Our Team

Beth Collier
Founder/Nature-based Psychotherapist
I believe that nature is intrinsic to our emotional wellbeing. I use London’s parks and woodlands as therapeutic spaces. I have a background in Anthropology and a passion for bushcraft and wildlife developed during a rural childhood. I love wild camping and spending time in woodland around the campfire, crafting with natural materials.
Jenni Bacon
Engagement Manager
When I moved to London I was a bit afraid of all the concrete and skyscrapers. Living in a tiny top-floor flat it was other people’s gardens, migrating swifts and the beautiful London planes that kept me connected to nature. Gradually I discovered that London is really full of wild and green space. Now I’m on a mission with Beth and the team to help more people connect and reconnect to the wild in this city. We’ll all feel better for it.

Wild Working Volunteer
I love the beautiful and intriguing appearance of nature. I find peace and calm being around nature. It\’s a place of meditation and soul searching for me.
Esther Potman
Forest School Leader
I believe that children and their carers benefit immensely from spending time in the outdoors. Nature provides a relaxed, but vibrant space to be active, curious, creative and imaginative. I aim to provide opportunities for children to play freely, develop new skills and grow in confidence. I love spending time by rivers and walking in the Scottish Highlands.
