Wilderness Therapy

Journey inside, outside with IPSE Wilderness. Inspire yourself, prove yourself, serve yourself, empower yourself by taking part in a therapeutic walking pilgrimage for women.

We guide groups through different landscapes and moods, relishing the simplicity and freedom of a slow-paced walking journey with a shared purpose; to find well-being in life. We give time and space to de-tech, de-stress, de-contextualise and enjoy quiet immersion in nature, dropping into a softer rhythm of life where peace, joy and self-actualisation can be accessed. We use counselling skills, co-listening structures, meditative practices and sharing circles to help you to open up and speak their truth with honesty and integrity. We build isomorphic connections between the features of the physical landscape, and the emotional landscape of the participants, creating resonances which can generate insight and clarity. We create empowered, strongly-bonded groups which support you to walk the talk, enacting change in life back in the real world.

If I'm outside I'm happy! Fell running, mountain biking, climbing or skiing I just love getting out and pushing myself as hard as I can. As a women in adventure, I have found female role models really inspiring and motivating. There are definite moments I have really doubted myself and considered packing something in or giving up, but it's at these points looking to someone I can relate to, be that a friend or pro, really helps. Though this project I would love to find more of this type of relateable inspiration as well as being part of the wider movement to help remove any barriers to participation.
