Sarah: empathic, enthusiastic, listener.
Likes: dogs, crisp autumn days, punk rock, adventures, coffee. And dinosaurs.
Conducts: weddings, namings/welcomings, funerals. And anything else you may want to celebrate!
I have worked for many years supporting people experiencing difficulties and trauma. This has enhanced my listening skills, empathy and understanding, but also deepened my belief in the fundamental importance of love, and living life your way. The first humanist funeral I attended had such an impact on me that I was motivated to use and develop my skills in a new way - as a celebrant.
I believe passionately in equality, tolerance and in striving to tread softly wherever we go. Which is why I feel at home and lucky to be with Celebrate People, a group who's whole ethos is based on this.
Being a celebrant is so special because the moments I share with people are a total privilege. And because this amazing work honours the beliefs and values which are meaningful in my own life.
I want to get to know you, hear your stories and help you to create a personal ceremony. With you, your beliefs and your loved ones at the centre. Always.
"Sarah was absolutely fantastic when she conducted our daughter’s naming day. She went out of her way to ensure the service was reflective of our family, sought to understand exactly what we wanted the day to be about, and really endeavoured to make sure that it was exceptionally personal and special.
Would highly recommend Sarah as a humanist who really encompasses the compassion and love which is at the core of humanist celebrations, she was outstanding."
