About Sarah Phillips
It's been quite a journey! I'm Sarah, born and bred in London, based here again after stints studying in Paris and NYC.
I grew up knowing little or nothing about health and wellness. I had little understanding of nutrition or of what a healthy relationship with food meant. Overweight and sedentary, I lacked self-love and confidence while growing up. I know I'm not alone in that, especially as a young woman.
When I was twelve years old my mother was diagnosed with cervical cancer, she died four years later. In the aftermath, due to the lack of any research into a treatment for cervical cancer specifically, my family set up a charity in her name. We worked hard and raised a lot of money and I felt that my role in helping people with their health was done. However, it was barely beginning.
I've always loved to cook and planned to train as a Cordon Bleu chef after university in order to pursue food writing. As they tend to, these plans changed after my sister became unwell with systemic candida overgrowth. Having to cook for her very restrictive dietary needs whilst making the food delicious and satisfying was an unexpected joy. I began to see the intrinsic link between food and health. I saw the potential for more.
My burgeoning yoga practise played a key role in to sealing my path. During a month's immersion into the philosophy and practise of yoga, I learned of a culinary school in New York City which trained its chef in health supportive cooking. It seemed too good to be true, like finding a piece of home. I studied at the Natural Gourmet Institute as a health supportive chef and treasured every moment of the adventure.
The final piece of the puzzle was the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. I knew that I wanted to work not only as a chef but as a health coach, and my studies with IIN have tied all these threads together so beautifully.
I can't wait to see what happens next, I so hope that I can be a part of your journey.
