About Sonya

 

Hello, I'm Sonya and welcome to Adore Your Outdoors.  

I LOVE trees & moss, and I'm proud of it :)  I've even got over my childhood fear of spiders! 

I started Adore Your Outdoors in 2019 when I decided to follow my dream. 

Why? I felt driven to: 

  • spend more time outside in nature
  • connect with my creative side and
  • help others live a happy and healthy life. 

I passionately believe in the benefits of talking therapy, but that a connection to nature plays a vital role in healing and maintaining ongoing good mental health

Family & interests:

I live in Hampshire with my 4 year old son Leo, who loves nature just as much as I do (my greatest achievement yet). 

In my spare time I love helping run Wildlife Tots with the Hampshire Wildlife Trust, and enjoy yoga, meditation, gardening and walking.
