NT LIFE welcomes Alice to the team

Alice wearing blue coat and green hat, leaning against treeSeptember has kickstarted the latest round of courses at NT LIFE and has also seen us welcome a new member to the team!

Alice has joined us as NT LIFE Worker and is already making a hugely positive impact.

Amongst jumping in to co-facilitation and a lot of background systems work, she is getting stuck into co-producing a brand-new Woodland Wellbeing course.

We are incredibly grateful to the four volunteers who have rolled up their sleeves, working hard to share their input to help create a course that will provide the space and opportunities for participants to:

  • Help connect more with nature and learn how this can support them in their recovery
  • Build confidence and resilience through problem solving activities
  • Develop mindfulness techniques and practices through woodland crafts, using tools, nature
    walks, identifying flora and fauna, nature journaling, fire lighting, campfire cooking and more
  • Practice slowing down, relaxing and appreciating the small beauty in nature

Alongside the addition of Woodland Wellbeing, the range of courses at NT LIFE has expanded and we’re now offering everything from DBT skills and mindfulness, to crafting, plant based cooking singing – and much more in between!

We will soon be sending out printed copies of our prospectus/posters to advertise the free courses on offer – if you would like to request printed copies/posters please email: alice.holliday@voda.org.uk.
