Verity's Story

Testimonials

 

My trip with Climbing Out was absolutely brilliant. We were all pushed out of our comfort zones and achieved things we never thought we could. I gained confidence in myself that I didn't know I had, confidence to keep going and not give up. Seeing everyone come out of their shells and grow bolder as the week went on gave me such a good feeling, and I went home happy, exhausted, and desperately proud of everyone I was with.

I always used to do a lot of  hill walking, but since having cancer I thought my body had gone to waste – what I’ve realised this week is that my body is still the same as it was before the cancer and I can still do the things I used to do.

This week has changed my life, it has made me realise that I can do so much more than I thought I could.....from now on I’m going to start saying yes to life and I’m going to pursuit my dreams and enjoy life.

Before coming I was socially awkward and struggled making good friends. Since meeting the Climbing Out crew, I've met great new people who understand what we're all going through. I'm now more confident in myself and believe I can do more

When I heard about Climbing Out and was offered a place on the programme I was really interested in having a go at the outdoor activities but what I got out of it was so much more, it changed my life. Climbing Out showed me that some of the toughest obstacles people can face are just that, obstacles to be overcome and left behind.

I am a 29 year old man who received a traumatic brain injury and was finding it hard to meet people with similar characteristics that would understand how I feel. Going to Climbing Out has opened my eyes to the fact that I am not alone in feeling like this and that I am able to do activities that I didn’t think I could.

Climbing Out opens people’s minds and shows them that they are not alone...

Before Climbing Out I spent most of my time indoors, I had low confidence, and next to no motivation. 
I decided to come on this trip to rekindle my love for outdoor sports. Having been here for a few days, I realise I have gained so much more than a new appreciation for the outdoors!
I have met some amazing people, who, having been through the same experiences as me, will be life long friends. I have also built up my confidence and I'm more willing to try new things and push my limits.
I can now leave here with a new way of thinking and a new approach to life

I just want to say thank you again for climbing out, I feel like a gazillion times better than I have for almost a year now! I didn't imagine I'd feel this well for a while and it's really helped just being surrounded by people that understand. Since coming back I've been running, I've taken some surfing lessons I've got a paddle boarding lesson today and kayaking tomorrow. This is all stuff I wouldn't have even thought to do before! So thanks for taking me with you, it's made a phenomenal difference in my life, I'm really shocked

By the end of the week I felt like the person I wanted to be. I’m now ready to go home and face whatever life has to throw at me.
