My name is Sarah and I live in Northumberland with my children Louis 10 and Josephine 7. I was first introduced to sea dipping by WSW Leader Laura. We began to meet at Cresswell regularly and soon had a group of amazing ladies join us on our cold water dipping journey.
I was hooked from the first time my skin hit the freezing water! I felt free and so completely relaxed, it was the best therapy I had ever experienced! My hectic life being a single parent and working shifts as a paramedic often took its toll and I would find I felt tense and stressed allot and couldn’t fully relax.
We did a sunset dip early this summer, it was an amazing experience shared with an amazing group of ladies. I have never experienced anything like it, it was quite an emotional experience for me as I realised how far I had come since that first dip.
No matter how long you’ve been part of the WSW group everyone is so welcoming and kind, we have such a laugh! I feel like I’d lost a part of the old me and started a new phase of my life since I started dipping. I want to support and encourage others to start their sea dipping journey. It’s completely changed my life.
