Heart Wood is a registered charity based in Northumberland that works to improve people's mental health, (with a focus on men), through a range of primarily woodland based person-centered counselling (as developed by Carl Rogers and others) and psychotherapy projects.
Heart Wood is running two ecotherapy groups this spring. If you think you might benefit from joining one of the groups (one for men aged 18-25 and one for men over 25) take a look at the information on the site.
Heart Wood is also developing a model of person-centered ecotherapy and will be offering professional development and training for mental health professionals.
The charity is building on the success of the pilot project 'Ecotherapy Group for Men who identified with suffering with depression' from February - August 2018. There is qualitative evidence of positive outcomes for a majority of the participants, who were psychologically and socially isolated.
