Ecopsychology is the fusion between Ecology and Psychology – but much more besides. David Staunton, believes in the importance and benefits of ‘modelling the model’ when it comes to his facilitation approach. This explains why he hand-built the Walk Inniú Hedge School with what could only be described as ‘biblical’ tools to fashion natural and up-cycled material to create the learning space. It is literally his labour of love and homage to all things Ecopsychological, but this creation was necessary, as David believes that it is vital for group participants to encounter a first-hand, experiential knowledge of nature whilst absorbing an Introduction to Ecotherapy and Ecopsychology. Therefore what better place to congregate for growth, healing and learning then in the unique welcoming setting – that is the Hedge School.
