Did you know that 61% of people referred for psychological therapy in 2018/2019 received little (just one session) or no therapy sessions at all - that's over 900,000 that asked for help but didn't get any. I can teach you how to bond with nature in a completely new way so that you are in charge of your own mental and physiological health. Right now, and even during lockdowns!
Permission granted to leave your responsibilities behind, for 3 whole hours. Sounds good, doesn't it? Do you remember during lockdown your daily walk in nature became the highlight of the day? And how peaceful you felt afterwards? Well, I help you get that feeling back, and teach you how to develop and deepen it so that it lasts.
Recently Lindsey was so moved after her session she blogged about it. She said, "It really is a special, unique and transformative experience that I would encourage everyone to experience for themselves!".
If you're struggling and want to talk, I am available for a confidential one-to-one chat where I hold a safe space for you to share your worries or concerns. I won't offer you solutions but I will give you the time and space to speak and be heard. Time amongst trees and connecting to nature are both proven to lower stress and anxiety, and heighten your sense of calm; aren't these the perfect conditions for talking about 'the difficult stuff'?
Stepping away from the stresses of life and quietening the chatter of the mind brings untold benefits. 1-hour or 2-hour sessions where you leave all your responsibilities behind while I help you clear your mind, release negative emotions and connect to nature and your true self.
Join me in local woodland via zoom. I guide you through 3-4 mindfulness experiences to open your senses and help you connect with nature for health-boosting purposes.
You can join from your back garden, inside your home or from a local park or woodland, and as I guide the invitations, you go with whatever your heart or body feels is right for you in that moment. This allows for a more private experience than the in-person session.
You'll need a fully charged phone, headphones and clothing suitable for spending 90 minutes outdoors. You won't walk far or fast.
I wonder if you will notice Mother Nature’s colours, textures, sounds and shapes in your own environment, perhaps more deeply than before? Once you've started noticing nature's beauty, the more you see it.
