Therapies & Retreats
Hi, I'm Sarah
I am so intrigued by how the mind and body works. I love learning and trying new things and to see my clients get better! Moreover, I love what I do and what I can bring into peoples lives.
As a young running enthusiast with an interest in science and how the body works, I studied Physiotheraphy at University in 2005. I had a wonderful time in the NHS rotating through all the different departments and gaining experience – specialising in musculoskeletal physiotherapy.
More recently I discovered Connect Therapy after finally finding a treatment that fixed a foot problem I had for years. After this life enhancing experience I knew that is what I want to offer my clients.
I now split my time between the French Alps in the winter and Dartmouth in the summer offering Physiotherapy, Massage and Pilates and Yoga classes – and more recently taking these classes to the water on a paddle board.
You will find me in my spare time running after my toddler, and when there is a moment of down time – with my head in a book on something to do with the body. I’m addicted to learning more about myself and other humans. Or you will find me wild swimming or balancing on a Paddle Board.
I qualified with a BSc in Physiotherapy in 2008 and went into the NHS. Which was amazing as a Junior Rotational Physiotherapist I had the opportunity to work in all the different departments from Intensive Care, to Paediatrics, to Neuro rehab (strokes and other neurological problems) to Outpatients and more.
I went on to study Sport Massage.
I trained as APPI Pilates Instructor.
I studied Yoga and have a 500hr Yoga Teacher qualification.
I’m also a Paddle Board Yoga Instructor and a Ski Instructor but that’s a whole other story.
As I went on to specialise in Outpatients I studied Acupuncture, and more recently trained as a Connect Therapist.
A specialist type of Physiotherapy that connects the whole body together and rather than only treat your symptoms it aims finds the underlying cause of why your body isn’t moving optimally and is overloading a certain area of your body. – In others words not just treating the sore bit.

What to expect when you come to see me.
A big smile to greet you at the door and I’ll welcome you in. Before you arrive, I will ask you to fill out some online forms sent to you by email. I need you to fill these out before you come so we have more time in the session for hands on treatment.
The first physio session can be un to 90 minutes depending on your body’s needs.
Follow up sessions are between 45 – 60 minutes. I offer longer appointments so I can LISTEN properly and gives me time to understand what is going on in your body which ultimately gives you a better outcome. I’m not about quick fixes (unless that is what your body needs) I want to get to the bottom of what is causing your symptoms so they don’t come back.
When you find your therapist, therapy works even better. I know you, and you know me. As I know your body, treatment gets better and more effective.
