Outdoor Therapy & Counselling

Are you interested in developing or enhancing an existing outdoor therapy practice?

We are currently designing a formal qualification in Outdoor Therapy with the hope (COVID permitting) and running a pilot cohort in September 2021. The qualification is being structured as a mixed delivery course, with elements of online support and face to face teaching, and it will be set at level 6.

It is important to note that this will be a specialist course and does not replace core training (it is not a route to PSA registration). It therefore only suitable for qualified counselling and psychotherapy professionals with an existing registration.

The Tutors

The training will be delivered by Nick, Sarah & Stanley. All teaching staff delivering outdoor training are qualified teachers and experienced at designing and delivering counsellor training; all three have significant experience working outdoors in a therapeutic role and are excited to bring their experience to the table.

Nick Langley

…is a highly experienced counsellor with a particular interest in existential therapy and is currently researching an existentially informed outdoor therapy. He is a budding bush-crafter and member of the Institute for Outdoor Learning (IOL), with an interest in the link between simple-living, and emotional wellbeing.

Sarah London

…has years of experience in being and working outdoors; Sarah is also a trained animal-assisted therapist and highly experienced counsellor. As well as being a passionate outdoorsy person, Sarah is also a qualified teacher with many years of experience delivering training to the counselling community

Stanley London

…will bring his charm, enthusiasm, and outdoor spirit, all of which are second to none. He is a qualified, experienced ‘other than human’ therapist and will bring with him a dynamic that will enrich and contextualise the theory and learning.
