“Holding the Space”: Wilderness Psychotherapy with Looked After Young People – Simone Silverpath

Simone Silverpath

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.
