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 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.
…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.
…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
…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.
