Is the Earth calling to you? Has the wild in you stirred? Perhaps you are looking for someone to walk the journey of healing with you? Perhaps that someone is me.
My name is Beth, and I am an ecotherapist and the founder of Nature in Mind. With over twenty years of working in mental health and wellbeing in the charity and public sectors, and many years experience of working with people in nature, I am now in my final year of a Level 4 in Eco-psychology and nature based practice with Natural Academy (equivalent to a traditional counselling diploma).
My life is centred around my relationship with the earth. She is my muse, my solace, my inspiration and my mirror and I am so passionate about the healing power of the wilderness through the practice of ecotherapy. I'm very grateful to have studied with leaders in the field of ecopsychology and this, combined with my many years of professional experience, and a background in designing and delivering award-winning health and education programmes has brought me this beautiful life's work of offering a range of ecotherapy services and nature connection experiences using the Natural Self approach. I am also a member of the UK Nature and Health Practitioners Network, the UK's professional body for the field of ecopsychology, ecotherapy and nature based practitioners.
Working across a variety of natural spaces in Suffolk, my focus is to help individuals heal, reconnect with themselves, become aware of the inner resources they have to be well and live a deeply fulfilling life. By rediscovering our connection to the earth, and working with nature, as a part of nature, I guide people through a journey of discovery, growth and healing. Through this journey of nature connection we enter into a reciprocal relationship with the earth that supports her healing journey as well as our own.
I work with people on a 1-1 basis and with groups, offering one off ecotherapy experiences, regular sessions and 6 week courses focused around the three realms of eco-psychology - Nature, Health and Wellbeing, Healing and Wholing and Deeper Spiritual Ecology.
"I just wanted to say a great big thankyou for our beautiful session. I felt so incredibly reminded and reconnected when I left. I felt full of fresh, life giving air, rooted deeply in the earth and expanded into the wind.
I also couldn’t stop thinking about that land. How abundant it was in its winter. How majestic the birch wood was. How the Robins appeared, the deer and the buzzards. How supported we are when we take the time to look.
So thank you for welcoming me so warmly and guiding me through those few hours. I found the time really affirming...In my memory of the day you were much a part of the land - almost like an interim translator whilst I remembered how to converse with her myself. Thank you for the practices - they were really beautiful and so powerful."
