What is 'Breathe in the Brecks' all about?

This page is all about health and well-being in the Brecks. Being outdoors in the fresh air and near to nature is known to be incredibly beneficial for mental and physical well-being. The Brecks Fen Edge and Rivers Landscape Partnership is keen to explore all the opportunities provided by the scheme and it partners to support, enable and encourage people to learn about, and engage with nature, the landscape and its history in new ways, and with like-minded people.

 

Projects

Nearly all BFER projects have elements that supports well-being in some way. whether it's public events and guided walks in the wonderful Brecks landscape, the projects to undertake archaeological, historical or nature focussed research activities, learn new heritage craft and conservation skills or other mentally stimulating activities with like-minded people, or get stuck in to active projects like practical river restoration, surveying and habitat management. Even volunteering to litter pick  is not only great for your mental health (the satisfaction is enormous), and it gets you out in the landscape walking a bit as we well!!

Inspired to Change - Thetford

Feeling Stressed and Anxious? Have you lost your confidence?

 

At Inspired To Change, Rebecca Allen works with people just like you.

  • People who are suffering from stress and anxiety and don’t feel they’re coping well.
  • People who have lost their confidence and feel they’re not in control.
  • People who are struggling with an emotional or physical issue and have tried other methods to resolve it.
  • And people who feel unhappy or stuck and just want their life back.

She uses  clinically proven methods and techniques, which are based on the most modern neuroscientific research, to help you get your life back on track – feeling happy and confident and looking forward to a positive future.

 

And unlike most other forms of therapy, she can do this without any need to revisit the past.
