Walking to Wellbeing is a two-day, residential workshop at Holy Rood House, Thirsk, from 15th-17th July, 2022. The workshop combines countryside walking and guided group discussion with wholesome, home-cooked shared meals in a welcoming residence, set in beautiful, mature grounds.
Led by two experienced therapists and keen walkers, Tom Livesey & Julian Penton, the workshop is for people for whom life’s inevitable challenges are currently feeling overwhelming – perhaps because of intense stress, a broken relationship, loss of a loved one, loneliness or isolation, unemployment or through having to endure meaningless work.
Walking to Wellbeing provides the opportunity to step back from your challenges, step into a kind, safe & healing environment and step out into nature through the North Yorkshire countryside.
For two days, Tom & Julian will combine the healing effects of physical exercise with the opportunity to work out your next steps to wellbeing – alongside no more than seven other people facing similar challenges. And all within a relaxed, friendly atmosphere with wholesome, home-cooked food and led by experienced therapists & walkers.

Who can attend?

The workshop is designed for men & women aged 21 or older who are experiencing emotional distress – such as depression and/or anxiety – but are not in crisis. You should comfortably be able to walk for 6 to 8 miles on successive days through rolling countryside.


The cost is £295 for an en-suite, single room or £265 for a single room with a bathroom (used by no more than one other person). All meals are included in the price.
