Our first evening event of 2020 welcomes a really wonderful speaker Dawn Cleary who works internationally as an intuitive counsellor – here is Dawns own introduction:- ‘I am a naturally gifted intuitive counsellor and healer. My grandmother had this ability too and recognised it in me, she told me it would blossom from a chrysalis into a butterfuly and she she was right! The best way to describe how I use my intuition in a session is probably to say that I can see, hear and feel events. What is happening to my client in their world is happening to me. So I use this information to see what my clients are facing and work with them to choose the best way forward. My sessions are about helping people to use their own inner strength to reach their goals, Intuition is like knowing without knowing if that makes sense and it comes down to trust. As an intuitive counsellor I use my intuition and guides to help my clients gain clarity on aspects of their lives and cut through the noise of busy lives to find calm.

I am so excited to welcome as our first speaker of 2020 Paralympian
Bethany Woodward’s whose Lifetime Achievements include T37 400m IPC World Champion
2011, 4x100m IPC World Bronze Medallist, Paralympic T37 200m Silver Medallist
& 4x100m Paralympic Bronze Medallist.
Bethany says, “Paralympic sport is about disabled people pushing themselves and overcoming their diversity”. So why was it she handed a medal back? Come along and hear her extraordinary story and how life events led her to being part of the wonderful community of Sturts Farm and Gulivers Farm Shop & Café at West Moors. Here is a quote taken from The Times on Sunday which was written by well renowned journalist David Walsh.
‘’There are lots of sportspeople I’ve admired.
None, though, that I consider a hero. On the field they sometimes do things
that are portrayed as heroic, but that’s just the excess of our profession.
There is a woman who fought for her sport in a way that was different. She lost
the battle and at 24 walked away. A double Olympic medalist who couldn’t take
it any more. There’s never been anyone in sport I’ve admired more than Bethany
Come along to hear Bethany’s story and she will take you through her journey of being a Paralympic athlete to helping build a successful Social Enterprise.
