘finding their creativity’ through this time which is really beautiful and inspiring. Yet, I myself have found myself to be creatively constipated… normally I would be eager to cook, create, write, dance but over the last months this creative flow …
