green prescription initiative

We run a Green Prescription Initiative, where we are offering an ecotherapy intervention for people (aged 18+) who are experiencing stress or mental health difficulties to promote health and wellbeing. The intervention is delivered in a group format. It is a rolling group, run for two hours per session, and takes place in two outdoor locations in South Dublin and Wicklow. Intervention components include: nature contact; mindfulness; physical activity; expressive arts; and social connection. We accept self-referrals, referrals from GPs, and other health professionals. For further details, please email shirley_gleeson@hotmail.com.

 

Forest Therapy (Also known as Shinrin-Yoku)

We run Forest Therapy or Shinrin-Yoku walks in parks, gardens and forests; nationally and internationally. These are gentle guided walks that enhance wellbeing through sensory connection in nature. There is a strong evidence base supporting these walks. Forest Therapy or Shinrin-Yoku walks have been shown to reduce stress, lower blood pressure, improve mood, boost the immune system and improve sleep.
