Sara believes plants offer a safe space to explore the root cause of illness that can often sit within our emotions, beliefs and past experiences. With an interest in trauma, she weaves together plant meetings with somatic awareness through movement and the felt sense of the body, to support people to re-member their innate body wisdom and engage in their own healing process towards emotional and physical well being. Sara is passionate about challenging the post-colonial narratives woven into western herbalism.
Sara is completing the Insight Herbalism training. She has worked with Nature connection in one way or another for over 13 years. Most of this has been working with vulnerable adults and homeless groups with a variety of mental health needs. From her work as a community gardener she has witness the intrinsic connection between nature and well-being, and seen how the somatic experience of reconnecting with nature can act as a mirror – reminding each individual who we are at our very core thus creating space to heal.
Sara is offering one to one sessions on zoom and in-person sessions in Nailsworth as Covid restrictions allow.
