We asked Sarah the following three questions:
1. What are you into right now, what’s your latest passion and why?
This years NAIDOC Theme was announced, Heal Country and it resonates with me as an Aboriginal woman, a health practitioner, and recent Diploma Qualified Wayapa Practitioner. The importance of caring for Country as an extension of caring for ourselves.
When we Heal Country from acts such as caring for sacred sites that tell the rich and complex narrative of Australia’s Indigenous people through to reducing our own sustainable footprint, we are caring not only for Country but for each other. Simple acts such as choosing to take a bag with you when you is caring for Country but also caring for your fellow human beings. And the feeling of doing something really small that has a really BIG ripple on effect is an amazing and simple way to fill our own wellbeing cups up. We also know that when we are exposed to natural environments it has scientific health benefits from playing in dirt supporting children’s immune systems through to releasing endorphins when we hug a tree!
Heal Country is about recognising that perhaps the practices of Indigenous cultures were far more sophisticated than they seemed, they did not need technology, finances and progress, they were content to care for and nurture Country as they knew that nurtured them. I honestly believe science is starting to catch up to our ancient aquatic epigenetics! But that may just be a whole other post!
2. What do you like most about being part of the NHC space?
The support, warmth, and amazing diverse energy of the practitioners I share space with is what makes Newcastle Health Collective so special. As practitioners we can create a clinic room/space in almost any building, to create a healing space is a much bigger challenge. And Lucy has met that challenge head on. I believe that health is a holistic, collective practice and that same ethos is shared by the practitioners at NHC. As a First Nations person the genuine acceptance, interest and respect for my culture and cultural ways of healing has been 100% positive and this creates a culturally safe and responsive space for my clients in their healing and wellbeing journeys.
3. What’s a common piece of advice you give to your clients?
We all have mental health! I think we often think of mental health as something we have when it goes wrong, or we need extra support processing our emotions. Our mental health is always present; we must maintain it just as we do our physical health. I often talk about the traffic light zones, green, yellow and red.
The green zone is when things are going well, we consider ourselves to have “no mental health”, yellow zones are when we may feel a bit off and we know something isn’t quite right, but we think “oh its not like I have a mental health problem/illness” and then red zone is when we see crisis or overflow of emotions. It’s often in this red zone that we consider our situation as a “mental health” issue for the first time and may or may not seek support.
I work with clients to ACTIVELY maintain positive mental health and wellbeing IN the GRENN ZONE! We can’t maintain green zones permanently, but we can strive for the balance of spending more time in the green zone than the yellow and red zones. We can develop a greater self-awareness of the warning signals that we may be entering a yellow zone, reaching out and asking for support or help can stop us slipping into the red zone…or limit the amount of time we experience it.
