Eco-therapy is a therapeutic process largely based in an outdoor environment. The 'wild' mind of nature plays an essential part of the therapy. Drawing from mindful somatic psychotherapy (Hakomi) 'Goethean' observations, nature based vision quests, Joanna Macy's 'the work that re-connects', University of the trees & 'soul craft' work of Bill Plotkin. The eco-therapy process is often found to be deeply connecting, nourishing, and enlivening. For individuals 2 hour sessions are recommended. For groups half day upwards
Counselling & Psychotherapy
Hakomi psychotherapy is about supporting self-study through mindfulness and somatic (body) awareness. It is client-centred and differs from traditional forms of counselling and psychology in that it is experiential and works with emergent present moment 'felt-sense'. Hakomi supports accessing deeply held beliefs and habits while supporting 'missing' experiences. While my central way of working is Hakomi based, creative arts therapy, IFS (internal family systems) and Buddhist based psychotherapy also inform my practice.
