Therapy in Nature

Nature is the most powerful healer. Together we will meet and journey through gorgeous wilderness in the Northern Rivers region. This could be near waterfalls, creeks, mountains or the beach. Or, if preferred, you can potter in the garden with me, shell peas, feed the horses and chickens, do some weaving, or collect treasures for some nature art.

The wisdom of nature will help us on our journey, and along with my own coaching practices, together we can work through areas of your life that may need a new perspective, some guidance, or releasing. This could include shamanic journeying, cacao ceremony, non-psychoactive plant medicine, fire or water rituals, sound healing, talk therapy, art therapy,

or spiritual guidance from nature.

3 hours $280 / 2 x 3 hours $540

5 hours $420 / 2 x 5 hours $800

8 hours $680 / 2 x 8 hours $1200

Please bring your lunch, drinking water, swimmers, towel, small backpack, appropriate footwear and clothing, a notebook and pencil. No phones. Sessions include travel time between locations, and morning / afternoon tea.

What is ecotherapy?

There are many ways to approach ecotherapy. Ecotherapy is the resulting practice of eco-psychology......

Ecotherapy - to me - puts a legitimate sounding name onto a practice that to me is ancient, shamanic, and global - that is the healing of our relationship with Self as we heal and reconnect with the natural world.

There is empirical, scientific evidence that being in nature increases empathy, serotonin, .............

These are all incredible things important to our health and wellbeing, but I also find that doing things in nature - walking, working alongside one another, focusing on an external task or creation, helps to loosen the mind, heart and voice, and conversations about painful or uncomfortable topics comes easier.

In ecotherapy, nature becomes the co-therapist and co-spiritual guide or mentor. Connection with Nature connects us back to ourselves and our self sovereignty, which is critical in making daily choices that are aligned with our hearts and our bliss.

Then we get to the great unfolding.

I want to say a huge, heartfelt thank you to Mel for taking me on as one of her clients. I started my journey not really knowing what to expect. Just knowing I was in a place where I was struggling to get my voice heard in most aspects of my life, and desperate to share my medicine with the world.


Mel has helped me focus and sharpen the vision for myself and expand it in a way that really nourishes my soul, and I’ve developed a toolkit for moving forward and continuing with this, beyond our coaching sessions.

I've stepped out of my comfort zone may times during our sessions. Her support, guidance and advice had been invaluable for my metamorphosis.

acknowledge this land was never ceded. I acknowledge all lineage as custodians of this planet, for those who have forgotten and those who remember.
