Managing Director & Lead Facilitator
Sarah founded Spirit and Soul and has grown the business from a small idea. Sarah’s work background has been largely based around psychology and working with difficult to engage clients. She has worked for a number of years in both custodial and community settings helping people facilitate change in their lives. Her work experience has helped develop valuable skills which will continue to be used in activities at Spirit and Soul.
Sarah has had horses since she was six years old and has always had a keen interest in more natural horsemanship methods. Having rescued various horses herself, she has learnt so much from each of them.
Being diagnosed with breast cancer at a young age caused a massive change in her outlook on life and how she wanted to then spend her time. Whilst being ill, Sarah continued to look after her own horses and she fully believes this is what kept her going. Having experienced illness herself she is well equipped to understand others coming out of such a difficult time.
Sarah is a certified equine sports massage and rehabilitation therapist which has helped most of the horses overcome injury or illness. Sarah has a degree in psychology, a Masters degree in Forensic Psychology as well as having completed other relevant courses and qualifications helping her support people. She has completed courses in both Equine Assisted Learning and Equine Assisted Therapy. Sarah is a member of the National Council of Psychotherapists (NCP) and is currently completing a Diploma in Psychotherapy.
