Outdoor Therapy & Workshops

We work alongside the people of Kent who live with disadvantage and/or an absence of privilege, by offering nature-based therapy and personal development programmes. Our community services are fully or partially funded by our commercial activities and/or external funding, making them accessible to people who might benefit from them.

Our Workshops

Armchair Ecotherapy – Exploring Nature-based Therapy

Date: TBC  Venue: TBC

Hosted by Long Valley Therapy

Suitable for: Qualified and Trainee Counsellors/Therapists

A warm-up to the future ‘Applying eco-centric ideas in practice’, this workshop provides attendees with an understanding of the theory, principles, and diversity of nature-based therapies. It aims to define eco-therapy and in doing so, distinguish it from the more familiar human-based (anthropocentric) models of therapy.

There will be an opportunity to discuss the principles and core philosophies of outdoor therapy and, in addition to the above, it will celebrate the range and diversity of nature-based models from nature-inspired therapy, to wilderness immersion, to horticultural therapies (to name a few).

The workshop is particularly suited to qualified or trainee counsellors who are interested in working nature, or to those counsellors/therapists who have adopted ‘walk and talk’ and would like to take their outdoor practice to the next level.

The session will last for three hours and will be based in Chichester Hall in Sandgate, Kent.

Tea, coffee, and plant-based milk will be provided (you’re welcome to bring alternative milk if you prefer). Toilets are available onsite.

Three-hour CPD certificates will be issued to those who attend.
