Welcome to the Centre for Ecotherapy, Stanmer Park, Brighton
The Centre for Ecotherapy provides support for vulnerable people in the local community, aiming to improve and maintain well-being through the use of nature-based and horticultural therapies, mindfulness and practical activities.
Located at Stanmer Park on the outskirts of Brighton, this not-for-profit social enterprise comprises two large areas of land - an organic allotment garden and an organic wilderness area populated with trees, shrubs and plenty of wildlife.
The Centre's services include horticultural therapy, 'natural art' therapy, work days for groups, training and volunteering opportunities for therapists, students and practitioners, and opportunities for research into the effectiveness of nature-based therapies.
We also offer an outdoor space for the use of therapists wanting to take classes or groups, such as yoga and tai chi, group talking, art or drama, outside into Nature.
