Nicolette Evans: Nature Works Wonders (ep04)

“People forget how to walk slowly and to notice nature. People just run around too fast. And literally walk to fast and just don’t see what’s under their feet and in front of them as well.  And when people slow down their pace and notice those things then it just distracts us from  people’s, what else people going on in their lives as well and takes them to a different level as well.”

IIn this episode I welcome Nicolette Evans, facilitator of mindful nature walks in woods, forests and green spaces around Berkshire, and guide on ways to reconnect with the healing power of ‘being in nature’ to boost mental and physical health.

In our episode we talk about why we need nature, what happens when we’re outdoor, how we can use modern technology to enhance nature connectedness and why making a pause is rewarding.

Nicolette is a Mental Health First Aider and a trained natural mindfulness guide. She does natural mindfulness walks, nature connection, mindful nature photography and essential oils as well.

In her mindful nature walks Nicolette brings and corporates ‘forest bathing’ sessions in woods, forests and green spaces around Berkshire. She loves guiding people on ways to reconnect with the healing power of ‘being in nature’ to boost their mental and physical health. By using gentle nature-based activities and uplifting essential oils, these one to two hour-long sessions will give people tools to feel reinvigorated, more resilient and relaxed.

Her values are connection, creativity and freedom, which she uses in these sessions to bring people together. Nicolette loves seeing people grow in confidence, making new friends and sharing or learning new skills.
