Client lead sessions for children, young people and families in natural settings.
The Nurture in Nature ethos
Who we are and what we do
At Nurture in Nature dramatherapy (NIND) we combine both nature and therapy within one form to support well-being and therapeutic needs.
Laura (Bassingthwaighte) Hubbard is the founder of NIND.
From working as a secondary school Drama teacher in 2014, Laura felt that she wanted to give back to her students and support young people with their therapeutic needs. It was her vision to bring therapy to a natural setting.
In 2016 after training at ARU Laura qualified as a dramatherapist and went on to complete a forest school level 3 course with the Green Light Trust.
In 2017 Laura published an article in Taylor and Francis 'Taking dramatherapy into the outside space ‒ the benefits and obstacles when working with children with SEMH issues'
More recently in January 2022, Laura qualified as a clinical supervisor.
Services I Offer
Getting back to the roots
Dramatherapy one to one session
Dramatherapy is a unique type of pyschodrama that uses drama techniques such as roleplay, storytelling, creative tools, small world play, masks and puppetry to create creative distance for clients to explore their feelings.
One to one sessions provide a unique treatment plan to suit the individuals needs.
Child Social Skills Program
Building confidence and resilence
Since Covid-19, many young people and adults have had challenges with their social interactions.
These outdoor sessions work on a six week programme and are designed to build up confidence and self-esteem using problem solving within a group setting. The sessions use a mix of forest school and dramatherapy ritual as part of the work.
Sessions within school settings.
Understanding child's communication and needs within a school setting.
The outside setting is not always the best environment for some clients. Therefore school settings are a containing environment to support young people's needs.
Sessions focus on how the client communicates their needs within therapy sessions. This is then fed back in a holistic way, to the teaching team that support the client within the school setting.
