I find the outdoors to be an uplifting environment, a place where I get clarity of thought and improvement of my mood, whatever the weather. I love the beauty and tranquility of nature and find it has a calming effect on my body and mind.
I have spent many years, in the past, leading Forest School sessions, as an Early Years teacher and have been privileged to witness the benefits of learning outdoors. After leaving the profession, I believed that in becoming a facilitator, I could help adults to reap the benefits of time spent immersed in nature as well as doing something that I’m passionate about.
From my first session, I felt embraced by a very supportive network and discovered that I could just be myself, that I had the time and space to explore who I wanted to be. By learning how to ‘be present’ I can recognise the signs of running on empty and how to bring a sense of balance and peace to my life. I have had a plaque on my wall for many years that reads, ‘Live the life you love’ and it is only now that I am truly able to do this.
