Forest Bathing (1.5 - 2 hour sessions)
Forest Bathing stems from the idea that we humans have a longing to be surrounded by trees and nature, which is why we immediately feel an overwhelming sense of calm when in a forest or woodland. Forest bathing invites us to slow down and reconnect with nature which we are part of. The practice has been part of the public health program in Japan since 1982, when the government began to promote it as therapy. There is a lot of emerging research that is demonstrating forest bathing is helpful for people struggling with depression and anxiety.
There are no set rules how we go about forest-bathing, but it typically involves an hour or two in a forest, slowly walking or sitting or both. The pace should be slow and the aim is to be present in the here and now.

Outdoor Life Coaching (1.5 - 2 hour sessions)
A life coach helps people to shape their own lives based on their deepest desires and talents. The primary goal of Life Coaching is deepening life’s happiness and success.
The essence of outdoor coaching is in the environment. Everything in the environment can be used as metaphors that symbolically illustrate, broaden and deepen the topics of the coaching process. For example, you can use a tree as a metaphor for someone’s personality or paths can be seen as metaphors for someone’s life journey. Outdoor life coaching can be done in any climate and under all weather conditions as these can also be used to symbolise our mental and emotional processes. The environment provides inspiration and clarity.
The motion of walking gets the body moving which causes the thoughts, feelings and energy to move. By walking and talking at the same time, the head and body are connected with one another. A process of bilateral stimulation takes place which means that both the left and right hemispheres of the body are stimulated. This connection of the two hemispheres creates new insights and helps to balance the emotional life. A nice side effect of walking is the release of dopamine and endorphins that make you feel relaxed and comfortable.
‘Turn on your intuition as far as possible and be inspired by what you notice. Take a good look around, everything you perceive can be a symbolic message for you. You give things your own meaning and you interpret it in your own unique way, just like you do the metaphors and symbols of dreams’
