  • Executive Director - Senior Instructor at Adventure Therapy Ireland

    at Adventure Therapy Ireland

    June 2010 - May 2012

    Munster

    "Adventure Therapy Ireland began as a company in 2010. Being Ireland's first Adventure Therapy company means explaining what adventure therapy is... People understand that there is a potential to use talking therapies in an active manner, but have issues separating the difference between an outdoor centre teaching "hard skills" and the use of outdoor skills as a backdrop for access to nature and building communication. The "how it works" of adventurous activities, in a natural setting, to advance positive psychology takes a little longer to explain too, No, we are not advocating dropping you off in the Burren and making you walk home, barefoot - that's for Rambo! We like tea, fresh air and reasonable trips into some nice places that are well within your capacity. Nowadays there are more centres that operate similar programs. From equine therapy to dance, play and music therapies, there is an understanding that these things are normal and might even be fun!

  • Adventure Therapy

    Adventure therapy at its simplest is getting out in Nature! "Nature has a healing ability. " Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine said this a few centuries ago. Adventure therapy is also breaking with routine, getting away from our normal rhythms and patterns
    Physical exercise, greenery and fresh air are beneficial. The ability to challenge yourself, to do something new and to learn new skills adds another dimension. This process comes with a fancy title; "self efficacy,"but it simply means when you can do something new, you appreciate yourself a little bit more. At the end of the day, our job is to bring out the best in You! " - odhe.webs.com
