My name is Hugo Forrester. Being close to nature is a key part of my own self-care strategy. I like to be in the sea as often as possible and when on dry land I love to be on the cliffs or beaches with my family and dog.

Mostly at Pip's Place but also in local organisations delivering mental health awareness sessions.
