Nature Based Therapy
Nature Based Therapy, Emotionally Focused Family Therapy
At the root of Ecotherapy/Nature based therapy is the understanding that humans and nature are intrinsically linked. This human–planet connection is vital both for our psychological wellbeing and for protecting and sustaining the natural world, including landscapes, living things, and cultures. This approach frequently occurs outdoors, where issues the client is facing are supported by the counsellor and the mirroring and holding of the green spaces.

Similar in some ways and based on the Emotion-Focused Therapy model from Greenberg and colleagues, EFFT is an evidence-based family therapy approach in which the therapist offers support to caregivers/parents. This equips caregivers/parents with skills, tasks, and emotion basics in order to better support their loved ones who may be struggling with mental health.
