About your Mentor

About your Mentor

Julia

I am a wilderness therapy facilitator, with a background in teaching and expedition leading. Having grown up on a diet of Type 2 fun, served as an army cadet officer, travelled extensively and led youth expeditions all over the world, I walked a solo pilgrimage of the Camino de Santiago, which inspired me to commit to a life of simplicity and freedom. My passion is to empower people to experience the positive benefits of time spent immersed in nature, to come into a more fulsome awareness of their own nature, and to access joy for themselves through a life of self-expression, honesty and courage. I grew up on the Norfolk coast and this is where I feel most at home, most free and most comfortable. My connection with this landscape enables me to encourage others to step into uncertainty, so that they can reclaim for themselves a sense of confidence and clarity, within the wilderness. This experience is an ipse wilderness trip for Love Her Wild. Love Her Wild is a not-for-profit inclusi...

What we'll do

Each day, after a morning meeting, we set off hiking self-sufficiently, with all we need carried on our backs. The walking route takes us through ancient woodland, protected marshland, along cliff-top paths and onwards to the sea. We'll walk barefoot on the beach, paddle through the shallows, picnic in sand dunes and wend our way through pine forests, along country tracks and boardwalks. Oh, and it's Norfolk, so there are no hills! Along the way, we'll use aspects of the landscape around us to inspire us to have meaningful conversations. There'll be interesting questions to discuss, topics to reflect on and invitations to share your thoughts. There's also quiet time just to ponder and wander, as well as some fun nature connection games and mindfulness activities to awaken your senses to your surroundings. Interspersed with the walk will be some light instruction on wilderness skills, such as rucksack packing, map reading and kit. We also litter-pick along the way, making sure we leav...

Suitable for

Women who like walking and enjoy connecting to other people and to nature! This trip is suitable for beginners (i.e. women who haven't hiked much in the past) but you need to be reasonably fit and able to walk 11 miles in a day, carrying a rucksack. You'll need to be able to walk a mile in about 20 minutes without getting out of breath. Taking place over the spring equinox, this trip supports women to share with others their experience of change, mapped onto a beautiful walking route along a constantly changing coastline. This theme of change runs throughout the trip, so it's great for people who might be starting a new job, ending a relationship or entering a new phase of life. You’ll be heard and understood, and you’ll end the trip with a team at your back ready to support your next step.

Strengths to develop

We will be walking 33 miles over 4 days, carrying day-packs, putting one foot in front of the other, mirroring the process of change and inhabiting the concept of edginess by walking around a variable, multi-faceted coastline.
