Our accredited surf therapy curriculum and programmes are rooted in somatic, trauma-informed, nature, and community therapy models. The programmes best support the holistic healing of participants and their communities overcoming various forms of trauma and its mental health effects.
Our programmes are developed and delivered by a team of facilitators, volunteers and participants.
As a volunteer for a surf project for kids and young people with autism for over a decade, as well as her own experiences, have ignited her passion for the wellbeing-promoting outdoor activities and nature-based therapies. Drawing on the magic of the ocean to help recover, connect, rejoice, belong, challenge and grow, and to help facilitate such for others, has brought her to the Groundswell Community Project.
Rediscovering my love of the sea and feeling the strong connection with nature helped me invisiage a happy and meaningful future in a way I hadn't been able to before.
I am so grateful to now be in a position to volunteer on future courses and help other women experience the magic that I did.
I'm Hannah, I,m a business coach who encourages women to get unstuck and live more.
I believe that modern life can pull us away from who we are and from making deeper connections.
I support the work that Groundswell Scotland does through coaching because I believe in the power of the ocean and the importance of connecting with ourselves, the environment and each other
I believe my calling as a Psychotherapist, Trainer and Mindful Compassion coach is simple – to serve others.
I love Groundswell community and I am passionate about inspiring change in people and supporting them to excel and transform.
I love being, and belong, in the sea. I was born to be a mermaid!
I believe the combination of mother nature, the ocean, our universe, and each other, that can be a hugely nurturing resource and teacher for all of us; when we open our minds and our hearts wide enough.
Connection, compassion and being a real human bean is what makes my soul alive.
