This week’s guest is Dr Catherine Kelly, an academic, a Brighton based wellbeing practitioner, member of the wild swimming group Salty Seabirds, and author of Blue Spaces: How and Why Water Can Makes you Feel Better; something she discovered when her mother died and she was drawn to the rural Irish coastline to heal.
Lou and Catherine discuss the trauma that brought her to the sea to heal, and later a terrifying near death experience of water, and finally back to to being at one with the sea as an everyday companion. Now as a well-being practitioner she is in the business of helping people find whatever it is that brings them calm, and often that is in or near water.
Catherine says "If you want to get beach body ready, bring your body to the beach."
She shows us that no matter our circumstances or environment, we can all seek out bluespaces to help soothe our minds, bodies and souls.
