  • This is a 20 hour Continued Professional Development Ecotherapy programme suitable for Psychotherapists, Counsellors, Psychologists, Medical and allied Medical professionals along with Social Work and Care professionals and those in the field of Education

  • We will explore your own relationship with the natural world, theory, research and the clinical basis and practicalities around either bringing your clients outdoors or bringing a more ecological lens to your indoor work.

  • Through this hybrid model you will get to experience a deeper connection with nature both in your own garden during the online sessions, and also explore your process with others in the nature rich Glen in Ennistymon.

Join me and other like minded professionals as we explore how you can bring nature more into your practice through the development of your unique professional and personal experiences.

Course Structure:

  • This unique course is developed to allow participants to engage in a very interesting blended learning experience. 

  • It is designed as a highly interactive small group training which will include periods of outdoor time. 

  • Participants will engage with natural environments local to them during the online session – this may be a garden, local park, country road etc.
