Facilitating the journey of coming home
What inspires me
Nature is a wonderful healer - when you know how to access it fully - and the benefits of spending time outdoors are well documented. As many outdoor facilitators know, nature connectedness is in fact a basic psychological need. If you’re feeling disconnected from society, from friends and from yourself - as so many are after the last two years - Eco-therapy gives you the tools to forge a deep emotional and more meaningful connection to nature. Importantly, it can give you a more profound sense of belonging on this earth. Connect more deeply with nature and come away feeling revitalised & supported. Remember, you are not just 'part of' nature: you ARE nature.

I will be using nature-based mindful practices and environmental art therapy modalities. Being playful and creative outdoors allows us to rediscover our childhood wonder, reconnect with our natural, whole self, and feel more a part of the world we inhabit. Having a deep, embodied connection with nature increases wellbeing, boosts the immune system, reduces stress and improves mood and sleep. Rewilding is a journey of discovery that can help us expand our awareness into the feeling of being alive in this body, on this planet; a journey of coming home to ourselves. When we learn how to reconnect deeply with our environment, with this living planet, we find reverence and respect for Earth, and...
