Our July workshop was a huge success…..

The weather was good to us, the group bonded through the different activities and left feeling a true sense of calm while also taking away several techniques they would like to incorporate into their daily lives.  Here are a few snaps from the July 2022 workshop.



Mindfulness in Nature Workshop Sunday 24th July 2022

SUNDAY 24th JULY 2022


We had a fabulous relaxing and informative day. The weather was kind-not too hot-with a cool wind creating movement  through the trees.

A variety of mindfulness practices connected us to the healing power of nature, with great participation from the group.The Tai Chi section, and drumming amongst the trees proved very popular and terrific fun to do.








The day ended with the creation of a fabulous mandala, just using natural items nearby.






Come and join Claire and Dawn for our next wonderful day on Friday 9th September 2022 in a quiet and private setting, offering a unique and rustic feel among the woodland and fields.

I had a lovely chat this afternoon with Dom Cotter at BBC Gloucester Radio about Nature Therapy.

Whatever the weather, there is always an element we can connect to in some way with our senses. The snow drops are coming up, and hanging in there, tempting us to look forwards to new growth as spring arrives.

I am on just after 5pm, after a track from Madonna!

Eco Therapy

Eco Therapy

I offer eco therapy at my practice in Market Lavington. We will discuss on our initial therapeutic counselling session if this would be an option for you.

What is Eco Therapy?

The counselling room is a great place to be, but the therapeutic counselling process can be experienced outside. The natural world is a living environment, and adds another dimension to therapy. It provides a neutral space for us to work and to develop the therapeutic relationship. Observations about the surroundings, weather conditions can be valuable additions and enrichment of your own journey.

Eco Therapy challenges the senses, opening up endless possibilities for self-awareness, relaxation, and a sense of being part of the world.
