ABOUT GIPPSLAND ADVENTURE THERAPY
WELLBEING / CONNECTION / NATURE
Gippsland Adventure Therapy is a youth wellbeing service that aims to increase participants mental and physical health and wellbeing. We mostly run sessions outside and our priority is your emotional and physical safety with every session being tailored for you to be inclusive and accessible
We use the empirically supported therapeutic approach of 'Feedback Informed Treatment' to ensure that we are at all times focusing on our participants needs and what they find useful to increase their mental and physical health.
This is done by facilitating adventure and mindfulness activities in the outdoors and nature.
The rest is unique to what you find ‘fun, safe and useful’.
