As people spend more time indoors, ecotherapy is emerging as a way to help rebuild our relationships with nature—and improve mental health.
Ecotherapy is a union between the ideas of ecopsychology and psychotherapy. Fundamental to ecotherapy is our connection to the natural world and the environment we live within. This therapy uses a range of practices in order to help us connect with nature and ultimately with our ‘inner’ nature.
