I’m Sarra, a 41 year old mum to a toddler and lover of food, red wine and being outdoors.
Over the years I have helped many women get their Oomph back and find confidence and balance when it comes to themselves and healthy eating.
No need to be confused when you look in the fridge anymore. No more wildly swinging between binge and diet. I make it simple and we kick those feelings of overwhelm and inadequacy to the kerb.
Over the years I have had my fair share of problems and challenges to overcome from a ten year eating disorder to depression, anxiety and self confidence issues. However I have always had joy in my heart and knew that there was a happier way for me to live. One that didn’t include counting every calorie that went in my mouth or hating myself because I wasn’t a size 8 (unless I was starving myself). One that didn’t mean I worried excessively about what people thought of me or waited anxiously for the next black cloud to pass over me.
Whilst on my journey to health and wellbeing I tried out an amazing variety of therapies from counselling to EFT, naturopathy to psychotherapy. Together, with the support of my other half, I started to feel more like the real Sarra, more confident, balanced and vibrant.
In 2009 I decided to study naturopathic nutrition which I loved. I then went on to train in EFT (emotional freedom technique) and NLP alongside coaching and have never looked back.
I started out have helping people with a variety of ailments from hormone imbalance to digestive issues using naturopathic techniques and nutritional coaching. During this time I also ran workshops and worked at yoga retreats. I even ran my own juice and smoothie bar for a few years called Damage Limitation that we took to events all over the UK. You may have tried one of our infamous Dirty Elvis smoothies at Vegfest or Vegan LIfe Live?!
One of my favourite jobs was a 2 year stint working as a personal plant based chef in a family home. I was initially employed as the husband was recovering from C.F.S. and wanted to make sure he was getting a nutrient dense diet. Over the time I was there his blood work improved and the whole family adopted a healthy plant based diet and lifestyle. This was particularly close to my heart as I have been plant based for aprox 20 years and to see a whole family transition from bog standard, not particularly healthy eaters to super healthy plant based was such a joy especially as they were so excited about it and loved spreading the word and encouraging others.
Alongside my coaching work I have also worked as a nanny (my first career) so I have had a tonne of experience seeing the juggles that motherhood brings and how, as women, we often put ourselves at the bottom of the To Do List with detrimental consequences.
Now as a mother myself I experience that first hand and have found my own ways to stay vaguely sane, energised and fitting in my fave jeans without having to give up wine or my husbands olive and garlic bread.
I love myself even when I fuck up (which I do regularly) and am far more compassionate because of this!
All of this has led me to a place where I actually enjoy finding ways to give myself what I need in order to feel like my best version of Sarra and I’m so excited about helping you find your own ways too!
I believe a healthy lifestyle is all about…
- Energy! Where’s it gone? How do we get it back? How do we sustain it so that we can thrive?
- Balance. Ending the binge/diet cycle and making friends with food and yourself.
- Simplicity and support. We keep it simple and I’m there to hold your hand along the way.
