Our process encompasses four phases:

'Contact' Phase

 

Contact is made between the PTSD sufferer and The Mountain Way

'Open Door' Phase

 

Preliminary assistance, visits, discovery - working towards commitment from the sufferer

'The Experience' Phase

 

A two-week tailored programme held in France or Spain delivered by a mentor.  A variety of techniques are used before the veteran reaches their 'Resolution' point

'Pathway' Phase

 

The beginning - but never ending - phase of the post-traumatic growth journey.  Closely supervised for the first six months, then routine and regular contact, support and encouragement

Mountains

Why does our process work?

Empathy

Andy suffered for 30 years during his process of self-healing - he went the 'Long Way Round'.

He knows what is required of a mentor.

Communication

Andy is a veteran. 

 

He speaks the same language as you.

Environment

Away from your normal environment and in a different, beautiful country.  

The right space in which to begin the process.

One-on-One 

Concentrated time spent together.  Learning new tools that will assist your recovery.
