Bronwyn Paynter from NatureOT (formerly Flourish, nature based OT).
I am an occupational therapist with almost 30 years experience, and a passion for supporting wellbeing. I am a certified Forest & Nature Therapy Guide with the Association of Forest & Nature Therapy Guides and Programs, and a permaculture designer. Nature connection started with gardening, camping (as a girl guide) and family holidays in nature. For the last few years I’ve been coaching occupational therapists internationally in ways to work more closely with nature because there is so much evidence about how nature is the optimal environment for people to flourish. I provide Forest Bathing experiences in National Parks, for workplace groups and on the land I nurture, The Sanctuary, Yundi.
