We’re running 2 adventures in 2019 – one in May and one in September. Please contact us for details.
My Great Escape adventures are an opportunity for domestic abuse survivors to get away from the pressures of day-to-day life and get some space in the healing outdoors. It may be that you are new to mountains and countryside, you may be getting back into it, or you may be an old hand, we just want to provide the opportunity for you to lose yourself in nature (don’t worry our mountain leader will keep us on the right trail!).
They are not therapy sessions, although a trained therapist will be with us should you need or want to talk. The main focus of our trips is to challenge ourselves physically and, through this build confidence and self-esteem. If you want or need to talk, that’s cool – if you don’t want to, that’s cool too.
Our adventures all take place in the UK. Small groups spend 2 nights camping and cooking over an open fire, with the day in the middle spent hiking in some of the UK’s most beautiful mountainous landscapes. Adventures have no more than 8 participants, and a Mountain Leader, a Therapist, and our two organisers will make up the rest of the team.
My Great Escape will take all steps possible to keep you safe – we will not reveal dates, routes or locations to anyone outside of My Great Escape, but we can’t guarantee your safety, so please think carefully about if you are ready for the adventure.
If this is not the time for you – stay in touch and hopefully, we can help at a later date.
We are happy to discuss your individual situation and needs with you, so please get in touch if you have any questions.
