Wellbeing at Work

Looking for something a bit different this year for (the dreaded!) annual team building activity? Or perhaps you are looking for ways to support the emotional health of your staff. 

How about an evidence-based therapeutic practice that:

  • can strengthen and deepen relationships
  • fosters gratitude and resilience 
  • is scientifically proven to improve mental and physical health
  • enhances creativity and concentration
  • is ‘green’ and gets people outside
  • and is also a lot of FUN!  

Forest Therapy delivers all of this by connecting people to natural environments through gentle sensory-based meditations and mindfulness exercises. 

The practice is sometimes known as Forest Bathing, but I promise no swimming is required :) It’s new in the UK but based on the popular health and wellbeing activity known as Shinrin-Yoku, which was first prescribed by the Japanese NHS over 40 years ago to combat stress in the workplace.

I describe it as mindfulness boosted by nature connection.

Sessions are 2-3 hours in duration, go ahead in most weather and work best with around 10 participants. I can run a single experience as a standalone team building event, but results are better if incorporated into a longer term strategy. 

The benefits are proven to last 2-4 weeks and with a 3 hour monthly forest therapy session, expected results include:

  • Increased productivity
  • Fewer sick days
  • Increased ability to feel trust, empathy and kindness towards others 
  • Better communication
  • Reduced staff turnover
  • Improved staff morale 

I am insured, first aid qualified, fully enhanced DBS checked and have permission to work in various locations in Winchester, Micheldever, Basingstoke, Newbury, Eastleigh, Southampton and Waterlooville.
