What this course is not

Woo Woo – many people have become cynical or is it fearful when the word green is mentioned as if it’s very mention implies that the subject is somehow powered by unicorns. This is not the case. This course is not just about your continued learnings or professional development but also for your business investment. The outcome is a mutual benefit to you, your client and as a bonus utilising our amazing natural space.

Why going outside is good for both your business and your clients.

According to Dr Richardson head of psychology at the University of Derby. “There is already research evidence that exposure to nature can reduce high blood pressure and cardiovascular illnesses; improve vitality and mood; benefit issues of mental wellbeing such as anxiety; and restore attention capacity and mental fatigue. But more than that, feeling a part of nature has been shown to significantly correlate with life satisfaction, vitality, meaningfulness, happiness, mindfulness, and lower cognitive anxiety. 
It doesn’t matter what your core therapy is, it can be taken outside”.
