“I live in the woods of a country estate where I work.  My background is in nursing, I retrained when I was 29 in Horticulture as I have always had a love of all things nature. I starting working for a charity called Horticap delivering Horticulture as therapy to adults with a wide range of learning disabilities.

I was given the job of Curator of Thorp Perrow Arboretum 7yrs ago, I still do this part time. In 2012 I created an education garden within the Arboretum with a group from Help for Heroes, Phoenix House recovery centre, Catterick, they offered me a job as garden projects leader in 2013, I still do this one day per week.

I came across Forest Bathing through my Mindfulness and Reiki practice. Help for Heroes started to deliver Health and Wellbeing courses for serving personnel and beneficiaries at the centre I work in. I offered Forest bathing as a therapeutic activity and it has been part of the course since it began.
