A summary
Join me for a mindful walk through Timble Woods near Otley where you will explore Forest bathing techniques, mindful photography and guided meditations including sit spot. ‘Forest Bathing’ benefits both our physical and mental health and wellbeing. Time spent amongst trees, connecting with nature has been proven to lower our heart rate, help us to maintain healthy blood pressure and prevent illness and disease by promoting relaxation, reducing stress and anxiety and lifting our mood. In short, trees promote happiness! Come and spend a morning in beautiful Timble Woods and leave recharged, refreshed and with a greater sense of wellbeing.
About your mentor
Green Space Forest School
Adult wellbeing and nature connection
I have 20 years experience working in local secondary schools- and for over 16 of those I was a teacher of art and design. Over the last 4 years I’ve worked in Forest Schools, firstly on a freelance basis in holiday clubs for children aged 5-11 and in 2021 I developed a Forest School intervention programme for secondary school students with SEND, including those with Autism, ADHD and SEMH, together with a wellbeing programme for students who would benefit from learning outside in a woodland environment. I started Green Space Forest School at the end of 2022, providing a forest school experience for adults, with an emphasis on wellbeing and nature connection- and through this I’ve been running monthly woodland wellbeing sessions at the Prince of Wales Park in Bingley. In September 2023 I became a licenced Woodcraft for Wellbeing Practitioner, having completed the Certificate in Adult Mental Health and Wellbeing for Outdoor Leaders, with The Therapeutic Forest CIC. I have also completed training for the Hill and Moorland Leader award to allow me to lead guided wellbeing walks at various locations in Yorkshire.
