Play Therapy, Nature Based Therapy
Play therapy uses the client's internal self-healing mechanisms to access unconscious and conscious experiences. The therapist forms a relationship with the client and encourages him or her to explore life events that affect his or her current life experience.
During play therapy, the therapist works at the client's pace. Talking is secondary to play in this form of therapy, and as such the client is encouraged to play while the therapist observes.
Play Therapy is suitable for adults too, as it helps them to relearn self-exploration, which enhances physical and cognitive behaviours. Play therapy gives children and adults freedom, increased creativity and life experience.

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.
