  • Stress management through nature for companies and individuals

    Good mental health is everyone's business

  • Are your employees stressed and unproductive?

    How can you help your staff and provide for their wellbeing?

    Our nature sensory workshops can show insights into workplace stress management and take home tools for everyday use.

    Learn new stress management tools and techniques through nature, get the opportunity and the permission to immerse yourself in nature by engaging your senses. Happiness, satisfaction, health, wellbeing and resilience are a workshop away.

    Good mental health is everyone’s business.

    Working nationally our wildlife gardening lectures (other lectures are also available.), tutorials and consultations, plus nature sensory workshops showcasing nature as a pain/stress management tool can help business people, individuals and families to become more connected to nature in their own personal experiences, and the world around them.

     

    Stuart ‘The Wildman’ Mabbutt uses sensory engagement to nature to manage his own pain from Rheumatoid Arthritis and hopes to, in collaboration with Oxford University drive forward the understanding behind what’s going on in the human body that allows him to do this.

    He is also developing a stage show concept which will showcase our roadshow content and take it to a new audience in theatres.

    He’s working on a countryside retreat concept called ‘NATURE’S FESTIVAL – Retreat Into Nature, Nature Nurtures, Nurtured by Nature’. A retreat that empowers us to give back to nature and not just take from it.

    Plus filming for a new countryside TV show ‘The People’s Countryside’ and presenting the radio show Going Wild With Wildlife.

    The Wildman is available to write guest blog’s/articles and is a registered speaker for the Royal Horticultural Society, and fully DBS checked to work with children.

  • Discover our Corporate and public nature sensory workshops for pain, peace and stress management

    Good mental health is everyone's business

  • Who might attend our workshops and why?

    (we can arrange for our corporate workshops to be filmed)

    The more technology we have in our lives the more important it is to ‘leave space’ for nature.

    Workshops involve hands on interactive sensory engagement with nature, using the 5 main senses, and based on the techniques Stuart uses to manage his own Rheumatoid Arthritis.

    Ideal for adults and as a family activity and designed to open the mind and senses to nature, to observe and experience not to name and catalogue.

    Provides an opportunity to appreciate nature on a much richer level and reveals tools for use in the workplace to manage stress.

    Enjoy a much deeper quality of connection with your environment. 2, 4 and 8 hr workshops available.

    We facilitate our own workshops, have numerous collaborators, and make guest appearances to form part of the programme at other venues and their outdoor activity programmes nationally.
