About the Sessions

Life can be challenging at times which may result in the experience of uncomfortable feelings such as anxiety, low mood, frustration, isolation, and loneliness. These may have a negative impact on our motivation levels, reducing our self-confidence and self-esteem.

However, research tells us that connecting with nature and the outdoors can assist in maintaining and enhancing our mental health and emotional well-being. In helping to improve the levels of resilience required and through supporting us to explore and manage those difficult thoughts and feelings, an increased connection to nature can help us find a more positive way forward.

Scheduled throughout the year, these programmes, consisting of 5 x weekly sessions, provide the opportunity of meeting others in a similar situation where together you can experience the many benefits that nature-connection offers.

So, do feel free to join us, within a supportive and caring natural environment, where we warmly invite you to:

  • Indulge your senses and relax body and mind
  • Engage in fun and creative nature-based activities
  • Discover and explore new skills and interests
  • Socialise and meet new people
  • Enhance resilience levels to help embrace and manage change
  • Learn different techniques to Improve emotional well-being
  • Restore energy levels and boost your mood

These sessions are facilitated by Julie Drew, Mental Health Occupational Therapist (BSc; RCOT), and BACP registered person-centred Psychotherapist, specialising in nature-based therapy.
