How to Book

 

NOTE: Before booking it is very important that you get any physical symptoms diagnosed by a GP or medical practitioner.

For Private 1-2-1 sessions:

I'd first recommend that you contact me by phone or email, so that we can briefly discuss nature-based therapy and your requirements. I'd then usually recommend booking an Initial Consultation/Assessment Session. This gives us the chance to begin to explore your issues and your requirements in much more depth, take a detailed case history, describe nature-based therapy in more detail, give you honest answers to any questions you might have, give you a realistic estimate of how long you may need, and help you to begin the process of change.

Call me on 0161 881 4333 or to discuss your requirements and make an appointment.

To join an existing regular outdoor group session:

I recommend you contact me first to check availability and to discuss your requirements and suitability. I may recommend that you first attend a 1-2-1 Initial Consultation/Assessment session.

Call me on 0161 881 4333 or to discuss your requirements and make an appointment.

"Just five minutes of exercise in a "green space" such as a park can boost mental health, researchers claim. There is growing evidence that combining activities such as walking or cycling with nature boosts well-being. In the latest analysis, UK researchers looked at evidence from 1,250 people in 10 studies and found fast improvements in mood and self-esteem."

"'Forest therapy' taking root For stressed-out workers, this may someday be a doctor's prescription: Walk around in the woods.

Scientists in Japan have been learning a lot in recent years about the relaxing effects of forests and trees on mental and physical health. Based on their findings, some local governments are promoting "forest therapy."
Experience shows that the scents of trees, the sounds of brooks and the feel of sunshine through forest leaves can have a calming effect, and the conventional wisdom is right, said Yoshifumi Miyazaki, director of the Center for Environment Health and Field Sciences at Chiba University.
"Humans had lived in nature for 5 million years. We were made to fit a natural environment. So we feel stress in an urban area," Miyazaki said. "When we are exposed to nature, our bodies go back to how they should be."

Taking a walk in a forest, or "forest bathing" as it is sometimes called, can strengthen the immune system, according to Li Qing, a senior assistant professor of forest medicine at Nippon Medical School in Tokyo."
