Our hosts

Daniela Bove-Pope

Founder of Nook by Nature

Daniela is the founder of Nook by Nature born out of her passion for community, nature and wellbeing and a desire to create a space where these three things can come together to support all of you in her local community.

A psychotherapist who works in private practise and for the local GP practice, Daniela brings her expertise in mental health & wellbeing and combines this with a sense that we are best supported when we are amongst nature.

Together with her team, she has developed a range of groups that help you restore the imbalances caused by a hectic world, a busy mind and an overly stressed nervous system.

Helen Stephenson

Mindfulness in Nature

Helen has spent a life time dedicated to the practice of mindfulness. She brings this wealth of experience to benefit those who join her sessions. She works in private practice and also for the NHS as a supervisor and assessor of mindfulness teachers.

There is no better teacher than nature. The river flowing past helps us to accept and work with change, sometimes longed for, sometimes dreaded. A day ends, another day begins. Summer changes into autumn. The out breath is followed by the in breath. New possibilities, new ways of being with ourselves and others.
One rose as beautiful as the rose next to it. No comparing, just being what they were meant to be.

Claire White

Mindset Coach &
Moon Circle Facilitator

Claire is an accredited mindset coach and student of human design and astrology

Having discovered the way of living and working through the seasons and cycles of nature, she now shares this with a wide variety of people.

The moon cycle in particular has always had the strongest pull, and Claire believes that working with the phases of the moon and cyclical living can be really empowering. By looking at the ebb and flow of energy and honouring that, we can live and work as we are meant to.

Just as the moon affects the tides and the oceans, she also affects the waters within us and by working with this rather than trying to swim against the tide, we are reminded that we too are nature.

Emily Joy

EFT (Tapping) in Nature

Emily practises EFT, also known as tapping which is a form of acupressure that uses fingertip tapping in a particular sequence. A single session of tapping can turn off the stress response and significantly reduce the level of cortisol, a stress hormone that wreaks havoc on health and mental well-being. EFT can help to dissolve energy blockages, helping to reduce stress and increase feelings of inner peace.

Emily's sessions in Nature have the added support of the known grounding effects that Nature offers. Time in Nature has been linked with improved health and wellbeing, a reduction in stress, mental restoration, fewer sick days and improved ability to focus.
