Training / CPD

“Developing Your Outdoor Practice” is a one day CPD aimed at counsellors and psychotherapists who are new to working outdoors and those who are looking to move outside the therapy room. “Walk and Talk” therapy or ecotherapy raises a whole heap of questions, and I want to help answer them.

Training is a full day from 9am until 4:30pm, next outdoor therapy workshop dates are:

Saturday 11th June 2022 (SOLD OUT)

Saturday 8th October 2022

This face to face training mixes group discussion, looking at research and ecotherapy theories as well as lots of experiential learning. We will cover:

  • How you experience nature and the implications for your practice
  • How working outdoors can enhance your therapeutic practice – and when it might not be suitable
  • Choosing your outdoor space
  • The practicalities (such as confidentiality, risk assessments and weather)

Feedback from a previous session: “This course exceeded my expectations. The venue choice was brilliant, the tutor was really engaging and inclusive. It was really good value for money and the handouts and supporting material were really professional. The tutor made sure that the day was really comfortable and even provided homemade brownies which was a nice touch! I would thoroughly recommend this training to anyone looking to take therapy outside.”

The venue is an outdoor learning facility just outside Wolverhampton, near Codsall and we have nine acres to explore, as well as a comfortable meeting space and private indoor toilets. The site is fully accessible but do let me know if you’ve any specific access concerns so I can make sure that the day suits your needs as best I can.

All meals are included (breakfast, lunch, snacks at breaks as well as hot drinks) and any dietary requirements can be catered for, just let me know upon booking. The gluten free and vegan brownies have been a big hit on past trainings! Of course you’ll get a CPD certficate to take home, and the cost of the full day including food/drinks is £120.
