WAVES OF CONNECTION SURF THERAPY
Broaden the Horizon
Welcome to Waves of Connection, our aim is to use the therapeutic benefits of the Ocean to help our participants cope with a variety of challenges. Take a look at our story and please get in touch via our contacts page, should you require any further information.
I have been a keen surfer since the age of 13, catching the bus from my home town to Aberavon in South Wales after school to enjoy the benefits of the Ocean. It wasn't until I was a little older that I realised the Ocean was my escape, there was something about it which kept drawing me back, I was hooked. The theory of 'Flow' pioneered by Mihaly Csikszenmihalyi involves being fully immersed in an activity, where time passes by in the blink of an eye, you receive immediate feedback, you're fully concentrating on one task, the activity is challenging and most of all the activity is intrinsically rewarding. I challenge you to find a person who has not experienced these conditions whilst surfing. Upon more research and training in Counselling and Well Being I couldn't help but be drawn to the fact that sometimes people need an experience in a natural environment to help them get over the many hurdles modern life can throw at us and this is how Waves of Connection was born. We're a Community Interest Company, which means we're a non profit making organisation.
