Outline Content:

Who said working with nature is all about coaching outdoors? In this latest offer from Barefoot Coaching learn how to work with the environment and nature inside and outside. 

Studies continue to confirm how a more intentional and well-informed relationship with nature enhances wellbeing, engages creativity, boosts vitality and stimulates positivity. There’s even studies that confirm that people who spend more time in nature are more generous and have been shown to demonstrate a sound sense of purpose.

A dynamic relationship with nature has also been shown to reduce depression, anxiety and attentional fatigue and vitamin is a green prescription for recovering from overwhelm burnout and exhaustion. 

In our Autumn CPD series discover how to creatively bring nature in 121 work and work with teams and groups using creative reflective writing. Learn how to work with nature as a core focus in dynamic and inclusive ways across a range of coaching, supervision and people development opportunities? 

Drawing on the evidence base of expressive writing and reflective journaling you’ll have the chance to learn new techniques, complete short nature-inspired exercises and longer exercises that focus on nature as a lens into holistic work with clients and groups.


By the end of the workshop, delegates will:


  • Be able to work with a range of nature-inspired questions that empower clients to reach for better answers.
  • Have practised a series of self-reflective exercises to try out before you share them with clients, groups, or teams.
  • Have learned about the evidence base that supports this work of nature writing and expressive writing.
  • Understand more about nature and environmental research that confirms why connecting with nature is beneficial for your client's wellbeing mentally, emotionally, physically and psychologically.
  • Be confident about working generatively with the many opportunities nature offers your practice as a coach or allied health professional. 
  • Be able to explore the theme of nature in your coaching relationship and see this as an easy and natural way to help clients more easily connect with emotions, the subconscious and to creatively and naturally explore learning edges through the abundant metaphors embedded in nature.

  • You will be given an opportunity to work with a select number of coaching questions from the Inner and Outer Nature card deck and the Writing with Fabulous Trees Writing Map.
