Through experiencing the positive affects nature has on children, Adam wanted to develop outdoor educational programmes that utilised all his experience and inspiration; that could be used to help the development of children as a whole. It is his hope, that the Woodland Adventure Company will have a long lasting effect on the well-being of children and help develop their respect for the natural environment, as well have having lots and lots of fun!
Marie Dove has 10 years experience in Social Work and Education and left her post to join the Woodland Adventure Company, with her husband Adam. Marie loves being part of projects, especially when they are focused on well being and development.
Marie strongly believes that in these times of material focus, being outdoors and reconnecting with ourselves is no longer just something to enjoy but is something essential for our health and well being. Marie loves the peace and tranquillity that is felt in the woodland and is inspired by the impact this has on the children and parents that attend the sessions.
Marie loves to cook and is responsible for making the delicious pizzas for the Woodland Adventure Company’s parties and events!
Marie is also qualified in Life Coaching and Neuro Linguistic Programming and has her own practice. Inspired by nature she runs sessions in the woodland, using nature to achieve a deeper and longer lasting impact. Alongside one to one coaching, Marie also runs a monthly women’s group called ‘Campfire Conversations.’ This unique group is an amazing opportunity to come together with likeminded women, have real and authentic conversation and leave feeling a greater sense of wellbeing and connection to the natural world. If you are interested in having some life coaching or attending Campfire Conversations or want to find out more, you can contact Marie for a chat. on 07788713393 or visit: www.mariedove.co.uk
