I can see that we hold a shared passion for providing the best quality mental health care and psychoeducative input that enables people of all walks of life to be better informed and fundamentally more in touch with their mental health needs.
Ecotherapy is a lifeline for the human race that is recognised far too little in the UK and often is dismissed as something that can not be therapeutic – yet the results I have seen in clients I have worked with are nothing more than incredible. To find another service that value nature as I do, is wonderful.
