Welcome to Nature’s Therapy. I’m fascinated by the human relationship with nature and the role she plays in our lives and have enjoyed exploring this connection personally and through a range of disciplines, including ecology, anthropology, neuroscience and psychotherapy. Here I share my exploration with articles and commentary on the impact of nature on our health and well-being.
