Specialties

NATURE THERAPY

Counselling sessions is a calming way to engage the senses, relax the mind body anxieties and open ourselves to possibilities and conversation. Nature therapy sessions are perfect for those new to counselling and are conducted in Moana or Louise can travel to you as needed. 

 

TEEN & PARENT BUSH CAMPS & RETREATS & WORKSHOPS

We assist teens and parents to nurture their connection with themselves and each other. The time of agitation that parents may notice in their tweens and teens is a perfect time for them to learn more about their identity, their social and physical changes, and their relationship with their peers, mentors and parents. These programs utilise a Rites of Passage framework and nature based and mindfulness activities in a group setting, to assist them in they self identity and confidence.

Louise has grown these workshops and camps through a culmination of two decades experience facilitating nature based personal development programs throughout Australia & Internationally
