We are a nature-based wellbeing and education community. We focus on supporting relationships whilst immersing ourselves in the natural world. Our workshops are for families who are interested in nature connection and want to nurture their wellbeing by embracing wonder, tuning into the senses and mindful moments in the woodland. Our offerings include mindful parent and child groups, forest school, outdoor education, nature detective “tracking” workshops for children, teens, families and woodland family play therapy.
Time well spent with Cathy and our family. Very calming and creative, lovely atmosphere and soothing. Our kids still talk about this time.

Humans need connection to thrive, and we believe that it's deeply innate to our wellbeing. We work in a type of ecosystem together, just like the woodland – the “wood wide web,” where plants are in a relationship with each other and the more than human world around them. Our focus is on building relationships and immersing ourselves in the natural world.
Wood Wide Wellbeing
We provide guided workshops and experiences that embrace the soothing aspects of nature, promoting connection, calm and focus. Our belief is that Mindfulness in nature bathes our senses and nervous system. This can ease an overthinking and busy “monkey” mind.
Heartfelt Learning Habitat
We provide supportive education outdoors that offers professionals and parents/carers psychoeducation. These teachings looks at the emotional needs in children and wellbeing which is rooted in my play therapy background, mindfulness, forest school. Our aim is to provide a learning environment that feels supportive and caring to participants.
We also offer forest school for children that offers the opportunity of child led learning and playful learning through song, story and games and immersive experiences alongside guided learning
Rekindling our innate connection
strengthening our innate connections with our environment within the Nurturing relationships between parents and children is important.
We believe that by creating a supportive and nurturing environment, children can develop a positive outlook on their future, and families can develop a greater appreciation and love for nature. In the words of Richard Louv “We cannot protect something we do not love, we cannot love what we do not know, and we cannot know what we do not see. Or hear. Or sense. - Richard louv
We value connection to our Irish roots with “beagan Gaeilge”
We believe that during this time of climate change and grief it is important to find strength, hope and expression. Our offerings will enliven deep connections to our more than human world and will cultivate hope. Our community will stand strong in their wild roots as modern-day keepers of the land.
Awe and Wonder
AWe are always open to be enchanted by the magical sense of a woodland adventure. We encourage people to take the time to appreciate the awe and wonder of nature, as it helps us to develop a greater appreciation and love for the environment.
"In every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks." - John Muir
At Wild Roots children are our core focus. Our sessions while planned will adapt to the needs and experiences of the children in the group – where the beginners mind brings them to or where their senses guide them – embracing the “here and now” and its evolving qualities with a wholly open heart.
