Sarah Hyatt LCPH MARH

Sarah is a homeopathic practitioner who qualified at The College of Practical Homeopathy in London after a 4 year training programme and 100 clinical hours. She began her interest in homeopathy aged 19 when it was suggested she use Rescue Remedy to calm her nerves during her driving test. She dabbled with flower essences for a few years before consulting a qualified homeopath for a condition that may have required surgery, but after homeopathic treatment this was not necessary. This convinced her to train. She set up her own supervised student clinic in her final year and hasn’t looked back since. Sarah treats patients of all ages, male and female, but following the birth of her first child, Sarah was approached by many mothers and began to specialise in pregnancy and birth issues, children’s ailments and women’s health.
