French Camino Walk Sept 2019 

The Le Puy Chemin is definitely worth walking- lots of magnificent scenery, lots of history and historic buildings, amazing architectural structures for the times. Interesting paths through forests, farms, towns and cities. Plus interesting people along the way. The first 2 weeks are very steep, lots of going up and coming down steep rocky paths. We heard from other more seasoned hikers that they felt that the first 14 days of this Camino was the toughest hike they had ever done. So be prepared! It seems that 20km/day is a reasonable pace considering the hills and rocks, plus you also want to have time to stop and enjoy the scenery along the way as well as when you get to each days destination.

Sometimes the book/maps/apps overestimate how long it takes to get from town to town, - be warned!
This part of France seems to close fir the season from 1st October, not many places for food or accommodation are open. You can still find something but your choices are limited. Plus there are a lot less people doing the walk, so it could be quite lonesome.

The weather is still good though- not too hot or too cold.
Nearly everyone on a camino takes away something from it. In my case - a realisation that everyone is different, we all have our idiosyncrancies, and we all have our good points - appreciate diversity! And concentrate on the good in people.

Overall- it was a beautiful and worthwhile hike, can thoroughly recommend it. If anyone would like more information about this walk - I am always up for a chat! Au revoir,  A bientot.

Overcoming anxiety is possible

"When I first heard about Brain Coaching and what Helen does, I couldn’t wait to book in.  All my life I have struggled with anxiety, so to hear that Helen could possibly change this for me meant everything!  Helen and her amazing technique have completely changed my life for the better.   I’m a completely different person with how I see and how I react to every situation. Family and friends cannot believe all the positive changes since my first consultation.   My anxiety has completely disappeared and I strongly recommend Brain Coaching to anyone who suffers from Anxiety or other troubles they wish to overcome.   Thank you, Helen, for changing my life, you’re one in a million!!"
Kind regards,
