Forest Retreat

As part of my training as a Gestalt Psychotherapy, self-care is high on my list of priorities. I found this idyllic Hobbit Hole and forest to escape to in Kent. It was the first time I’d gone away by myself and I was concerned I’d go mad or loose the plot totally. Alas, I survived!

The trip involved me running around in the forest like a mad person, using a composting loo (interesting), showering outside in the freezing cold and making dashes to the outside toilet in the night, terrified of a murderer lurking in the vast countryside that surrounded. Alas, I didn’t get murdered. I had a beautifully, nourishing time and took the time I needed to recharge, create artwork, draw dead birds (don’t ask) and reflect. I must go back soon…
