I still to this day remember my first venture up Helvellyn, which would officially be the first ever mountain I would climb.

I was truly nervous of doing something so far out of my comfort zone. I wasn’t particularly fit, and I kept worrying about the weather, the height, the distance and pretty much everything that could possibly go wrong.

And, of course, nothing did go wrong and we saw brilliant blue skies the whole day. That feeling after we’d completed the hike was something else. The achievement, the new-found confidence. It left me feeling more alive and more connected to myself than I had felt in a long time. Surrounded by magnificent scenery, fresh air and nothing but the sound of my breath and my feet against the earth.

Hiking has become a huge part of my life and it is what I do whenever I feel the need to reconnect to myself.

As a health coach I believe that a healthy life involves far more than just eating well and taking regular exercise. It’s about the whole package, mind, body and soul. I would love for you to come and join me for what will be more than just a hiking experience…

…it’s an opportunity to nourish the soul.
