Wild Wellbeing

Rewilding Your Wellbeing in Nature

Nature Based Therapy & Nature Connection Sessions

Most of us feel better when we have spent time in the great outdoors. The restorative effects of a long hike with the dog, relaxing on a beach or simply spending time in the garden or local park leaves us feeling calmer, more content and refreshed.

At Wild Wellbeing we take this a step further by supporting our clients to engage in the natural world in holistic, meaningful and healing ways using a proven and carefully crafted model of practice called the NatureWell Approach developed by Natural Academy.

NatureWell is an integrative nature and health approach, helping people and communities connect to nature for their health and wellbeing. It can help local groups connect to natural spaces in order to develop healthy communities and care for those natural spaces. It also helps those who are living with challenges to their health and wellbeing such as physical illness, work related stress and mental health related issues.

Walking & Talking Therapy

Walking and talking therapy brings all the benefits of a normal therapy session with the added advantage of being out in nature. We carefully select local natural spaces which offer peace and quiet as well as the beauty of the natural world.

Ecotherapy

Like with walking talking therapy, ecotherapy clients will gain many benefits from being in nature, however the focus will be to support them to connect with the natural environment in a deeper and more meaningful way. Exactly how the session will unfold will depend on the individual but it may include; meditation exercises which help to ground and connect; focusing on a particular tree or animal; making something creative using natural found materials. Clients may also be encouraged to explore their environment to find meaning and mirroring from Nature. This supports greater insights into personal experiences, feelings or issues related to relationships or certain situations.

Nature Connection Sessions

In these sessions we use the NatureWell Approach to help individuals connect to nature for their health and wellbeing. This gentle approach is suitable for most people wanting a more meaningful and intimate relationship with the natural world and provides participants with activities and skills they can use in their everyday lives to support wellness. This approach is proven to help support and maintain wellbeing for those that partake and in turn this supports people to care more for the natural world they feel held and healed by.

Group Workshops

Our Nature Connection workshops provide groups with a fulfilling and healing experience which benefits individuals, communities and the natural world. Each workshop uses the NatureWell Approach which supports the group to engage with nature through the Five Pathways of Connection, Beauty, Emotion, Compassion & Meaning.

Weekend workshops are available for community groups, work place groups or groups referred by health care providers. Please get in touch for more information about how our workshops can be tailored to groups needs.

Workshops for the general public will be held periodically throughout the year.
