One of our Ship’s Medics, Sophie Redlin, has written a blog post for Winston Churchill Memorial Trust. In this blog Sophie talks about ‘emotional safety in the wilderness’.
Here is an extract from her blog:
During the Covid-19 pandemic, nature has played a key role in supporting our everyday wellbeing and it has a further part to play in ensuring longer-term healing and building resilience. However, to get the most from what nature has to offer, without putting ourselves at undue risk, it is vital that our experiences in natural spaces are emotionally and physically safe.
"Coping strategies learned in extreme settings can be applied throughout our lives, building long-lasting resilience, confidence and self-esteem." - Sophie Redlin
