Wild Therapy @ ROEC


'Animal and nature assisted therapeutic encounters and interventions'


Many people will find themselves in a position where they need to seek out professional therapeutic help and support at some point in their life.

Here at ROEC we are thrilled to be able to offer 1:1 sessions for children and adults that take an integrative approach to therapeutic support, helping you to safely explore who you are and any difficulties you may currently be experiencing.

Sessions can help people of all ages work on issues such as:

  • Improving communication
  • Self – Accountability
  • Emotional awareness
  • Self-regulation
  • Trust in self and others
  • Impulse and reactivity control
  • Self – acceptance
  • Develop a sense of internal safety
  • Post-Traumatic growth
  • Self Confidence /esteem/worth
  • Increase capacity to cope with life’s challenges
  • Assertiveness
  • Anxious overthinking
  • Social skills /awareness/relationships
  • Developing and maintaining relationships
  • Resilience building

Working outdoors and with animals can be a wonderful and exciting way into a therapeutic process, as it invites you be in the moment, think on your feet, explore your edges and embrace the unknown!

Our therapist will work with you to identify any goals or changes you would like to make and weave together different modalities, approaches and interventions to help you achieve them. These can include:

  • Mindfulness approaches
  • Integrative therapy
  • Coaching
  • Embodiment and movement practices
  • Equine and animal assisted learning /therapy
  • Nature based practices

Through this process, you can gain a greater sense of clarity and develop new ways of being and coping to support you to put things into context and move forward with confidence.
