About Me

Hello, 

I am a level 3 Forest School Leader and a business coach who works outdoors. 

I’ve been involved in the creative industries in Scotland for around 15 years and I’ve employed over 50 people at one time or another through a small company which publishes magazines. That’s a lot of people in front of computers, for many hours. I’ve also seen the therapeutic effects of nature in the Forest School work I’ve done, and I know the benefits of getting out from behind our screens and into the woods.

Forest School Programmes

“Forest School” is a wonderful way for children and adults to connect with nature, experience the outdoors and allow those taking part to build their internal resources in a hands-on way. Our aim on our forest school programmes is to build confidence, self-esteem and allow participants to follow their own independent play journey, and we encourage regular and repeated participation in forest school sessions, whatever the weather, to allow these learnings to develop.

Right now, we’re booking for an autumn and winter Saturday Forest School Club for 5 – 11 year olds in Pollok Country Park, come play, it’s going to be a wonderful autumn!

 

Saturday Forest School Club

With a focus on learning through fun games, play and nature, these forest school sessions give children the opportunity to experience hands-on woodland based activities such as using hand tools for sawing and carving wood, making rope swings, building dens from natural materials, firelighting skills, and to get curious about all the animals that live in our beautiful Pollok Country Park.

Testimonials

“The coaching session I had with Sophie was transformative. It has really supported work I had started in therapy and allowed me to take that next step forward. I was able to visualise hurdles which helps to understand them and put them into perspective. Sophie was very intuitive and insightful and guided me to a point where I could push my boundaries. Thank you.” – Jude Galea

“Sophie’s life coaching was inspirational and has helped me move into a new phase. The session encouraged me to analyze my past and present emotional habit patterns and allowed me for the first time to interact with a potential future self; teasing out how that headspace might feel and allowing me to spend time with the person I might become… Illuminating… Thank you.” – Scott Garcia

“The session was a really interesting process and I gained a new perspective on a pressing issue in my life. It gave me a great deal of insight and some ideas for moving forward in this area. I wasn’t sure what to expect or how useful a phone session could be, but I found it to be incredibly powerful and encouraged me to consider different ways of approaching a particular challenge in my life.” – Caroline Macrory
