Passion – Awareness – Respect – Authenticity
My genuine passion I’ve told sets me apart. Three decades of professional experience working closely with people of all ages. Not just doing my job well, but I had to be passionate about it. I don’t need to tell people that I am passionate about guiding and consulting others to discover the extraordinary benefits of hiking, it oozes from every part of my being.
Over 15 years assessment and mentoring experience within the disability, mental health, youth, training and recreation sectors. My drive to know more about the mental benefits of hiking, after my 2016 solo end-to-end of the 1000km Bibbulmun Track. Our world class long distance hiking trail has become my backyard and where my soul is. I have gained an awareness and presence that I now share with others.
I bring authenticity into everything I do and encourage others to discover theirs. It is this that assists others to step outside their comfort zone to create a new level of self awareness and greatness. A respect for the individual, even during a group hike your own journey is encouraged to blossom.
As the majority of people that join me have little or no hiking experience, preparation is crucial. I offer upto two Zoom meetings prior to a hike to assist you to be ready so you are safe and more enjoy the experience.
It is my skill and experience in assessment that gives me the confidence to follow my instincts in how best to guide you and/or the group. Every person and group learns differently at their own pace, so hiking programs are fluid enough to adapt so you gain more from the journey.
I have a strong belief in doing things right, for you, our business partners, government regulators, our community and myself.
I have been, I am still and always will be on a journey to my perfect self, come join me.
