Therapeutic Woodland Sessions

Nes Bear has worked with children for over 10 years, in a social work setting, as a youth worker with disadvantaged teenagers, teaching SEAL and social skills in a PRU as well as a primary school teacher. Nes is a qualified (QTS) and experienced teacher and qualified Level 3 Forest School practitioner. She offers therapeutic and nurturing sessions outdoors that will help children develop skills that will benefit behaviour in the classroom. This may be particularly beneficial to Pupil Premium pupils.

Studies have shown that therapeutic work in a woodland environment can benefit internally and externally.

Internally, in areas of personal development through

  • self discovery
  • self respect
  • emotional intelligence
  • wellbeing
  • true self esteem (doing the right thing because they choose to, rather than because they have been told to)
  • being able to cope with change and making transitions in life

Externally, in areas such as

  • Rites of passage – making decisions and dealing with changes in our lives
  • respect for others and diversity
  • social skills
  • confidence, leadership and teamwork
  • responsibility for self and change
  • strategy and planning in one’s own life and situation
  • decision making
  • assessing risk
  • confidence and communication
