Which is the best ecotherapy option for you?

 

As a client at Walk Inniú, you will always have choice. Why? Because deep down, you know what’s right for you.

 

All of our ecotherapy approaches at Walk Inniú are facilitated in a warm and welcoming manner; they are inclusive, practical and based on best professional practice. Our approaches are created to help you, wherever you are in your life and we keep your needs firmly in mind.

 

At different times in your life, you may need to take a particular approach towards improving your wellbeing. And who best to know your ‘likes and dislikes’ but you! For some people, the feeling of belonging that they enjoy when participating in a walk and talk group is just what they need. Others may prefer the more confidential ‘one to one’ approach, particularly if they have something they wish to share in a smaller, safer space.

 

Nature has an immense capacity to help us learn, heal and grow. It is only through understanding our relationship with nature can we authentically and reciprocally experience a more compassionate connection with ourselves, our loved ones, our communities and our planet. Taking the time to create your personalised ‘green prescription’ will help you grow in awareness of your many and varied relationships, leaving you feeling more certain of yourself and more resourced on your personal path of life.

 

So give yourself some time to reflect on the 3 various ecotherapy options below and trust yourself to make a good choice – you will instinctively know which approach suits you best.

Fields

 

Ravaged, cut, split, torn,
Growing heather, rushes, bushes, thorn.
Supersaturated, drowning,
Lakes and rivers without boundary,
Spilling into a vessel which can hold no more.

 

Patches and tufts of green misplaced,
Hold miserable animals wishing themselves elsewhere.
Driving, wetting, cruel mists and sheet rain,
Assuring a long hard winter before the next fine day.
Promising lower land will sleep dead underwater.

 

The men who pull and drag,
Life, rocks, clay and whins bush,
Suffer an eternity of forcing and cursing.
Trying to make land…
Instead of making time.

David Staunton

 

I wrote this poem not because I felt I could write poetry of any great merit – but because I had to.  It was written at a time when I was attempting to make sense of my world as I experienced it, to reconcile with dark memories from the past and acknowledge my fears and anger at the time of writing.  As I look back and reflect on the poem, I see my harsh projections of anxiety, negativity and anger at that time. Thankfully when it comes to exploration of a mindful manner, nature has an infinite holding capacity.  From a train window travelling through the west of Ireland in 2010, I became deeply aware of field after wet waterlogged field, passing in my gaze.  The fields seemed to invite me to explore my own busy, troubled and frightened self at a deep level – ‘to find Jung’s gold in the shadows’ as it were.  And for too long I had mined a lot of ‘fool’s gold’ – but I now felt more ready to look for the real thing.

Self analysis, self care and ongoing reflection is paramount for all counselling psychotherapists in order to provide a kind and therapeutically effective space for their clients.  Those wet fields and bogs of Connaught supported and held me as I wrote, inspiring and encouraging me to accept that the meaningful courage and strength I sought was accessible within my very being.  Ecopsychology and Ecotherapy at work.
