This experiential workshop aims to provide counsellors with some powerful techniques which can be used both inside and outside the therapy room. The natural world can act both as a catalyst and vessel from which clients can process inner conflicts. This workshop will be beneficial to therapists who want to learn more about the effects of our natural world on our client’s wellbeing.
