Hi I'm Doug, I've got a burning passion for helping people access the outdoors and nature. I love life and love sharing experiences with others, I'm at my best when I'm engaged in something outdoors and can see the joy in peoples faces when they feel safe to try something new and challenging.
I've been working in the outdoor industry since 2003 where I've had many roles spanning everything from camp counsellor in the USA to English teaching in China to snow skiing instructor and commercial outdoor adventure guide.
Over the past decade I've committed myself to working with youth in the out of home care sector. I believe that an adventure therapy approach to engaging people to improve their mental and physical wellbeing to be very accessible and extremely successful. Being outside with a safe and nurturing person who can help guide you through new experiences can unlock such potential in people and give them a new perspective on how they see nature and how they experience the outdoors. I work very hard to make sure that I listen to what you need and meet you where you're at.
No adventure is too small, my priority is making it accessible to your level of comfort. I can also cater for those that wish to take it further and try something more challenging. What sets me apart is that I work hard to make your experience unique and 100 percent tailored to you or your group.
Get in contact to organise your first session with me, I can't wait to meet you.
