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. Having walked and cycled the South Downs for over a decade, I have woven together my love for the landscape with my passion for empowering young people to find a sense of equilibrium through prolonged immersion in the wilderness.

Learning aims

Strengths to develop
