Forest Therapy sessions are a preventative public health practice, inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku (translates as 'immersion in the forest atmosphere') and now available world-wide.

Research supports what many of us already know - time is nature is so good for our minds and bodies.

Sessions are 2 to 3 hours in duration, slowly wandering between 1-2 kilometres in small groups.

Kathleen is a certified Forest Therapy guide. During the session, she offers gentle, immersive practices to engage all of your senses, ignite your curiosity and help you to turn off from the outside world. Everything is invitational, you choose what you wish to do. Sessions are conducted mostly in quietness within beautiful green spaces, with opportunities to share in circle (if you wish; silence is always welcome). We finish with light refreshments, inspired by the flavours of Australia.

Our small group Forest Therapy sessions follow a standardised sequence as based on the International Core Curriculum for Forest Therapy (ICCFT). After sessions, people feel calmer, happier and more relaxed.
