Mindful, Somatic Ecotherapy - Immersion Training for Therapists & Support Workers

Ecotherapy takes the ancient wisdom and knowing of our inherent need for nature connection, and combines it with our more recent therapeutic understanding of the impact of trauma on our psyche - mind, body & spirit. It is the unity of these wisdoms that creates the
