Ecotherapy referrals

Information for primary care and mental health and community services

Our ecotherapy sessions are free of charge and tailored for those with mild to moderate mental health related needs, such as depression, anxiety, isolation and poor confidence and self-esteem.

There is growing evidence that being active outdoors in nature helps improve mental and physical wellbeing. Our programme has an outstanding track record, with over 85% of our supported volunteers consistently reporting reduction in stress, improved mood and self-esteem, greater social connections and confidence, and mental and physical wellbeing from their time in our garden.

Watch this short film to find out more about our garden and the benefits of ecotherapy.

We are open every Wednesday and Friday and clients can choose which day suits them, and come for either the morning session (11am – 1pm) or afternoon session (2pm – 4pm), or attend both sessions. We enjoy a relaxed and social shared lunch together between sessions so clients can bring their own packed lunch.

Please read the Info Pack for Referrers for more information and download a Referral Form if you would like to refer someone to our Ecotherapy Programme.

We currently have spaces available for new clients so if you know someone who you think may benefit from our service, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Please contact our Ecotherapy Worker, Fran Reeves, at: fran@forestfarmpeacegarden.org / 07525 125 057

PLEASE NOTE: Our staff work part-time hours therefore there may be a short delay before you receive a response (allow up to 5 days).
