Everyone should do this retreat! A real eye opener even if you think it’s not for you. Held in a beautiful location, fun yet informative. The staff are super lovely too. And just you wait til you try a bliss ball! More...

I recently went on the thera-sea course and found it a hugely valuable experience. I couldn't recommend it enough! The setting was beautiful and the whole experience left me feeling relaxed and refreshed, but more than that, I have taken away knowledge about simple things that are causes of stress, also coping mechanisms that I have learnt to implement into my day to day life. Since putting katy's lessons into practice things have improved greatly. I can't believe I was existing in such a fog for so long. The course I did was one night and I am amazed how much such a short time has altered my thinking and changed my life for the better. I truly didn't realise how much I needed this! Katy has a wealth of knowledge and is friendly and very welcoming. The food was fantastic and the activities were great. I think everyone would benefit from thera-sea! Xx More...

A 1-1 session with Katy is not like any other I have experienced before, no clinical vibe and no judgements. The best explanation would be that it’s like talking to a close friend who has a vast knowledge and experience in dealing with stress and stress related issues.

Working on solutions to specific behaviours and giving me the tools to implement the change in my daily life. Katy worked with me towards the remedy opposed to telling me what to do, this in itself started the process moving in a positive way.

I was in desperate need to deal with my stress, at times lost in fear, anxiety and depression. I found Katy very informative, knowledable and with a vast array of pertinent experience in the field! Katy specialise in tools and action plans with guidance and a practical approach to day to day solutions that work. Stress is all around us on different levels and layers which triggers both consciouse and subconsciouse effects, sometimes the rut runs so deep that i get stuck in it feeling helpless, confused and frustrated. I am allready more confident that i can create thoughts and behaviour which will enable me to break free from the rut and the destructive ripple effect stress has on my life. Her passion for stress release through excersice and particular the natural healing element of the sea is very powerful.

I felt as though something had reset in my being and calm had returned. Katy also offered one on one, rapid solution therapy which was simple and deeply effective. I highly recommend it.

An awesome couple of days spent on the banks of the River Fal. I live in Cornwall, but had never been to 7th Rise. The location is incredible and the course content is really thought provoking. Katy and the team have worked hard to create something truly unique and beneficial. More...

Didn't realise quite how much I needed this. My two nights with Thera-Sea were incredible - I left with a far better understanding of the signs of stress (many of which I had no idea about) and how to deal with them. It also helps that the entire experience was brilliantly fun, and that Katy is inspiringly knowledgable, professional, and totally awesome too. More...

I’ve now been on a couple of Thera-Sea courses and have really enjoyed them both. Whilst I’ve never really considered myself a stressed person, I have been amazed how a few simple techniques have helped to improve my sleep, productivity and general well-being. Being in such amazing locations really allowed the group to relax away from distractions of day to day life. Katy’s passion and experience, combined with Marks amazing knowledge of bushcraft really made this a valuable and enjoyable course which I highly recommend. More...

Exciting and educational in equal parts, I found my two days with the Thera-Sea team to be hugely beneficial. The opportunity to step away from technology and back to nature for a couple of days was really rewarding. Enjoyable from beginning to end.

I don't consider myself a stressed person, but even I was surprised at how much I benefited from the insight and education of Katy's excellent course. The natural surroundings had a lasting calming effect on me, and two highlights were the wild swim (with a seal that popped up to say hello!) and the group activities. Also had one of the best nights sleep I can remember in a long time. I'd recommend Thera-Sea wholeheartedly. More...

The support from Mark, with surf tips and guidance was a massive bonus and i felt very safe. After the surf it felt as though something had reset in my being and calm had returned. Katy also offered one on one, rapid solution therapy which was simple and deeply effective. The food was deliciouse. I am so greatful for this day and all it has given me, i highly recommend it.

This is exactly what we all need in this fast paced, modern world, a 'preventative' method to stress and anxiety, rather than 'shutting the gate after the horse has bolted' and throwing pharmaceuticals at people, with a return to a simplistic lifestyle, of a healthy body and mind and routine. Katy ties this in with immersing yourself into the natural fun activity of Surfing, which has many other benefits of well being . The course was informative and relaxed giving insight and links to other avenues. Comfortable location with awesomely tasty food after a fun surf! Plug yourself into the Ocean, reconnect with nature.... and feel the difference. Surfing is my therapy � More...

As a serving member of the Fire service and an Ex Royal Marine commando Katie gave me some vital tools for dealing with stress managment in the work place as well as at home. The course was held in a very relaxed environment and I was extremely comfortable talking about my stress issues with Katie and the other members of the course. This was all topped off by a fun surf and some amazing grub. I would recommend this course to anyone and everyone. More...

Set in a relaxed and friendly environment my one day masterclass with Thera-sea was most beneficial. Katy is very knowledgable and explained in ways easy to understand about stress, it's causes and effects, ways of managing stress, the importance of self preservation and the science and biology behind it. All of the information from the course was of great benefit to understanding the reasons for some of my behaviour and how best to manage and prevent it. Through my experience this type of therapy or counselling is not easily accessible and has a long waiting period. I found this a unique and informative experience with a non clinical feel, the food provided was delicious and catered for specific dietary requirements, with facilities and venue equally as good. Katy's focus on lifestyle medication I can see being a more permanent long term resolve for me and the realisation of effects of water sports in a natural environment was awakening, opposed to any short term gain from prescription medication. I would certainly recommend these workshops to others. More...

Q&A

I am passionate about giving people the tools they require overcome a wide variety of difficulties such as stress, anxiety, depression, OCD, PTSD, trauma, abuse, relationship difficulties, anger management, phobias and addiction.

Good mental and physical health has become far too confusing and we’re up against lots of contradictory information.


The good news is that there is a proven way to successfully treat mental health. It’s called progressive lifestyle medicine.

Thera-Sea is dedicated to this new and effective way of thinking.

I am a specialist mental health nurse with over eleven years experience.
Due to demand on the NHS most people don't get to see a mental health nurse as we are only available to those in crisis. I am passionate about working in prevention of mental health and want to share my knowledge with people to enable them to change their lives.

I have worked with a variety of clients with varying needs. This experience includes working on acute wards to psychiatric intensive care, child and adolescent mental health services, community mental health teams and residential care for young offenders.

I have trained in a variety of therapies including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Cognitive Analytical Therapy and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. I am also trained in solution-focused brief therapy and progressive lifestyle medicine, which over the years I have seen the best long-term outcomes for patients and this is my preferred approach.

My interest in mental health began during childhood and I have been passionately committed to improving mental health services ever since.

From my professional and personal experience, I believe for many, becoming healthy is getting for too complicated.

Due to my passion for helping people to improve well-being, I now offer private sessions that aim to change outdated preconceptions.
