Energy Healing Level II

Forest bathing is also known by its Japanese name ‘shinrin yoku’. It is a practice of being mindful when experiencing nature, using all of your senses.  Whether individual or in a group, you will be invited both to walk, explore and to be still in a forest environment. This helps you to relax and feel a sense of belonging and well-being.

Individual sessions are offered on private land on weekdays near Clayhidon in the Blackdown Hills in Devon or near Nether Stowey in the Quantock Hills in Somerset.   

Regular sessions for group Forest Bathing are held on Mondays on private land, near Nether Stowey in the Quantock Hills, Somerset.    

Dr Karen can also run sessions in public woodlands by arrangement, up to 20miles from Wellington, Somerset.

Bird Therapy

Children and young adults with Special Educational Needs often experience high levels of stress struggling to fit into conventional learning environments.

Unpressured time in nature and with birds of prey is a chance to engage with surroundings in a relaxed and instinctive way. These sessions are 1 to 1 time for young people to feel safe, supported, listened to, and to find their own strategies to work with nature for their own mental health.

Every person has individual needs which Dr Karen will discuss with you, but from experience the sessions are helpful for young people with anxiety, sensory sensitivity and Autism-Spectrum Disorder. Some parents/carers have been able to use SEN budget provision for regular sessions.

Dr Karen’s sessions take place outdoors, but are not ‘forest school’. There is no curriculum for these sessions. It is, however, a learning experience. It is common for children and young people to come out of their withdrawn behaviour and become lively and curious, and they often leave with lots of new knowledge about the birds and the forest.
