"My sessions have really helped me to talk to someone and express my feelings with no judgement. She listens and helps, and this improves my mental health. Without this service I would be in a different head space "

Being Active, Being Present, Being Well

Overview of Mental Wellbeing & Physical Activity Sessions 

  • Positive mental health and wellbeing is developed in the natural environment. An environment where mindfulness and an appreciation of the outdoors is harnessed. 
  • Simple, fun physical activity is engaged in as a positive tool stimulating the mind and body. 
  • Trust is built quickly through active non-judgemental listening.
  • Conversations are open, honest and carefully managed to ensure individuals are safe, and well supported. 
  • 1:1 sessions are person centred and psycho-educational. They involve intuitive guidance, sharing of lived experience, and are underpinned by the '5 Ways to Wellbeing', 'Nature Connectedness' and use simple CBT tools. Practitioners are trauma-informed and skilled in the way in which they communicate with clients.
  • Clients are given a range of tools, personalised next steps and signposting so that they can grow, be resilient and continue their journey with self-confidence and improved wellbeing.

Providing timely access to trusted, proactive mental health and wellbeing support is central to the purpose of ActiveBeing.
