Hi, my name is Sarah. I am excited to be back in the U.K after working in Ireland, Spain and Gibraltar. While I am sad to leave those wonderful places, I am delighted to be home sharing my Somatics lessons with others.

Dublin is where I first studied Neuromuscular Physical Therapy (NMT) at the NTC under the directorship of Mr John Sharkey, I also studied Pilates in several fantastic schools, The Pilates Institute Ireland, Body Balance University, The Progressive Pilates Academy and JPilates (London). Why so many schools?! Well, I love to experience a wide range of training so that I can offer the best I can to my clients!

Thanks to the fantastic training from Martha Peterson and her amazing team at Essential Somatics and the lovely Tanya Fitzpatrick at Align Somatics, I became a Somatics Coach back in 2013. 

I ultimately gave up Pilates, and Somatics is my main focus.


Somatics uses gentle movement patterns anyone can do. It helps us re-educate our nervous system by releasing muscles and re-educating movement patterns that no longer serve us. This allows us to reduce pain and tension and regain our freedom of movement.  

We can achieve excellent results by focusing on the 'means whereby' of movement rather than 'end goal gaining' and working with the body by pandiculating rather than against it by stretching. We become more aware of how we are using our bodies.

There's a sense of empowerment that comes with being able to self-sense and self-regulate, to feel good again without relying on constant visits to therapists. With Somatics, you're not just 'fixing' a problem, you're learning a new skill, a skill that you will have for life. It's a skill that puts you in control of your well-being.


I come from a background of chronic pain myself, and after suffering for years, I know what it is like to wonder if it will ever change. Will there ever be a day when I can move or sleep again without pain ruling my life?


One of the most fulfilling aspects of my work is hearing how my clients' pains are reduced and how they feel fitter and stronger from exploring Somatics. It's a joy to witness their journey towards feeling good again, and it's a joy I hope to share with you.

I hope you will join us!
