. I am continually developing my skills and interests in short courses and study in healing, change and well being.

I see walking as an art form in itself. A time for space, peace, to hear stories of the land and those that worked and walked on it before us.

Walking is, for me, essential for creativity, healing and change, whether in nature or cities, with people or alone.

I am grateful have been able to share my love of walking on ancient paths in the exceptional landscape of Ithaca and to have time to walk on the South downs and once again in the Yorkshire dales and Scotland and am now so excited about community walks for mental health and anxiety in Tunbridge Wells.

I am passionate about the crossovers of: the creative arts, functional movement, psychology, walking and writing and the power they give to gain new perspectives and well-being for the individual and society.
