Anything else you'd like the other members to know?
Would be keen to discuss the road to gaining appropriate therapeutic qualification. I'm interested in any opportunities to work therapeutically outdoors. If there are therapists/outdoor leaders/others who would like to work outdoors especially in wilder areas or through a range of human powered journeys. I would be very keen to offer technical, safety skills, as well as, facilitate a range of eco-activities to support the exploration of separation/re-connection (ecopsychology) mentioned above. I have worked on a variety of therapeutic courses based outdoors, from working with Peace & Reconciliation for community leaders either side of the religious and political divide in Northern Ireland to working with young offenders looking at their life choices.
