Training Courses in 2021

After 8 years of offering outdoor therapy training, I formally set up The Centre for Natural Reflection in 2016 to provide a variety of opportunities for outdoor practitioners to explore and develop their outdoor practice.

On this page you will still find brief listings of the outdoor courses I currently facilitate, but all the work outlined on this page can now be viewed in fuller detail on my new sister website

Working in The Field

An Online Introduction to Ecological Transactional Analysis

Three 2 day modules (our new dates for 2021 soon)

This is an innovative introductory programme into ecotherapy and holistic edu-cation practice and theory for TA practitioners. Led by Hayley Marshall, PTSTA (P) and Giles Barrow TSTA (E), participants will be given opportunities to explore how nature, landscape and environment can provide powerful agency into clinical and educational practices

Whilst ecotherapy and holistic education have been around for some years, they have, so far, remained outside of mainstream TA theory and practice. We see this programme being at the growing edge in terms of integrating these timely, earth-spirit based themes into the work of the TA practitioner. Whether it’s with a view to healing trauma with clients, building connection to natural agency, or promoting holistic development through learning, this programme will engage the practitioner with the outdoors, as classroom or therapy space, or perhaps something quite new entirely.

The workshops will each involve extended periods working outside in the local landscapes and engage participants beyond the familiar theoretical and applied territories, into the somatic and embodied regions of what it is to be a therapist and educator. Topics will include working therapeutically with protocol, symbolic movement and experience, script, liminality, cycles of development, story and myth, clarifying vocational purpose and eldership. Practical aspects of working outdoors with clients will also be covered, and it is intended that participants try out ideas in between workshops, feeding back and having supervision incorporated into the process.

The programme is intended for an international audience and we encourage participants from across the global TA community, regardless of field of application, qualification or experience. We are drawing on our experience of already having led this programme online. Despite the apparent peculiarity of an online course focused on the outdoors, we can assure you that this really works! Participants will be spending an extended period of time outdoors and most of the on-line contact is interactive.
We will not be using PowerPoint presentations
