Where possible, a core theme of the work, including supervision and training, is "eARTherapy" (Sibbett, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2001, 2016) - a synthesis of art psychotherapy, counselling and ecotherapy. The aim is to nurture wellbeing, creativity and reciprocal caring relationship with and for the rest of nature. Committed to ecotherapeutic and 'earth caring' values, an aim is to foster creative time and space, with and for the rest of nature. This is founded on experience over several decades of facilitating therapy, training, workshops and residentials out of doors, inspired by and promoting greater connection with nature.
I am a member of the Ecopsychology and Ecotherapy Association of Ireland and the International Community of Ecopsychology.
