Meg started with us back in Winter of 2019 and is nearing the end of her Level 3 Forest School training. Other qualifications – Level 2-challenging behaviour, Level 2-Children and young people mental health, Level 3 Elkan course (speech and language support), Art therapy foundation course.
I have come from a background of supporting children with specialist and behavioural needs in a school environment. It was there that I first experienced the forest school ethos and space. It proved very quickly to me the benefits and positive effects it had on the children I worked with and I knew this was where I wanted to go with my professional development. Having grown up mostly outside myself and being lucky enough to have a solid foundation of a community around me, I know just how powerful these can be at holding us through the challenges and waves that life can bring. It was not long before I moved to the woods permanently as my place of work and I am extremely passionate about connecting us as people back to ourselves, each other and nature in order to build resilient individuals and communities.
