I was really buzzing when I left and genuinely feel
different: I am a more confident practitioner now. The children have benefited
hugely from Geoffrey’s ‘games’ and have responded so positively to all of them.
Teachers have noted improved listening and concentration and team work in the
classroom as well. We’re all winning! I cannot recommend this course highly
Tara Bell - 2016
Geoffrey is one of the most interesting people I have ever worked with, and one of the most humane, gentle and kind people I have ever met... He is dedicated to the cause of helping others through his professional experience... extremely positive in all his actions and can feel the individual need of the client.
I would recommend Geoffrey without a second thought...
Training with Geoffrey has been transformative. I was fortunate enough to start a 7 step
programme with him recently with the goal of learning skills to help in my
Forest Schools practice...
I would highly recommend him to anyone in the outdoor education field to improve your practice, as well as anyone requiring a counsellor or looking to understand the natural world at a deeper level.

Geoffrey's will share with you his Natural Awareness approach which has helped other professionals take a fresh look at the way they work with their clients
Natural Awareness promotes behavioural, cognitive and effective change. Geoffrey delivers an integrated approach that works synergistically with other therapies like:

Transactional Analysis (TA) - 12-Steps, Gestalt and Psychodynamic
