When we step outdoors into the natural world our internal nature can be influenced immensely.  Nature is naturally therapeutic and supportive (and sometimes challenging); a plethora of research supports what we instinctively know about fresh air, movement, sensory delights, belonging, connection and communication.  There is an abundance of symbolism and metaphor to be experienced in nature, which can be utilised in therapy with powerful and meaningful outcomes.  Natural settings can provide a very rich, reflective environment for therapeutic work.  The majority of my outdoor meetings take place in a wonderful setting in South Manchester where there is a variety of  interesting wildlife, beautiful trees and small lakes.  
Examples of my work in nature span over thirty five years and include: working and living in an outdoor pursuits centre in the Peak District supporting others personal development through outdoor pursuits; working in a healthcare team in remote woodland in North America whilst living outdoors there for six weeks; providing therapy for adults and supervision for practitioners in nature settings in the UK.  I continue to explore how the many therapeutic aspects of connecting with our natural world can be integrated into therapy with clients and into supervision with practitioners.     
Outdoor meetings can be arranged throughout all seasons; I welcome any enquiries on 0161 860 7378 and at therapyupnorth@gmail.com
