Authentic Nature supports individuals, leaders, teams and organisations to explore the challenges of identity and belonging, while remaining authentic to themselves, their needs and their vision. Through this lens of identity and belonging, other topics such as awareness, success, purpose, power, meaning, impact, awareness, diversity and connection can also be developed. Our work is done with the support of facilitators, coaches and time in nature. Our invitation to you is to take a break from your everyday to experience the richness of this process. Our aim is to support meaningful change in the lives, businesses and communities of the people we work with. We believe that it is important for everyone to step into new perspectives, to slow down, to get physical and to adventure on a regular basis.
"My purpose is to connect people, teams and organisations to their deepest levels of self-awareness. This involves a self-honesty that continuously seeks to find the deepest truth that is available to ourselves. It is about connecting to what’s real for each of us rather than relying on the narratives that have been conditioned into us. I coach to wake people up to their potential, their authenticity, their happiness and their success. I have found, through my own personal experience and working with clients, that nature is a powerful ally in this ongoing process. I partner with nature to help others to develop their own awareness and strength, to find their own identity, meaning, success and belonging."

A Perspective on Nature
"The natural world is an incredible wonder that inspires us all. It underpins our economy, our society, indeed our very existence. Our forests, rivers, oceans and soils provide us with the food we eat, the air we breathe, the water we irrigate our crops with. We also rely on them for numerous other goods and services we depend on for our health, happiness and prosperity.
These natural assets are often called the world's 'natural capital'. These benefits are also hugely important to the economy – from farming and forestry to leisure and tourism. If you add them all up, the total value of these benefits is phenomenal – at least US$125 trillion every year.
Because nature is free, we often take it for granted and overexploit it. We clear forests, overfish oceans, pollute rivers and build over wetlands without taking account of the impact this will have. By not taking into account the benefits we get from nature, we create huge social and economic costs for ourselves."
