Stepping Stones Counselling and Psychotherapy Limited

Ecotherapy at Stepping Stones


In 2015, Rebekah was exposed to Ecotherapy by the late Dr Martin Jordan, and discovered the incredible impact that therapy in natural spaces can have upon the client, in particular clients who are traumatised.


As a Mindful Meditation Instructor, Rebekah had historically taken clients out into parks and open spaces to benefit from reconnecting with nature, whether this was actively engaging with aspects of nature or just be simply sitting peacefully in natural surroundings.


As her therapeutic practice has expanded, Rebekah has sought to bring more of the outside into the therapeutic space, and to consider clients on an individual basis in relation to taking sessions outside where this has been appropriate. Her PhD thesis is connected to exploring the client experience of psychodynamic therapy in natural environments, and this has seen her linking to international therapists who are providing widely recognised nature based therapy, both with individual clients and within workplace settings.


Ambulance Personnel and Ecotherapy


Rebekah has noticed increasing connections between the efficacy of therapy for ambulance personnel who are traumatised and being outside in nature. Sessions held in local woodland and green spaces have proved very popular with clients seeing Rebekah for trauma focused therapy.


In 2021, significant steps were made in finding financial support to enable The Green Heart of Stepping Stones CIC (Community Interest Company) to be formed, as an arm of Stepping Stones Counselling and Psychotherapy Limited.  As we moved into 2022, The Green Heart was launched and details of this can be found here on our linked page:


https://www.thegreenheartofsteppingstones.co.uk/


The Green Heart offers an app where serving and retired ambulance personnel can either access psychoeducation, blogs, Mindful Meditations, signposting for helpful organisations and how to access support in a crisis, groups and an automatic 12 counselling sessions per year, all with Stepping Stones therapists,  for just £15 per month via subscription.


In testing our demo version, we have harnessed the thoughts of a sample group of retired and serving ambulance personnel, who have voluntarily tested our app and highly praised the potential support it will bring to their green colleagues. 


We very much look forward to welcoming you to The Green Heart of 

Stepping Stones website, to tell you more about it!


With my warmest wishes,

Rebekah
