I am Sarah, a 49 year old Mum to 3 gorgeous boys. I have successfully run my own Health & Wellbeing practise since 2012 in Colchester Essex. My mission is to support and empower women to lead their best lives, happy, healthy and fulfilled. I work with women of all ages but specialise in working with women through midlife and beyond, arming them with an amazing toolbox packed full of invaluable information on how they can survive and thrive through the Menopause!
My passion for Health & Wellbeing began back in 1997 when I was 27. I was feeling the pressures of becoming a new Mum and was busy juggling family and work life when symptoms of stress started to show. I began to feel very anxious and uptight, I had always suffered with PMS and my hormones were all over the place. I was exhausted and felt I had to do something to help myself for myself and my family. I wanted to take the natural path and did not want to take medications as I felt this would just mask what was really going on. I wanted to get to the root of my anxieties and fears and let them go so I could move forward confident, happy and secure in myself.
I invested in seeing a Life Coach who became my rock over the next few years and I had a combination of other alternative therapies including Massage Therapy and Energy healing. My therapy and treatments over the years helped to transform me into a confident, positive person free from fear and anxiety. I was able to let go of all the negative emotions that were holding me back from living a fulfilled life. It wasn’t easy, there were a lot of tears as I let go, but it was all so worth it.
I went through a divorce at age 39, met someone new and had my 3rd son at 42. Inspired by my therapist I re trained as a Health and Wellbeing Practitioner and set up my own business. I had finally found my passion and threw myself into work and built it up to be a fulltime successful career which I absolutely love to this day. It was after this I began to notice a whole array of symptoms begin again from anxiety, weight gain, terrible night sweats, feeling very irritable and unhappy. Not at any point did I think it was early stages of Menopause as I hadn’t heard of Peri – Menopause so I had no idea.
I began to revaluate my lifestyle, I changed my diet, focused on selfcare and exercise and time for myself. I had let all of this really slip because I was so busy working and looking after my family. I began to feel much better and one day I was researching on the internet and came across Peri-Menopause. OMG this was me! It was like a lightbulb going off inside my head, I had to find out more. I was also seeing many women in my practice suffering with the same symptoms and not getting any help or answers from their doctors. This was like a huge message to me that I had to get out there and learn as much as possible so that I could help and support not only myself but other women too.
Over the years my passion and drive for helping others led me to train in a variety of wellness therapies and fulfil my dream of setting up a Health and Wellness Centre which manifested in 2019. I now run The Manor Health & Wellness Centre in Colchester Essex with a good friend and fellow therapist. I completed my training as a Peri to Post-Menopausal Women’s Wellness Coach and feel absolutely blessed that I can share my knowledge and support other women to feel the power to transform their lives so that they can enjoy this next life phase free of worry and fear. I am a very experienced Massage Therapist and can combine this in all my sessions working in womens wellness.
