About your Mentor

About your Mentor


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.

Learning aims

To connect with our partners and discover new levels to our relationship.

Strengths to develop

We will be hiking in rugged terrain carrying all our camping equipment for a night in the wild.
