The venue for meetings is a private nature reserve on Red Hill, Cape Town. To start the conversation all meet-ups begin with walking in the reserve, along a simple, flat, sand track. The deliberate incorporation of the natural world into consulting is to acknowledge the many voices available to us if we care to listen - both in ourselves and in the natural world through metaphor. Mental effort can only get us so.

This year-long course is starting in January 2021 and is for those wanting to explore psychological, spiritual and practical aspects of working outdoors to facilitate personal and ecological wellbeing. It is designed to help you develop the confidence to start working therapeutically in a variety of outdoor locations. The learning process combines theoretical perspectives with practical skills, delivered through a combination of experiential activities, group work, talks and guided reading.
Who this course is for:
Aspirant wilderness guides, registered or aspirant councillors and therapists wanting to expand their practice to include the natural world, registered guides in any field wanting to learn "soft-skills" and nature connection practices.
