Nature Is A Powerful Facilitator For
As Such It Has Great Therapeutic Value
Natural Awareness is a Nature-based Therapy that works in the 'Here and Now'
workshops are completely extraordinary. As a natural-born cynic, I
attended the first one with a lot of doubts.
Geoffrey was working with
three young lads who had more than their fair share of troubles in life.
Although I could just have observed and filmed, Geoffrey and the lads
invited me into the workshop. I was drawn into a bubble of trust and calm
that had a very profound effect on me.
Geoffrey has a way of working - calmly, slowly, with humour - that really draws you in. His ability to connect with the natural world, and to share that connection to others, is really profound.
Games that seem simple and even child-like when described, took on a huge significance in my mind. We were all deeply affected by the experience... Amazing”.

Hello, my name is Geoffrey
I am a counsellor with an MSc in Addiction Psychology and Counselling from London South Bank University. I am a Survival, Bushcraft and Tracking Instructor. I am also the author of the book series ‘Discover Nature Awareness’.
I only work in Nature and with Nature and not in a room, I find working in a room restrictive whereas being in Nature, is very freeing and I can be more creative in nature. I have developed an intervention called Natural Awareness which is designed to help us look at ourselves through a series of activities which connects us with our innate relationship with nature.
My job is to help reconnect you with Nature - Nature does the Healing, it allows you to Change your Internal Landscape through your Experiences with your External Landscape.
“Geoffrey is unique, and defies stereo-typing. A giant of a man with a gentle soul. A soldier who believes in peace. A man who's attuned to nature and to people in all their inter-connectivity. A man to absolutely depend upon, who will bring out and hold your own emergent courage until you can hold it yourself.
And there's a real gift because whether we are delving into the unknown in ourselves or into the raw side of nature, we need to know we are with someone who can and will deal with anything that comes up. That's Geoffrey”.
