Facilitated Staff Days

“Having the opportunity to come together, in a completely informal setting to share experiences, in such a natural environment was a really valuable experience.”

Heart Wood’s bespoke facilitated staff days offer your team a break away from the stresses and confines of work to spend time in beautiful Northumberland woodland.

Facilitated by person-centred counsellors with a wealth of experience working therapeutically outdoors, we offer a safe space to talk.

This is an opportunity to come together in a different way, outside of the work environment.

Each day will be tailored according to what you would like to focus on as a group. Maybe there are common themes amongst the group – such as wellbeing, burnout, team dynamics, or isolation resulting from new ways of working post COVID.

As well as time to talk, participants can learn woodland conservation activities, fire-lighting, take part in reflective exercises in nature and have some fun.
