Equip yourself or your organisation to design and deliver transformative outdoor experiences.
Time outside reminds us that we are part of nature.
This can transform our psychological health and wellbeing – and encourage us to live sustainably.
My approach reveals how outdoor experiences impact our psychology, changing the ways we think, feel and behave. It shows how they can be harnessed through design and facilitation to deliver incredible outcomes for people and planet.
I’ve worked with Dave over the past few months and am grateful for the conversations on the wider world of nature connection. Dave is generous in sharing his wealth of knowledge and experience and always knows where to point me to explore more. From terminology to concept to fields of study, I feel more confident in crafting a vision for my own offerings. I especially found streamlining and consolidating my interests to reach a broader audience particularly helpful. I feel well on my way to the next steps and am richer for the learning.
The course has acted as a catalyst for all kinds of ideas and actions, both personal, professional and as a group. I think the phrase might be “watch this space”!
I thoroughly enjoyed our sessions and found David to be an inspirational, enthusiastic and sensitive coach who focused on helping me identify my particular areas of interest and feeding my curiosity. I have only scratched the surface and I hope some day to expand my knowledge further and apply it even more to my work.
When that time comes, I know who to turn to.
This is a very flexible course and very worthwhile.
Dave has helped me enormously over the past year, l have really enjoyed the coaching sessions and they have helped to develop therapeutic work outdoors with young people. I have learnt so much about the process and how to develop and structure our nature therapy sessions. I feel l have also learnt so much about how everything links up and all the connections between establishing a healthier planet in conjunction with healthier people. Thanks so much Dave.
David made me feel seen, heard, and supported throughout the journey. He is a true wealth of knowledge – and customised the course to meet my personal interests, by providing plenty of useful study resources.
I work to connect children to nature in India and his course has helped me build language and structure around my work in order to better communicate with others around me.
I have also greatly benefited from his library. The resources available there would be very hard for me to find elsewhere.
I learned a lot about myself, and this has ultimately meant I can work with other people with a much deeper understanding of change processes. I loved that the course was self governed – for me this meant I could go on my own exploration, and pull on the threads that interested me.
Dave is very attentive and flexible toward personal needs, it is less ‘teacher-student’ focused and more collaborative and supportive, which I feel is exactly what is needed in this world.
I would do the course again and again.
I am grateful for the 12 hours of coaching I had with David Key. The sessions were very helpful in opening up possibilities for how I can use an ecotherapy approach in my clinical work as a psychologist. They were also extremely valuable personally, in helping me to navigate my way into a new phase in my life. I guess you could say that they were transformational!
