Nature Therapy

From saving nature to saving people

The wellbeing properties of nature have been known for centuries. At Nature Seychelles we are putting these restorative qualities to good use through our Nature Therapy programme. We work with local referral agencies in the drug rehabilitation and mental health services. We offer a structured programme of activities, such as gardening, conservation, green exercise and yoga. This provides vulnerable and dependent groups with appropriate mental, physical and practical skills to improve their livelihood options and to facilitate participation in mainstream society.

The programme helps increase self-esteem and confidence, encourages personal development and teaches respect for the environment. It teaches and develops social skills and previous participants have reported improved sleep, increased ability to concentrate and improvements in behaviour of young people.
