Sarah’s Story

Sarah Yearsley Bowen Technique

As a therapist, I am passionate about holistic health. There are many factors that affect our health from physical trauma to illness, stress, and emotional disturbance. I take great joy in witnessing the healing process in my clients as we work together towards restored good health.

Pain and illness have been a part of my life too. As a young teenager, I was diagnosed with Crohns Disease, so I understand only too well the impact a major illness can have on all areas of life. Good health is the most important thing we possess, the foundation stone on which we build our lives, so working through a major illness was one of the biggest lessons in my life.

With the right help, we all have the ability to heal ourselves and experiencing the healing qualities of the Bowen Technique was the catalyst for me on my own path to recovery. Discovering the profound way in which Bowen works, not only on the physical body but also in releasing underlying emotional stress, was what motivated me to want to help others in similar predicaments.

The Bowen Technique works its magic by regulating the autonomic nervous system. After years of major surgery and a highly stressful career in TV and film production, I was unable to heal as my body was locked into the ‘fight or flight’ response. This left me in a state of chronic anxiety and the Bowen Technique was my salvation.

I have also trained with The Somatic School, the world’s first and only Somatic School to be awarded a Level 2 Accreditation by the International Coaching Federation (ICF). The importance of Somatic work in the healing process and the relief of mental and physical stress, pain and illness is only now beginning to be fully understood by neuroscience.

When my clients come for Somatic Coaching, it is often of great benefit, especially for those who are living with constant pain and suffering. My philosophy is to engage with my clients on a journey of interaction that can lead to a sense of empowerment where they feel able to carry forward their own healing journey. Somatic Coaching is a catalyst which enables them to continue with the self-healing process on their own after a consultation. This often means that they are able to attain the best possible outcome.

My clients have experienced relief from many conditions including back and neck pain, sciatica, osteoarthritis, arthritis, gynaecological problems, frozen shoulder, panic attacks, asthma, TMD, migraines, RSI. Athletes visit the clinic for performance enhancement and injury prevention.
