How we can help

Connecting with nature through our courses can have lots of positive health benefits. It can help you manage existing mental health problems, and could help prevent future periods of ill health, such as an episode of depression. You can use ecotherapy on its own, or alongside other treatments such as talking treatments or medication.

Could nature be part of the solution?

One in four of us will experience mental health problems at some point in our life.


Our slow-paced, peaceful and informal courses can help if you are:

  • Feeling low or depressed

  • Feeling stressed and/or anxious

  • Finding it hard to control worrying

  • Suffering from a long term physical health condition

  • Experiencing panic attacks

  • Suffering from phobias or OCD

  • Suffering from an eating disorder

  • Dealing with a bereavement

  • Feeling depressed and anxious during pregnancy and post-natally

  • Experiencing emotional difficulties relating to parenthood

  • Mood changes due to the seasons (Seasonal Affective Disorder)


If your problems are not listed, we can discuss your requirements within our service to further advise what and who might be best able to help.
