Since doing the walk and talks with ActiveBeing and the group sessions, I feel like I have overcome so much in the short space of time. To have someone that I can relate with has really helped me mentally and emotionally. Through the use of shared experiences I have become more confident in talking about past and present experiences. To be out in the open space has also encouraged my fitness, and helped with my depression, it has given me a sense of purpose and something I look forward to. I respond more to this than I have with counselling and therapy in a room setting. Not only that, Charlie has given skills and apps that help when I am alone or otherwise at home, this has given me confidence to do my day to day things knowing that I now have the tools to control things, like panic attacks which happen regularly for me. I wish to be able to continue this journey and eventually over come my depression and anxiety."
I joined the group thinking I would not be able to stand on the board, for paddle boarding and I did on the first week. It has really helped my well being as I’m a full time carer for my partner after he had a stroke and also have two young children. I really looked forward to our sessions as it’s a me time. It has made me a lot more confident to try new things and also to be able to talk to people about how we were feeling. Absolutely loved this.
It has made me leave the house, and being in nature has had a calming effect on me and made me want to open up more. Sometimes I wouldn't of left the house or spoken with anyone of it wasn't for this.
