After university and a 20-year global business career, I became ill with ME/CFS so returned home to Devon, and used a holistic approach to regain physical health, emotional wellbeing, and spiritual connection. Inspired to share my journey with others and by my family’s love and knowledge of Dartmoor, I retrained as a Walking Guide, Nature-Connection Facilitator, and Health and Life Coach.

Rather than the route-marches of my younger days, my walks are designed to offer an immersive experience that invite a deeper (re)connection with our bodies, communities, and the land so that we can be happier, healthier, and inspired to care for our natural world. Walks can be gentle or more strenuous; for adults or families; and focus on a range of subjects that include history/archaeology, flora (including wild foods) and fauna, prehistoric sacred sites, myths and legends, wild swimming, farming, navigation, mindfulness, and more.

Anyone who joins my walks and experiences reports a greater sense of wellbeing as well as enjoyment, fun and learning. I hope you’ll join me soon to explore some of England’s most stunning coastal paths, majestic moors, and tumbling rivers.
