Stephanie is a Certified Nature Therapy Guide. She completed her training in June 2019 with the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy. She works with Nature to co-create a safe space to explore the natural world and experience what it means to be human. Within these guided immersive experiences lies the opportunity to develop a deeper connection to the natural world and all beings that it encompasses.
The aim of the simple and sensory activities offered on a “walk” is to create sustaining safe, meaningful, and relational contact between participants and Nature. Healing is not a sought-after goal but rather a common bi-product from the relationship established from these consistent and intentional interactions with Nature.
Nature is the therapist, the Guide simply opens the doorway for others to build and maintain a therapeutic relationship with her.
A Nature Therapy walk is a slow mindful wander, designed to help you drop into your body and the present moment with opportunities to connect with nature in a way that promotes health and wellbeing for both you and the world around you.
There are no prerequisites, necessary fitness levels, or exclusions of any kind.
