more about me, Cath Wright
My name is Cath Wright and I am a qualified Nature and Forest Therapy Guide with the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides. Over the years I’ve sometimes struggled to get suitable help when life has got a bit out of hand, and I see the effects this has on me and those around me. I believe in the benefits of ‘self-care’ and ‘self-soothing’; but I recognise that when you feel like you’re 'drowning in treacle' it's easier said than done! There are a handful of things in life that truly help me relax and ensure that I can ‘breathe’ again; spending time amongst trees is one and sketching and painting is another. Nature heals...sitting, sharing space with nature, admiring beauty or simply playing amongst it...nature is awesome.
I am so aware of how lucky I am to live in such a stunning place, I don’t take it for granted and everyday I find joy in the outside world and the Cairngorms National Park. Nature makes me feel alive and always grounds me, whether I’m too high or too low – the forest brings me back to a steady level.
