away from the treadmill of life!

Welcome to our bespoke mountain leader services, where expertise meets experience to provide you with unforgettable outdoor adventures.

Our team boasts highly skilled mountain leaders, each with real-life experience and proven track records in navigating challenging terrains, leadership and personal development having featured in various articles within The Professional Mountaineer magazine over the previous years.

Whether you're planning company team building walks, charity fundraising challenges, or mountain trek expeditions, we cater to all sizes of activities with exceptional client feedback.

During the 2023 summer season alone, Jonathan - the founder of Walking With My Bear completed 34 National 3 Peaks, 8 Yorkshire 3 Peaks, and numerous other walks and challenges on client events. Our dedication is evident as we personally complete these feats alongside our clients, ensuring safety and satisfaction every step of the way.

What sets us apart is our commitment to comprehensive support, extending beyond the event itself. From tailored training plans to mental well-being considerations, we prioritize your holistic experience. 

Count on us for expert guidance on kit selection, insurance guidance, vaccination requirements for overseas expeditions, event and group management whilst promoting best practice and adhering to BS8848 standards for both UK and overseas events.

No two events are alike, and we understand the importance of personalized attention. This is why we don't advertise off-the-shelf packages on our website!

We prefer to have a detailed conversation with you on what you want to achieve, your requirements and level of service for your event or adventure.

Whether it's a risk-assessed Yorkshire 3 Peaks adventure or an ambitious journey to Kilimanjaro or Everest Base Camp, our experienced team is ready to turn your aspirations into realities.

Mindset therapy amongst the outdoors

I created the therapeutic techniques within Walking With My Bear so that I could help you rediscover pure happiness and understand what that looks like through your eyes, as you are guided amongst the amazing outdoors by qualified and insured mountain leaders who also specialise in mindset therapy.

To help you to deal with the situation in your life right now, that is holding you back and causing you to be scared.

And support you to regain control of your thoughts and feelings through the power of your mindset so you’ll be able to start an adventure of your own. Live a life that fills you with joy.

Your experience to achieve your desired goal will be different from anyone else, unique to you, yet each experience profound.

Walking With My Bear is proud to support clients amongst the great outdoors

It’s not about making your life bearable and not to give you another set of coping strategies that might work for a while or just mask the pain.

It’s about you taking back control of your thoughts, actions and feelings with practical techniques that have long-lasting results.

I didn’t want you to face your journey alone and unsupported because my 20 years of experience has taught me that together as a team we will get you to achieve your desired life faster and more determined.

You are in safe and professional hands.

My name is Jonathan Kattenberg, and I have been studying, researching and applying mindset techniques for 20 years whilst enjoying the outdoors. I’m a qualified Mountain Leader, Post Graduate in Clinical Hypnotherapy, qualified Reiki Practitioner, experienced in mindset techniques from various therapeutic approaches, Author of How To Build On Tectonic Plates, as well as being a contributory author within a recent publication - Non-Epileptic Seizures in Our Experience: Accounts of Healthcare Professionals by Steven C. Schachter MD, Markus Reuber MD.
