I am Caroline Hart, founder of Hart and Soul Walks. I love being outside, particularly in mountains and getting others outside too. I am also passionate about looking after both our hearts and our souls.
I was inspired by the mountains of Scotland I encountered as a teenager when I did an Outward Bound course and have worked in Outdoor centres both in NI and Scotland, as well as in Sweden. I became a teacher but my real passion has always been my involvement in the hill walking expeditions I have organised for my pupils and increasingly for my friends and now my clients.
The meals and evenings on these trips are always such a special time - people bonding over good food and common purpose in the day's activity.
I have become more interested in health and well being over the past few years and have gained experience and qualifications in counselling, coaching and mentoring, mindfulness and life coaching, as well as changing to mostly plant based food which does not include refined sugar; this makes sense for our bodies and our planet.
Hart and Soul Walks has come out of this journey and my desire to help other people to reconsider their lifestyles.
