returned to work too soon and this led me deeper into the depths of my depression."I was challenged by my therapist to find something to focus on, a hobby or wellbeing opportunity."Adrift from work and undergoing psychotherapy I was challenged by my therapist to find something to focus on, a hobby or wellbeing opportunity. I left that session and headed to Waterstones.
I’d taken up carving following an earlier episode of depression where Ray Mears and Bruce Parry accompanied me on my journey to recovery from my lounge. This time I found myself drawn to a book around another heritage craft, spoon carving, or as a friend called it, ‘a hobby for the apocalypse’.In the three weeks I managed back at work for the NHS I had supported a young man on to a conservation daytrip to Tarn Howes, The Lake District with Mind in Furness and the National Trust.
During that day it felt as if it was not just beneficial for my client but this was a wellbeing opportunity for me.There was a county council health and wellbeing coach on the trip who contacted me later about my growing interest in the restorative qualities of nature and the heritage crafts that had helped my recovery. Kev Bell would figure as a great support to myself and someone who would present me with my opportunity to attend Rusland Horizons, the wildlife trust between Coniston Water and Windermere in the Lake District.Little did I know that my path was going to take me into the group leader role for Mind’s Conservation programme.I was unable to recuperate in time to retain my job and had to accept that for now my career was over!I ventured back to Mind In Furness to explore the potential for volunteering during my recovery.
