Connecting with nature can do wonders for your mental health. Ecotherapy, also called green therapy or nature therapy, is a type of therapy that promotes mental and emotional healing through exposure to nature. It is based on emerging principles in ecopsychology.

During nature therapy sessions, you may be asked to participate in an outdoor activity such as gardening, hiking, or planting trees. Nature therapy may also include a stroll outside to immerse yourself in nature (walk-and-talk therapy).

Ecotherapy is a great option for people who find it relaxing and calming to be outdoors. Wherever you are located in Connecticut from Bridgeport to West Haven or even New Britain, or anywhere else nearby, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

Green Therapy Benefits

While the concept of green therapy may be new to many, it is known to have the following effects on people:

  • A reduction in negative thoughts and emotions.
  • Less anxiety and stress.
  • Improved depression symptoms.
  • Better physical condition due to increased physical activity.
  • Increased mindfulness.

Nature therapy may be helpful to people who suffer from common mental health concerns, from ADHD and PTSD to dementia and depression.

If you want to know more about the merits of nature, licensed therapist Arielle Drescher wrote an article about the healing benefits of ecotherapy.
