Wilderness Psychotherapy is at the cutting edge of psychotherapy. Child at Heart works with the Four Shields, an earth based ecopsychology model that acknowledges the cycles and seasons in nature and how they affect our lives, in other words, we show our clients how to work with the teachings of the land.
We take young people through the Four Shields, which are a psychological and physical map of all nature, of which we are a part. We bring young people into Holding the Space, a radical approach to working with trauma and abuse. This is a therapeutic model that focuses on the building of community and on non violent conflict resolution.Read More
