Spending time with Geoffrey on a 1:2:1 basis on the Nature Therapy course enabled me to go much deeper with my forest school teaching. I was expecting to develop my teaching and thus the children’s learning but I was not expecting to connect more with myself. I often thought… how did I do that?

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 enough.


Tara Bell - 2016
During the interview I talk about my approach to counselling in nature. Working in rehab and in nature helped me to develop my Natural Awareness Programme too the level it is at today.

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...


Tiago Mortensen. Senior Counsellor

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.
