What is Eco-Therapy?....

In it’s simplest form, eco-therapy is about getting out in nature. Regular interaction with natural ecosystems has been proven to release serotonin, a natural mood stabiliser which controls wellbeing, happiness and healthy sleep patterns. We simply can’t argue the importance of Vitamin D (sunlight), breathing fresh air, physical activity, engaging the senses and reconnecting with the cycles of life. As humans, we have interacted with, and relied upon nature since the dawn of time. When we live intrinsically with the natural cycles, we inherently adopt the values of reciprocity and ignite compassion, creativity, playfulness and joy. 

When I'm having a tough time, the first thing I do is kick off my shoes, grab my surfboard, or lace up my hiking boots. Time in nature soothes our nervous system so we can breathe again. She sparks our creativity by igniting the senses. She encourages us to think outside the box as we marvel at her intricacies. She reminds us of the joy of simply moving, and the awe of our connection to something bigger. Seeking nature is simply coming home! 

We are blessed on the Gold Coast with beautiful beaches and majestic landscapes to explore. For over a decade I've shared my passion for nature with kids, teens and adults of all abilities, all over the country. As an ASI qualified surf coach, experienced wilderness guide, and NDIS provider, it would be my honour and my joy to support you to learn a new skill and challenge yourself in the great outdoors. 

If you are curious about how personalised mentoring combined with surf lessons, hiking, wilderness experiences or nature play, could benefit you or your little ones, please get in touch. I’d love to discuss how my passions can ignite your wellbeing.

I was feeling a bit lost and off track before I met Amanda and spent some time with her surf therapy. Her truthful and down to earth energy and guidance helped me get my mojo back, giving me energy and motivation to get back on my purpose. I also found I had a very negative undertone in my thinking and just becoming aware of this helped me change the way I look at my day to day life from my own self care and helping others.

Thanks Amanda, you've had such a positive impact on me over the past few months... You're a legend!!
