Whether you are looking for a group of people to walk with or require something more personal and wish to try my one to one 'Nature As Therapy'-please contact me. We'll walk under BIG skies, sit with old trees, walk through ancient woodland and be ourselves, as part of nature. Connecting reguarly to nature while being supported, is hugely benefical for our health and can positively change our lives.
Is your child stuck & unhappy at school or in life?
I am very experienced in working with children. I run my own forest school, have trained in educational psychology, Steiner Early Years, art therapy for children and registered with OFSTED. I have worked with many different mental & physical abilities & needs incl; autism, downs syndrome, ADHD, cerebral palsy, selective mutism and PTSD.We walk and form a trusting relationship and with time, play & listening put in place what is needed.
Are you feeling depressed/anxious/stuck/isolated?
I have been working with adults for 5 years. I work in a supportive, safe, confidential way, outside. This helps to create a trusting relationship that can open up possibilities for change. Being in nature naturally reduces stress bringing calm and centredness. Being in nature means reconnecting with ourselves, as we are nature, bringing nurture & support. I can help you to be in the moment, to get to know yourself and increase your self-worth.
I am able to guide a group you have put together and walk from my base or travel to you and your countryside in BANES, West Wiltshire and North Somerset. Max. 5 people.
Supportive groups are important and around a fire is even better. I run different groups for different ages & life stages, for local women. Let's have a pow-wow... there are so many things happening for each of us and the universe, let's bring our experience, energy, love, kindness & support together round a fire and see what happens! You will be heard, supported and respected within a circle of safe confidentiality. £5 donation towards tea, wood & organising time. ASHE!
Samhain, the old Celtic New Year, a time to look at intentions going forward and what no longer serves you. Meet me at an arranged point in Winsley, so that I can lead you into private woodland to sit round a lovely, warm fire. Wear warm clothes and something to sit on. £5 donation towards tea, wood & organising time. ASHE!
I have found through my forest school work, and walking every day, that being immersed in nature helps to quieten the mind, relax and process internal blocks. It helps us humans feel revived and I feel it is a really important part of healing and being with ourselves.
There is a lot of evidence now to show cortisol levels decrease, easing stress...and endorphins are released, helping us feel more positive. (See articles and studies here.)
Being part of a group and feeling like you belong really helps us to feel less isolated too.
