What Is Wilderness Therapy?

Wilderness therapy is a form of adventure therapy that involves outdoor activities for people who are dealing with emotional and behavioural issues. Wilderness therapy usually takes place in a natural setting, such as a woodland, beach or meadow. It can also take place in a city park, if there ae enough wild spaces available. Wilderness therapy is used as a tool to help to promote personal growth, self-reflection and emotional healing, gently encouraging participants to step out of their comfort zone, confront challenges and work together as a group to overcome obstacles.
