Friday July 26th Shining Cliff Woods Derbyshire


Saturday 28th September Hawkwood College Stroud

Are you a supervisor? Do you have supervisees who work outdoors? Would you like to know more about how to support their practice? Join myself and Ruth Overington for an immersive day in Shining Cliff Woods to deepen your knowledge and understanding of some of the principles of outdoor supervision work, find out about ethical and safe practice and reflect on how you might incorporate this into your supervision.

General information about supervision

I supervise practitioners nationally who have had outdoor or nature based training and/or have experience of working therapeutically outdoors or with nature.

I have worked in nature-based activities with individuals and groups since 2006. I have witnessed at first hand the huge benefits from working with and in nature. I also understand the importance of working safely and respectfully within a natural environment.

Supervision sessions enable you to develop your nature-based practice, reflect on your own relationship with the natural world and what this means for working outdoors with your clients — whether you are new to this way of working, or more experienced.

My outdoor therapy training has been with Hayley Marshall PTSTA(P) and the late Martin Jordan at the Centre for Natural Reflections. I have regular supervision with Hayley and maintain seasonal links with this space.

Supervision sessions can be online, face to face, or outdoors individually or as part of a group

Topics we may cover are: taking clients outside for the first time, confidentiality, ethical considerations, how to assess client suitability, contracting and risk assessment, embodied working, contact with nature. And any other nature-based working related issues you might want to bring.

Individual supervision – online, face to face or outdoors   

Fee  £60 per hr   £90 per 1.5 hrs (outdoor sessions are all 1.5hrs)

Spirituality and Supervision

I supervise those who work with spirituality as a focus in their work – or would like to. I have considerable experience of developing my own spirituality and understand the links between spirituality, a sense of well-being and for me personally a link to nature. I hold a Diploma in Practical Spirituality and Wellness with the Spiritual Companions Trust and am a tutor on the diploma. Please contact me if you would like to chat about supervision and spirituality, I’m happy to talk through my approach and how it might meet yours.
