physiotherapist in Bristol

Welcome to Sarah Holmes Health

The place where mind and body meet.

Experiencing back pain or anxiety, phobias or sports injuries? Want to improve your performance on the sports field or at work, or simply feel more contented with your life?

Sarah Holmes offers you the benefits of a wealth of professional experience, having been a practicing physiotherapist in Bristol since the 1980s. For the last twenty years, she has also been offering acupuncture in conjunction with physiotherapy, for its pain relieving attributes.

She has more recently qualified in both hypnotherapy and neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), which she now offers either separately or as an adjunct to her physiotherapy and acupuncture treatments. Her life coaching work goes hand in hand with both hypnotherapy and NLP.

“Over the years, I have seen patients whose physical problems were influenced by such things as anxiety and excess weight, or where I could see that with active support in positive thinking, they would be able to manage physical difficulties, such as pain, better. I wanted to be able to approach patients’ issues from both perspectives, where appropriate – and indeed look in more depth at the power of the mind.”

Sarah became interested in hypnotherapy and NLP after attending a course exploring ways in which traditional treatment could be augmented by these methods. She went on to complete full professional training in these fields, culminating in a Diploma, and has already clocked up hundreds of hours of practice. As part of her ongoing commitment to CPD, she has regular supervision, as well as keeping up to date with all the latest research, methods and innovations, and is on the way to becoming a Master Practitioner.

“It is amazing to see how well many people respond, and indeed recover – and so quickly. The mind has a tremendous capacity to influence healing. It’s wonderful to enable people to get back the life they love, sometimes after living with a physical or emotionally driven condition for many years.”

Sarah offers a free 20 minute consultation for coaching, NLP and hypnotherapy, to discuss the things you wish to resolve and how these therapies can help you to make the changes you want to make and also to explore further if this is right for you. This is usually by phone or Skype.

For physiotherapy, the initial visit is more in-depth, involving a full assessment of the condition and physical examination, and incurs a charge. For full contact and booking details, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

    “As a retired physiotherapist, I have been delighted at the holistic approach that Sarah was able to give to an acute back pain episode coupled with chronic arthritic knees and a weight problem, by using NLP and hypnotherapy alongside the physiotherapy/acupuncture techniques that I expected.”
