An introduction to outdoor therapy
  • Varied

Back by popular demand, this training offers you a gentle introduction to some of the practical, ethical and process considerations therapists should know when they move their work outdoors.

We aim this training at qualified counsellors or those currently in their second year of Level 4 training. It will provide you with ‘the basics’ and prepare your to work ethically and safely outdoors with clients. We will also begin thinking about the theoretical differences between indoor and outdoor therapy.

Exploratory Outdoor therapy training
  • 10th Jun 2023
  • 10:00 – 16:00
  • Dover, Kent
  • £75/attendee

A one-day exploring the concept of ‘un-domesticating’ therapy, what it means and what it might offer.

We aim this at therapists and allied professionals who are curious about how they might adopt a wilder, less ‘domesticated’ approach in their work (or general life). This will be a thought-provoking workshop and it will encourage you to engage with ecotherapy at a deep ethical and philosophical level. We hope to create a fertile space for thinking up to, and beyond the confines of how we currently work.

Note: This training includes being outdoors and walking on uneven terrain. This workshop will proceed regardless of the weather (unless unsafe to do so). We provide refreshments (vegan), however, you will need to bring your own lunch.

Max group size: 6-12 (ratio of 6:1 attendees/trainers)
