Hi Sally, it's great to be here in Scotland, can you tell us a little more about you and what you do here?
We are a team of women in South East Scotland who run accredited surf therapy courses for women recovering from trauma.
My name is Sally, founder and one of the directors and I am passionate about nature, surfing and the profound mental and physical health benefits that surfing can bring.
So cool! How many people has your organisation helped through the joy of surfing?
As we celebrate our 5th year as a non-profit organisation we have worked with over 2000 women during this time, many of who are regularly involved in our community sessions or part of the volunteer, steering group or facilitator team.
That is genuinely incredible! Tell us more about how the group works?
We are inspired and motivated by being part of a bigger collaborative that stretches across the world- powerful, change-makers, using embodied leadership techniques that support ourselves, our team and our community locally and internationally.
It’s incredible work to be part of and to see the changes that are happening in our own lives, and in other peoples lives as we look after ourselves and align with our purpose, health, well-being, nature and spirituality gives a depth of meaning to life, community and connection that’s hard to put into words.
How can people help or get involved?
We are always stoked to have visitors, plus the surf here in Scotland is THE BEST! We are are currently running a Crowdfunder, if you’d like to support our work. We are grateful for any help.
