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. With wide experience in facilitating workshops and empowerment circles for women and girls, my passion is to encourage women to experience for themselves 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 the Peak Pilgrimage three times, I know intimately the power of this stunning landscape to challenge, comfort and empower, and I am excited to share these gifts with women who are looking for an emotional and physical challenge.

Learning aims

To walk a physical journey of 35 miles over 5 days along the Peak District Pilgrimage route.

Strengths to develop

We will be walking 35 miles over 5 days, carrying day-packs, putting one foot in front of the other, following the valleys of the Peak District, whilst sharing our lived experiences of gender, femininity and bodily identity.
