Story

I'm joining the Mind Over Mountains Project 500 to help them raise £500,000 by June 2025, so they can provide more mental health support in nature to everyone who needs it across the UK.

Mind Over Mountains is a ground-breaking charity helping people overcome mental health challenges through therapeutic outdoor experiences. Our specialist wellbeing walks and retreats bring together professionally guided hill-walking, mindfulness, and quality time with experienced coaches and counsellors.

COAST 500 Miles - SWCP 500 miles + NC500 miles

My challenge is to walk over 500 miles of the South West Coastal Path SWCP500 over the next 12 months in different sections over different weekends with friends.

And then I plan to cycle the North Coast NC500 around the coastline of North Scotland in April 2025 over 12 days with a group of friends.

I have suffered with mental health challenges and Crohn's myself over the years and getting outdoors and being in nature has been an important of my recovery and healing.

I now work as a mental health therapeutic coach, eco therapist and forest therapy guide helping and supporting people navigate their own mental health challenges.

I was on the inaugural Mind Over Mountain retreat in Lake District at Skiddaw Bunkhouse back in 2018 and always wanted to give back to the charity and so I hope these challenges and the funds raised will support other people to be able to receive critical support and help through the charity Mind Over Mountain.

I have knee issue and joint issues and so no idea if I can do this but I will have my dog Ruby Rose as an enthusiastic companion to join me for the walks and hopefully some friends too.
