Ecotherapy - Healing through the Colours of Nature
Trevor Mayes the proprietor of Colour Counselling Therapy Healing has just announced a new information website colour-therapy.org to promote his new ecotherapy services.
The Ecotherapy website includes online articles on healing and dealing with stress at home and at work. There are slide shows for meditation and to relax during a break or in the evening when you get home stressed out from a hard day. There are counselling and advice services at a very reasonable fixed price together, with ecotherapy walks from spring to autumn 2009 in the west Wales area. The walks will be in the beautiful countryside and coastal areas of Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire and the Preseli Mountains, while mainly for and individuals, parties can also be catered for by arrangement.
What is Ecotherapy?
It is well known that the first and perhaps the major symptoms of stress or mental illness is the breakdown between a person and the people around them. The effect of this can be seen in the home and the work place leading to erratic behaviour, strained relationships and social isolation. There is also an ecological element to this condition, we as humans suffer these problems because we have the ability to think and reason, therefore we may see ourselves as being apart and perhaps superior to the natural world.
However, despite this air of superiority we still retain primal animal instincts that manifest themselves when we become mentally ill, are under stress or a perceived threat. Some people advocate that ecotherapy is about mending this rift between people and nature in order to become whole, reconnect with the natural world around us, and put an end to a vicious circle of abuse through direct experience of wild nature. Incorporated within ecotherapy is the awareness of current ecological issues and the sustainability of our life style with regard to the damage it does to planet Earth.
Ecotherapy and Colour Therapy
The basis for combining these two therapies is that while we are highly evolved animals we still respond to the colours in nature in an instinctive way the same as other species. Generally, this instinct is based upon the need to look and feel good in order to attract a mate, it also relates to the need for sunlight to regulate our body clock; we need to connect with nature to keep fit and healthy.
Therefore, colour therapy as part of ecotherapy addresses our primal needs and instincts that allow us to work in the environment that we have created. Once these needs have been met, we as humans can move on to talk about these issues on the thinking and talking level of psychology and therapy, in order to bring about a positive change in our lives and the world around us.
For example, simply connecting with nature and getting out into green open spaces for a bit of ecotherapy is for some people an achievement;
