What is Nature Therapy?
Also known as Ecotherapy or Green Therapy, Nature Therapy involves spending time in nature to improve mental and physical health.
Did you know that reconnecting with nature is one of the easiest to do … and it could be just the thing you need. Nature therapy is an amazing way to improve your physical and mental health, and it’s all about getting closer to the great outdoors.
Studies show that spending time in nature can do wonders for your mind, body and soul, from reducing stress to boosting your mood and creativity.
It can help reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression and it’s been found to complement traditional therapy methods, especially for those dealing with trauma.
Not only will you feel better, but spending time in nature can help you feel connected to something bigger than yourself, expanding your consciousness and helping you put things in perspective.
If you’re living in the city or glued to a screen at home or in the office all day, nature therapy can be especially effective at lowering levels of stress and improving your general wellbeing.
Fancy the ‘Bertha Experience’?
Bertha is my amazing camper van and I am so excited to be sharing her with my clients for therapy sessions. She has a cool interior and enough mod-cons to make you feel cosy and comfortable, she offers sanctuary from the bustle and stresses of everyday life and allows you to fully disconnect from your everyday life and reconnect to your own true nature, through nature.
Bertha is mostly based in a peaceful Nature Reserve near Wickham in Hampshire which allows me to utilise the healing power the great outdoors and enhance the range of therapies I offer, but I am soon to be adding new locations so watch this space!
Working in this unusual way provides a unique and beneficial experience for both me and my clients and those who have already ‘met’ Bertha have really enjoyed their encounter. Not only does she enable a closer connection to the natural surroundings, but she also offers a mini-adventure into the magic of #vanlife.
Benefits of the BERTHA EXPERIENCE include:
Access to nature: Being in nature has been shown to have a positive impact on mental health, and conducting therapy sessions in a camper van allows for easy access to the natural world.
More welcoming: Traditional bricks and mortar therapy offices, whilst offering a private space can feel impersonal and clinical to some people. However, Bertha doesn’t have any formal reception area or stuffy air conditioning and is far less intimidating than an office block.
Increased flexibility: Bertha being a camper van allows for therapy sessions to take place in a variety of locations, and I can adjust my sessions based on my clients’ needs and the environment.
Get creative: The unique setting of Bertha parked up in nature really ignites my creativity as a therapist and can inspire new ways of thinking for my clients.
Adventure awaits: offering my therapy sessions in a camper van is pretty unique. It enables my clients to experience a mini #vanlife adventure which creates a deeper therapist/client bond and helps to increase interaction and trust – both vital elements for transformational therapy.
