What we do

Before you book any of the below, you will be invited to attend a free one-hour assessment to see if Best Foot Forward is right for you.

After this assessment, Tom will provide you with a no-obligation recommendation, bespoke to you that will be based on the walk-coaching packages below.

If you wish to book any of the Mini-Retreats, Corporate or Tuition packages, then please contact Tom for further initial discussion.

“Tom listens without judgement and uses his extensive training to coach and direct you towards finding your own solutions, or just allows you time to talk through what is on your mind, offering clarification and validation of your thoughts.”

Mini Retreats

Two or three-day backpack: As above but further afield into the Peak District. Moderate adventure. Either camping or overnight in a B&B.

Coast-to-coast route through Snowdonia: As with the Peak District, but more rugged and suited to the fitter individual.

Assisted Pilgrimage: Following a UK pilgrimage route, we’ll take a sacred walk for spiritual refreshment, personal discovery, exploration of faith, re-connection with self, earth, faith, landscape or identity. No religious affiliation necessary or expected.

Mind and Direction Remapping for couples: An opportunity for you and your partner to reassess the core values underpinning your relationship, that may have been forgotten due to raising a family or building a career. The aim is to create a fresh direction to remember what makes your partnership work so you can both face future life-changing moments head on.

Corporate Packages

Working in conjunction with your business, I’ll create a one or two day ‘walkshop’ to guide teams through discussion in the outdoors before arriving at a carefully chosen centre where our business training partner will develop new strategies and ideas with the team.

Great for businesses and organisations who want to create genuine working partnerships and break down barriers of communication.
