We decided to set up Wessex Wilderness Skills as a Community Interest Company, with the main aim of bringing the healing elements of nature through the provision of bushcraft skills, to all members of the community.
Our objectives are to promote physical and mental wellbeing, assist in an alternative form of stress reduction and provide an inclusive and welcoming environment to those experiencing social and domestic problems.
As well as offering various bushcraft experiences to individuals, groups and especially families, the principles of our main aim still remains to benefit and encompass all of the community who seek a positive outdoor learning experience.
For families, individuals, groups and corporate days please see the options available under the preceeding tabs.
We provide a great experience within the woodland, one which you won't forget in a hurry.
You will come away feeling more connected with nature and have a sense of self reliance that only learning these skills can give you.
We are now running 2 hour sessions within the woodland. We would like to invite those seeking a more meditative approach to come along and experience a guided meditation. We will be occassionally empolying the Ancient practises of Qi Gong to promote a feeling of inner calmness and peace while also benefitting from a beautiful woodland.
Who we work with
We are accessing statutory orginisations, charities, clubs, medical and mental health services to signpost their clients/patients/service users to us via
We believe the beneficial value of this service will assist in aiding the recovery of any person suffering with stress related issues, mental/physical difficulties and social and domestic problems through self- awareness and an attainment of goal setting and achievement, in an environment that enhances peace and recentering.
Where we are able we will try to provide either subsidised or free places.
