This Course was last run in November 2020. It booked out quickly and had great feedback.
Sample Participant Feedback
"I feel I've gained the confidence on how to bring my psychotherapy practice outdoors and how to bring nature indoors too"
"I have really started to look at my own interaction and connection with nature. I am focused now on bringing the inside out and the outside in, but for me first, and then moving onto client work."
"Although I know that nature is good for my own process, I've become aware how to use it at a deeper level."
"The outdoor activities were very enjoyable and stirred up more emotions than I thought they would or that I was prepared for."
"I have a much better idea now about the type of work I would like to do with clients and the way I would like to work with them especially incorporating nature into the work."

Are you a Qualified or Trainee Psychotherapist, Counsellor, Art Therapist or Psychologist interested in integrating nature into your therapy practice or taking therapy sessions outside? If so this highly interactive and practical online course will give you a solid foundation on how to begin or develop your outdoor psychotherapy practice.
There is much to be reflected on when embarking on therapy outside of the traditional frame of the room. Consideration must be given to a number of practical issues, client and process suitability as well as important theoretical underpinnings. Fundamental to Psychotherapy and Counselling is the therapists’ own growth and awareness through personal therapy. Similarly, in working outdoors with clients, the therapists’ own relationship with nature, their comfort and sense of regulation in natural environments is of paramount importance.
Join me in exploring how you can bring nature more into your practice through the development of your unique professional and personal experiences.
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 course – this may be a garden, local park, country road etc.
Further outdoor experiences will be encouraged between workshops.
Learning outcomes include:
An increased awareness of your own process related to Nature.
A clear sense of how and why you may develop your Outdoor/Nature practice.
An understanding of the practical implications of taking your clients outdoors.
An understanding of the background, research and literature relevant to integrating Nature to your practice.
An increased awareness of the wider ‘Green Care’ and ‘Ecotherapy’ context.
Knowledge of outdoor clinical practice vignettes.
Integration of this approach with your own model and theoretical lens.
Developing your professional network and matrix of support.
