Carol ReesRock Outdoors Partner, Instructor
As well as the sheer enjoyment of being outdoors, and the excitement, adrenaline and sense of achievement participating in new activities can bring, Carol is passionate about what the outdoors can offer people in terms of personal development, confidence-building, self-esteem, and its contribution to our mental health. As an educator Carol's focus has always been on helping people overcome or circumnavigate barriers to learning, and changing mindsets from 'I can't' to 'I can't yet'. Her own experience of the outdoors makes Carol passionate about the role the outdoors can play in breaking barriers, creating new positive self beliefs, and the positive physical and psychological effects the magic of the outdoors offers. With Carol's background in experiential learning and inquiry-based curriculum development, she is well placed to mesh the outdoors with learning and growth, and creates Rock Outdoors' bespoke developmental programmes to meet the individual needs of each group.
