Your Forest Therapy Guide
THE FOREST IS THE THERAPIST,
THE GUIDE OPENS THE DOOR…
My name is Kira and I’m a Forest Therapy Guide based in Brisbane. My passion lies with environmental sustainability and holistic wellbeing. In 2019, I achieved an Environmental Science degree with Honours. I am channeling my understanding of nature’s interconnected systems to focus on the human-nature connection that is fundamental to our wellbeing.
Nature’s landscapes are a place of inspiration and peace, healing and growth for me. To share that with you and help the greater community to mindfully engage with the world is my passion and purpose.
Kira is certified and accredited by the International Nature and Forest Therapy Alliance, which means she can excellently;
- plan, manage and guide high-quality Forest Therapy sessions in accordance with international standards set and monitored by INFTA, and
- recognise and integrate core skills and approaches required to conduct Forest Therapy sessions, and
- understand the different ways in which humans experience and relate to natural environments, and
- support all participants to become more nature-connected and develop environmental awareness, and
- identify community groups, land managers, parks and other authorities to plan and operate safely on public and private land in accordance with all relevant legal requirements.
The International Nature and Forest Therapy Alliance (INFTA) is committed to establish Forest Therapy as scientifically-proven natural medicine by building networks and establishing partnerships with research, education and Public health bodies across the globe. Through these networks, INFTA will access studies, contribute to research on and create awareness about Forest Therapy and Forest Medicine. INFTA’s mission is to make Forest Therapy accessible to all for the health and well-being of people world-wide. As the key player in formulating the International Core Curriculum on Forest Therapy (ICCFT) as part of an international network and collaboration, INFTA certifies and accredits training providers and Forest Therapy guides.
