Patsy’s Pole and Pace – Nordic Walking in Mid Wales

I am a qualified Nordic walking Instructor and a Chartered Psychologist with an interest in Eco-coaching. I am passionate about the positive psychology of ‘green – blue spaces’ and of the benefits to social, emotional, and physical well-being of exercising in outdoor environments.

Based in Newtown in Mid Wales, not far from the English border, and the gateway to the stunning scenery of Mid Wales.
