Information

Did you know that nature provides a plethora of wellbeing needs? Living in an urban world is practical and efficient but a separation has been created between nature and ourselves, leaving us without some of the benefits our bodies and minds really need.

A half-day surrounded by nature and filled with light therapeutic exercises to support self-development, mental health and to support each other

Connect, learn, develop, support

Extra information
What's included?
Included

In connection with a qualified outdoor leader and counsellor, spend your time developing self-awareness whilst leaning some skills to design your own outdoor support system

This is not a group therapy session, however, light therapeutic interventions will be included to develop self-awareness within a supportive group.

Confidentiality, mutual respect and support is covered within the briefing and will be upheld at all times.

 

Excluded

Snacks and water are not provided during the event so it is highly recommended that you bring your own to keep those energy levels up!

Due to attendees joining from a variety of locations, travel is not included in the event. However, if you are planning on attending via private transport and are unable to make it all the way to the start location please contact your event organiser as we may be able to help. This event aims to be as inclusive as possible.

Itinerary
Wilderness Wellness half day

Your meeting time and location will be provided before the date of the event.

Please aim to arrive in good time for the start time as the leader will be delivering a briefing and contract for confidentiality which all attendees must be present for and be in agreement with to participate in the exercises

We design circular routes so attendees can start and finish at the same location making travel easier

Can my dog come along?

We love dogs but during our therapy trips we ask that you only bring yourself so you can dedicate some much needed you time and focus

I cannot make the date of the trip, what are my options?
