My name is Gabby Punch. I am delighted to be able to step in and organise walks and talks!
I am passionate about mental health, having had my own dark nights of the soul 17 years ago! and 30 years as a health professional.
I can share more of both when we walk together!
My background is primarily nursing - general, intensive care, and psychiatric.
Today I work from home as a psychotherapist, using the Human Givens model and as a nutritional coach. I also teach mental health in Marino College and I give presentations in the community.
So as you can see I love to talk about all aspects of health!..... and I love giving accurate, effective and up-to-date information, particularly as there is so much confusion out there on this particular subject!
I also enjoy walking in nature in the company of others so when I saw that this group needed an organizer I thought "yes" -this is a match for me!
Although I never got to walk with this group before I hope that I can follow in the footsteps of the last organizer, Charlotte, and continue to create and grow a safe space for easy chat, sharing of useful knowledge and sharing of techniques for keeping ourselves and each other well and happy, while also enjoying walking in the direction in which we want to be going!
Please feel free to email me or text me about any ideas, questions or feedback on the current events or on future walks.
I look forward to taking the first step with each one of you, and anticipate that our journey together will be transforming.
