Wilderness Therapy and Wilderness Mentoring
Wilderness therapy can be defined as having two elements:
- Actively and expertly applying professional therapeutic approaches and techniques in the wilderness
- Passively facilitating and allowing the wilderness to be the therapist
eQe OUTDOORS programmes and interventions are designed to work at both of these levels:
- Our targeted Therapeutic Outdoor Interventions are explicit in their expert application of therapeutic approaches and techniques in the wilderness and woodland environments to impact specifically identified needs and objectives and specific areas of emotional intelligence. The effectiveness of eQe’s therapeutic interventions is well established (since 2002) and proven in both formal evaluation data and research and valuable anecdotal evidence.
- Our mainstream Outdoor learning, Bushcraft and Forest Schools based programmes work implicitly benefiting the individual through developing and improving wellbeing and self-esteem, exploiting the well documented positive effects of expertly guided exposure to wilderness and woodland.
